AMSOIL Saves You Money
AMSOIL extended drain intervals means fewer oil changes, long term savings and convenience.
Even if you drive only 12,000 miles per year, the cost for AMSOIL Motor Oil is less than you pay for petroleum oil now! And you still get better wear protection, lower engine temperatures, improved fuel efficiency and easier cold-weather starts.
All of these benefits add up to reduced operating costs and longer engine life. Change your oil and filter today and in 12 months change the oil and filter again. That's it! What could be more convenient and good for your vehicle, too?
AMSOIL Saves You Time
By allowing you to go up to 1 year/40,000 km between oil changes AMSOIL saves you time.
AMSOIL Gives You Better Fuel Economy
Fuel economy is becoming more important with each passing year. Gas and diesel prices keep rising, putting a major strain on businesses that rely on vehicles and heavy equipment in their daily operations.
AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants improve fuel economy by allowing moving parts to move more freely, using less energy and creating less friction than when conventional lubricants are used.
The use of AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil, gear lubes and transmission fluids can have a profound impact on fuel economy.
Industry tests demonstrate an average conservative decrease in fuel consumption by two to five percent by switching to synthetic lubricants. Many AMSOIL customers report even larger gains in fuel economy.
AMSOIL – The Right Choice for the Environment
Messages on the importance of being "green" and erasing our carbon footprint are everywhere these days. Consumers are becoming increasingly more conscious about how the purchasing decisions they make impact the environment.
As our world strengthens its environmental policies and grapples with pollution issues, the ecological wisdom of using synthetic lubricants becomes obvious.
Since the introduction of the world's first synthetic motor oil, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have been setting new standards for motor oil quality. They are specially designed to protect engine components, reduce emissions, last longer, reduce fuel consumption and prevent environmental pollution.
From the beginning, AMSOIL Synthetic Oils have outperformed conventional petroleum lubricants on all counts.
AMSOIL INC. has been dedicated to helping reduce negative impacts on the environment.
The combined use of AMSOIL motor oil and AMSOIL oil filters greatly extends oil change intervals. By safely extending drain intervals, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants dramatically cut the amount of oil consumed and emissions produced.
These remarkably long drain intervals help ease the world’s waste-disposal problem. Users of synthetics simply have much less oil and fewer plastic containers to deal with, resulting in less used oil finding its way into sewers and landfills.
“Phosphorus is a major component of additive packages and has been identified as a threat to the environment and catalysts. Most additive phosphorus volatilizes shortly after the oil is initially put into the crankcase, and you get a single phosphorus spike for a few hundred miles, impacting on the catalytic converter and the environment.”
“There’s much lower volatility during the rest of the oil’s life, with much less catalytic and environmental impact. So each time you drain and refill a crankcase you get that phosphorus spike all over again. With five unnecessary oil changes, that adds up to an unnecessary environmental load.”
Dean Alexander, Executive Vice President and General Manager
In addition to the extended drain intervals, AMSOIL Synthetic Oils are specially designed to protect engine components, extending engine life.
The superior lubricity (slipperiness) of AMSOIL products means much less friction, drag and wear on critical engine parts. They are also thermally stable with a strong resistance to high temperature volatility. Low volatility and clean operation reduce oil consumption and emissions.
Additionally, AMSOIL has made the technology of biodegradability a top research priority, with encouraging recent successes. The resulting improvement in fuel efficiency and reduction of emission levels contribute to the conservations of natural resources and protection of the atmosphere.
AMSOIL recycles virtually 100 percent of the corrugated trays and packaging boxes that come into its facilities, equaling several tons of recycled cardboard each month. All used steel drums and all "clean" plastic bottles are also recycled.
Because its Environmental Management Systems are registered to ISO standards, AMSOIL customers can be assured that AMSOIL is actively monitoring and reducing its environmental impact.
AMSOIL INC. takes environmental stewardship seriously and takes deliberate steps to minimize the company’s environmental impact. Our long-standing quality products lead the way to a greener, healthier planet for all.
AMSOIL is determined to meet the challenge of the lubrication industry’s environmental responsibilities head on.
Canada’s Environmental Handling Charge
The following provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec participate in a product management program to facilitate cost-effective collection and recycling of used oil, oil filters, and oil containers.
AMSOIL is a “Used Oil Management Association” member in each of these provinces.
These associations were set up to implement and manage this program on the behalf of AMSOIL along with other related companies.
AMSOIL bears the responsibility of collecting and remitting the “Environmental Handling Charge” when shipping to these provinces.
A Note from the Founder
“This might sound strange coming from the founder and CEO of an oil company, but we at AMSOIL can’t be happier about the nation’s stronger commitment to cleaning up the environment. It means that we’re taking our first steps toward an ecological future that will benefit generations to come.
Another reason for our happiness is that we are among a tiny fraction of manufacturers who have a product that nestles very nicely into the next millennia of environmental products. We manufacture very high quality synthetic lubricants – high quality not only because we want them to be, but in a field dominated by corporate giants, quality is imperative. It’s the only way we can survive.
It’s a wonderful characteristic of our synthetic oils that they outlast regular oils by as much as eight times. In fact, with proper filtrations and oil analysis, our oils have gone 100,000 miles or more without draining.
For the environment, long drain intervals mean less waste disposal, less used oil finding its way into sewers and landfills, less oil purchases and fewer plastic containers to deal with (ours do have the recycle symbol for easy waste management). And we’ve shown our oils reduce fuel and oil consumption, as well as emissions.
Selling a product in the 1990s that reduces pollution is not a bad way to make a living. We think that we’re a small – but important – part of the solution, and being part of the solution is just fine!
The paradox here is that in this case environmentalism and oil do mix. At AMSOIL, we hope our commitment to quality benefits you in even more important ways than just saving time and money; we hope it will benefit generations to come.”
AMSOIL President and CEO, A.J. Amatuzio
