Errata: Amsoil is considering becoming an advertiser. I dig their products and (as with V1 radar detectors) can personally recommend them, not because they pay me to but because the products are top-drawer. I’d like to to ask any of you who are willing to let Amsoil know you’d like to see them as an advertiser here; that you also like (and use) their products.
It would be a big help – and take some of the pressure off. Write in c/o: firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile, we’re off to a slow start for the month. I’m still trying to figure out how to get that critical 10 percent or so of EPautos.com’s regular readers to regularly chip in $5 or so a month. It’d be ideal if we could get 20 percent to send $1 a month in – but this is a tough nut to crack and not just for EPautos. I’ve talked with other Libertarian and alternative media editors and writers about this, as most of you know already. It is extremely difficult for even a site with a big audience to keep its head above the waterline. People seem to want alternatives to the press kit media; but getting them to support those alternatives… well, that’s the walnut we’re all trying to figure out how to crack.
The only reason I’m able to do this is because of my “van down by the river” lifestyle, but that’s a tenuous existence. I mentioned before I’m doing all this on an almost eight-year-old Mac that’s becoming obviously senile. I’m also on my own, pretty much, tech support wise. The “staff” at EPautos is down to one. Me.
I’m hoping I’ll be able to at least put a Tech Guy on retainer, to be there to deal with future bugs (inevitable) and also to keep things running smoothly.
I’m also hoping I’ll be able to retire this poor old iMac in favor of one that doesn’t operate at dial-up speed and have to be unplugged and re-started 4-7 times a day to make it work.

I’d advertise….but it would be for my evil insurance company I own.
(Insert dr. evil laugh here!!)
But I did send money since I support your work.
So, chip in enough to keep the tabs on the van registered. Help keep the gas tank full. Make sure it passes smog and all that. Seems doable.
It’s weird, I was just musing about AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil the other day. It seems to me it represents the pinnacle of lubrication science.
I get mine from a lawyer who works as a bill collector for American companies down in Mexico. Better Call Saul, is my nickname for him. It nice to have someone like him as a contact. You just never know, plus it’s an astounding product, as you already know.
Anyway, sorry to ramble on so, but AMSOIL clearly is the result of nearly 40 years of synthetic lubricant engineering. For the unitiated, give it a try, you’ll see it brings not only industry-leading performance to your machine, but it brings top value as well.
Heck, its extended-drain performance delivers guaranteed protection for up to
25,000 miles or one year. You can’t lose.
Using this product offers a rare combination of performance, value and environmental responsibility. It dramatically outperforms conventional petroleum oils, reduces friction heat, and wear for maximum power performance and fuel efficiency. I’ve witnessed that first hand, and can vouch for all of it.
I only tout stuff I can personally recommend, stuff I actually use myself.
I’d feel skeevy doing otherwise!
One and done, change you way of thinking, not your oil. Peace of mind, complete satisfaction, no more losing valuable time and money every few thousand miles with those quick lubers. I find it bueno to pop into a 24 hr Llantas place, without a single word rather than shuffle my UCC shackled feet winding thru the Dealer Prison Chow Line awaiting vehicle service completion and keeping my conduct certified kosher by legions of accredited automotive grand inquisitors.
eric, what a difference a couple years make. I can remember being the guy you gave hell for continually referencing Amsoil. Did you read the results of all the tests, see what they’ve done in real world or just try it?
BTW, there seems to be a fair amount of Libertarians that, simply because of what they can stand and cannot stand, are doing that van by the river thing.
I could change employers and make more money, enough to warrant doing it….but the owners are my friends and they make few demands of the lockstep marching type. I’m grandfathered in so need no DOT “inspection”(bend over baby, here comes my BULLET). We have no surprise drug tests and beyond that, No drug tests…..ever. When things are slack for a few days due to any number of factors, I’m free to pick up jobs with the company truck as I see fit. I pull into the yard, almost always because of some problem I can’t fix myself, the boss meets me and hands me a cold one, knowing the day isn’t over but it’s been a long one for me already. We eat the same beef and pork and he raises the chickens, me the hogs and bofus the cattle. WTSHTF, we’ll be better off than nearly anyone.
While we’re not kin, we are family. It makes the van by the river much easier to bear.
Go Amsoil. I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t believe it. I had little faith it would stop the “tick” in the top of that 3.1 but that’s just what it did. I didn’t really believe it would make my diesel use a fraction of it’s previous oil use….but it did. By that time I fairly well believed when I changed transmission lube and everything was slicker and smoother. I had no idea it would make my boat seem like it had a larger engine…..and only after speaking with another guy who said he felt his engine has just been super-tuned after the first time he used it in his boat, I knew mine wasn’t a fluke. Amatuzio started the company to help save his own butt(in jet fighters) and it worked out well for everyone.
Long live(it’s not looking too good right now and you can thank Con-gress)free enterprise.
