Amsoil has a long history of being used in high performance environments, the first applications of Amsoil Synthetic oil were used exclusively in jet engines because of three main performance characteristics:
- an ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemical breakdown
- an ability to reduce friction and wear on engine components
- an ability to function dependably at severe temperature extremes
Realizing that these same would prove of value in a combustion engine a formula was derived in 1966. By 1972 just six years after is debut in automobiles Amsoil became the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute criteria. This was truly a milestone in automotive history.
Amsoil is formulated to have fewer drain intervals which means fewer oil changes and in turn save money. Even if you drive only 12,000 miles per year the cost for Amsoil Synthetic Motor Oil is still less than the price you pay for petroleum. And you still get better wear protection, lower engine temperatures, improved fuel efficiency and easier cold-weather starts. Studies show that even at -60 degree Amsoil is still a vicous liquid, this translates to less time that the car has to warm up in inclement weather.
With most of the world going “green” it’s hard for the automotive industry to stay on the cutting edge of technology. Enter Amsoil Synthetic. Since it’s introduction as the worlds first synthetic motor oil it has set the standard to quality among motor lubricants. Amsoil has always strived to cut back on the ‘carbon footprint’ that’s why it was the first to implement 25,000-mile/one-year drain intervals. By extending drain intervals, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants dramatically cut the amount of oil consumed and emissions produced.
The advanced lubricity (slipperiness) of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants has also been proven to increase fuel economy. This reduces dependency on foreign oil and overall fuel consumption. The resulting improvement in fuel efficiency and reduction of emission levels contribute to the conservations of natural resources and protection of the atmosphere.
