This is a question for our Amsoil sponsors, have any of you sold any of the 0w40 (AFF) to someone who runs it in an automobile? (instead of it's intended use in snowmobiles, ATVs, motorcycles) Any UOAs on it? This oil has me curious, as it's specs look very close to what might be my ideal viscosity for my LT1, with a viscosity of 74cst at 40C and 14.2cst at 100C. I also liked this quote, as this oil might help reduce my iron due to corrosion:

Copper Corrosion, Rust and Foam Inhibition AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Motor Oil protects equipment from copper corrosion and rust, even during equipment storage. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Motor Oil does not foam in service, protecting equipment from the metal-to-metal contact and wear that occurs with use of foam-filled fluids.

Friction Modifier Free AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Motor Oil contains no friction modifiers, making it ideal for ATV, outboard motor and motorcycle engines. The friction modifier free formulation of AMSOIL 4-Stroke ensures transmission (manual or automatic) and clutch compatibility and prevents slip.
