Dealer Dan McKinty of Lincoln, Nebraska has a satisfied customer who is nearing his goal of acquiring one million miles on his vehicle. Floyd Erks is a proud user of AMSOIL lubricants in all of his vehicles, but his van’s long history of AMSOIL use and high mileage really sets it apart from the crowd.
Erks owns a 1993 Ford Aero Star Minivan with a 4.0 liter engine that has never been rebuilt. To date, the van has accumulated 731,000 miles of service, and Erks sees no reason why it won’t reach the million- mile milestone. Erks used AMSOIL 5W-30 motor oil for the first 25,000 miles, then switched over to AMSOIL Series 2000 0W-30 and SDF Oil Filters and changes the oil only once every 35,000 miles. Since he switched his van over to AMSOIL ATF he has also put 300,000 miles on the same transmission. He also regularly uses AMSOIL 75W-90 Gear Lube and Multi-Purpose Grease.
Erks says that he drives a minimum of 300 miles a day while working for his courier service. At that rate, he may attain his goal of one million miles in only two or three years.
