Why is AMSOIL Synthetic Oil Better?

Watch this Informative Video


NOACK Volatility Test is a Critical Measurement of Motor Oil Quality

AMSOIL was the first motor oil company in North America to use the NOACK volatility test to measure motor oil quality and performance. Although competing motor oil companies initially paid no attention to NOACK results, the test has since become a critical measurement tool throughout the industry.

Modern engine designs generate more heat than ever, accentuating the importance of the NOACK volatility test for determining an oil's ability to provide an adequate level of protection and performance. More horsepower, turbo chargers and aerodynamic styling have created extremely hot environments that receive less cooling from outside air, and high heat leads to oil oxidation, deposits and thickening in conventional oils.

Top quality for the current API SM motor oils specification, gasoline motor oils cannot experience a weight loss of more than 15 percent in the NOACK test. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils were exceeding modern requirements over 20 years ago, while many current motor oils still have a hard time meeting this minimal requirement, increasing wear, fuel consumption and emissions.

As seen in the graph, AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil easily passes the NOACK Test and falls well below the the maximum 15 percent volatilization (burn off) rate dictated by the API SM motor oil specification, while the Royal Purple volatilization (burn off) rate is over 11 percent and the Lucas Oil FAILS the test with a volatilization (burn off) rate of over 40 percent.

AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants Excel In Temperature Extremes

Perhaps Better Known for Their Cold-Temperature Benefits, Synthetics Are Equally Beneficial in Extreme Heat.

TECH TALK

Dan Peterson
Vice President, Technical Development

Summer is on its way, and thank goodness; this winter has really been hard on everything! Wildlife, water mains, heating budgets, people - and our vehicles - have all suffered through this winter. As of Februaty 11, 2014, Duluth, Minnesota. marked 23 consecutive days with a low temperature below zero. The last day a low temperature was zero or above was January. 19, with a low of 13 degrees Fahrenheit.

We often think about synthetics' low-temperature properties - maintaining flow in sub-zero conditons to lubricate vital components and ensure startups on the coldest mornings - but with a hint of spring on the horizon it's time to get ready for summer. One of the many benefits of synthetic motor oils is their excellent all-weather performance. What happens to lubricants during the dog days of summer in the desert Southwest where daytime temperatures routinely climb above 100 degrees Fahrenheit? Driving a vehicle under these conditions stresses lubricants also, but in different ways than driving in subzero temperatures.

Hot operating conditions subject oils to stress that can result in sludge and varnish formation in your engine and transmission, resulting in major damage. There are a bunch of tests that can be run on used oil to help predict sludge and varnish formation, including oxidation, nitro-oxidation, viscosity increase and total base number (TBN) depletion. If you are not interested in becoming a used-oil analysis expert, make sure to pick lubricants proven to withstand the heat. One of the main differentiators of lubricants is how long they can effectively fight sludge and varnish formation. In the southern half of the United States, the chemical reactions that create sludge and varnish are accelerated with high temperatures. As a general rule, chemical reaction rates, including sludge and varnish formation, double with every 10 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit) rise in temperature. So if you live in Phoenix, your vehicle lubricants better be designed to hold up to these accelerated reaction rates. It takes detailed knowledge of lubricant chemistry and field experience to get it right.

Keeping surfaces effectively separated to reduce friction is another concern down in Phoenix, Arizona, during the summer. Reducing friction will reduce the amount of heat that is generated, which will lower the operating temperature of the component. Anti-wear components help maintain this separation of surfaces, but lubricant thickness is the main mechanism.

When oil gets too thin, friction and heat are generated. Since lubricants generally thin as temperatures go up, they need to be designed to provide effective separation at the highest expected operating temperature. An oil's base stock and formulation influence this property, called viscosity index (VI), which indicates the change in oil viscosity in relation to temperature. Oils with high viscosity indices have smaller changes in viscosity due to temperature changes than do oils with low viscosity indices; therefore, it is desirable for oils to have higher viscosity indices. As you might expect, synthetic motor oils have higher viscosity indices than conventional mineral-based oils do.

We also rely on engine oil to absorb heat from the contact surface area and transport it to a location where it can be safely dissipated (an oil cooler or sump). As oils age, they cannot carry away as much heat, so temperatures increase, accelerating the chemical reactions which result in sludge and varnish.

Hot summer temperatures were part of the challenge facing AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil and Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid during the 2011-12 Las Vegas Taxi Cab Field Study. Over the course of 18 months, test vehicles operated in the fleet's service area of Las Vegas up to 24 consecutive hours daily, accumulating more than 7,000 hours of service. Like most taxi cabs, the vehicles operated in stop-and-go conditions where excessive idling is the norm, but they also faced the grueling summer temps of Vegas where daytime highs often exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Hour after hour, day after day, under such punishing conditions, AMSOIL lubricants proved up to the task. Engine and transmission components from the test vehicles were later examined and found to have minimal or no notable wear, even after practicing extended drain intervals.

