AMSOIL - "Our Company makes the Best
Lubricants in the world, period, and challenges anyone or any company to prove
us wrong! That won't happen because our competitors know it's true."
A. J. Amatuzio, President and CEO.
The "3000 mile oil change" is nothing but a myth and a money
generating plan which has been proven to allow increased component wear rates
when compared to a premium quality synthetic oil like AMSOIL. When things wear,
they eventually have to be serviced and/or replaced, and that means you then
have to buy a new vehicle or other piece of equipment more often.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil has been
proven the best for 35 years and will dramatically improve your vehicles
performance, fuel economy, and life!
Did you know that average petroleum motor oils have a much lower
shear strength than synthetic motor oils? AMSOIL synthetic oil does not break
down, shear or loose viscosity under heat and stress. Petroleum motor oil
breaks down under heat and stress and leaves carbon, varnish and sludge deposits
in your engine and allows your critical engine components to wear much more
rapidly. It's no wonder you have to change it every 3000 miles and your local
quick lube or dealership service center can't wait to see you again to charge
you for more of your hard earned money!
In a recent Lubricants World
Magazine interview the president of a major national quick lube chain (which
is owned by a major petroleum oil company) states:
If they can get customers to shorten
their drain intervals by 100 miles it would mean an additional $20 million in
revenue for the company per year and if they can get consumers to do one more
oil change per year it would mean $294 million for the oil change alone and $441
million in revenue when they include ancillary products and services that go
along with the oil change.
In fact, the president of the quick lube chain
openly admits that the bottom line is profits. The shorter the drain interval
the more money the quick lube makes. It appears that the short drain interval
petroleum oils they promote are good at assuring that customers will be back for
another oil change in a relatively short period of time
Isn't it about time you learned the truth?
Don't suppose for a moment that vehicle and equipment manufacturers and other
oil companies don't know about AMSOIL. Most have tested and analyzed it, and in
fact, many automotive mechanical and lubrication engineers that we work with use
it in their own vehicles but still refuse to acknowledge to the public that
AMSOIL Synthetics are superior to petroleum oils and any other brand of
synthetic in every way and can practically stop internal wear in its tracks.
In fact, it’s been said that several major NASCAR and Indy racing teams use
AMSOIL in their race cars yet the oil sponsors logo on the hood and quarter
panels is not what is in the vehicle! They want you to believe it is..... but
it isn't. Fact is, every successful major race car
in the world uses synthetics, and an extremely large percentage of them use
AMSOIL synthetics. It’s not permitted to advertise who they are because they
have such a large amount of money at stake with their sponsors wanting the
public to believe they are using the brand of oil that is advertised on the car.
Synthetic oil is used in every commercial and military jet engine
in the world, as well as in all spacecrafts. That's because synthetic oil
outperforms petroleum oil at high temperature extremes, low temperature
extremes, and everywhere in between. Synthetic oil excels in all applications!
Over the years European auto manufacturers have gradually
increased their recommended drain intervals. Currently, European oil drain
intervals double those currently recommended by the U.S. carmakers, even though
many of the same motor oils are used in both.
More recently, U.S. manufacturers have also increased their drain
recommendations. But despite the fact that
manufacturers are extending new car drain intervals, the major oil companies are
sticking to their 3,000 mile drain recommendations. According to
Automotive Editor, David McFaull, in a feature article he authored in the
December issue of Lubes ‘n Greases magazine, the waste created by these
unrealistic recommendations put the oil companies in an ethical dilemma.
Due to its long-term threat, McFaull names nuclear waste as the top pollutant
today. But he actually compares it to dumped, untreated, used motor oil, saying
that even though it doesn’t have to be buried for thousands of years, dumping
used motor oil comes at a very high environmental price. According to the
Environmental Protection Agency, improperly
disposed used oil is the largest single source fouling our nation’s waters. A
single quart can foul thousands of gallons of water, and up to 200 million
gallons are dumped annually.
McFaull states, “While the nuclear power industry would not
support the production of excess uranium fuel, it is not inconceivable that the
U.S. oil industry would support, encourage, and skillfully promote excess
gasoline engine oil usage, despite the harmful effects of its waste product on
the environment.” He said that, in fact, considerable evidence supports this
The McFaull article notes that AMSOIL INC is the
only oil company making any attempt to promote the one single measure of quality
that a consumer can understand. That is increased drain intervals.
In fact the other oil companies have worked against increasing drain intervals
in the U.S., which means more oil is being made, sold and ultimately disposed of
than is necessary. Therein lies the ethical problem they are faced with. Is it
right to produce more of a product than is needed, knowing that it will result
in increased pollution?
McFaull asks, “Do lube industry managers have an ethical duty to develop and
reveal information on their product that could reduce the pollution burden, even
though it might reduce the size of their market?”
As the quality of motor oils and the engines they’re used in herein the U.S.
have improved, the drain recommendations have not increased to match the oil’s
capabilities. A.J. Amatuzio started AMSOIL INC. with the express purpose of
making motor oils that were of such high quality, they could totally outperform
the oils of the day. The first oil AMSOIL made
extended drain intervals to 25,000 miles or one year. The technology was
available over thirty five years ago. The other oil companies were recommending
2,000 to 3,000 mile drains back then. They haven’t come very far in 30 years!
Today, AMSOIL has 25,000 mile/1-year oil, 35,000 mile/1-year oil or no oil
changes with by-pass filtration and oil analysis testing. The other oil
companies do not have anything that even comes close to what AMSOIL offers.
McFaull states, “(The API’s) stance treats consumers like ignorant yokels –
ignores the high technical skills of the oil industry, the advances in engine
design and material, the vast improvement in engine oil quality over the past
decade, the impact of untreated oil flowing into the environment and common
You might ask why AMSOIL would be in favor of increasing the competition’s drain
intervals. Are today’s petroleum motor oils really capable of longer drain
intervals? If they are already used longer in Europe, how can it be denied?
AMSOIL INC. has no fear of increased
competition from other oil companies on any level, whether it be performance or
AMSOIL is specially engineered to last longer in service and
perform better than any product on the market. AMSOIL’s published tests and over
thirty five years of satisfied customers prove it.
During AMSOIL's 30th
anniversary convention in the summer of 2003, Bobby Unser got up on stage and
told about how his race car differentials could not survive more than one race
up Pikes Peak without needing to be rebuilt, until he started using AMSOIL. Then
his differentials went all race season without needing to be rebuilt. This
experience in Bobby's early years of racing began his long relationship with
AMSOIL in all his race cars. Bobby went on to say that:
"AMSOIL is the Best Lubricant made, the Standard to which all others are
judged," Bobby Unser 3-time Indy 500 Winner, 35 overall Indy Car wins, & 13-time
Pikes Peak Hill Climb Winner.
