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.

The Truth About Synthetics: Way More Than Just Extra HP!

Johnny Hunkins – Author; Hotrod.com

 

<img src=”http://st.hotrod.com/uploads/sites/21/2017/01/2006-dodge-charger-oil-dyno-test-660×440.jpg” class=”wp-post-image wp-post-image” alt=”2006 Dodge Charger Oil Dyno Test 660×440″ itemprop=”contentUrl” />

Oil is sorted in one of the five API base oil groups. Groups I, II, and III base oils are mineral oils that have been distilled and refined from a barrel of crude. Even after the refining, the hydrocarbon’s molecular structural arrangement and sizing remain inconsistent, and the base oils contain organic compounds most notably, oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen, and certain metals. The varying shapes and sizes of molecules result in irregular lubrication surfaces, and these irregularities generate friction within the base oil, increasing engine power consumption and reducing performance. The remaining compounds in the base oil can lead to oxidation, acid development, and the creation of sludge, especially in high-temperature usages. Mineral oils have a viscosity index (VI) ranging from 80-120 depending upon its base oil group. The VI is an indicator of an oil’s tendency to reduce flow with a rising temperature; higher numbers, associated with smaller changes in viscosity with temperatures, are desirable.

Groups IV and V base oils are synthetic oils developed via a process known as synthesizing. These synthetic oils have uniform-sized hydrocarbon molecules, and the base oils are free from contaminates and impurities resulting in a base oil that is consistent and durable. Synthetics have a VI in excess of 150. Group IV base oils are Poly-Alpha-Olefins (PAOs), and they have a wider temperature range compared to mineral based oils. PAOs work great in extreme cold conditions and high-heat usages. Group V base oils are classified as all other oils (esters), which includes silicone, polyaklylene glycol (PAG), polyol esters, etc. A common use of Group V base oils is to add the esters to another base oil. The addition of the esters improves the properties of the existing PAO base oil.

PAOs formulated with esters tend to be the most popular for automotive applications. PAOs have an extremely high VI, high thermal oxidative stability (resistance to oxidation), low volatility (less oil loss at high temperature), excellent low-temperature viscosities, consistent base oil stock, excellent pour points, and have excellent hydrolytic stability (resist water) when compared to mineral oil. PAOs have some disadvantages, which include a limited ability to dissolve oil additives (solvency), a small chance to shrink seals, and higher consumer costs. To offset the disadvantages, adding diesters to PAOs increases the oil’s solubility. Specific esters, called seal swell agents (SSAs) blended into the oil remove any chances of shrinking seals. SSAs are seal conditioners that clean the seal, and the PAOs lubricate the cleaned seal. Lastly, the higher costs of PAOs is offset by the extended service intervals of synthetic oils.

To improve the VI of an oil, enhancers called VI Improvers are added. The VI Improvers are long-chain molecules that can be fragmented by mechanical shearing, which in time results in a lower oil viscosity. Shearing occurs in high-stress areas such as the oil pump, crankshaft area, camshaft area, piston rings, etc. The oil (hydrodynamic film) can be briefly squeezed from between the two metal surfaces splitting the long-chain molecules into shorter, lower weight molecules. The shorter molecules offer less resistance to flow. Shearing can also contribute to deposits, causing sticking rings, increased consumption of oil, and increased engine wear. Synthetic oils often have the best VI Improvers and use less VI Improvers than mineral oils. Less VI Improvers help the oil maintain the higher-grade number (5W-20) for a longer interval. These VI Improvers maintain an oil film strength 5 to 10 times greater than mineral oils.

As mentioned earlier, one main advantage of synthetics is its robust boundary layer, which allows it to cling heartily to engine components when the engine is off. With vintage and high-performance automobiles, this can often be for lengthy periods of time. This protective boundary layer reduces the metal-to-metal contact during the critical seconds after engine startup. The excellent oiliness (a lower coefficient of friction of one oil compared to another fluid of the same viscosity) of synthetic oils reduces engine wear during the initial, critical engine startup. Mineral oils lack such a robust boundary layer, as the oil drains quickly to the oil pan when the engine is off. Nevertheless, the synthetic oil boundary layer affords an enthusiast the necessary piece of mind when their vehicle is started after an extended dormancy. By some estimates, initial start-up and running in the first seconds accounts for as much as 90 percent of all engine wear.