Few of us operate our vehicles under such severe settings, but it is reassuring to know that AMSOIL synthetic motor oils provide outstanding wear protection and superior high-temperature performance in the harshest conditions. The next time you're driving during one of those summer scorchers or battling stop-and-go traffic, be assured that AMSOIL synthetic motor oil is working hard under the hood to keep your engine running cool.

AMSOIL 409,000-Mile Oil Drain Interval Mack Engine Teardown

Haywood Grey went 409,000-miles without an oil change in his Mack E7-400After 409,000 miles without an oil change, the AMSOIL-protected Mack E7-400 engine in this truck was as wear-free as an engine in comparable service treated to TWENTY TIMES the oil changes.

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VIRGINIA - "I didn't see any surprises in there at all. Based on my experience with AMSOIL Motor Oil, it came out the way we expected," said owner/ operator Haywood Gray (left) of his 1990 Mack E7-400 engine. It came out in good shape, exactly what you'd expect for a well-maintained engine with 630,000 miles. Yet the engine's oil had not been changed for 409,000 miles!

Gray began using AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine 15W-40 Motor Oil (AME) in the E9-400 V-8 engine of his first truck, a 1984 Mack, after the engine accumulated 45,000 miles. For 280,000 miles, Gray changed his oil at 40,000-to 60,000-mile intervals though his oil analysis reports showed, without exception, that the oil was good for continued use. At 325,000 miles, Gray increased his oil drain interval to 100,000 miles. The engine was torn down at 600,000 miles when Gray decided to sell the truck. (read more)


Dodge Dually Surpasses 633,000 Miles With AMSOIL Lubes

Brad Walthour of Sunbury, Ohio speaks from experience when he talks about the qualities and benefits of AMSOIL lubes and filters.

"I rely solely on AMSOIL products to protect my investment in a wide range of outside temperatures on various and challenging terrain," Walthour said. He uses AMSOIL Cold Flow Improver during the cold months. "The fuel has never gelled," he said. "The engine and transmission have never been dismantled, rebuilt or replaced." He averages 26 mpg an 55 miles per hour when he's not towing anything and 11.5 to 14 mpg when towing. He calculates his oil change savings with AMSOIL products to be $300 a year, which doesn't include the added protection against wear and extreme temperatures. (read more)


Truck Driver Takes Big Savings to the Bank Using AMSOIL Products

Terry Anderson Jr. of Chesapeake, Virginia saves money, time and fuel using AMSOIL products.

In fact, he saved $5,679 the first year he switched to AMSOIL lubes, filters and additives.

TAKING SAVINGS TO THE BANK - Terry Anderson with his 2005 Peterbilt dump truck. Anderson reports savings of $5,679 in one year using AMSOIL lubes and filters.

Anderson, owner of Terry Anderson Jr. Hauling Inc., owns and operates a 2005 Peterbilt dump truck with a Cat C-7 engine. He first installed AMSOIL 15W-40 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Motor Oil and an AMSOIL Ea Oil Filter in the truck. About a month later, he installed an AMSOIL By-Pass Filtration System.

"Initially, I was concerned about the upfront cost of about $400, but soon found out it was money well spent," he said.

Used oil analysis at 10,000 and 25,000 miles deemed the oil suitable for continued use, and he continued to run on the same oil.

"I changed my full flow filter after the second sample was sent in," Anderson said. "The money I saved on oil alone in the first 25,000 miles paid for the by-pass filter system." At one year, and more than 50,000 miles on the same oil, a third oil analysis reported the oil good for continued use. "The savings in the oil changes alone is enough to justify using AMSOIL and the by-pass filter system," Anderson said. "More surprising was the increased fuel efficiency I saw on a daily basis."

He typically changes the oil in the Peterbilt four or five times a year at $159 each change. "That is $759 a year." He said. "I didn't have to get my hands dirty changing the oil at all for a year thanks to AMSOIL and the by-pass filter system."

Anderson also realized increased fuel efficiency. "After changing my Peterbilt over to AMSOIL lubricants and filters, I saw an increase in my fuel efficiency of one mile per gallon," he said. His fuel efficiency increased again when he used AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate and Cetane Boost. "MPG is huge in my world," Anderson said. "The more miles I can go on one gallon, the more money I put in the bank."

With diesel fuel prices being so high, AMSOIL lubricants, filters and additives have saves Anderson's company about $30 a day in improved fuel efficiency.

Savings he realized in the first 15 days with AMSOIL products paid for his initial investment, Anderson said. "The remainder of the year that $30 a day went straight to the bank along with the savings from the extended drain intervals." (see savings chart)


Trucker Saves Thousands with AMSOIL

Blake Thompson is one happy trucker - in front of his first tractor trailer that he switched over to AMSOIL products.

Blake Thompson is one happy trucker.

Using AMSOIL products in his diesel engines saved him $5,000 in fuel costs in one year.

