AMSOIL CONTINUES AS LEADER OF SYNTHETIC LUBS WITH REFORMULATED OILS

 New regulations on fuel economy and emissions have pushed the automotive industry to develop smaller, more efficient engines. The Prominence of direct injection (GDI) and turbochargers employed to meet rising corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards in placing new burdens on motor oil. Low Speed pre-ignition (LSPI) and increased engine temperatures are two of the more serious challenges to arise from the use of GDI and turbos.

Two new gasoline engine oil specifications have been developed to address these issues.

  • dexos1* Gen 2 (General Motors (GM)* – expected to be released late August 2017

  • API SP/ILSAC GF-6 expected to be released Fall 2019

After months of vigorous testing, we’ve (AMSOIL) produced new formulations that FAR SURPASS the latest standards and add another level of performance and protection to an already solid foundation.

DIESEL vs GAS ENGINES: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE

Diesel Truck - differences between gas and diesel enginesThis is the story about the differences between diesel and gasoline engines: Diesel engines burn diesel fuel and gasoline engines burn gasoline.

The end.

Short and sweet, eh?

Actually, there’s quite a bit more to the story.

Different ways of igniting the fuel
Outside of differences in the fuel used, the most notable difference between diesel and gas engines is the way each ignites the fuel.

Diesel engines compress air in the combustion chamber until the temperature of the air increases enough to ignite the fuel (sprayed into the combustion chamber by the injector). Gasoline engines, on the other hand, use spark plugs that ignite a mixture of fuel and air at just the right time. In the engineering world, we describe the methods of ignition as compression ignition and spark ignition.

So, is that enough, or are you interested in more? If so, keep reading.

Diesels = more durable construction
Diesels are low-rpm, high-torque engines built to last much longer, in general, than gasoline engines. Engineers typically use bigger, heavier and stronger components since diesels are largely designed to work – and work hard.

It’s not uncommon to get 300,000 miles out of the diesel engine in a turbo diesel pickup and 1 million miles out of a diesel engine in an over-the-road truck. Impressive, but even more so when you consider those trucks are pulling or hauling heavy loads.

Modern diesel engines in turbo diesel pickups are typically rated at 400-plus hp and 900 ft. lb. of torque. An over-the-road truck engine can make more than 600 hp and 2,000-plus ft. lb. of torque. Those are huge numbers when compared to the typical big-block gasoline engine’s 400 hp and 500 ft. lb. of torque. True, horsepower is similar, but diesel engines excel at producing torque. And if we know anything about pulling and hauling, torque rules.

Turbos and direct injection
So we’ve established that the diesel engine is a big, bad, powerful long-lasting engine. But here are a couple more technologies that set diesels apart from gasoline engines.

All diesel engines are equipped with a turbocharger and direct fuel injection.

Yeah, I know; you’re saying, “But wait…there are turbocharged, direct-injected gasoline engines out there, too.”

You are correct, but they’ve only entered the scene over the past couple years. The turbocharger jamming more air into the cylinder and the injectors spraying fuel directly into the combustion chamber help accomplish a lot of things.

• Increased power
• Reduced emissions
• Better fuel economy
• Easy-to-control injection timing

Now you see why the gasoline-engine world is copying the diesel-engine world.

Right about now you’re asking, “Gee whiz, if diesel engines are so great, why aren’t we all driving diesel-powered vehicles?”

The answer is history and economy of scale.

Gasoline engines in general are much quieter, and most Americans enjoy listening to the radio in their vehicle without having to turn it up to blaring levels to drown out engine noise. Diesel engines have come a long way with recent technology to make them quieter. But it’s not likely they will ever be as quiet as gasoline engines.

Many people also still associate diesels with the sooty, smelly engines of years past. Thanks to modern exhaust treatment devices and the introduction of low-sulfur diesel fuel, today’s production diesels are much cleaner.

Additionally, we are moving to smaller vehicles for improved fuel economy. It’s hard to take a large diesel engine and shrink it to fit today’s small vehicles. Yes, some auto manufacturers are playing in this realm, but small diesel vehicles are few and far between compared to their gasoline counterparts. Can you image trying to put a diesel engine into a Mercedes Smart Car? The engine would consume the car and you’d have to ride on the roof. A convertible of sorts, I guess.

That covers the basics. If you’re interested in more information, search “diesel vs gasoline” online.

Happy reading.

AMSOIL VS Royal Purple and Mobil 1 Extended Performance: Deposit Protection

   Andy Arendt|Aug 15, 2016 

AMSOIL VS ROYAL PURPLE and Mobil 1 280 Z

In 1985 I worked with my father to replace the heads and make other repairs needed to put a 1972 Fiat Sport Spider back on the road. The experience taught me why, in many circles, FIAT stands for, “Fix It Again Tony.” At 17, when I eventually got to drive the car, I experienced firsthand the pride and excitement enthusiasts have in their personalized statements of horsepower and style. I also found out why enthusiasts pay so much attention to every detail about their vehicle, including the level of protection motor oil delivers.

Turbocharger demands on motor oil

Advancements in automotive technology have since driven advancements in motor oil chemistry and have complicated the process of evaluating oil. Due in large part to the ability to offer power and fuel economy, turbochargers have become one of – if not the most – widely used advancements in performance technology. The following are just a sample of turbocharged 2016 makes and models:

  • Volkswagen GTI
  • Buick Regal
  • Subaru WRX
  • Ford Fiesta
  • BMW 3 Series
  • Ford Mustang EcoBoost
  • Ford F-150 EcoBoost

When exposed to increased heat, motor oils can form deposits, reducing efficiency and contributing to poor overall performance. Given the

number of vehicles on the road now equipped with turbochargers and other performance-enhancing technologies that increase heat, such as direct injection and variable valve timing , deposit control has taken on increased importance.

