NOACK Volatility Test is a Critical Measurement of Motor Oil Quality

NOACK Volatility Test AMSOIL vs Royal Purple vs Lucas OilAMSOIL was the first motor oil company in North America to use the NOACK volatility test to measure motor oil quality and performance. Although competing motor oil companies initially paid no attention to NOACK results, the test has since become a critical measurement tool throughout the industry.

Originally developed and used in Europe, the NOACK volatility test determines how much weight an oil loses through volatilization. The more a motor oil vaporizes, the thicker and heavier it becomes, contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. During the test, the subject oil is heated to 302 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius) for a specified period, causing the lighter oil molecules to boil off. The results are reported in the percentage, by weight, of the oil that evaporates. The lower the number, the better the oil resists volatilization.

Because they are made from impure, irregular molecules, conventional motor oils are more susceptible to the effects of heat. The small, light molecules in conventional oil tend to evaporate (volatilize) as the oil is heated, leaving large, heavy molecules behind and leading to oil consumption and an increase in the oil's viscosity (thickening). If those large, heavy molecules are chemically unstable, they may also break down and form deposits on component surfaces, further inhibiting the release of heat into the oil stream.

Because their formulations minimize the quantity of impure, irregular molecules, synthetic motor oils are generally more resistant to volatilization, allowing them to perform better than conventional oils in the NOACK volatility test. However, due to varying qualities of base stocks and additives, not all synthetic motor oils perform the same in the NOACK test.

Modern engine designs generate more heat than ever, accentuating the importance of the NOACK volatility test for determining an oil's ability to provide an adequate level of protection and performance. More horsepower, turbo chargers and aerodynamic styling have created extremely hot environments that receive less cooling from outside air, and high heat leads to oil oxidation, deposits and thickening in conventional oils.

Because AMSOIL synthetic lubricants contain only uniform molecules, they are much more resistant to thermal and oxidative breakdown. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils help keep components free of damaging varnish, deposits and sludge.

Top quality for the current API SM motor oils specification, gasoline motor oils cannot experience a weight loss of more than 15 percent in the NOACK test. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils were exceeding modern requirements over 20 years ago, while many current motor oils still have a hard time meeting this minimal requirement, increasing wear, fuel consumption and emissions.

As seen in the graph, AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil easily passes the NOACK Test and falls well below the the maximum 15 percent volatilization (burn off) rate dictated by the API SM motor oil specification, while the Royal Purple volatilization (burn off) rate is over 11 percent and the Lucas Oil FAILS the test with a volatilization (burn off) rate of over 40 percent.

A Simple Way to Protect Your Vehicle's Turbocharged Engine

Once reserved for sports cars, turbochargers are becoming commonplace in family sedans as automakers try to squeeze greater efficiency out of smaller engines in order to meet tough fuel-economy standards. The popular Ford Fusion and Chevy Malibu are just two examples of daily drivers available with turbocharged engines. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine can generate as much power as a naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine while using less fuel, offering drivers the best of both worlds.

The added performance and efficiency comes at a price, however. Turbochargers use exhaust gases to spin an air compressor that compresses clean, cold air before directing it into the combustion chamber. The added oxygen means more fuel is added to the fuel/air mixture, resulting in more power. The increased heat turbocharged engines produce combined with the rotational speed of the turbine create brutal operating conditions low-quality oils simply can't handle. Increased heat hastens the oxidation process and causes oil to break down sooner, leading to performance-robbing deposits, while shearing forces inside the turbo can tear apart the molecular structure of the oil, leading to viscosity loss. Oil that has lost viscosity can fail to provide an adequate fluid film to guard against wear, potentially leading to catastrophic damage.

One of the simplest ways motorists can protect their turbocharged vehicles against these challenges is to use only high-quality synthetic motor oil, such as AMSOIL synthetic motor oils, and adhere to the severe-service drain interval recommendations. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils naturally resist extreme heat and viscosity loss in the most demanding conditions. They are formulated using high-quality, molecularly uniform base oils and premium additives to deliver consistent performance in the toughest operating conditions.

It's one of the best investments you can make in your turbocharged vehicle's performance and longevity.

What You Need To Know About Motorcycle Oils

As with any vehicle equipped with an internal combustion engine, proper lubrication is essential to insure performance and longevity. It is important to point out that not all internal combustion engines are similarly designed or exposed to the same types of operation. These variations in design and operation place different demands on engine oils. Specifically, the demands placed on motorcycle engine oils are more severe than those placed on automotive engine oils. Therefore, the performance requirements of motorcycle oils are more demanding as well.

Though the degree may be debatable, few will disagree that a difference exists between automotive and motorcycle applications. In which area these differences are and to what degree they alter lubrication requirements are not clear to most motorcycle operators. By comparing some basic equipment information, one can better understand the differences that exist.

There are six primary differences between motorcycle and automotive engine applications:

Operational Speed - Motorcycles tend to operate at engine speeds significantly higher than automobiles. This places additional stress on engine components, increasing the need for wear protection. It also subjects lubricating oils to higher loading and shear forces. Elevated operating RPMs also promote foaming, which can reduce an oil's load-carrying ability and accelerated oxidation.

Compression Ratio - Motorcycles tend to operate with higher engine compression ratios than automobiles. Higher compression ratios place additional stress on engine components and increase engine operating temperatures. Higher demands are placed on the oil to reduce wear. Elevated operating temperatures also promote thermal degradation of the oil, reducing its life expectancy and increasing the formation of internal engine deposits.

Horsepower/Displacement Density - Motorcycle engines produce nearly twice the horsepower per cubic inch of displacement of automobile engines. This exposes the lubricating oil to higher temperatures and stress.

Variable Engine Cooling - In general, automotive applications usa a sophisticated water-cooling system to control engine operating temperatures. Similar systems can be found in motorcycle applications, but other designs also exist. Many motorcycles are air-cooled or use a combination air/oil design. Though effective, they result in greater fluctuations in operating temperatures, particularly when motorcycle are operated in stop-and-go traffic. Elevated operating temperature promotes oxidation and causes oils to thin, reducing their load carrying ability.

Multiple Lubrication Functionality - In automotive applications, engine oils are required to lubricate only the engine. Other automotive assemblies, such as transmissions, have seperate fluid reservoirs that contain a lubricant designed specifically for that component. The requirements of that fluid differ significantly from those of automotive engine oil. Many motorcycles have a common sump supplying oil to both the engine and transmission. In such cases, the oil is required to meet the needs of both the engine and transmission gears. Many motorcycles also incorporate a frictional clutch within the transmission that uses the same oil.

Inactivity - Motorcycles are typically used less frequently than automobiles. Whereas automobiles are used on a daily basis, motorcycle use is usually periodic and in many cases seasonal. These extended periods of inactivity place additional stress on motorcycle oils. In these circumstances, rust and acid corrosion protection are of critical concern.

It is apparent that motorcycle applications place a different set of requirements on lubricating oils. Motorcycle oils, therefore, must be formulated to address this unique set of high stress conditions.

Is Your Synthetic Motor Oil Really Synthetic?

At one time, synthetic oil was made exclusively from polyalphaolefin and ester base oils (Group IV base oils). Then the landscape became a bit murky in 1999 when Mobil challenged Castrol when Castrol introduced an oil made from Group lll base oil and called it synthetic. The dispute played out before the National Advertising Division of the Better Business Bureau and Castrol prevailed. No big problem there. Group lll base oils offer good performance, and now GTL (gas-to-liquid) base oils have joined the Group lll segment.

The problem is that there is no official regulation. An oil with less than 50 percent synthetic base oil can be labeled synthetic. In fact, there is absolutely nothing to prevent motor oil marketers from labeling oils made from conventional Group l or Group ll base oils as synthetic. There is currently no testing to verify the base oil content. And even if it was proven that the product contained no synthetic oil, there are no legal ramifications since no official definitions exist for the category.

The bottom line, of course, is that in many cases consumers are paying too much for oil that doesn't measure up to the high standards of synthetic as AMSOIL defines the term. And on the flip side, consumers purchasing synthetic oil for $3.43 a quart are, in all likelihood, not getting what they think.

Tom Glenn, the author of an article in Lubes 'N' Greases Magazine (an oil industry trade magazine), offers this as a call to action:

Now is the time to take a closer look at the term synthetic and officially define what constitutes synthetic motor oil, based on measurable and meaningful attributes and clear-cut rules. In doing so, we can protect consumers from cheaters and level the playing field for those that play by the rules. If we don't do it now, it may be too late to do it when synthetics dominate the passenger car motor oil segment.

I certainly hope that gets done. In the meantime, AMSOIL can set consumers straight.

Not all synthetics are created equal, and it may be that not all synthetics are actually synthetic at all.

AMSOIL created the synthetic motor oil market, and we continue to set the standard for performance. Our definition of synthetic doesn't waver. Consumers can be assured that what they see on the label is what they'll see in the bottle. With AMSOIL, people get what they pay for.


A Commitment to Excellence

As a jet fighter squadron commander Lieutenant Colonel Albert J. Amatuzio had ample opportunity to witness synthetic lubricants in action. These oils are used exclusively in jet engines because of three extraordinary performance characteristics: an ability to reduce friction and wear on engine components, an ability to function dependably at severe temperature extremes and an ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemical breakdown.

Recognizing that these same benefits would prove invaluable in combustion engines, Amatuzio began conducting serious research in 1963. By 1966 he had formulated a synthetic motor oil and put it to use in vehicles in northern Minnesota. Throughout the late '60s Amatuzio continued his research and development and sold commercially available synthetic oils under a variety of names. In 1970 he incorporated his own name into a commercially sold product called AMMOIL. In 1971 this product name was changed to AMZOIL and it continued to be sold commercially. The true milestone came in 1972 when AMZOIL became the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute criteria. The new lubricant performed like no other before it. When the first can appeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of an entire industry. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have expanded the boundaries of lubrication science and redefined the performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines.

Know the Facts - AMSOIL Saves You Money!

AMSOIL extended drain intervals means fewer oil changes, long term savings and convenience. Even if you drive only 12,000 miles per year, the cost for AMSOIL motor oil is less than you pay for petroleum oil now! And you still get better wear protection, lower engine temperatures, improved fuel efficiency and easier cold-weather starts. All of these benefits add up to reduced operating costs and longer engine life. Change your oil and filter today and in 12 months change the oil and filter again. That's it! What could be more convenient and good for your vehicle, too?

Better Fuel Economy

Fuel economy is becoming more important with each passing year. Gas and diesel prices keep rising, putting a major strain on businesses that rely on vehicles and heavy equipment in their daily operations. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants improve fuel economy by allowing moving parts to move more freely, using less energy and creating less friction than when conventional lubricants are used.

The use of AMSOIL synthetic motor oil, gear lubes and transmission fluids can have a profound impact on fuel economy. Industry tests demonstrate an average conservative decrease in fuel consumption by two to five percent by switching to synthetic lubricants. Many AMSOIL customers report even larger gains in fuel economy.

The Right Choice for the Environment

Messages on the importance of being "green" and erasing our carbon footprints are everywhere these days. Consumers are becoming increasingly more conscious about how the purchasing decisions they make impact the environment. On the other hand, worries over rising costs of everyday purchases (fuel, groceries, etc.) have consumers scrambling to find a product they can feel good about that won't break the bank. Enter AMSOIL.

Since the introduction of the world's first synthetic motor oil, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have been setting new standards for motor oil quality. 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 outperformed conventional petroleum motor oils on all counts.

AMSOIL INC. has been dedicated to helping reduce negative impacts on the environment. AMSOIL was the first to recommend 25,000-mile/one-year drain intervals. By safely extending drain intervals, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants dramatically cut the amount of oil consumed and emissions produced. This is not a new fad that AMSOIL is jumping on board with; it is the way AMSOIL has always operated.

In addition to the extended drain intervals, AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are specially designed to protect engine components, extending the life of the engine and reducing the need for replacing engine parts. They are also thermally stable with a strong resistance to high temperature volatility (burn-off), preventing sludge deposits and keeping engines clean. Low volatility and clean operation reduce oil consumption and emissions.

The advanced lubricity (slipperiness) of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants has also been proven to increase fuel economy. This reduces dependency on foreign oil and overall fuel consumption. The resulting improvement in fuel efficiency and reduction of emission levels contribute to the conservations of natural resources and protection of the atmosphere.

AMSOIL INC. doesn't just leave the responsibilities of environmental protection to the products; the company itself is diligent in making efforts to keeping the earth clean. AMSOIL recycles virtually 100 percent of the corrugated trays and packaging boxes that come into its facilities, equaling several tons of recycled cardboard each month. All used steel drums and all "clean" plastic bottles are also recycled.

AMSOIL INC. is determined to continue to set the bar high for the lubrication industry across the board, including with regards to environmental responsibilities. Our long-standing quality products lead the way to a greener, healthier planet for all.

Does Your Motor Oil Do This?

Permit Easy Starting?
Motor oil must provide easy cold weather start-up. Petroleum oils are refined oils that contain wax, thickening in cold temperatures and causing the oil to lose fluidity and create drag on the engine upon start-up. Enough drag inhibits the engine from reaching the critical cranking speed required for the engine to start.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils contain no waxes, naturally maintaining their fluidity in extremely low temperatures. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils flow quickly and reliably to allow easy starting and immediate lubricating protection.

