I think the overall opinion of AMSOIL is very good, although some riders experience eye burning when using it. Very good for the sled though. I stick with OEM oil's myself.

I've used Amsoil for the past two years and love it! keeps my exhaust valves clean and functioning..... used the regular, not the 2000 series racing stuff. Polaris synthetic has been good too.

I run OEM extreme oil only in my sled.
My dealer sells it in bulk just bring a jug.
It the most cost effective and can't go wrong putting A/C oil in an A/C sled.

That's what I figure too with the OEM oil's. That way if there is ever a problem with the sled, it is one less thing to argue about with the dealer who is going to fix it.

I've always read that OEM's especially Snowmobile OEM's don't make their oil but farm it out to the lowest bidder than slap their lable on it. Then they tend to charge really high prices. The Amsoil worked a lot better than the Polaris Oil For Me. Who is making the oil for these OEM's? Kind of like Fram making Ford Motorcraft filters.
