What types of
synthetic base oil fluids does AMSOIL use?
As the developer of the world’s first API
qualified synthetic motor oil 35 years ago, AMSOIL has gained more experience
than any other oil company in formulating synthetic motor oil. AMSOIL draws
from this experience to formulate its products using a full range of synthetic
base oil and additive technology. Most AMSOIL products are optimized using a
combination of premium synthetic base oils, including polyalphaolefins (PAO) and
highly specialized, proprietary esters. The industry’s best severely
hydroprocessed (Group III) synthetic base oils are also used, as is the case
with the AMSOIL XL motor oils. AMSOIL views synthetic base oils the same as it
views additives. Each has its own set of unique properties, and AMSOIL combines
them differently to maximize performance in any given application (gasoline,
diesel, racing, transmission, gear, extended drain, extreme temperature, etc).