Lubricate and Prevent Wear?
Motor oil must prevent the metal-to-metal contact within an engine that causes wear, scoring or seizure of engine parts. Oil films on critical engine parts must be constantly replenished through adequate lubricant flow and distribution.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils cling tenaciously to engine parts, providing superior protection against wear even when faced with high temperatures and intense shearing forces that cause conventional oils to vaporize, shear back and lose their lubricating effectiveness.

Protect Against Rust?
Motor oil must neutralize the effects of water and other combustion by-products that form rust. Rust-inhibition is an especially important feature for stored engines and engines subject to frequent short trip operations.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with special rust-inhibiting additives, preventing the rusting of engine parts.

Reduce Friction?
Motor oil must maintain an oil film that keeps the surfaces of moving engine parts separated, minimizing friction that produces excess heat and inhibits fuel efficiency.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated to keep friction to an absolute minimum, providing outstanding film strength that prevents metal-to-metal contact and minimizing internal fluid friction to provide maximum fuel efficiency.

Keep Engine Parts Clean?
Motor oil must keep engines clean with adequate detergent/dispersant additives that prevent the build-up of sludge and varnish deposits which lead to oil flow restriction, increased wear, loss of power and increased oil consumption.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with top-quality detergent/dispersant additives designed for long-term performance, effectively keeping engines clean and deposit-free while maintaining the superior protection properties of the oil.

Prevent Corrosion?
Motor oil must protect engines from the damaging effects of corrosion formed through the combination of water, unburned fuel, combustion by-products, acids and gases.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with corrosion inhibitors and high total base numbers (TBN), providing outstanding protection against the damaging effects of corrosion.

Cool Engine Parts?
Motor oil must cool several critical engine components, including the crankshaft, rod bearings, camshaft and its bearings, timing gears, pistons and turbocharger. These parts rely on supplies of cool oil in order to pick up and carry heat to the crankcase, where it is transferred to the surrounding air. If parts are allowed to overheat, engine failure soon follows.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated with superior synthetic base stocks, exhibiting exceptional heat transfer properties and lubricity the effectively cool critical engine parts and reduce engine operating temperatures.

Minimize Combustion Chamber Deposits?
Motor oil must burn cleanly and hold combustion chamber deposits to an absolute minimum. Excessive deposits cause spark plugs to short out and combustion problems such as pinging and knock. Deposits also act as heat barriers, causing damage to engine components.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils run naturally cleaner than conventional oils. Formulated with superior detergent/dispersant additive packages, AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils provide outstanding deposit control for extended drain intervals.

Seal Combustion Pressures?
Motor oil must "fill in" the microscopic hills and valleys present on the surfaces of piston rings, ring grooves and cylinder walls, sealing the combustion chamber and preventing high combustion and compression pressures from escaping into the crankcase and reducing engine power and efficiency.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils maintain highly protective lubricant films on rings and cylinder walls, keeping engine power and efficiency at their peak, while also effectively protecting against wear.

Prevent Foam?
Motor oil must contain effective antifoam additives in order to preserve the lubricant's protective qualities. Moving engine parts cause air in the crankcase to be constantly whipped into the oil, causing foam that compromises proper heat conduction and wear protection.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils contain high quality antifoam additives and resist foaming in service, allowing the superior wear protection and heat transfer properties of AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils to be maintained for extended drain intervals.

Enhance Fuel Economy?
Motor oil must reduce friction within the engine, which in turn reduces energy loss to "drag" and allows more energy to reach the drivetrain. The more friction is reduced, the more fuel is saved. The use of lower viscosity lubricants reduces friction and improves fuel economy,

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated to provide maximum fuel efficiency. The smooth, uniform molecules produce minimal internal friction, allowing maximum energy to each the drivetrain. Independent tests show fuel savings of five to eight percent when using AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils Do More Than Other Motor Oils Do.

  • Permit easy starting
  • Lubricate and prevent wear
  • Protect against rust
  • Reduce friction
  • Keep engine parts clean
  • Prevent corrosion
  • Cool engine parts
  • Minimize combustion chamber deposits
  • Seal combustion pressures
  • Prevent foam
  • Enhance fuel economy

The Myth of the 3,000 Mile Oil Change Interval

AMSOIL represented the lone voice for extended drain intervals in America for over 30 years, recommending 25,000-mile/one-year drain intervals. While extended oil drain intervals have been common in Europe for years, other American motor oil companies have mostly avoided recommending them, preferring instead to stick with 3,000-mile recommended intervals despite the contrasting recommendations of vehicle manufacturers and European motor oil companies.

