I switched to the Amalie about 7 months ago. 2 oil changes and no issues. Same specs as aeroshell but they don't have to pay all the extra attorneys and insurances by calling it aircraft oil. Only major problem I have with the oil is whomever they put in charge of making their label didn't realize the boat they used is a carmotor-boat! :violent1:
