AMSOIL Products Formulated for
Maximum Performance in Alternative Fuel Vehicles
The price of gasoline
has been a hot topic for some time now. Consumers are making
changes to adjust to high fuel prices, including using public
transporation, moving to shorten the daily commute and the
use of alternative fuel vehicles. Diesels, hybrids and flex
fuel vehicles are rapidly becoming commonplace on today's
highways. All off these alternatives to gasoline powered rides
have obvious advantages and some disadvantages.
Hybrid cars have
an electric motor along with a traditional gas engine. They
save fuel by engaging the electric motor at certain times
and only running on gas when necessary. Hybrids use considerably
less fuel, but sticker prices average about $3,000 more than
gas only vehicles, cutting into the savings.
Diesels are also
gaining steam in the American market. According to R.L. Polk,
registration of diesel powered passenger vehicles has gone
up 80 percent since 2000. While diesel fuel can cost more
at the pump, it gets 20 to 40 percent better fuel efficiency
than gasoline. Boidiesel offers an even less costly alternative,
but also provides another set of issues such as availability
and engine compatibility. There aren't many diesel powered
cars on the American market right now, making options limited
for consumers opting for the diesel alternative.
Flexible fuel vehicles
(FFV) have the ability to run on E85 or regular gasoline.
E85 is a blend of 85 percent corn based ethanol and 15 percent
gasoline. According to USAToday, there are already
about five million flex fuel vehicles on the road today, and
automakers and corn farmers alike are pushing the use of FFVs
as an alternative to gas powered vehicles. Some of the problems
facing E85 users include that ethanol is less efficient than
gas and there are only about 600 stations with E85 nationwide,
most of which are in the Midwest.
No matter which
type of vehicle is chosen, AMSOIL has compatible products
that provide the finest protection possible. AMSOIL diesel
oils are biodiesel compatible, and AMSOIL fuel additives are
specially formulated to improve the performance of today's
modern eco friendly fuels. AMSOIL motor oils aid in protecting
the environment and consumer pocketbooks by promoting extended
drain intervals and products that improve vehicle performance
Motor oils must
do much more than prevent engine wear.
They must also:
- Permit easy
- Reduce friction
- Protect against
rust and corrosion
- Keep engine
- Minimize combustion
- Cool engine
- Seal combustion
- Aid fuel economy
While these seem
like simple tasks, evolving engine designs and more demanding
driving habits have made them increasingly difficult to perform.
Unlike conventional petroleum motor oils, synthetic lubricants
are made from pure, uniform molecules. This uniformity makes
synthetic lubricants designable, allowing lubricant manufacturers
to formulate synthetic oils to address the evolving demands
of modern engines.
lubricants provide maximum performance, easily meeting the
demands placed on a motor oil. When it comes to designability,
no company has more experience formulating synthetic motor
oils than AMSOIL.
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.
Quality Takes Priority at AMSOIL
The AMSOIL chemical
laboratory plays an important role in the daily operations
at AMSOIL headquarters. The lab fulfills tech service requests,
performs competitor testing and comparisons, and works on
the research and development of products at AMSOIL. One of
the most important jobs at the lab is quality control. AMSOIL
is known for formulating high-quality products and the AMSOIL
chemists ensure that everything coming in and going out meets
AMSOIL standards. How do they do it? (read
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
