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

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.

Got a vintage Mopar with flat-tappet lifters? The needs of older engines are significantly different than late-model engines with rollerized lifters. To take a look at specific synthetic lubes compatible with flat tappets, click here:

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.

Protection against extreme heat is of the utmost importance in motorcycle applications. The air-cooled V-twin engines used in Harley-Davidson motorcycles can get extremely hot, particularly when idling or traveling at low speeds. If a motorcycle oil cannot withstand hot operating temperatures, its ability to provide adequate engine protection is compromised. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil is formulated to withstand extreme heat conditions beyond the hottest temperatures motorcycles typically experience, providing peace of mind that motorcycles receive outstanding protection and performance no matter how extreme the operating conditions.

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.

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

APPLICATIONS
Use in dual-clutch transmissions that require any of the following specifications:

BMW* 83 22 2 148 578, 83 22 2 148 579, 83 22 0 440 214, 83 22 2 147 477, DCTF-1, MTF-LT-5 • Chrysler* 68044345 • Citroen/Peugeot* 9734.S2 • Ferrari/Shell* TF DCTF-3 • Fiat* BOT 341 • Ford* WSS-M2C-936-A • Mercedes Benz* 236.21, 236.25 • Mitsubishi* Dia-Queen SSTF-I • Nissan* GT-R* Transmission Oil R35 Special • Pentosin* FFL-2, FFL-3, FFL-4 • Porsche* 999.917.080.00, 043 207 29, 043 207 30, 000 430 20 • Renault* BOT 450 • Volvo* 1161838, 1161839 • VW/Audi* G 052 182, G 052 529, TL 521 82
