Recent Diesel Oil Trends: Addressing Oil Consumption

Using a good diesel oil is essential to keeping engine components clean and protected. But changing tides may be dampening the level of wear protection offered by some oils. To meet emissions standards, oil additives that protect the engine were reduced with the introduction of the API CJ-4 performance specification, in 2006. Reduced additive content may cause unforeseen consequences, such as increased engine deposits, which can lead to oil consumption. Without the cleaning power of these additives to reduce harmful deposits, some diesel oils on the market may be at the tipping point of achieving emissions goals at the expense of engine protection.

Recent Diesel Oil Trends Consumption - Truck on freeway

Cummins, for example, released a Technical Service Bulletin that addresses oil consumption outside of their warranty. The TSB recommends using a custom-formulated oil (which costs $66 per gallon) every 120,000 to 160,000 miles to prevent engine deposits. Considering that many over-the-road truckers can accumulate this mileage each year, most would face more than $600 in extra operating costs per year.

If you’ve experienced this issue, we recommend using AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush and switching to AMSOIL Premium 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil. It offers excellent protection against wear and oil consumption while protecting modern emissions-control devices.

If you prefer an oil with a lower initial price, we recommend AMSOIL OE 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil. In fact, it’s a great option if high oil consumption hasn’t yet been a concern, but you want get out front of potential issues by switching from conventional diesel oil to synthetic. AMSOIL OE Synthetic Diesel Oil meets the requirements for low-emission quality diesel oil and protects under the most severe conditions found in modern diesel engines.

  • Fortified Cleaning Power – AMSOIL OE Synthetic Diesel Oil is formulated with high-quality synthetic base stocks and detergent/dispersant additives that help prevent harmful engine deposits that can lead to premature wear, increased heat and increased oil consumption.
  • Excellent Soot-Handling – AMSOIL OE Synthetic Diesel Oil allows for optimal soot-related viscosity control to maintain stay-in-grade performance. It helps keep soot particles from agglomerating, helping to reduce engine wear.

As times change, we’ll watch trends and look toward affordable engine-protection solutions.

AMSOIL Diesel Oils have the highest TBN numbers of any Diesel Products on the market.  The TBN (Total Base Number) is important because it fights off Acid Formation in oils which in return causes wear to an engine. The BEST AMSOIL Diesel Oil for engines 2007 and earlier is the Marine/Diesel 15-40 Oil. After 2007 a CJ-4 Oil is required and this fall there will be NEW Diesel Oil Designation because of changes in the industry to prevent greater air pollution.  For more information on AMSOIL products go to http://www.amsoil.com or http://www.The1stSyntheticoil.com.

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.

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.

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.

AMSOIL UPDATES DIESEL FUEL ADDITIVES WITH NEW PACKAGING

The AMSOIL diesel fuel additive line boasts several improvements, with AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean (ADF) and AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean + Cold Flow (DFC) featuring new formulations designed to clean both the tough-to-remove deposits surfacing in modern high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) diesel engines and traditional injector deposits. The formulations of AMSOIL Diesel Cetane Boost (ACB) and AMSOIL Diesel Cold Flow (ACF) remain unchanged. All four products feature bold new packaging.

AMSOIL Diesel Fuel Additives

The importance of good maintenance with Diesel Engines, whether in street trucks or cars, over-the-road trucks or heavy equipment can’t be over emphasized.  Good maintenance means better performance and better mileage.   Increasing mileage in over-the-road trucks by just 1% can equate to a huge money bonus for an Owner/Operator.  All over-the-road trucks must stop at State Weigh Stations for inspection.  Particularly in California, fine are levied by the amount of Soot and Smoke emitting from Stacks on a Truck.  That alone could produce a heavy fine.  Save yourself money with good maintenance.

AMSOIL Holds Line On Price Increases

 AMSOIL, the leader in Synthetic Lubrication, is always looking at ways to give the customer and dealer network the BEST prices available depending on their suppliers.   With the extended drain intervals of AMSOIL’s 25,000 or one year service life and their oil filters of 25,000 miles or one year service life OR 15,000 miles or one year service life the cost effectiveness of the #1 Synthetic Lubrication manufacturer in America does safe people time and money.
 
