Efficiency & Solutions
Our mechanized society cannot function without lubricants.
The dilemma is that oil is both necessary for our life style
and potentially destructive to nature. Quite simply, we
must select innovative, efficient products that will help
solve our pollution problems.
The introduction of AMSOIL synthetic motor oil in 1972
set all new standards for motor oil quality. AMSOIL lubricants
are 100% synthetic. They are specially designed to protect
engine components, reduce emissions, last longer, reduce
fuel consumption and prevent environmental pollution. From
the beginning, AMSOIL synthetic motor oils have out performed
conventional petroleum motor oils on all counts.
AMSOIL synthetic motor oils resist chemical breakdown and
sludging to keep engines cleaner. They have been specially
designed not to oxidize, volatilize or shear back, resulting
in a motor oil that lasts longer than conventional petroleum
motor oils. While petroleum motor oil manufacturers recommend
oil changes every 3,000 miles, AMSOIL synthetic motor oils
protect engine components up to 35,000 miles or 1 year,
dramatically extending oil change intervals.
AMSOIL Prescription for
According to the U.S Department of Energy' Pollution Prevention
Requirements, the first step in revitalizing a cleaner nation
is pollutant source reduction. AMSOIL accomplishes this
by extending the interval between motor oil changes that
can reduce the source of motor oil pollution more than eleven
Consider this: in 1993 an estimated 189.5 million motorized
vehicles were on the road in the United States alone, and
an estimated 700 million motorized vehicles were in operation
throughout the world. If, by petroleum oil manufacturer's
recommendations, these vehicles have their oil changed every
3,000 miles on an average five-quart system, almost 1 billion
quarts of used oil will be generated each month.
So are we drowning in oil? It is estimated at present that
over 240 million gallons of oil are improperly discarded
annually. Dumping 240 million gallons of oil is nearly the
same as two Exxon Valdez spills each month.
How dangerous is used oil? Just one quart can produce a
two-acre oil slick. One gallon of oil can make one million
gallons of water too foul to drink and 35 ppm of oil will
kill fish. Improperly disposed used oil is dangerous.
Improperly dumped used oil seeps through landfills into
ground water, disrupts bacterial digestion in sewer treatment
plants and washes into lakes and harbors. At present, use
motor oil is the largest single source of oil pollution
in our nation's waterways. Certainly the first thing we
can do is not create so much used oil to begin with
and the United States Department of Energy seems to agree.

is reused for miscellaneous purposes.
Most automobile manufacturers recommend
oil drain intervals of 3,000 to 6,000 miles for petroleum
motor oils. AMSOIL recommends up to a 35,000 mile oil change
which is 5 to 11 times fewer oil changes. Just think about
the savings on the environment if, for example, the 135
million cars (excluding trucks, buses and taxis) in the
United States were equipped with AMSOIL motor oil. Assuming
an average service-life of 100,000 miles and an oil capacity
of 5 quarts each, 11.4 billion to 23.3 billion quarts of
used oil will be generated during a regular service lifetime
(with regular oil changes every 3,000 to 6,000 miles). If
you put 22.3 billion quarts of used oil into 55-gallon barrels
and loaded them onto semi-trucks, a line of trucks would
stretch end-to-end from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. and
back to Los Angeles.
To Say It Another
Way, AMSOIL Reduces Oil Use In The Crankcase by 80% to 90%!
A REAL solution -- not talk -- for those who are serious
about a "green solution."

For nearly three decades, AMSOIL Inc. has
been recognized as the leader in synthetic lubrication technology.
AMSOIL was the first to introduce a synthetic motor oil
qualified by the American Petroleum Institute, the first
to recommend 25,000-mile/1-year drain intervals, the first
to recommend 35,000-mile/1-year drain intervals, and the
first to implement a system for dramatically increasing
drain intervals with oil analysis. Decades of research,
laboratory analysis and millions of engine miles have kept
AMSOIL the leader in automotive applications for synthetic
lubrication. Although the results have paid off in maximizing
efficiency and minimizing waste, they are not conclusive.
AMSOIL is the leader in synthetics and with continued
research, analysis and product development, will remain
the industry's leader.
Looking Toward the Future
As our world strengthens its environmental policies and grapples
with pollution issues, the ecological wisdom of using synthetic
lubricants becomes obvious AMSOIL synthetic lubricants becomes
obvious. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils outlast regular petroleum-base
oils by as much as eleven times. 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. The combined use of AMSOIL
motor oil, air and oil filters and engine oil analysis has
now made one-fill, zero-waste lubrication a reality.
The superior lubricity of AMSOIL products means much less
friction, drag and wear on critical engine parts. The resulting
improvement in fuel efficiency and reduction of emission
levels contribute to the conservation of natural resources
and protection of the atmosphere. Additionally, AMSOIL has
made the technology of biodegradability a top research priority,
with encouraging recent successes.
AMSOIL INC. is determined to meet the challenge of the
lubrication industry's environmental responsibilities head
on. Our long-standing quality products lead the way to a
greener, healthier planet for the next generation.
