Which AMSOIL Products Are Recommended
For Your Vehicles?
Does Your Motor Oil Do This?
Permit Easy Starting?
Motor oil must provide easy cold weather
start-up. Petroleum oils are refined oils that contain wax,
thickening in cold temperatures and causing the oil to lose
fluidity and create drag on the engine upon start-up. Enough
drag inhibits the engine from reaching the critical cranking
speed required for the engine to start.
Synthetic Motor Oils contain no waxes, naturally maintaining
their fluidity in extremely low temperatures. AMSOIL Synthetic
Motor Oils flow quickly and reliably to allow easy starting
and immediate lubricating protection.
Lubricate and Prevent Wear?
Motor oil must prevent the metal-to-metal
contact within an engine that causes wear, scoring or seizure
of engine parts. Oil films on critical engine parts must be
constantly replenished through adequate lubricant flow and
Synthetic Motor Oils cling tenaciously to engine parts,
providing superior protection against wear even when faced
with high temperatures and intense shearing forces that cause
conventional oils to vaporize, shear back and lose their lubricating
Protect Against Rust?
Motor oil must neutralize the effects
of water and other combustion by-products that form rust.
Rust-inhibition is an especially important feature for stored
engines and engines subject to frequent short trip operations.
Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with special rust-inhibiting
additives, preventing the rusting of engine parts.
Motor oil must maintain an oil film
that keeps the surfaces of moving engine parts separated,
minimizing friction that produces excess heat and inhibits
Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated to keep friction to
an absolute minimum, providing outstanding film strength that
prevents metal-to-metal contact and minimizing internal fluid
friction to provide maximum fuel efficiency.
Keep Engine Parts Clean?
Motor oil must keep engines clean with
adequate detergent/dispersant additives that prevent the build-up
of sludge and varnish deposits which lead to oil flow restriction,
increased wear, loss of power and increased oil consumption.
Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with top-quality detergent/dispersant
additives designed for long-term performance, effectively
keeping engines clean and deposit-free while maintaining the
superior protection properties of the oil.
Motor oil must protect engines from
the damaging effects of corrosion formed through the combination
of water, unburned fuel, combustion by-products, acids and
Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with corrosion inhibitors
and high total base numbers (TBN), providing outstanding protection
against the damaging effects of corrosion.
Cool Engine Parts?
Motor oil must cool several critical
engine components, including the crankshaft, rod bearings,
camshaft and its bearings, timing gears, pistons and turbocharger.
These parts rely on supplies of cool oil in order to pick
up and carry heat to the crankcase, where it is transferred
to the surrounding air. If parts are allowed to overheat,
engine failure soon follows.
Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with superior synthetic
base stocks, exhibiting exceptional heat transfer properties
and lubricity the effectively cool critical engine parts and
reduce engine operating temperatures.
Minimize Combustion Chamber
Motor oil must burn cleanly and hold
combustion chamber deposits to an absolute minimum. Excessive
deposits cause spark plugs to short out and combustion problems
such as pinging and knock. Deposits also act as heat barriers,
causing damage to engine components.
Synthetic Motor Oils run naturally cleaner than conventional
oils. Formulated with superior detergent/dispersant additive
packages, AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils provide outstanding
deposit control for extended drain intervals.
Seal Combustion Pressures?
Motor oil must "fill in"
the microscopic hills and valleys present on the surfaces
of piston rings, ring grooves and cylinder walls, sealing
the combustion chamber and preventing high combustion and
compression pressures from escaping into the crankcase and
reducing engine power and efficiency.
Synthetic Motor Oils maintain highly protective lubricant
films on rings and cylinder walls, keeping engine power and
efficiency at their peak, while also effectively protecting
Motor oil must contain effective antifoam
additives in order to preserve the lubricant's protective
qualities. Moving engine parts cause air in the crankcase
to be constantly whipped into the oil, causing foam that compromises
proper heat conduction and wear protection.
Synthetic Motor Oils contain high quality antifoam additives
and resist foaming in service, allowing the superior wear
protection and heat transfer properties of AMSOIL Synthetic
Motor Oils to be maintained for extended drain intervals.
Enhance Fuel Economy?
Motor oil must reduce friction within
the engine, which in turn reduces energy loss to "drag"
and allows more energy to reach the drivetrain. The more friction
is reduced, the more fuel is saved. The use of lower viscosity
lubricants reduces friction and improves fuel economy,
Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated to provide maximum
fuel efficiency. The smooth, uniform molecules produce minimal
internal friction, allowing maximum energy to each the drivetrain.
Independent tests show fuel savings of five to eight percent
when using AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils.

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
What is the NOACK Volatility
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.

Synthetic Motor Oils offer the longest drain intervals
on the market, unsurpassed protection and performance that
effectively extends equipment life and improved fuel economy,
saving customers money at the pump and reducing the nation's
dependence on foreign oil.
INC. warrants that the use of its lubricants will not cause
mechanical damage to any mechanically sound equipment when
AMSOIL INC. products are used in full compliance with the
company's recommendations and instructions."
synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