In 2006, Thompson was a diesel mechanic in Fortville, Indiana when he fist became familiar with AMSOIL products. Thompson had a dream of owning his own trucking company.

In November 2007, Thompson bought his first diesel tractor - a 1999 International with an M11 Cummins engine, an Eaton 4-9 transmission, five low-range gears, four high-range gears and a twin screw (two differentials) rear-end. "It was in beautiful shape with 580,000 original miles," Thompson said.

Thompson is now a local hauler with two trailers. He uses one for hauling wood products - sawdust and wood chips, and the other for agricultural products, including corn and soy beans. The truck and tractor have a maximum gross weight of 80,000 pounds.

Thompson had his truck for only a short time before he switched to AMSOIL. With 590,000 miles on his tractor, he signed on the dotted line to become a commercial account. He purchased AMSOIL Engine Flush (AEF) and twin packs of AMSOIL 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil (AME).

Thompson said he is more than happy he switched to AMSOIL products. He reports that while towing his hopper trailer his fuel mileage increased from 5.5 to 6.0 miles per gallon. While towing his walking floor trailer the fuel mileage increased from 6.0 to 6.5 miles per gallon.

Oil analysis at 10,000 and 20,000 miles showed the oil was "good for continued use." Typical oil drain intervals for the big diesel engine is 20,000 miles.

Thompson was spending $75,000 a year on fuel. After investing $500 in AMSOIL products, he is spending $69,500 a year on fuel. That's a savings of $5,000 per year!

Thompson is considering using oil analysis to extend his oil drain intervals even further, but Thompson said he is so happy about the fuel savings that he is satisfied changing the oil at his current drain intervals.

Thompson also uses AMSOIL Synthetic 5th Wheel Grease (GFW) "because it goes on easy and stays where you put it." He can also see the difference in the spring shackles and king pins with AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Grease (GHD). Thompson says he used to have to pump several pumps, with brand X grease, before the grease started squeezing out. Now when he starts to pump the grease gun, the grease immediately starts to squeeze out of the joints. "That shows that the AMSOIL Heavy Duty Grease stays where you put it."

Thompson's business is growing. He recently bought another used tractor that has more than 470,000 miles on the engine. He says he will use AMSOIL 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Motor Oil in that one too, and he is eager to try the gear lube in his bearings, transmission and differentials.

Thompson has continued to buy AMSOIL 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Motor Oil, Oil Sample Kits, Heavy Duty Grease and 5th Wheel Grease.

Lube Specialist Praises AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil

Hello,

AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil
Power Under Pressure - AMSOIL customer Sam Vallas trusts AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil to deliver the power he needs.

You'll notice by my signature below that I am an employee of Chevron Global Lubricants. I am a training specialist and field engineer for our North American lubricants division. I originally worked for Amoco at the R&D facility before moving into marketing, and while in that role, Chevron bought our lubricants business right after I moved to Florida.

All in all, I have more than 34 years of experience in fuels and lubricants testing, development and tech service support.

I own three motorcycles that I either drive on the street or race. What I wanted to share with you today is my experience with my drag bike.

It is a Yamaha Roadstar Warrior. Originally built as a power cruiser, but now it is stretched, slammed and built to run on E-85 fuel and nitrous oxide. I have taken this bike from a fun street cruiser to a beast that wants to jump out from under me every time I snap the throttle.

The engine is putting out more than three times the horsepower it was originally built with, and with the highly oxygenated fuel, nitrous, and severe use, I have been battling cylinder and piston ring distress for a couple of years. Essentially, whenever I did a teardown, there was evidence of streaking of the Nikasil-lined aluminum cylinder, essentially a scuffing situation that is aggravated by the high cylinder pressures and fuel dilution.

Since Chevron does not make motorcycle oils, I have had to try many of the "other" different motor oils, all synthetic. To make a long story short, I should have read your white paper on motorcycle oil testing. It would have saved me at least three premature teardowns.

Bottom line - the AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle 20W-50 has completely solved my problems. I have been running it for over a year now, and compression and leakdown have stayed at the exact level as when the engine was freshly rebuilt. This weekend, I tore down the top end to try a new piston ring combination, and the cylinders had absolutely NO sign of streaking or other wear-related distress.

Also, all other clearances, including valve lash and valve guide and bearing have stayed the same. This is truly remarkable.

In my training endeavors, I run into a lot of end users who are high performance junkies just like me. I have no problem sharing my experience with the AMSOIL products.

Thank you so much for the great product.

Best Regards,

Sam Vallas

AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil for Harley-Davidson

A situation my daughter, Lyn, told me about recently got me to thinking about how good it is to be able to blend our own oils and have complete control of our own product quality.

Lyn loves to ride motorcycles. She recently purchased a Harley-Davidson bike and took it to the local Harley shop to have our new AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil installed. The mechanic took issue with her not using the oil Harley-Davidson sells, saying, "I'll use AMSOIL motor oil when AMSOIL starts making motorcycles!"

