Is Amsoil worth it

I am looking to switch all of my fluids to amsoil (oil/filter, axles, tranny). My question is is it really the best lubricant both mechanically and for longevity? I'm not worried about the cost since quality to me is worth it especially if I can stretch out my intervals of changing them. Also what are folks finding to be the best OEM fuel filter for there dmax?

I use it and love it use extended oil change intervals but i don't have the emissions crap. When i first put it in did rear and front diff and engine w/bipass and i know fuel milage increased some people don't believe it but i know it went up about 1.5 mpg overall.

these threads always end in people getting stupid...i will save you a lot of trouble here and tell you the best oil:

rotella, delo, delvac, amsoil, petro canada, and any other oil you can buy...no matter how many times its been asked the answer is always the same...the best oil is what you prefer.

edit:

look at it this way, there are no threads on here saying i put amsoil in my truck and now it wont start, or the engine froze, or my egr exploded, or my the oil pan rotted through, etc. the same goes for the others...

there are threads/posts claiming more power, less noise, better fuel mileage, etc from amsoil...the same goes for the others. are they true YES, are they false YES

do you understand what im saying bud? im not trying to be a dick at all, im just tellin ya how it is with this topic.

if you use anything other than psdk you are a moron and your truck is going to turn into a dodge with a powerstroke conversion.