While the price of crude oil has dropped recently, the costs of lubricant base stocks, additives and other raw materials continue to rise. Most lubricant manufacturers are set to implement their fourth or fifth price increase since early February, with these increases expected to slowly work their way into the retail marketplace over the next several months. While AMSOIL has also been affected with increasing costs of raw materials, the company is holding the line on implementing another price increase. AMSOIL has limited its price increases to just three since February, while also limiting the percentage increases to approximately half of the percentage increases implemented by competing manufacturers.
 
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants are the best and most cost-effective choice on the market, saving customers money through extended drain intervals, reduced wear and maintenance and increased fuel efficiency. Customers save even more by registering as Preferred Customers, while the OE Synthetic Motor Oil line provides customers with the enhanced protection and performance properties of a synthetic at a competitive, lower initial price.

NOACK VOLATILITY TESTS ARE CRITICAL MEASUREMENTS OF MOTOR OIL QUALITY

Product Tested: 10W-30 Motor Oil (ATM)

Overview

AMSOIL was the first motor oil company in North America to use the NOACK volatility test to measure motor oil quality and performance. Although competing motor oil companies initially paid no attention to NOACK results, the test has since become a critical measurement tool throughout the industry.

Originally developed and used in Europe, the NOACK volatility test determines how much weight an oil loses through volatilization. The more a motor oil vaporizes, the thicker and heavier it becomes, contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. During the test, the subject oil is heated to 150°C for a specified period, causing the lighter oil molecules to boil off. The results are reported in the percentage, by weight, of the oil that evaporates. The lower the number, the better the oil resists volatilization.

Testing

Because they are made from impure, irregular molecules, conventional motor oils are more susceptible to the effects of heat.  The small, light molecules in conventional oil tend to evaporate (volatilize) as the oil is heated, leaving large, heavy molecules behind and leading to oil consumption and an increase in the oil’s viscosity.  If those large, heavy molecules are chemically unstable, they may also break down and form deposits on component surfaces, further inhibiting the release of heat into the oil stream.

Because their formulations minimize the quantity of impure, irregular molecules, synthetic motor oils are generally more resistant to volatilization, allowing them to perform better than conventional oils in the NOACK volatility test. However, due to varying qualities of base stocks and additives, not all synthetic motor oils perform the same in the NOACK test.

Modern engine designs generate more heat than ever, accentuating the importance of the NOACK volatility test for determining an oil’s ability to provide an adequate level of protection and performance. More horsepower, turbo chargers and aerodynamic styling have created extremely hot environments that receive less cooling from outside air, and high heat leads to oil oxidation, deposits and thickening in conventional oils.

Because AMSOIL synthetic lubricants contain only uniform molecules, they are much more resistant to thermal and oxidative breakdown. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils help keep components free of damaging varnish, deposits and sludge.

To qualify for the current API SM motor oil specification, gasoline motor oils cannot experience a weight loss of more than 15 percent in the NOACK test. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils were exceeding modern requirements over 20 years ago, while many current motor oils still have a hard time meeting this minimal requirement, increasing wear, fuel consumption and emissions.

As seen in the graph, AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (ATM) easily falls below the maximum 15 percent volatilization rate dictated by the API SM motor oil specification.

AMSOIL BY-PASS FILTRATION EXTENDS OIL CHANGE TIME

Today many people are concerned about the price of oil and gasoline.  One way you can SAVE on these items is to EXTEND oil change intervals by installing and using AMSOIL’s By-Pass Filtration System.    By-Pass systems have long been used by over-the-road truckers to provide better performance and dollar savings.   I started using an AMSOIL By-Pass system when I drove a 1978 Chevrolet G-20 Vanup and down the road with NASCAR.   With AMSOIL’s service life of 25,000 miles or one year, I extended the service life of the AMSOIL full-flow oil filter to 50,000 miles and the By-Pass Filter to 25,000 miles.    Today that is even better.  When used in conjunction with AMSOIL Motor Oil and an AMSOIL Ea or Donaldson Endurance Full Flow Oil Filter, Ea By-Pass Filters should be changed every other full-flow filter change up to 60,000 miles.  AMSOIL Ea By-Pass Filters have an efficiency of 98.7 percent at two microns.  (To give you an idea of how fine this is, the human hair is 80 microns in size)  At normal operating RPM Ea By-Pass Filters will filter all of the oil in a typical five-quart sump in less than 10 minutes.   