 

Let’s look at this in detail. The largest contributor to the superior shear load protection of synthetics is the uniformity of the molecules. In traditional mineral oils, the lube stock is refined from crude oil, such that all the molecules in the base stock have similar weights—they were sorted (i.e. “refined”) by virtue of their boiling point. Structurally, however, these molecules can be quite different in shape and in length. The degree to which molecules are chemically similar is more a function of luck, and the geology of where the base stock originated.

By way of explanation, all base mineral oil stocks have a distillation curve that represents the average distribution of molecular weight, with the fat part of the curve—the oil’s rated weight—being at the center of a Gaussian distribution (bell curve). Chemically, the compounds in such a diverse base stock will have different properties and shear strengths. In use, the smaller molecules at the bottom of the distillation curve will have a higher volatility and evaporate quickly, causing the oil stock to thicken over time. Longer chain molecules at the top of the distillation curve are mechanically weak and will break under severe pressure, reducing the effectiveness of the boundary lubrication layer. Since synthetic molecules are practically identical in length, structure, and shape, the Gaussian distribution of their weight is tight, so there is no practical variation in the strength or chemical property of constituent molecules. As such, this optimized oil stock shall protect far better, and for far longer than mineral-based oil stocks.

We contacted AMSOIL for a full array of synthetic oils for the engine, transmission, and rear end to test in our late-model Dodge. Our test vehicle would be a ’06 5.7L Charger that had been using a 5W-20 oil, Mopar ATF+4, and Mopar 75W-140 (all mineral based oils). AMSOIL’s Signature Series 5W-20 motor oil and matching EA synthetic media oil filter provide up to a 25,000-mile, 700-hour, or one-year service interval. The ATF chosen was AMSOIL’s Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic, and the gear oil selected was AMSOIL’s Severe Gear 75W-140 and a 4-ounce tube of AMSOIL Slip Lock additive.

With the AMSOIL products installed, the Charger burned five tanks of fuel to establish an estimate of fuel mileage. Our fuel mileage with the AMSOIL product increased by 0.9 mpg. The Charger was strapped to the Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Mustang dyno, and the performance numbers were up as well. Peak torque was up 2.6 lb-ft and peak horsepower was up 4.4 hp. While we could not test component wear, AMSOIL and independent studies have shown the use of synthetics reduce wear and provide cleaner components leading to greater longevity of bearings, pistons, rings, clutches, bands, gears, etc.

So why not try synthetic oils in your Mopar? The initial cost is offset by extended service intervals and increased longevity of the engine components due to the uniform molecule structure, low-temperature pour points, superior stability of viscosity, better shear properties, and superior boundary layer protection. Protracted service intervals mean less disposal of waste oil, benefitting the environment. Finally, putting synthetics in your Mopar will benefit your wallet with better fuel economy, and you will have a few extra ponies under your right foot as a byproduct.

In spite of the immediate short-term benefit, the biggest advantage is in synthetic’s ability to significantly prolong the life expectancy of critical wear components where metal-on-metal contact is greatest. If you plan on keeping your machine on the road for years well beyond the warranty period, a synthetic like AMSOIL will keep bearings, rings, bores, lifters, cam lobes, valve guides, bands, clutches, and pumps running like new well past normal rebuild intervals, and that means money in your pocket.

Mineral oils (left) are refined crude oil lubricants that have varying molecular shapes and sizes resulting in irregular lubricant surfaces. These irregularities produce friction inside the oil, which increases power requirements and reduces efficiency. Synthetic oils (right) have molecular shapes and sizes that are identical, reducing the internal friction in the oil. The reduced friction benefits the engine on cold startup, increases fuel economy, and can improve engine torque and horsepower output.<img src=”http://st.hotrod.com/uploads/sites/21/2017/01/synthetic-oil-molecules-vs-mineral.jpg” alt=”Mineral oils (left) are refined crude oil lubricants that have varying molecular shapes and sizes resulting in irregular lubricant surfaces.

