    I know there's a few gearheads on here so I wanna get some opinions.

    I've got a blazer with over 150,000 miles on it. I run standard oil in it with no problems. However, I'm changing the tranny fluid again soon as well as the diff oil for the first time. I'm debating between Lucas, Amsoil, and Mobile 1 (all synthetic). What's been yall's experience/research with those three brands?

    None. My Avalanche had 225k on it when I traded.
    It had GM lube in it. Trans and axles.

    tranny oil w/ that many miles? i wouldn't change it just top if off...brand is coke vs pepsi on the listed types...all great brands. i prefer mobil1 but have used them all and liked them. mobile 1 products are just easier to find on the shelf

    Have nothing but good to say about Amsoil. Buddy replaced his fluids in his Rig with it, and he got a consistant 7mpg with a Grossed out load.

    I prefer Amsoil, but for some reason, its impossible to find out here. I'd have to special order it. I've heard rumor that Lucas has gone downhill. Mobile 1 seems pretty good though. I just can't find anything backing up the talk about Lucas going downhill. I've heard you can throw Amsoil in your diff and just forget about it.

    Amsoil is the best oil made. My dad was a dealer back in the '80's

    Amsoil or Lucus. Have never heard anything bad about them.

    You could also use royal purple

    I was in Advanced Auto Parts today on my quest for oil, and an older guy approaches me. By older-he's older than me. Was probably in his 40's. So he asks me what I'm looking for and I tell him Amsoil. He had never heard of it! Blew my mind!

    Just because I like amsoil-that doesn't mean the others are out of the running. I'm debating if I wanna order it, or get something else off the shelf-and what to get if I go the shelf route.