How would you answer a challenge like that? I was pleased to hear Lyn's response. She said, "I'll start using Harley-Davidson motor oil when Harley starts making oil!"

Perfect! The fact is that Harley-Davidson, like so many other "brands" of oil, contract with one or more oil companies to make their lubricants. Often, the decision as to who actually makes a private labeled product is based on low bid, and like almost everything manufactured by a low bidder, short cuts are taken in order to meet the low price.

I understand that Harley-Davidson has contracted with one company for a number of years to make their oil. That's good, but it doesn't change the fact that they make motorcycles, not oil. Now consider all the other private label oils out there. Every manufacturer that makes equipment with an engine has its own name on an oil bottle. That includes all the major auto manufacturers, the makers of motorcycles, ATV's, snowmobiles, lawnmowers, farm equipment, you name it, they all have oils. But none of these equipment manufacturers actually make an oil. They sell oil to make more money, and they often price these oils well above the going rate for competitive lubricants because, like Harley-Davidson, they can specify or create the impression that only their oil be used in their equipment.

Now there's nothing wrong in having a goal to make money, but let's get real here. Why would anyone want to use a product manufactured down to a price rather than a product manufactured up to high quality standards? We have tested a number of these private label motor oils and two-cycle oils and we found many are mediocre quality products. None of them even comes close to performing as well as AMSOIL lubricants, and that's a fact!

I'm not taking shots at Harley-Davidson. They make good motorcycles (although I liked my Goldwing better). And I understand their concern that normal automotive oils not meeting API C specs shouldn't be used in their bikes. But when they imply that AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil is not as good as their brand or I hear that one of their dealers recommended not using AMSOIL, I get a little hostile. Thise kinds of statements are the very reason we introduced our motorcycle oils in the first place. And when we say use our 20W-50 motorcycle oil in V-Twin motorcycle engines, that definately includes Harley-Davidson motorcycles!

Our Motorcycle Products Brochure, G-391, includes wear comparisons of AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils vs other oils, including H-D "Genuine." Both our oils demonstrate superior wear protection over all other tested brands. Interestingly enough, the highest wear scar in this test turned out to be Harley-Davidson's own "Genuine" oil!"

There is a good reason why AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils protect so well against wear. They are formulated with significantly higher levels of zinc and phosphorus, which when included in proper formulation with other high quality additives, provide superior wear protection at the high operating temperatures typical of motorcycles. In addition, synthetic oils inherently reduce sump temperatures so the engines actually run cooler.

The fact is, Harley would do well to have AMSOIL make their oils for them. Then they could be assured that their oil was indeed a superior product. As it is, there may be absolutely nothing wrong with their oil for use in average service, but I guarantee you that as the oil temperature gets hotter, like it does when sitting in traffic on asphalt on a hot summer day, the Harley-Davidson with AMSOIL in the crankcase is going to be far better protected and run far cooler than the bike with H-D "Genuine" oil in it. There's just no two ways about it!

So, my daughter Lyn will be going back to this mechanic armed with the facts about AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils and a few facts about H-D oil. Nobody's going to tell her that her dad's oils are not the very best. She knows better, and she's on a mission to prove her point. Who knows? Knowing Lyn, she might sign up another AMSOIL Dealer in the process!

Harley Becomes Smooth Ride With AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil

Terry Campbell of Lincoln, California, a long time Honda rider, bought his 2003 Harley-Davidson Dyna Superglide new. "The biggest thing I noticed was the big twin engines run hot," Campbell said. He initially ran Harley Syn3 in the crankcase, Redline Heavy Shock in his transmission and Redline 75W-140 in his primary. "Wee, the Redline didn't work any better than the Syn3, in fact, my transmission shifted worse. The Harley Syn3 ran too hot, and the Redline was sticky." Campbell said.

He now runs AMSOIL in the engine, transmission and primary. "So, I've been running AMSOIL in all three cavaties," Campbell said. "It has made quite a difference. My engine is running at least 30 degrees cooler, my transmission shifts much smoother and my primary chain is quieter." (read article)

AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil Drops Engine Temp for Harley V-Rod

Bon Hills, Tampa Bay, Florida, is completely satisfied with AMSOIL products. "Without a doubt, you have the greatest lubricants going," said Hills.

The 64-year-old has been riding motorcycles since he was a youngster on the family farm. Hills uses AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil in his 2003 Harley-Davidson V-Rod engine and transmission.

"I had an immediate nine degree drop in engine temperature at running temperature. Absolutely no valve chatter at any RPM, clutch reaction smoothed out considerably and the engine idle is now much less 'bumpy,'" said Hills.

Hills also uses AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil Filters and many other AMSOIL products in his personal vehicles and his boat.


Dear AMSOIL,

I wanted to let you know how happy I am with your AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil. I own a 2006 Harley-Davidson Sportster with 5,000 miles on it. Since the bike was new I've only used Harley-Davidson oil in the engine and Sportster gear lube in the transmission and primary chaincase.

