Natural Gas is an Up-and-Coming
Alternative to Gasoline and Diesel
stationary engines to heavy-duty equipment and even passenger
cars, natural-gas engines are becoming more prominent.
Technical Product Manager,
have been the talk of the town for over 10 years now, and
the quest to reduce engine emissions, fuel costs and dependence
on foreign oil often leads to fuels other than gasoline or
diesel. Natural gas is one of these up-and-coming alternative fuels. For many of us, natural gas
heats our homes and runs our stoves, water heaters and clothes
dryers. This low-carbon fuel is making its way to powering
a variety of natural gas engines for both stationary and vehicular
applications. Compared to the relatively complex chemical
structures of gasoline and diesel, natural gas has a relatively
simple chemical makeup primarily composed of methane. When
natural gas is burned, it produces fewer pollutant emissions than
coal or petroleum products, which makes it a natural choice
on the quest to reduce engine emissions.
of natural gas are used: compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied
natural gas (LNG) and renewable natural gas (RNG) or biomethane.
CNG is natural gas compressed into high-pressure containers
for storage or transport. LNG is achieved by cooling natural
gas to -260 degrees F at atmospheric pressure. LNG is 1/600th
the volume of natural gas at atmospheric temperature and pressure,
making it ideal for applications that are weight or space
limited. Biomethane, or biogas, is a naturally occurring,
renewable energy source created by the breakdown of organic
matter, such as farm and landfill waste. This low-carbon organic
waste can be processed to high-quality natural gas suitable
for use in pipeline or a variety of stationary and vehicular
gas engines are used in many mobile applications, including
public transit buses, refuse haulers, delivery trucks, school
buses and many other medium-/heavy-duty trucks. Natural gas
has even made its presence into a few small passenger vehicles
such as the Honda Civic; and Ford, General Motors and Ram
have natural-gas-powered light-duty pickup trucks. Because
of the limitations in engine availability, the heavy-duty market
is primarily where natural gas is being used today. The limited
number of natural-gas filling stations has also put constraints
on the expansion of applications outside of engines either
directly connected to the natural-gas pipeline or to vehicles
that return to base daily. So if you are looking for natural-gas-powered
vehicles, think locally and look at medium- to heavy-duty
applications performing duties similar to diesel-powered vehicles.
Nearly all the
natural gas used in North America is produced domestically,
allowing local control over the energy supply. The cost of
natural gas is substantially less than diesel or gasoline,
resulting in reduced fuel costs. Many cities and states are
looking to natural gas for two main reasons: First, natural-gas
engines are much quieter than their diesel counterparts. An
idling diesel engine can be up to 10 times louder than a natural-gas
engine. Because these engines often operate in the public
sector, reducing engine noise creates more peaceful environments
for operators, passengers and bystanders alike. Second, natural
gas produces lower levels of nitrogen oxides and particulate
matter emissions than diesel. Complying with the emissions
regulations set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or the California
Air Resources Board (CARB) has become essential to conducting
business in North America.
have specific lubrication demands that differ from those of
diesel and gasoline engines. AMSOIL continues to be at the
forefront of natural-gas engine lubrication and is involved
in various natural-gas organizations. We have run multiple
field trials proving our superior lubrication chemistry, and
we continue to strive to improve lubrication for these engines
through analytical and laboratory testing. AMSOIL Synthetic
Vehicular Natural Gas Engine Oil (ANGV) and AMSOIL Synthetic
Stationary Natural Gas Engine Oil (ANGS) both feature a low-ash
formulation to minimize deposits that can lead to engine knocking
and valve recession, while anti-wear additives provide excellent
wear protection. Their thermal stability minimizes oxidation,
and their low volatility reduces oil consumption. With oil
analysis, both are proven for use in extended-drain-interval
vehicles currently represent a small percentage of the overall
vehicle market, steady growth over the next decade is expected.
A study from Pike Research (a research and consulting firm
focusing on clean technology markets) forecasts worldwide
sales of natural-gas trucks to grow at a compound annual growth
rate (assuming a steady rate of growth much like the rate
of return on an investment) of 14 percent between 2012 and
2019. The vehicular natural-gas market represents another
arena of opportunity for AMSOIL Dealers, now and in the future.
Remember, although these heavy-duty engines are similar to
diesel engines, they do come with some very important differences
that you should be aware of. Take a little time some evening
and Google "natural-gas vehicles." Prepare to be
astonished at the quantity of information about natural gas
that has made its way into our lifestyles already. Published,

AMSOIL Signature Series
Synthetic Motor Oil
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic
Motor Oils are formulated to meet the latest API SN Resource
Conserving and ILSAC GF-5 industry specifications. AMSOIL
Signature Series Oils include 0W-20, 0W-30, 5W-30 and 10W-30
and represent the very best motor oils AMSOIL has to offer,
allowing motorists to take advantage of maximum extended
drain intervals. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor
Oils are recommended for drain intervals of up to 25,000
miles/one year, whichever comes first (15,000 miles/one
year in severe service conditions).

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.

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