In fact, Marc Graham, president of Pennzoil-Quaker State-owned Jiffy Lube International, was quoted in a 2001 Lubricants World interview as saying, "At [Pennzoil-Quaker State] we use a number internally that if we [shorten the drain interval] by 100 miles [for each car serviced], it would mean an additional $20 million in revenue for the company." He also explained that "if we could move our customers to get one more oil change per year, it's worth $294 million for the oil change alone and $441 million in revenue, when you include the ancillary products and services customers typically buy along with the oil change."

Today, with vehicle manufacturers recommending longer and longer drain intervals and the increasing use of oil monitoring systems, the practice of extending drain intervals has become more mainstream and forced more motor oil companies to take notice.

AMSOIL - Warranty Secure

Your Answer To Misleading OEM Practices

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMS) often suggest in owner's manuals, advertisements or through dealership personnel that motorists and enthusiasts must use the OEM-branded oil to comply with the new vehicle or equipment warranty. Some OEMS include warnings of catastrophic engine failure should a non-OEM oil be used. These tactics are especially pervasive in the powersports market and are calculated to create uncertainty and fear in the consuming public to the point that many consumers feel they are at risk when using anything but OEM-branded lubricants. Generally, the public is unaware that it is illegal for a vehicle manufacturer to tie the warranty of its product to the use of the manufacturer's own lubricant.

Federal law seeks to ensure competition within the marketplace, and that specifically includes guaranteeing continuing warranty coverage outside the use of OEM-branded lubricants. In short, you have the right to use the oil of your choice.

If the lubricant did not cause the problem, the OEM warranty cannot be voided, period.

The Warranty Secure Symbol is designed to reassure consumers that simply using AMSOIL synthetic lubricants in place of OEM-branded lubricants, or practicing extended drain intervals when using AMSOIL lubricants, does not void new vehicle or equipment manufacturer warranties.

AMSOIL Warranty Secure

Feel Secure Using AMSOIL Products

It is against Federal law for an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to deny warranty coverage based solely on the brand of lubricant used. The Warranty Secure symbol informs consumers of this fact. Using AMSOIL synthetic lubricants in place of OEM-branded lubricants, or practicing extended drain intervals when using AMSOIL lubricants, does not void new vehicle or equipment manufacturer warranties.

According to the Federal Trade Commission:

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for companies to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty simply because you used an aftermarket or recycled part.... The manufacturer or dealer must show that the aftermarket or recycled part caused the need for repairs before denying warranty coverage. (emphasis added)

AMSOIL stands behind its products and the people who use them. If the OEM claims use of AMSOIL products violates the warranty, contact AMSOIL Technical Services (715-399-TECH). For complete information on AMSOIL warranties, contact AMSOIL Technical Services or visit:

Innovation and Leadership
AMSOIL has a documented history of innovation and leadership. In 1972, AMSOIL introduced the first American Petroleum Institute rated 100% synthetic motor oil for automotive applications. AMSOIL was the first to introduce a concept of "extended drain intervals" with a recommended 25,000-mile/12-month drain interval. Currently, the AMSOIL product line includes the finest quality synthetic motor oils, synthetic diesel oils, gear lubes, synthetic greases, industrial lubricants, oil filters, air filters and automotive performance products.

The Company of Firsts

AMSOIL has a documented history of innovation and leadership.

  • First to develop an API-rated 100 percent synthetic motor oil.
  • First to introduce the concept of "extended drain intervals" with a recommended 25,000-mile/1-year drain interval.
  • First U.S. company to utilize the NOACK volatility test as a standard of performance excellence.
  • First to produce synthetic motor oils for diesel engines, racing engines, turbos and marine engines.
  • First to introduce synthetic oils that legitimately contribute to improving fuel efficiency.
  • First to manufacture synthetic gear lube for automotive use.
  • First to manufacture a 100:1 pre-mix synthetic 2-cycle oil.

Premium AMSOIL 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.

"AMSOIL 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."


AMSOIL 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.

Another AMSOIL First

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.

THE NOACK Volatility Test
The NOACK 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 and emissions.

AMSOIL Now An ISO Certified Manufacturer
AMSOIL recently received ISO 9001:2000 certification of our Quality Management System (QMS). NSF International Strategic Registrations is the registrar that has verified our QMS meets the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 standard, the most widely utilized quality standard throughout the world for quality management systems.
