AMSOIL formulates a
wide selection of synthetic lubricating oils for all types
of engine and gear applications, including those for specialized
vehicles and severe operating conditions. In addition, AMSOIL
has developed sophisticated fuel additives, filtration systems
and other companion products that supplement and extend
Because synthetic lubricants are superior
to conventional petroleum lubricants. Petroleum lubricants
are refined from crude oil, a natural substance pumped from
the earth and containing diverse chemicals. Some of the
chemicals in petroleum oil are detrimental to the lubrication
process and to the lubricated components. For example, some
petroleum oil chemicals invite oxidation in high temperature
operations. Oxidation quickly destroys lubricant integrity.
Synthetic lubes, on the other hand, are
not refined from crude oil, but constructed from pure chemicals
selected for their ability to lubricate. The purity of synthetic
lubricant basestocks significantly reduces lubricant oxidation,
which promotes the ability of synthetics to be used in higher
tempresature applications than conventional lubes may be
and promotes their ability to be used for extended drain
intervals. In fact, AMSOIL
synthetic lubricants are specifically formulated for extended
molecular uniformity of carefully selected synthetic lubes
promotes superior lubrication and friction reduction, which
in turn promotes superior heat control, wear control and
energy efficiency. Molecular uniformity also helps synthetics
maintain their protective viscosity in high temperature
operations, which also promotes superior wear control.

The true savings associated with using AMSOIL synthetic
lubricants are the longevity and efficiency of your vehicle
or machinery. But there are also direct savings associated
with the frequency of oil changes. Bellow is a price breakdown
of your costs associated with recommended oil changes using
AMSOIL synthetic oil and conventional petroleum oils.
Conventional motor oil
companies recommend 3,000-mile drain intervals

associated with the oil change itself, or the time you spend
either changing your oil, or taking your vehicle to your
local service center.
AMSOIL will actually save you money on your out of pocket
oil change expenses, while providing you the finest protection
for your vehicle or machinery. The true value is the decrease
in maintenance costs, improvements in gas mileage, and improved
longevity of your investment.
just bought a new car, and I'd like to try AMSOIL. Could using
AMSOIL void my new car warranty?
Users of AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil need not fear altering
their warranty coverage. The contention that using an aftermarket
product like AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil could void new car
warranty protection is simply not true.
Major auto manufacturers and regulatory agencies have determined
that warranties must cover all equipment failures they would
normally cover that are not caused by the aftermarket product.
Consequently, and AMSOIL user's new car warranty still covers
all failures resulting from defective original equipment
or faulty workmanship or faulty workmanship by the manufacturer.
The second element of your protection is the AMSOIL Limited
Warranty (use AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil as recommended
in mechanically sound equipment, and the warranty covers
lubricant-related failures). Since AMSOIL motor oils have
never once been deemed the cause of an engine's failure,
however, this is merely added protection.
was always told to change my oil every 3,000 miles if I
wanted to keep my car running well. How is it possible to
drive 25,000 miles without an oil change using AMSOIL, and
will extending my oil change interval void my warranty?
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil is guaranteed to run for 25,000
miles or one year in a mechanically sound engine, providing,
of course, the oil is kept free contaminants by changing
the oil filter according to the manufacturer's recommendation
or, when using an AMSOIL Oil Filter, changing the filter
at six month or 12,500 miles, whichever comes first. AMSOIL
coined the phrase "extended drain interval" and
it's been validated by over 20 years of industry testing
and by tens of thousands of motorists and millions of over-the-road
miles. Based on their results, 25,000 miles is a conservative
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil performs so well for so long
because it doesn't break down in intense heat like conventional
petroleum oils do. It doesn't form performance-robbing deposits
and it doesn't volatize, which can adversely affect lubricant
performance by altering viscosity and increasing oil consumption.
Finally, AMSOIL's additive package, a key element in a lubricant's
ability to function, holds up under engine stresses, remaining
serviceable for the full 25,000 miles.
Note also that extending drain intervals, like using AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil in general, does not affect new car
warranties. In fact, according to a General Motors representative,
"Warranty applicability is contingent upon the cause
of failure and generally covers defects in material and
workmanship only." In other words, the only situation
in which warranty coverage would change is the case of lubricant-related
failure (in which case the AMSOIL Limited Warranty protects
Question: AMSOIL costs
more than my regular oil does. How can I justify paying
this higher cost?
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil is more expensive off the shelf
than most petroleum oils. But comparing AMSOIL and other
motor oils is like comparing apples and oranges: AMSOIL's
performance so far exceeds that of conventional motor oil,
it's really a different class of product. AMSOIL is a premium
product that rightfully commands a premium price.
Like anything of real value, however, the true consumer
cost doesn't end with the off-the-shelf price. AMSOIL Motor
Oil is extremely cost effective compared to conventional
3,000-mile drain interval oils in savings realized in fuel
economy, reduced repairs, fewer oil changes, reduced downtime,
reduced maintenance and extended engine life.
bought a new car a year ago, and I've been running petroleum
motor oil in it ever since. Could switching to AMSOIL now
cause mechanical problems?
Switching from petroleum motor oil to AMSOIL (or even mixing
the two, if the need arises) is perfectly safe. AMSOIL is
100 percent compatible with petroleum oils. Mixing AMSOIL
and petroleum is not recommended (having petroleum motor
oil mixed in detracts from the superior performance of AMSOIL),
but there is no danger in doing so. Those who have been
using petroleum motor oil in their mechanically sound vehicles
can switch to AMSOIL safely. Petroleum motor oil and AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil are only incomparable in the way they
perform, not incompatible.
been using a petroleum motor oil since I started driving
- that was a long time ago. Why should I switch to AMSOIL
when I haven't had any problems with what I'm using?
Chances are, you're not driving the same car you were when
you started driving. Automotive technology has changed a
great deal, even in just the past few years. Today's cars
have more power, use less gas and have smaller engines than
ever before. High performance mixed with small engines means
high stresses and increased demands on motor oil.
How expanding technology and modern engine needs affect
motor oil is a primary concern of AMSOIL engineers. High-tech
engines need high-tech oils like AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil- designed, not refined. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil's
basestock is composed of uniform molecules chosen for their
lubricating characteristics. Petroleum oils are a hodge-podge
of molecules; some lubricate, others detract from the ability
to lubricate. The bottom line? AMSOIL's engineers can design
their motor oil to meet the needs of you and your vehicle,
petroleum refiners can't.
Using an oil designed for today's needs can make a world
of difference for you and your automobile by oil changes,
easier starts in cold weather, better gas mileage and longer
engine life. You can also expect better engine performance.
These factors and the overall savings realized by using
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil make switching to AMSOIL the
smart and easy choice!
