quote:Above is direct from the webpage. Maybe I didn't write it correctly.... I do wonder if the oil is ok for a stationary dedicated, original build propane engine? The engines would be the same internally I would think, just different demand regulators for the differing fuels...
Note: AMSOIL Synthetic Natural Gas Engine Oil should not be used in automotive engines that have been modified to use propane or natural gas.
quote:Yes. When I was in college, I had a girlfriend whose father ran a gas company. He had all of his vehicles, even his personal cars, converted to run on propane. He changed the oil and filter every 12,000 miles (regular oil, not syn). I was at their house one weekend when he was changing the oil in his Mercury (460cid V8) and I swear the oil looked like brand new when it came out of the engine. If you were to use a good synthetic, and did oil analysis, it's no telling how long you could run the oil.
Originally posted by zam: So, the next question is if the oil stays cleaner longer can I go to a longer drain interval. Of course, I understand the need to do analysis (after reading this board for a while) in order to establish the correct drain interval for my application but I would think if the oil stays clean longer that I could change it less often.