After reading your "Study of Motorcycle Oils" I decided to switch to AMSOIL. That was the best thing I've ever done for my Harley-Davidson.

From day one I have had problems down-shifting, especially when the bike was cold. It would hang up between gears and I couldn't get it free before the light at the signal turned green. Very dangerous.

Harley-Davidson told me it was not broken in yet and to stop "granny shifting."

After 5,000 miles it was still doing it. Now, after I started using AMSOIL in my engine and transmission, the problem has ceased completely from the minute I put it in. No matter how easy I down-shift I can't make it hang up between gears.

Thank you so much for your incredible oil. I'll never use any other brand again.

Honda Gold Wing Has 191,000 AMSOIL Miles on Engine

MSF Motorcycle Safety Chief Instructor Michael R. Douglas, of Anaheim CA, wrote, "I currently own a 1989 Honda GL1500 Gold Wing motorcycle. My Gold Wing has 267,025 miles on it. For the past 191,000 miles I have been using AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motor Oil. I have been changing the oil and filter at intervals of approximately 10,000 miles."

"Recently, I decided to pull the motorcycle apart and have it painted and chromed. After pulling the valve covers off, I was extremely surprised to see how clean the valve train was. The green paint sprayed on by Honda over 10 years ago is still visible. In the rear of the engine by the clutch, is a small piece of plastic 90-degree tube, which allows oil to return to the front half of the engine. With this many miles, this tube is usually either partially or completely plugged with clutch debris and other deposits. If this happens, the front end is starved for oil. The tube in my engine was spotless!"

"I also use AMSOIL synthetic gear lube in the final drive assembly. Keep up the great work! Outstanding products!"


Gold Wing Owner Enjoys Increased MPG

Ralph Sites, a police officer in Rutsburg, Virginia, said he put AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil in his 2002 GL 1800 Honda Gold Wing when it had 4,550 miles on the engine.

"I had been getting 30 miles per gallon," Sites said. "I was supposed to be getting 40 to 45 miles per gallon."

His first oil change to AMSOIL improved his gas mileage to 38 miles to the gallon, he said. At 6,500 miles on the engine, he was getting 40 miles per gallon. He replaced the final drive oil with AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube.

"I switched to AMSOIL for the long-term gain. The improved gas mileage was just a bonus. AMSOIL is cheaper than Honda's synthetic and I don't have to change it as often. It's a win-win situation."

He bought the bike new in January 2002, and after putting 12,000 miles on it he estimated he'd saved more than $100 in a matter of a few months because of the increased mileage he got after switching to AMSOIL.


AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil Makes Honda Goldwing Purr

Ken Burkhalter trusts the quality and performance of AMSOIL motor oils, lubes and filters, but he has been newly impressed with AMSOIL products in his 1999 Honda Goldwing GL1500SE. He purchased it with 15,000 miles on the engine. He put 5,000 miles on the oil and fluids installed by the dealer he bought the bike from and then installed AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil. "Upon riding the bike after the change I was blown away," Burkhalter said. "Words alone cannot describe the remarkable performance change."

He reports the engine starts easier and quieter and idles significantly faster.

"I'll have to adjust the idle speed back down," he said. "It runs like everything is made from silk. The engine is so quiet you can barely hear it at 70 mph, and the smooth sound it makes is so stunning, I have been driving with my radio off just to enjoy the engine purr."

Besides the purring of the engine, Burkhalter experienced an immediate improvement in shifting ease on the Goldwing. "I thought it might be my over-fertile imagination, but looking at the shop manual closer I find that the transmission runs in the engine oil (not seperate) so the extreme smoothness. ease of shifting and lack of gear gnashing can only be attributable to the use of the AMSOIL motorcycle oil.

AMSOIL Keeps Honda CR85 on the Track

Motocross racer Chris Price of Yadkinville, North Carolina, competes on a 2005 Honda CR85 at a couple of local tracks. One day at the track. Mike Price (chris's dad) installed a new clutch on his bike before racing began.

"I forgot to check the clutch for play because the plates will swell when they are new," said Mike. He said he could hear the engine screaming as soon as the 11-year-old racer left the gates. The motor nearly quit altogether and Price fell to last place, but he didn't stop riding.

"I finished the whole seven laps and took second place, the clutches held together but were slipping the whole time" said Price.

After getting the bike back to the trailer the Prices changed the oil and checked the clutches.

"Everything looked great. My dad said if it wasn't for AMSOIL 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil in the transmission, the clutches would have burned out after two laps," said Price.

Price uses AMSOIL Dominator in the engine and an AMSOIL Power Sports Air Filter along with the AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil in the transmission.

"The oil never broke down in the severe heat that built up in the clutches, and AMSOIL Dominator is the best that has ever been made," said Mike "Customer for life."

WHY AMSOIL?

