I started using AMSOIL’s gear lube and engine oil in my everyday cars in the early 90’s. After seeing the results of these products, my decision was an easy one to make. I’ve been driving a race car off and on since 1987 on various dirt tracks. So when I decided to build my own race car and engine, I made the decision to use the Amsoil products. With my experience, I have never had a problem from any of the AMSOIL products that I currently use. The oil keeps the engine cooler and the oil pressure doesn’t drop like the conventional oils do. It was amazing that after a couple years of racing when I decided to take my engine apart to freshen it up, I found very little wear and tear. The products seem to have kept the innards of my engine is very good shape. Due to my experience with the AMSOIL products, a couple of the guys in my racing club started to use the products in their cars also. So far, everyone that I have talked to that uses the AMSOIL products, they have had nothing but positive comments. - Tim Eaves
My name is Tim Borgfield and I have been riding and racing since I was 12 years old. I raced motorcross, then raced on the pro jet ski tour. When I started, I used whatever oil my buddies were using (or whatever the guy behind the counter at the local parts store was pushing). I have used all kinds of different oils and chemicals through the years and was lucky enough to be at a jet ski race where John and Connie were. They were the local AMSOIL dealer and were there to promote their product and support a few of the local racers. We were getting faster and having success at running with their team of AMSOIL riders. It wasn’t long before they approached me with their product. I was reluctant the first couple months and during that time, I was exploding my expensive race engines. John came over to our pits, shook his head and smiled before saying, “It’s time you make the change to AMSOIL.” So I finally switched to their so-called “super oil.” I was still leery of running an oil at such a high ratio of 50:1. At the end of season, my engine builder tore down our motors and asked if we had even ran them because they were all still within the tolerances from when they were rebuilt. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to have won many championships on my jet ski. We won Florida State Champion two years in a row. We won Midwest Water Cross Tour twice and even won a world championship. We broke the world record in slalom and held that title for two years. My jet ski days are long over now, but in recent years, I have returned to motorcross racing with my son. We called John and Connie and they helped us put together an AMSOIL program for our race team. So far, we have had zero problems with anything oil-related. We use AMSOIL for everything our bikes require: oil, gas, fork oil, transmission fluid, chain lubes and metal protection. Our team had grown to eight riders, known as 2 Brothers Racing. We compete in all different classes, all around the country. We always promote AMSOIL by sharing our success story with the products. We are on track this year to wrap up six different Missouri State Championships and two different national titles. Thank you, John and Connie, for switching me to AMSOIL that hot summer day in Fenton, Mo. And thank you AMSOIL for making such a great and far superior product. We look forward to racing and winning many more events and championships for ourselves and for AMSOIL. - Tim Borgfield
