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.

AMSOIL INTRODUCES NEW DCT TRANSMISSION FLUID

DCT

 

Dual-clutch transmissions (DCTs) are automatic transmissions based on the architecture of manual transmissions. The complex system essentially consists of two manual transmissions in the same housing. As one clutch is engaged, the other readies the next appropriate gear, minimizing the interruption of power and improving performance and efficiency. A specially formulated fluid is required to maintain the high-performance output of these advanced transmissions. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic DCT Fluid is designed to protect high-tech dual-clutch transmissions during the most intense, high-heat operating conditions. It provides the fast, smooth shifts drivers expect.

Excellent Friction Durability
Dual-clutch transmissions are capable of seamless, split-second shifts but can suffer from shudder or lurching at slow speeds. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic DCT Fluid is engineered to prevent shudder in sophisticated dual-clutch transmissions. Its frictional properties provide superior protection and consistently produce fast, smooth shifts. Synthetic DCT Fluid’s exceptional durability ensures stability in stop-and-go traffic. It promotes stable synchronizer engagements, extending the life of the transmission.

Outstanding Wear Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid resists the extreme heat in today’s high-temperature DCTs to provide complete protection for gears, bearings and other vital parts. Its high film strength and anti-wear/extreme-pressure additives are specifically designed to protect the metal surfaces of DCTs.

Resists Heat and Oxidation
Maintaining proper viscosity at extreme temperatures is crucial to protect the components of a dual-clutch transmission. AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid provides complete protection during the intense conditions native to high-performance sports sedans and supercars.

Superior Shear Stability
Transmission fluid can shear at the molecular level as it passes between gear teeth. This leads to reduced viscosity and decreased wear protection. AMSOIL Synthetic DCT Fluid resists shear and provides consistent viscosity, even in the extreme stress of high-horsepower, high-torque applications.

  • Outstanding wear protection
  • Excellent performance in extreme heat and cold
  • Designed to prevent shudder

WHAT DOES TOTAL BASE NUMBER MEAN IN LUBRICATING OILS

AMSOIL, the number 1 Synthetic Oil Company in America is always putting the facts on t he line for all to see to keep people informed with important information about Oils and what makes AMSOIL the best product for any application.  AMSOIL TBN number are far and above other products on the market which means better peformance and longterm maintenance savings for the user.

 Generally speaking, the higher an oil’s total base number (TBN), the better its ability to neutralize contaminants such as combustion by-products and acidic materials. TBN is a measure of (alkaline) additives in the oil. Higher TBN oils are able to neutralize a greater amount of acidic materials, which results in improved protection against corrosive reactions and longer oil life.

TBN levels are targeted for the intended application. For example, gasoline motor oils typically display lower TBN numbers, while diesel oils must manage the high contaminant-loading from soot and sulfur and typically have a higher TBN.

TBN levels decrease as the oil remains in service. When the level reaches a point where it can no longer protect against corrosion, the oil must be changed.

Oils that are formulated specifically for extended drain intervals typically display elevated TBN to ensure proper corrosion protection for the duration of the extended interval.

                                                                                        TBN_Test

AMSOIL Advantage – High TBN

Because AMSOIL synthetic lubricants demonstrate consistently high TBNs, they neutralize acidic contaminants and keep them in suspension to prevent corrosion, maximizing engine protection. AMSOIL lubricants use detergent and dispersant additives to significantly reduce sludge and carbon deposit formation. In the Total Base Number Test (ASTM D2896), AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil demonstrated the highest TBN of the oils featured in the test, helping it deliver reliable protection for extended drain intervals.

Note: These test results describe and represent properties of oils that were acquired November-December 2012. Results do not apply to any subsequent reformulations of such oils or to new oils introduced after completion of testing. All oils were available to consumers at the time of purchase. Testing was completed February 2013 by an independent, third-party lab. Formulations were coded to eliminate bias, and samples were tested in random order. An appropriate number of trials of each oil were run to produce results at the 95 percent confidence level when compared to AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil.