A Commitment to Excellence
As a jet fighter squadron commander Lieutenant Colonel Albert J. Amatuzio had ample opportunity to witness synthetic lubricants in action. These oils are used exclusively in jet engines because of three extraordinary performance characteristics: an ability to reduce friction and wear on engine components, an ability to function dependably at severe temperature extremes and an ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemical breakdown.

Recognizing that these same benefits would prove invaluable in combustion engines, Amatuzio began conducting serious research in 1963. By 1966 he had formulated a synthetic motor oil and put it to use in vehicles in northern Minnesota. Throughout the late '60s Amatuzio continued his research and development and sold commercially available synthetic oils under a variety of names. In 1970 he incorporated his own name into a commercially sold product called AMMOIL. In 1971 this product name was changed to AMZOIL and it continued to be sold commercially. The true milestone came in 1972 when AMZOIL became the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute criteria. The new lubricant performed like no other before it. When the first can appeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of an entire industry. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have expanded the boundaries of lubrication science and redefined the performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines. (read story)

AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATL) is engineered to exceed the requirements of GM, Ford and Toyota where low viscosity oil is required. The highly specialized properties of this fuel efficient fluid provide outstanding performance without compromising protection, even in severe operating conditions.

Most drivers are unaware that transmissions commonly operate under severe service and require shorter fluid drain intervals. AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient ATF is a long life fluid capable of extended service intervals. It provides an extra margin of protection, especially when fluid change intervals are missed or during heavy use; even during abuse. Drivers can count on AMSOIL Synthetic Fuel Efficient ATF to provide protection beyond conventional fluids. (read article)


Improve Fuel Efficiency With AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants

Short supplies and ever-increasing demand have pushed crude oil barrel proces to record highs over the summer, and motorists have been directly affected. Gasoline is one of the primary products produced from crude oil, and pump prices are directly affected by the prices refiners pay for crude oil. In fact, the average price per gallon of gasoline reached levels over 50 cents higher than last summer, causing motorists to alter their driving habits and look for every and any way to get the most for their fuel dollar.

According to the U.S.Energy Information Administration (EIA). the price of crude oil represented an average of 42.6 percent of retail gasoline prices between 2000 and 2003, with refinery processing cost, marketing and distribution costs and gasoline station costs and taxes comprising the balance. It is the volatile of crude oil prices that is most responsible for fluctuating gasoline prices. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils have been shown to yield significant increases in fuel economy over conventional motor oils. Petroleum based lubricants are composed of irregular molecules of various sizes that create excess friction, in addition to the friction generated by moving parts. The vehicle's engine must burn extra fuel to overcome this friction, decreasing fuel economy. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants, on the other hand, contain only smooth, uniform molecules that effectively reduce friction and improve fuel efficiency.

Conventional lubricants are also very suseptible to volatility. When the oil's lighter molecules volatize during hot operating conditions, viscosity increases and the oil becomes more difficult to pump, consuming more energy and reducing fuel economy. Because AMSOIL synthetic lubricants contain uniformly sized molecules, they resist volatization, maintain their viscosity and allow more fuel to be used for vehicle propulsion, improvong fuel economy.

The use of AMSOIL synthetic motor oils, gear lubes and drivetrain fluids can have a profound impact on fuel economy. Industry tests demonstrate that an average passenger car can conservatively decrease its fuel consumption by two to five percent by switching to synthetic lubricants, while independent testing shows that trucks can decrease fuel consumption by 8.2 percent. Many AMSOIL customers report even larger gains in fuel economy.

According to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, total U.S. fuel consumption was 162.3 billion gallons in the year 2000. Consider the savings if every American vehicle converted to AMSOIL synthetic lubricants and gained a five percent increase in fuel economy. It would equate to a savings of 8.115 billion gallons of fuel each year, at a pice savings of $24.35 billion (at $2 a gallon).

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the average passenger vehicle burned 587 gallons of gasoline in 2002. At a price of $3 a gallon, the average vehicle owner spends $1,761 on gaoline each year. With a five precent fuel economy improvement afforded with AMSOIL synthetic lubricants, the motorist saves $88.05 a year in fuel expenses. That's enough to cover the price of a year's supply of AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil and Ea Oil Filters, with money left over.

In addition to fuel savings, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants also allow motorists to reduce oil usage through extended drain intervals, while significantly reducing friction and wear, improving engine performance and extending equipment life.


Is Your Synthetic Motor Oil Really Synthetic?

