Default Amsoil Price.

I have never bought AmsOil for my Sportster, but today when I was in my local Rural King store.....I noticed they sell the 20-50 for Harley Twins for $11.99....I did not know that was the price....I pay more for Mobil one 20-50....so what is the going price for Amsoil....I always thought it was more than that. Perhaps I should go buy my 4 quarts now. Help, let me know if this is a bargain.

Amsoil shows a retail price of $13.35 for the Vtwin 20w-50.

http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...il/motorcycle/

Here is another for $13.00
http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...IQT-EA&zo=5931

They do offer commercial / dealer accounts that can save 25-30%

Amsoil is a small blending company. They have no refineries and have to purchase their base stocks from others. They get most of their Group IV Polyalphaolefins from Exxon Mobil the largest manufacturer of synthetic oils in the world. Their group 3 oils come from petro Canada and Shell. Their add packs come from Lubrizol.