AMSOIL goes head-to-head with Royal Purple and Mobil 1

Among auto enthusiasts, three brands often dominate the conversation about motor oil protection: AMSOIL, Royal Purple and Mobil 1. Each has a history of providing solid protection. Yet, wherever enthusiasts gather, be it in online forums or car shows, when the topic of serious motor oil protection is discussed the debate often turns to which brand offers more protection. Recently, AMSOIL enlisted an independent, third-party lab to compare the three brands in an industry-standard test that focuses on protecting turbochargers.

Independent test measures turbo deposits

The TEOST 33C test is an American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) bench test that simulates turbocharger operating conditions and, according to the ASTM, the test method “is designed to predict the high temperature deposit forming tendencies of an engine oil.” To meet the API SN Resource Conserving and ILSAC GF-5 motor oil specifications that are often recommended by vehicle manufacturers, a 5W-30 motor oil must limit total deposit formation to 30 mg or less.

The following graph shows the test results from the independent, third-party lab. This industry-standard test shows AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil prevents deposits 4X better than Mobil1® Extended Performance and 3.6X better than Royal Purple®.

Turbo Protection AMSOIL Vs Royal Purple & Mobil 1

The results show AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 held deposits to well under the 30 mg limit recommended by vehicle manufacturers. Test results represent the formulations as they were available to consumers in April 2016. Formulations were coded to eliminate bias during testing, and samples were tested in random order. An appropriate number of trials of each oil were run to produce results at or above the 95 percent confidence level when compared to AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.

Hopefully this information adds a few more data points to the discussion when enthusiasts and people that care about what they drive compare notes on three of the leading brands that offer serious protection for the cars and trucks they take pride and passion in.

AMSOIL Outboard 100:1 Pre-Mix Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Color Change

ATP_2Cycle

In our ongoing process to improve product quality, we’ve adjusted the formulation of Outboard 100:1 Pre-Mix Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil, which has resulted in a change in color from green to blue. The oil continues to provide outstanding performance at 100:1 mix ratios in outboard motors. Pricing remains unchanged at $4.45 for an eight oz bottle.. The new formulation will become available over the next 30 days as current inventory is depleted.

For further information about the #1 Two-Stroke Oil on the market go to http://www.amsoil.com or http://www.The1stSynteticoil.com.  I have used the 100:1 mix ratio for over 20 years and have never had a break down or an engine seize in a weed eater, chain saw, pole chain saw, edger or anything else Two-Cycle.  Regardless of that manufacturers tell people, you DO NOT need 32:1 or 50:1 mix ratio.  Eight ounces of AMSOIL’s Saber Oil to Six Gallons of fuel equals a 100:1 ratio. Or 1.3 ounces to one gallon of fuel equals 100:1 ratio.  With AMSOIL’s Saber Oil you will see NO Smoke, NO Plug fouling and NO Carbon Buildup on the piston or exhaust port.

Call 1-800-777-7094 should you desire to purchase this product.  Give the operator ZO 9792 as the person you have corresponded with.

PQIA ISSUES ADVISORY FOR VALVOLINE NEXTGEN 5W-20 MOTOR OIL

Be advised that ALL Motor Oils are NOT THE SAME and people should be cautious when purchasing oils for their vehicle use or you might end up with huge repair bills.
 
The Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA) recently issued an advisory for Valvoline NextGen 5W-20 Motor Oil. After twice testing a sample of the oil acquired at a retail store in New Jersey, PQIA determined it did not meet volatility requirements set by the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the International Lubricants Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC). While the sample passed viscosity and elemental requirements for the API SN and ILSAC GF-5 specifications, its weight losses of 18.4 and 18.3 percent in the NOACK Volatility Test (ASTM D5800) are about 22 percent higher than the 15 percent maximum required for the specifications.
 
One company publishes all the necessary facts and information about their products and that is the #1Synthetic Lubrication Company in America, AMSOIL, who can proudly say; MADE IN THE USA!

AMSOIL DIESEL OILS ARE UNMATCHED IN PERFORMANCE

AMSOIL, the leader in Synthetic Lubrication, doesn’t just talk about their products but they have the Statistics to prove their claim how AMSOIL products provide better protection, performance and save the customer money. Over-the-road Diesel Truck tests show using AMSOIL Diesel Oils give a 6.54% improvement in fuel mileage thus saving the owner/operators much on diesel fuel costs. Truck owners who have moved from using Chevron Delo 400, Shell Rotella-T, Cummings Premium Blue to AMSOIL Diesel Oils realize that their hard working Diesel Tractors have much lower operating temperatures, less break down of the oil, less sludge, varnish and gum deposits and their drain intervals are extended at least three times longer than using the others products. Also with over-the-road trucking, a truck could be in Florida today with high heat temperatures and in cold country the next day. They have found they DO NOT have to leave engines running all night to keep the engine lubricated. They can shut down for the night and the next morning have instant oil pressure because of the Low Pour Point of AMSOIL products. In tests done with a Cummings 400-D Big Cam, temperatures went from 290 in the transmission down to 210 using AMSOIL products. Less friction, less drag, less heat, less wear equates to more torque thus more horsepower. Engines DO NOT HAVE TO WORK as hard using AMSOIL Products.  And with Oil Analysis, drain intervals could be extended greater than the three-time interval or petroleum.
