Why Should You Use AMSOIL?

Comments Off

Today’s engines need the extra protection that a premium synthetic motor oil offers. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils and drivetrain lubricants are number one for today’s enthusiasts.

AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants were designed and formulated to safely extend drain intervals from 7,500 up to 25,000 miles. Since 1972 Amsoil has clearly been the leader in advanced formulation of high quality PAO based Synthetic Lubricants. Amsoil has never formulated any of their products to meet a price point as other lubricant companies do, we formulate to meet a specific performance range and let the results speak for themselves.

AMSOIL Introduces European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil

Comments Off

New AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil is specially formulated for the lubrication needs of modern European gasoline and diesel cars and light trucks. AMSOIL European Car Formula provides outstanding performance and protection for high-performance vehicles made by Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche and more. It is formulated to stay in grade throughout the extended drain intervals recommended by European automakers, and is designed for the unique demands of turbocharged vehicles.

Engineered with a select additive package and shear stable synthetic base oils, AMSOIL European Car Formula meets strict ACEA and VW HT/HS requirements. Its low sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS) formulation promotes optimum emissions system performance and life, resulting in reduced maintenance costs. Friction modifiers and the lighter 5W-30 viscosity reduce friction for increased energy through-put to maximize fuel economy.  It provides excellent deposit control and outstanding wear protection for gasoline- and diesel-fueled engines.

AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 is thermally stable to keep oil passages clean and promote fluid circulation so turbo bearings stay cool and lubricated. It provides enhanced turbocharger protection in all temperature extremes, while its thermal stability withstands high-temperature/high-RPM breakdown. Its low pour point protects turbochargers against oil starvation and ensures rapid oil pressure in sub-zero conditions. Recommended for European gasoline or diesel vehicles requiring any of the following performance specifications:

VW 504.00/507.00
ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4
Mercedes-Benz 229.51
BMW LL-04
Porsche C30

Suitable motor oil for some of these specifications is not always easy to find.

AMSOIL Introduces Attractively Priced OE Synthetic Motor Oil in Three Viscosities

Comments Off

AMSOIL announces a new line of attractively priced synthetic oils available in three different viscosities. OE Synthetic Motor Oils provide excellent protection and performance throughout the entire length of original equipment manufacturers’ recommended drain intervals.

AMSOIL OE Synthetic Motor Oils, fortified with friction modifiers, are designed to provide better fuel economy compared to conventional motor oils and reduce friction-related energy loss. It promotes proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions. It is fortified with high levels of detergent and dispersant additives to resist sludge and carbon deposits, promoting clean operation for longer lasting engines.

An increasing number of vehicle manufacturers are recommending drain intervals beyond the traditional 3,000 miles with some recommending up to 12,000 miles with electronic oil monitoring systems. AMSOIL OE Synthetic Motor Oils resist chemical breakdown for maximum wear protection(and peace of mind) well beyond the traditional 3,000 mile oil change interval.

OE Synthetic Motor Oils are a cost-effective alternative to conventional motor oils while furnishing vehicles with the same high and low temperature protection, increased fuel economy and better wear control as other leading AMSOIL synthetic motor oils.

AMSOIL OE Synthetic Motor Oils are available in SAE 5W-20, 5W-30 and 10W-30 viscosities in quarts, 30- and 55-gallon drums and 275 gallon totes. The new competitively priced motor oil is rated API SN, ILSAC GF-5, with the SAE 5W-30 viscosity recommended for the new GM dexos1 specification.

Recommended for use in all types of gasoline-fueled engines.
