I was thinking of switching from Yamalube 4R to amsoil mcv 20w50 because I pay $8.00 a qt. for yamalube and I can get the amsoil for $6.94 a qt.:bonk: through A-Z synthetics>which is out of arizona and is a sponsor that I picked up through sponsorhouse.com. Is it that good of an oil to switch to because I would have to order a minimum of $100.00 at a time but if I stay with yamalube I would be spending a liitle more per case of 12 qt. :naughty:

I absolutely recommend Amsoil, but I use MCF (10w-40) rather than MCV. Either way, it's a much better oil than Yamalube at any price.

Well, you'll have to drain the old oil first, but otherwise, no. Just start using it.
