What Happens When Motorists Switch to AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil?
When AMSOIL INC. developed the world's first API rated synthetic motor oil in 1972, new parameters for motor oil performance were established. AMSOIL motor oil outperformed conventional petroleum motor oils on all counts. Today, virtually every motor oil manufacturer has followed AMSOIL's lead and offers synthetic motor oils of their own. What can motorists expect when they switch their vehicles to AMSOIL motor oil?
Immediate start-up protection
Sixty percent of all engine wear happens during engine start-up. AMSOIL motor oils use high polarity base stocks and special anti-wear agents that form a thin film that clings to engine parts, preventing metal to metal contact and providing immediate start-up protection. AMSOIL motor oils also lubricate vital engine components by quickly flowing through the engine immediately after start-up.
Higher engine rpms and more power
AMSOIL synthetic motor oil reduces friction more effectively than conventional oils, so engine bearings rotate easier. This saves energy and conserves fuel. When the engine doesn't have to work as hard to move its parts, that power can now be used to drive the vehicle. Many new AMSOIL users also report their shift points actually decrease due to the added power their engines experience.
Increased fuel efficiency
Since AMSOIL synthetic motor oils create less friction, they also help reduce fuel consumption, increasing a vehicle's fuel economy significantly. Operating with AMSOIL, the engine doesn't have to work as hard to turn the wheels, so it takes less fuel to run.
AMSOIL motor oils can reduce excessive operating temperatures of oil sumps by up to 20° F. compared to conventional motor oils. Friction generates heat and since AMSOIL motor oils reduce friction, less heat is generated. AMSOIL motor oils also carry heat away from the engine more efficiently than conventional oils to further enhance the cooling process.
Easier starting in cold weather
Conventional motor oils contain wax impurities that cause the oil to thicken at low temperatures, which slows the flow of oil through the engine at start- up and promotes wear. Conventional oils can thicken to the point where the engine won't even turn over and start. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils contain no wax impurities. AMSOIL motor oils help engines start easier in low temperatures than conventional motor oils and flow more quickly to engine parts for immediate start-up protection. Most users of AMSOIL motor oils find that they no longer need to use a block heater.