What are the benfits of By-Pass Filtration:

(1) Dramatically Extends Oil Drain Intervals

(2) Improved Oil Cooling

(3) Increased Filtration Capacity and Life

(4) Increased Fluid System Capacity

(5) Efficient Removal of Small Particles and Soot

(6) Significantly Extended Engine Life

(7) Equipment consistantly runs on clean oil

(8) Increased Engine Efficiency

(9) Removal of Particles Less Than One Micron In Size

Frequently various people submit to AMSOIL how they have installed a By-Pass System on their vehicles.  Two such examples can be found here; one on a 2005 Ford 250 Superduty Pickup and also on a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado Truck. 

Information on other AMSOIL By-Pass Filter Installation pictures and information such as Motorcycles, Marine use, Industrial, Heavy Duty, cars, trucks and SUV’s can be found here: http://www.amsoil.com/bypassfilters/index.aspx

NOTHING OUTPERFORMS Mobil 1? WRONG- AMSOIL DOES! TEST RESULTS BELOW:

The following information was taken from test results performed between AMSOIL and Mobil 1.  These results have been continuously updated and for the latest comparisons check out the test results at the following addy:  https://www.amsoil.com/lit/g1971.pdf.  What is intersting is that these other companies talk about their products being excellent, great, superior etc but where are the TEST RESULTS.  The AMSOIL company DOES NOT hide any results.  Go into any parts store, Wal-Mart, K-Mart or other places that sell automotive producst and ask to see a Product Data Sheet on a particular oil, gear oil. transmission fluid, grease etc.  You will not get such a thing and further more the person behind the counter will not have any idea what you are talking about.  Ask about Flash Point, ask about Fire Point, ask About Pour Point and see the idiot stare you will get back from the person you are talking with.  AMSOIL produces that information and they put it IN PRINT.

Further other companies try to sell you their product and tell you it is a 7,500 or 15,000 mile service life oil.  DO THEY TELL YOU THE OIL FILTERS THEY SELL WILL NOT SUPPORT THE MILEAGE CLAIM they are selling the oil for. NO they do not tell you because they are interested in selling you the oil and the rest is left up to you the uninformed customer.  NO Paper or pleated paper filter will perform for those extended mileage intervals.

Another point to remember is IF you are changing oil every 3,000 or 5,000 or 7,500 miles, everytime you change oil, that means another Oil Filter is sold and the old one goes into our land fills. 

The two most imporant tests performed on oils are called the NOACK Volitility Test and the Four-Ball Wear Test.   Check out the test results and see where the oil you are using stands compared to AMSOIL.

AMSOIL – “Our Company makes the Best Synthetic Lubricants in the world, period, and challenges anyone or any company to prove us wrong!  That won’t happen because our competitors know it’s true.”
Here’s a special excerpt from A.J. Amaturio, Presiden t of AMSOIL, as written in the monthly AMSOIL Action News regarding AMSOIL and Mobil 1: Test results below.
“As most of you are aware. Mobil 1 was introduced after AMSOIL had paved the way for synthetic motor oils back in the ’70’s. When it was introduced it cased great concern among many of our Dealers. But in my Presidents Message at the time, I assured everyone that having Mobil 1 on the market would only help us sell more oil. Mobil confirmed everything we had been saying about synthetic oils, and our products and claims instantly became more credible.
Since then, we have always been compared to Mobil 1. When people think of synthetic motor oil, they think of Amsoil and Mobil 1, not the other Johnny-come-lately’s that have come on the market more recently. I have always said that Mobil 1 is a good motor oil, because compared to the run-of-the-mill motor oils on the market, it is. I have also always said that AMSOIL motor oil is better, again, because it is. Mobil makes their oils to run at normal drain intervals while we make ours for extended drain intervals, and therein lies the difference.& nbsp; Their oils don’t have to be as good as ours, so they are not.
To prove that point, we ran a number of comparative tests on our 5W-30 and Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-30. The test results were published and they confirm what I have been saying all along. AMSOIL makes a better motor oil. These test results show significant differences between the oils. Look at the results of the NOACK Volatility Test. Which synthetic oil is going to last longer in service? Look at the difference in Total Base Numbers. Again, which oil is going to provide the longest lasting protection? Look at the Four Ball Wear Test. Which oil will protect against engine wear better? In every category we tested, Amsoil proved superior. Lower pour point, higher flash and fire points, AMSOIL tested best. So when I hear claims that nothing outperforms Mobil 1, I have to say “wrong!”. They may have good slogans and marketing hype, but when it comes to superior performance, I say nothing beats AMSOIL!”  A. J. Amatuzio, CEO AMSOIL President

