Why Are Synthetics Better?
Synthetic lubricants are chemically engineered from pure chemicals rather than refined from crude oil. That gives them significant advantages over refined oils. Conventional oils - the oils most people are familiar with - are refined from crude oil. Refining is a process of physically separating light oil components from heavy ones. Synthetic lubricants are pure, their molecular structure is uniform, and they are designed to work in applications in which refined oils cannot. There ability in reducing friction, heat and wear for maximum power, performance and fuel efficiency, and resistant to high temperature burn-off, chemical breakdown and sludging makes them superior to all petroleum oil keeping engines cleaner. What
difference between synthetic and conventional oil?
Better Fuel Economy|
Fuel economy is becoming more important with each passing year. Gas and
diesel prices keep rising, putting a major strain on businesses that
rely on vehicles and heavy equipment in their daily operations. AMSOIL
synthetic lubricants improve fuel economy by allowing moving parts to
move more freely, using less energy and creating less friction than when
conventional lubricants are used. Industry tests demonstrate an average
conservative decrease in fuel consumption by two to five percent by
switching to synthetic lubricants. Many AMSOIL customers report even
larger gains in fuel economy.
Extends the Vehicle Life
AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are specially designed to protect engine
components, extending the life of the engine and reducing the need
for replacing engine parts. They are also thermally stable
with a strong resistance to high temperature volatility (burn-off),
preventing sludge deposits and keeping engines clean.
The Right Choice for the Environment
It is estimated that over 240 million gallons of oil are improperly
discarded annually. Dumping 240 million gallons of oil is nearly the
same as two Exxon Valdez spills each month. Just one quart of used
oil can produce a two-acre oil slick. One gallon of oil can make one
million gallons of water too foul to drink and 35 ppm of oil will
doesn't have to cost you a lot of money. In fact it will
save you money and prolong the life of your vehicle. If the 243
million cars (excluding trucks, buses and taxis) in the United
States were equipped with AMSOIL motor oil, only 3.5 billion to
16.2 billion quarts of oil would be consumed instead of 20.2
billion to 40.5 billion quarts, assuming an average service-life
of 100,000 miles. Find out more about

Why Use AMSOIL?
AMSOIL has been the leader in synthetic lubrication for automotive service since 1972, hence its name "The
First In Synthetics®" Compared to conventional petroleum based lubricants, AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils yield significant increases in fuel economy. Know the Facts, AMSOIL Saves You Money! AMSOIL extended drain intervals mean fewer oil changes, long term savings and convenience.
Because AMSOIL oil is the best! Extensive testing against 10 competing conventional, synthetic and synthetic blend motor oils proves AMSOIL oil outperforms all competitors and provides consumers with the following benefits:
Testing details AMSOIL Synthetics provides low temperature fluidity for fast, dependable winter starts and cold start protection. They exceed the most demanding world-wide performance standards and meet or exceed all warranty requirements for all domestic and imported vehicles, both turbo-charged and & non-turbo-charged.

The use of AMSOIL
synthetic motor oil, gear lubes and transmission fluids can have a profound
impact on fuel economy. Industry tests demonstrate an average conservative
decrease in fuel consumption by two to five percent by switching to
synthetic lubricants. Many AMSOIL customers report even larger gains in fuel
It does little good worrying about whether
fuel prices will go up or down. Very few people have control over the
price of fuel at the pump. What you should focus on, then, are things
you can control. Foremost among these are the lubricants you use in your
engine and drivetrain.
10 Reasons Synthetic Oil Is Superior To Conventional Petroleum Oil
1. Superior wear protection…. Engines last longer|
2. Improves fuel economy… More miles per gallon
3. Easier cold starts
4. Cooler running engines in high heat
5. Reduces engine deposits
6. Resists oxidation and thermal breakdown
7. Increases horsepower
8. Superior shear stability and film strength
9. Extended drain intervals produce environmental benefits
10. Reduces exhaust emissions
10 Myths About Synthetic Oil
AMSOIL Can Save you Money on Fuel
Fuel economy is
becoming more important with each passing year. Gas and diesel prices keep
rising, putting a major strain on businesses that rely on vehicles and heavy
equipment in their daily operations. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants improve
fuel economy by allowing moving parts to move more freely, using less energy
and creating less friction than when conventional lubricants are used.
Not everyone is able
to downsize their vehicle every time gas prizes go up, but whether
you downsize or not, you'll want to switch to AMSOIL synthetic
lubricants and fuel additives for more efficient, cleaner engine
AMSOIL P.i. Performance Improver increases fuel economy, reduces
emissions and restores vehicle power and performance by dissolving
and removing combustion chamber, intake valve and fuel injector
deposits. In fact, field testing shows AMSOIL P.i. provides an
average fuel economy improvement of 2.3 percent and up to 5.7
percent. Because of this substantiation, as well as the company’s
confidence in the performance benefits of P.i.,

you know the refining process of ULSD to remove the sulfur, can also
increase the paraffin wax content, which enables the fuel to retain
more dissolved water. This also affects the cold temperature
performance of the fuel due to increased temperatures for fuel
gelling and filter plugging due to wax crystals. With the decrease
of sulfur content in modern diesel fuel new challenges have been
presented to both suppliers and users. Ultralow sulfur diesel fuel
possesses lower lubricating properties (lubricity) without the use
of additives from the fuel suppliers. ULSDF also tends to have a
lower cetane and energy content. Storage stability of modern fuels
may not perform as well as in the past since sulfur tended to act as
a natural antioxidant in petroleum products.

Hunters and recreational shooters need their guns to perform when
called upon, sometimes after an extended period of storage, after
sitting for hours in a wet duck blind or while on a remote hunting
trip with few opportunities to clean their gun daily. Since nothing
will ruin a hunting trip or day at the range quicker than a
malfunctioning firearm, AMSOIL firearm products were tested in a
variety of firearms typically found at the range and in the field.
The information gathered, along with extensive testing in the AMSOIL
chemical lab, resulted in products dialed in for outstanding firearm
protection in the most demanding conditions. As seen in the images,
AMSOIL firearm products guard against damaging corrosion, helping
keep firearms working properly for generations.