Recently, Castrol and Mobil brought the debate over what is "synthetic" into view, as Mobil challenged Castrol's replacement of polyalphaolephins (PAOs) with hydroisomerized waxes (hydrocracked petroleum basestocks) in their synthetic formulations. Exactly one year after the National Advertising Division of the Council of Better Business Bureaus' ruling upholding Castrol's position that wax isomerates could be called synthetic, Petro-Canada (a large provider of basestocks to oil marketers) advertised it would be referring to its very high viscosity index (VHVI) basestocks as a synthetic in the North American market. These products fall into the same API group (Group III) as wax isomerates, but could vary significantly in quality from wax isomerates. This market roar by Petro-Canada has carried a quiet undertone of moves from PAO to VHVI technology by several engine oil marketers. (read entire article here)


The Myth of the 3,000 Mile Oil Change Interval

AMSOIL represented the lone voice for extended drain intervals in America for over 30 years, recommending 25,000-mile/one-year drain intervals. While extended oil drain intervals have been common in Europe for years, other American motor oil companies have mostly avoided recommending them, preferring instead to stick with 3,000-mile recommended intervals despite the contrasting recommendations of vehicle manufacturers and European motor oil companies.

In fact, Marc Graham, president of Pennzoil-Quaker State-owned Jiffy Lube International, was quoted in a 2001 Lubricants World interview as saying, "At [Pennzoil-Quaker State] we use a number internally that if we [shorten the drain interval] by 100 miles [for each car serviced], it would mean an additional $20 million in revenue for the company." He also explained that "if we could move our customers to get one more oil change per year, it's worth $294 million for the oil change alone and $441 million in revenue, when you include the ancillary products and services customers typically buy along with the oil change."

Today, with vehicle manufacturers recommending longer and longer drain intervals and the increasing use of oil monitoring systems, the practice of extending drain intervals has become more mainstream and forced more motor oil companies to take notice. (read entire article here)


AMSOIL Synthetic 15W-40 Diesel Oil Field Study - Nordic Waste Refuse Hauler

Fleet owner switches from Shell Rotella T 15W-40 Diesel Oil to AMSOIL Synthetic 15W-40 Diesel Oil after seeing increased performance, protection and cost savings

In order to test the performance capabilities of AMSOIL Synthetic 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil (AME), AMSOIL sought a partner with a fleet that operated in truly severe conditions. The perfect match was found in Duluth, Minnesota based Nordic Waste. Nordic Waste operates a fleet of 10 International refuse haulers, providing trash and recycling pickup to residential and commercial customers in the greater Duluth/Superior, Wisconsin region. Nordic's trucks operate in the bitter cold of sub-zero winters as well as on humid summer days that can top out at over 90 degrees F. In addition, Lake Superior's influence on the areas weather patterns can create extreme temperature swings just miles from the lake, something Nordic's trucks encounter regularly. The company's fleet runs 12 hours a day with frequent stops and redlined starts, all while hauling up to 22,000 lbs. of refuse and navigating the seriously steep hills of Duluth. Nordic Waste was initially installing Shell Rotella T 15W-40 before switching to AMSOIL. (read more)

AMSOIL Products Improve Efficiency and Reduce Operating Costs for Gerlach Trucking

AMSOIL INC., in conjunction with Gerlach Trucking of Erskine, Minnesota, conducted a field demonstration of its Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil, Super Duty Oil Filters and Dual-Gard filtration system equipped with BE-110 by-pass filtration elements.

The test vehicle was a 1995 Freightliner FLD-120 powered by a Detroit 60 Series diesel engine and utilized mainly in long-haul transports. The testing covered a two-year period and the vehicle accumulated 212,326 total miles.

The goals for this demonstration included showing that the use of AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil, in conjunction with the AMSOIL Dual-Gard filtration setup and SDF Oil Filters, would result in improved efficiency, reduced operating costs and environmental benefits when compared to conventional petroleum lubricants and filtration methods. As mentioned, the evaluation was conducted using a 1995 Freightliner FD-120 equipped with a Detroit 60 Series diesel engine. The AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil was sampled at the manufacturer's suggested oil drain intervals and monitored through the use of oil analysis to ensure its continued serviceability. The full-flow filtration units were also monitored and replaced at 12,000- to 15,000-mile intervals, while the By-Pass units were monitored and replaced at 24,000- to 30,000-mile intervals.

AMSOIL Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is Correct Choice For Jeff Foster Trucking

With the help of Jeff Foster Trucking Inc. of Superior, WI, AMSOIL put its Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (HDD), as well as its Dual-Gard filtration system, to the test.

Ten 1996 Kenworth Class 8 tractors used as interstate freight hauling vehicles and equipped with Cummins N-14 ESP3 diesel engines participated in the demonstration. Five trucks equipped with AMSOIL Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil, AMSOIL BMK-12 Filter mounts and BE-110 By-Pass filtration elements utilized 120,000-mile oil drain intervals,20,000-mile full- flow oil filter change intervals and 40,000-mile By-Pass filter change intervals, while the other five trucks continued using petroleum motor oil, utilizing 20,000-mile oil and filter drain intervals.

