Environmental Benefits of AMSOIL
Innovation, Efficiency &
Our mechanized society cannot function
without lubricants. The dilemma is oil is both necessary for
our life-style and potentially destructive to nature. Quite
simply, we must select innovative, efficient products that
will help solve our pollution problems.
The introduction of AMSOIL synthetic
motor oil in 1972 set all new standards for motor oil quality.
AMSOIL lubricants are 100% synthetic. They are specially designed
to protect engine components, reduce emissions, last longer,
reduce fuel consumption and prevent environmental pollution.
From the beginning, AMSOIL synthetic motor oils have out-performed
conventional petroleum motor oils on all counts.
AMSOIL synthetic motor oils
resist chemical breakdown and sludging which keeps engines
cleaner. They have been specifically designed not to oxidize,
volatilize or shear back, resulting in a motor oil that lasts
longer than conventional petroleum motor oils. While petroleum
motor oil manufacturers recommend oil changes every 3,000
miles, AMSOIL synthetic motor oils protect engine components
up to 35,000 miles or 1 year, dramatically extending oil change
AMSOIL Prescription for Prevention:
According to the U.S. Department of
Energy's Pollution Prevention Requirements, the first step
in revitalizing a cleaner nation is pollutant source reduction.
AMSOIL accomplishes this by
extending the interval between motor oil changes which can
reduce the source of motor oil pollution more than eleven
Consider this: in 1993 an estimated
189.5 million motorized vehicles were on the road in the United
States alone, and an estimated 700 million motorized vehicles
were in operation throughout the world. If, by petroleum oil
manufacturer's recommendations, these vehicles have their
oil changed every 3,000 miles on an average five-quart system,
almost 1 billion quarts of used oil will be generated each
month. So are we drowning in oil? It is estimated at present
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.
How dangerous is used oil? Just
one quart can pro-duce 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 kill fish. Improperly disposed used
oil is dangerous.
Improperly dumped used oil seeps
through landfills into ground water, disrupts bacterial digestion
in sewer treatment plants and washes into lakes and harbors.
At present, used motor oil is the largest single source of
oil pollution in our nation's waterways. Certainly the first
thing we can do is not create so much used oil to begin with
. . . and the United States Department of Energy seems to

or down the sewer.
||is thrown out with the trash, ending
up in landfills.
||is reused for miscellaneous purposes.
Prevent Billions of Quarts From
Most automobile manufacturers recommend
oil drain intervals of 3,000 to 6,000 miles for petroleum
motor oils. AMSOIL recommends up to a 35,000-mile oil change
which is 5 to 11 times fewer oil changes. Just think about
the savings on the environment if, for example, the 135 million
cars (excluding trucks, buses and taxis) in the United States
were equipped with AMSOIL motor oil. Assuming an average service-life
of 100,000 miles and an oil capacity of 5 quarts each, 11.4
billion to 22.3 billion quarts of used oil will be generated
during a regular service lifetime (with regular oil changes
every 3,000 to 6,000 miles). If you put 22.3 billion quarts
of used oil into 55-gallon barrels and loaded them onto semi-trucks,
a line of trucks would stretch end-to-end from Los Angeles
to Washington D.C. and back to Los Angeles.
For nearly three decades, AMSOIL INC.
has been recognized as the leader in synthetic lubrication
technology. AMSOIL was the first to introduce a synthetic
motor oil qualified by the American Petroleum Institute, the
first to recommend 25,000-mile/1-year drain intervals, the
first to recommend 35,000-mile/1-year drain intervals, and
the first to implement a system for dramatically increasing
drain intervals with oil analysis. Decades of research, laboratory
analysis and millions of engine miles have kept AMSOIL the
leader in automotive applications for synthetic lubrication.
Although the results have paid off in maximizing efficiency
and minimizing waste, they are not conclusive. AMSOIL is the
leader in synthetics and with continued research, analysis
and product development will remain the industry's leader.
Looking Toward The Future
In 1983 AMSOIL created the TRI-GARD
system. The life of a lubricant is dependent on the quality
of oil and the filtration system's ability to keep it clean.
The AMSOIL TRI-GARD system incorporates AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil, the AMSOIL Foam Air Filter, the AMSOIL By-Pass Filter
and oil analysis to dramatically extend the oil change interval.
Less oil changed means less oil disposal and less oil pollution.
With regards to the environment, the AMSOIL TRI-GARD System
is the most technologically sound, environmentally friendly
motor oil program to reduce oil disposal.
Benefits of AMSOIL
Reduces Emissions: Increases
Each year nearly 600 million gallons of motor oil are burned
and exit through the tailpipes of cars and trucks, creating
emissions pollution. Petroleum oils volatilize (burn off)
more readily than AMSOIL synthetic oils and create more emissions
graph at the right shows the results of five oils that underwent
the NOACK Volatility Test. Of all the oils tested, AMSOIL
shows dramatically less weight loss . . . less than half the
weight loss of some of its competitors. Some oils tested lost
20 percent of their weight. That means almost one fifth of
the oil boils away and is released into the environment. For
most cars, that's approximately a quart of oil being burned
and expelled into nature.
The thicker oil left behind
after volatization contributes to damaging deposits, sticky
piston rings and oil blow-by, all of which cause reduced engine
life, reduced fuel economy and increased air pollution.
Greater Fuel Economy
The advanced lubricity (slipperiness)
of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants has been proven to increase
fuel economy by 2-5%. AMSOIL reduces friction and allows your
engine to use its heat-energy more efficiently.
How Much Is a 5% Savings in
Fuel? The average person drives slightly more than 10,000
miles each year. A 5% savings in fuel gives you about $50
in savings a year (assuming you get 30 mpg, at $3.00 per gallon)
|Worldwide Vehicle Population: 1970:
245 million 1985: 520 million 2000: (est.): 800 million
If, in the year 2000, these vehicles change oil 3 times
each year and have 5 quart systems, 1 billion quarts of
waste oil will be generated each month.
"Each month, petroleum products
emit the equivalent of an 'oil spill' into the Los Angeles
Basin's air as massive as the 10-million-gallon spill
from the Exxon Valdez, according to the South Coast
Air Quality Management District." (Truckers' News
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