AMSOIL INC. set out to examine the specifics of the overly broad Nothing Outperforms…Mobil claim. AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (ASL) and Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-30 Motor Oil were analyzed in five key bench tests measuring motor oil performance: NOACK volatility, flash/fire point, pour point, four ball wear and total base number (TBN). As shown in the charts below, AMSOIL outperformed Mobil 1 in all five areas.

NOACK Volatility
The NOACK 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, increased oil consumption and excessive wear and emissions. A maximum of 15 percent evaporation loss is allowable to meet the API SL and ILSAC GF-3 specifications. As shown in the graph, AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil lost an extremely low 4.9 percent of its original weight during high-temperature service, m aintaining its superior protective and performance qualities,while Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-30 Motor Oil lost 9.17 percent of its original weight.

Four Ball Wear
The Four Ball Wear Test determines the wear protection properties of a lubricant by measuring the wear scars produced by four metal balls in sliding contact under the test parameters. The smaller the average wear scar, the better the wear protection provided by the lubricant. As shown in the graph, AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil completed the Four Ball Wear Test producing a smaller wear scar than the Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-30 Motor Oil.

Flash/Fire Point
The Flash/Fire Point Test determines the lowest temperatures at which application of a flame will cause lubricant vapors to ignite (flash point) and sustain burning for five seconds (fire point). Lubricants with higher flash and fire points exhibit more stable volatility characteristics and are safer to use and transport. As shown in the graph, AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil has higher flash and fire points than does Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-30 Motor Oil.

Pour Point
The Pour Point Test determines the lowest temperature at which a lubricant flows.The lower a lubricants pour point,the better protection it provides in low-temperature service. As shown in the graph, AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil has a lower pour point than Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-30 Motor Oil.

Total Base Number
Total Base Number (TBN) is the measurement of a lubricants reserve alkalinity. The higher a motor oils TBN, the more effective it is in handling contaminants and reducing the corrosive effects of acids for an extended period of time. As shown in the graph, AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil has a higher TBN than Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-30 Motor Oil.
Mobil will not recommend or guarantee 25,000 mile/1-year drain intervals like AMSOIL 5W-30, 10W-30 or 10W-40 or 35,000 mile/1-year drain intervals like AMSOIL 0W-30 Severe Service Synthetic does and that is a fact. No-where on the Mobil bottle does it state 25,000 miles/1-year or 35,000 miles/1-year.
Mobil 1 has run the tag line for their advertising stating “nothing outperforms Mobil 1”. Mobil makes a good oil, but I’m here to tell you that it does not outperform Amsoil Synthetic Oils. They can come out with all the catchy advertising buzz words to market their oils, but in the final analysis, buzz words don’t add one thing to their product’s performance. The only reason Amsoil has continued to grow and prosper competing with large corporations like Mobil is that AMSOIL products have consistently performed better.

Again the Proof is in the Pudding.  Check things out for yourself.  To order call, 1-800-777-7094 and use ZO 9792 when talking with an AMSOIL operator.  You can check things our further by going to www.The1stSyntheticoil.com or www.lubedealer.com/southeasternlubricants