The objective of the field demonstration was to prove that using AMSOIL Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil, together with the AMSOIL Dual-Gard filtration system, would result in a reduction in operating expenses when compared to the use of conventional petroleum lubricants and filtration methods. Verification will be demonstrated through increased fuel economy, extended drain intervals, reduced oil consumption and reduced maintenance. (read more)


Diesel Oils Evolve With Diesel Engine Designs

The latest round of emission standards went into effect in 2007, requiring even more stringent NOx and particulate emissions reductions. While low levels of EGR technology (10-15 percent) were successfully applied in diesel engines to meet 2002 NOx emissions standards, most manufacturers incorporated increased EGR rates of 25-35 percent in order to meet 2007 standards. Increased EGR rates mean 2007 and newer diesel engines run hotter than their predecessors, requiring diesel oils meeting the latest API CJ-4 specification to be formulated with improved oxidation resistance properties to prevent thermal runaway and maintain engine protection.

Decreasing the level of sulfur in diesel fuel has been determined to be the most cost effective way to decrease particulate emissions. The introduction of ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel in June 2006 dropped diesel sulfur levels from 500 ppm to 15 ppm in order to meet 2007 particulate limits, provide compatibility with NOx after treatment systems and enable high EGR rates.

In addition, in order to further reduce particulate emissions, diesel particulate filters (DPF's) were incorporated into all 2007 and newer American diesel engines, and CJ-4 diesel oils are faced with the challenge of balancing engine protection with DPF life. Increased EGR. although effectively decreasing NOx emissions, results in less efficient combustion and increased levels of soot, and some of it finds its way into the engine oil. (read more)


AMSOIL Boosts CJ-4 Diesel Oil Offering

Upgraded formulation, new viscosity and longer drain intervals provide excellent value

AMSOIL has reformulated its Premium API CJ-4 Synthetic 5W-40 Diesel Oil (DEO). In addition, AMSOIL now offers a new 15W-40 Premium API CJ-4 Synthetic Diesel Oil (DME). These exceptional diesel oils provide a level of protection afforded only by a truly high quality synthetic oil - and do so over drain intervals of 3X (3 times) OEM recommended drain intervals. They are the premium choice for API CJ-4 emission-compliant diesel oil required by model-year 2007 and newer diesel engines. Formulated for vehicles fitted with exhaust treatment devices, DEO and DME are also backwards compatible, offering maximum protection to all diesel applications. (read more)


Superior Filtration Plays Important Role in Engine Protection

A great deal of emphasis is placed on the importance of using the most advanced high-quality lubricants, but superior filtration is often taken for granted. The general attitude displayed by many consumers is to use whatever is cheapest, even when they've invested is superior lubrication. While AMSOIL synthetic motor oils provide unbeatable protection, performance and economy, they require the assistance of filtration. Without filtration, by-products from the combustion process and abrasive materials ingested from the air will ultimately destroy an engine. (read more)

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lube Outperforms Valvoline Gear Lube

AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear LubeHigh quality gear oils must lubricate, cool and protect geared systems. They must also carry damaging wear debris away from contact zones and muffle the sound of gear operation. Commonly used in differential gears and standard transmission applications in commercial and passenger vehicles, as well as a variety of industrial machinery, gear oils must offer extreme temperature and pressure protection in order to prevent wear, pitting, spalling, scoring, scuffing and other types of damage that result in equipment failure and downtime. Protection against oxidation, thermal degradation, rust, copper corrosion and foaming is also important.

AMSOIL submitted its 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube (AGR) and Valvoline 75W-90 Gear Lube to an independent laboratory for quality comparison tests. The gear lubes were tested according to ASTM testing procedures in several critical performance areas, including oxidation resistance, viscosity retention and cold temperature fluidity. Oxidation resistance was measured using the L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test, viscosity retention was measured using the KRL Shear Stability Test and cold temperature fluidity was measured using the Brookfield Viscosity Test. Additional load carrying, wear, extreme pressure and scoring protection tests were performed exclusively on AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube using the L-37 High Torque Axle Test and the L-42 High Speed Axle Test.

Why Motor Oil Deteriorates

It is common knowledge that, at some point, engine oil must be changed. It's something that is preached relentlessly to vehicle owners by vehicle manufacturers, quick lubes and oil companies. But consumers are widely unaware of what exactly makes oil changes necessary.

Many factors contribute to a motor oil's demise, but it is essentially the accumulation of contaminants in the oil and chemical changes in the oil itself that make a motor unfit for further service. With time, it is inevitable that the oil will be contaminated by dirt or sludge, or succumb to the extreme pressures or temperatures found inside an engine. AMSOIL Motor Oils are formulated with the industry's most advanced synthetic base stocks and additive packages to combat the forces that deteriorate conventional oils. (read more)


What is the NOACK Volatility Test?
Volatization is a term used to describe what happens to a fluid as it is heated to the point it begins to "boil off." Upon reaching a certain temperature, oil will begin to lose some of its lighter weight molecules as they "boil off" and leave heavier weight molecules behind. Not only does this cause higher oil consumption, this process can also cause increased viscosity making the oil more difficult to circulate through the lubrication system. (read more)


Quality Takes Priority at AMSOIL