Synthetic oils have a wider temperature range of operation than do mineral oils. The pour point of a Polyalphaolefin (PAO) oil is outstanding, and this allows the oil to move to engine parts much quicker than mineral oil at low temperatures. Synthetic oils do have some extreme cold and hot concerns, but the limitations are well beyond the temperatures where mineral oils have already failed.<img src=”http://st.hotrod.com/uploads/sites/21/2017/01/viscosity-range-synthetic-vs-mineral.jpg” alt=”Synthetic oils have a wider temperature range of operation than do mineral oils.

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 12+ Store Policy Clarification

moveUpToAmsoil

The 12+ Store Policy was revised to allow exceptions to be considered on an individual basis. In response, many Dealers contacted us seeking clarification of the amendment. The revised policy appears below with the change highlighted in red.

Businesses that own more than 12 retail outlets may only register individual outlets as separate retail accounts. Each outlet/account must have the authority to establish an account and place individual orders for its own store. Invoices, co-op advertising credit and other documents will be sent to the individual account.

Individual outlets/accounts may not use centralized distribution, group shipments, transfer inventory between outlets or combine co-op advertising credits. An AMSOIL Dealer may register and/or sell to a maximum of 24 individual retail outlets that are owned by the same business. Exceptions to this will be considered for certain retail segments that are not in direct conflict with the best interests of the Dealer opportunity. Dealers must work in conjunction with the Dealer Sales Department in order for businesses to be considered for an exception. AMSOIL reserves the right to accept or reject account applications and to terminate accounts that do not meet account qualifications or are considered not in the best interest of AMSOIL INC. and the Dealer opportunity.

Businesses considered for an exception include retail and commercial installers, hardware stores, convenience stores and industrial suppliers whose business models are flexible enough to allow them to work with a Dealer and AMSOIL to achieve a mutually beneficial arrangement. Auto parts stores (including those with service bays, e.g., O’Reilly Auto Parts, AutoZone, Pep Boys), mass merchandisers (e.g., Walmart, Sears, Target) and discount stores (e.g., Sam’s Club, Costco, Home Depot) will not be considered for an exception.

The following characterizations will help you identify businesses that are potential exceptions:

  • Retail and commercial installers allocate more than 70 percent of their building to installation and repairs. They may sell a few packaged goods, but the majority of their business and floor space is for installation services. Examples of businesses in this retail segment include:
    • Midas, Firestone, Brakes Plus, Pomp’s Tire, Lube Stop, All Tune and Lube, Tilden Car Care, Boss Shops, Blaine Brothers, Speedco, Love’s Travel Stop
  • Hardware stores offer a high degree of service, convenience and wide variety of traditional hardware, as well as many other household and garage-related items. They typically rely on higher profit margins, but do run promotions. Examples of businesses in this retail segment include:
    • ACE Hardware, Orchard Supply Hardware, Hardware Hank, Do It Best Hardware
  • Convenience stores charge for having a variety of convenience items available in one location, often close to your home or work. They rely on higher prices to stay in business and don’t discount automotive products. Examples of businesses in this retail segment include:
    • Kwik Trip, Gas-N-Go, Easy Mart,  Kroger, Sunoco, Holiday, 7-Eleven, Casey’s General Store
  • Industrial Suppliers provide single-source contracts to commercial businesses for maintenance, repair and operation (MRO) items. They carry a variety of items and don’t discount or advertise like traditional retail, though some have small public “stores” inside their offices.

AMSOIL 100:1 TWO-CYCLE OIL MAKES BELIEVERS OUT OF DOUBTING THOMAS’ USERS

Crank & Rings From Echo WeedeaterDSCN00015-1Piston, Rod and Crank From Echo WeedeaterLots of folks have been non-believers in using AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants so wanted to share these pics after doing a tear down of the Echo Weedeater I used for 17 years. Reason for the tear down was curiousity and desire to substantiate my believe in using AMSOIL’s  Two-Cycle Oil at 100:1 mix ratio. These pics were taken yesterday, August 19, with John Johnson, one of our AMSOIL Dealers who is Chief Lineman with Alabama Power. The parts were not wiped down but placed on the Shop Rag and pic taken with my IPHone 6 Plus. Maybe these will convince some and help others save on their equipment and save the consumer money over costly petroleum products.

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.

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.
