AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants
Deliver Maximum Fuel Efficiency
Measuring Fuel-Economy Gains, However, Is Extremely Difficult.
I have a confession
to make: I am on my way to becoming a grouchy old man. Not
the type who is grouchy with people, just with situations
that make me feel helpless. One of these situations happens
every two weeks while shelling out a fortune for gas at the
pump. I understand that the early symptoms of "grouchy-old-man
syndrome" start at age 50 and appear as incoherent mumbling
at the gas pump when the receipt comes out. "Forty-nine
bucks to fill this little tank! Someone should go to jail."
I think we all struggle with putting so much money into gasoline or
diesel fuel every month, but it is a reality we face.
Still, we want
some level of control over our financial lives, so many of
us look for ways to reduce fuel consumption and regain some
control. In fact, one of the reasons people choose to buy
AMSOIL products is for the fuel-economy benefits. So how do
you verify that you are enjoying fuel-economy benefits from
any product or technology? Everyone probably does it a little
inputs for fuel economy are the number of miles traveled and
the amount of fuel used. One common method is to record how
many miles you drove between fill-ups. If you record the amount
of fuel you put in the vehicle when you fill up and the amount
of miles driven since the last fill-up, you get a rough idea
of fuel economy by dividing the trip miles by the gallons
pumped into the tank - assuming you filled the tank to the
brim at the last fill-up. There are variables that affect
this calculation - the ability to fill to the same level each
time, the accuracy of the meter on the pump, the octane value of the fuel going
into the vehicle, the ethanol content of the fuel, etc. All
affect the recorded amount of fuel you use. An alternative
method is using the fuel mileage gauge on your vehicle. With
this method, you can actually measure fuel-economy differences
affected by driving routines on the same tank of fuel.
Another big variable
affecting the amount of fuel consumed is driving conditions.
We all know that non-hybrid vehicles get much better fuel
economy in highway driving compared to city driving. It takes
a lot of fuel to start a vehicle and get it going from a dead
stop. So when you examine fuel economy on your last tank of
fuel, do you count the number of times you stopped and started
the vehicle in city driving to make sure it was equal to the
last tank of fuel? What about the number of hills? Wind? It
makes a big difference! is there really a difference In fuel
economy between driving 65 mph and 68 mph? It can't add up
to much, right? Let's take a look at a recent example (see
So it looks like
there is a difference in fuel economy in my 2010 Ford Fusion
driving 68 mph vs. 65 mph on average it's about 0.7 mpg or
2.3 percent. It looks like increasing my speed to 72 mph decreases
fuel economy by 2.0 mpg or 6.2 percent from the 65 mph level.
If I am looking
to verify a 5 percent improvement in fuel economy by using
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants, I need to be pretty careful and try to control every variable possible.
Even a 3 mph difference affects fuel economy by 2.3 percent.
In reality, it is very difficult to control all the variables affecting fuel economy. Most
of the time, the variability in driving routines, equipment condition, fuel
quality, tire pressure, wind conditions, outside temperature,
etc. create so much change that it is almost impossible to
clearly see a 5 percent fuel economy difference due to a lubricant
What we do know
is that, under controlled conditions, there are significant
differences between using lower-quality petroleum lubricants
and correctly designed synthetic lubricants. The data is overwhelming
and it makes logical sense, but all the other variables affecting
fuel economy get in the way sometimes. The need to improve
fuel economy is not going away, so let's continue to help
the other grumpy old men in the world who hate going to fuel
up improve fuel economy with products and information on all
the variables affecting mpg. Published, AMSOIL Magazine 01/14.

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
