Which AMSOIL Products Are Recommended
For Your Vehicles?
Change Your Motor Oil Once A
Year, But Check It More Often
vehicles consume some oil, but maintaining proper motor oil
levels helps ensure your vehicle is protected.
As an AMSOIL Dealer
or Preferred Customer, you understand the importance of motor
oil and its contributions to ensuring trouble-free, long-term
vehicle operation. And you understand the value - in time,
financial savings and reduced environmental impact - that
can be realized using extended drain intervals. The days of
the 3,000- mile oil change are gone, but many consumers still
spend money unnecessarily - wasting time, labor and oil -
by adhering to this antiquated schedule. Changing your motor
oil to AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil can extend
an oil change out to 25,000 miles or one year. Additionally,
your engine will receive the superb and guaranteed protection
afforded by AMSOIL products. However, it's also important
to understand that extended oil drains do not mean "fill
and forget until the next oil change."
As discussed in
2011 Tech Talk,"... almost all cars consume some
oil, which is normal and does not cause any issues with extended
drain intervals." One of the most important gauges in
your vehicle is the oil dipstick. When was the last time you
used it? Checking your oil level regularly is a quick and
easy way to monitor oil consumption that occurs during normal
What is a normal
rate of oil consumption? It depends on the vehicle, its mechanical
condition, how it is driven and other factors. Engines with
higher miles typically consume more oil than engines with
lower miles. One quart of oil for every 2,000 to 3,000 miles
driven is considered normal oil consumption, but this is only
a reference and varies from one vehicle to the next. Check
a vehicle's oil level weekly until a pattern is discovered.
Let's suppose you
have a vehicle with a five-quart oil sump where one quart
of oil is consumed every 3,000 miles. After 3,000 miles, four
of the original five quarts remain - a 20 percent reduction
in oil volume. Consider a set of tires inflated to only 80
percent of recommended capacity. You could still drive on
them, but fuel economy would suffer greatly and the tires
would wear rapidly. There must be enough
oil in the oil pan to cover the oil pump inlet, but not so
much that the crankshaft can touch the oil. With a 20-percent
reduction in oil volume, less oil is available to travel the
oil gallery passages that supply lubricant to engine components.
There is also less oil available to cool in the oil pan, which
means the oil spends more time in the engine's
high-temperature regions where heat and shearing conditions
can reduce service life.
But motor oil
must do more than just lubricate moving parts; it must also
provide corrosion protection, control temperature and contamination,
and serve as hydraulic fluid to actuate systems in newer engines.
Lower oil volume means a lower volume of oil additives - antioxidants,
detergents, dispersants, rust and corrosion inhibitors and
anti-wear agents - all of which help motor oil perform its many
duties. The greater the amount of contaminants present in
motor oil, the faster the oil additives are depleted. Keeping motor
oil at the correct level ensures the maximum availability
of vital additives.
Just as low oil
levels affect engines, overfilling an engine with oil can
be detrimental too. If levels become too high, it's
possible the rotating
crankshaft will touch the oil, aerating and whipping it into
frothy foam. This action creates more crankshaft drag and
reduces fuel economy.
In addition, the oil foam creates air in the system that can
degrade or destroy the lubricating film between moving parts,
resulting in increased friction and wear. Excessive quantities
of oil may be thrown on the cylinder walls and some of it
will work its way up into the combustion chamber. This results
in higher oil consumption rates, which reduces oil volume
and eventually brings us back to the previous scenario.
oil topped off at the proper level is peace-of-mind maintenance
that all drivers should make a part of their routines. Published,

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
