Large companies, small businesses,
and individuals are experiencing tremendous results
using synthetics. Many of the following reports
& testimonials are found in national magazines
- reinforcing the undeniable benefits and cost savings
of synthetic lubricants in countless applications.
Many are using AMSOIL synthetic lubes and special
409,000 MILES ON OIL
- 631,000 MILES ON TRUCK
Miles Without an Oil Change
AMSOIL Synthetic 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel
and Marine Oil this 1990 Mack E7-400
owned by Haywood Gray went 409,000
Miles Without an Oil Change !!
Haywood "Woody" Gray of Colonial Heights,
VA, owner/operator drove his 90' Mack 6 cylinder a
total of 631,000 miles. After break in (30K), he installed
AMSOIL 15W-40 synthetic oil in the engine, and installed
AMSOIL depth by-pass filtration system. "Woody"
changed his Mack filters every 20K miles, and his
AMSOIL by-pass filters every 40K miles, and sampled
the oil at every filter change. His first oil change
with AMSOIL was at 222K miles, because his oil sample
showed "fuel dilution" from a loose fuel
injector. He ran the same oil from 222k miles to 631K
miles w/o an oil change. His oil samples showed the
oil to be in satisfactory condition and "good
for continued use".
AMSOIL paid to have
the engine torn down for inspection on 12/30/96 at
the VA. Truck Center, Chester, VA. An independent
engine "rater" described the wear to the
parts with the word "traces". The engine
had only needed one valve adjustment, and that was
at 100K on a routine maintenance inspection, because
the valves were still overtight from manufacture--the
valves had to be loosened. The turbo was removed and
checked for wear-none-put back in engine. The truck
had the same u-joints, king pins and tie rods.
This is the second
Mack "Woody " has run AMSOIL. His 84"
V-8, ran 647K miles on 100K oil changes with similar
results. Talk about savings!!!
After testing synthetics for 12 years, RYDER elected
to install synthetics in transmissions and gear boxes
of all 69,000 of its trucks After three years of use,
RYDER extended drain intervals from 48,000 (depending
on size of truck) to the life of the vehicle on light
and medium duty trucks.
500,000 MILE DEMO WITH A PETERBILT:
Synthetics cost more to buy, true - but not in the
long run. Charlie Smallwood switched engine oil, gear
oil, transmission lube, and filtration to AMSOIL and
saved over $16,000! With long drain and analysis,
oil and filters cost about $1,500 less than petroleum.
Midvale Gold Country Club is delighted with synthetics.
They extend drain intervals three times petroleum,
use 1/4 to 1/8 as much oil as previously, and save
money overall with reduced down-time and longer engine
SPEAKS OF AMSOIL:
I was running the Pikes Peak Hill Climb (in 1976)
in a car equipped with a very special rear end that
gave me an edge over the other guys. The rear end
was fitted with some 1948 Ford parts which you just
couldn't buy anymore. They were getting harder and
harder to find, and here I was, destroying some of
them in one practice day!
Well, I knew
that had to stop soon, or I'd have to use a different
rear end and probably lose my competitive edge. I
called a friend who has a good engineering background
and I told him I was looking for a gear lube with
the best extreme pressure characteristics possible.
His immediate answer was AMSOIL.
I called the
company in Superior, WI and they put me in touch with
a local dealer. Between working with the dealer and
Al Amatuzio (CEO of AMSOIL), I learned some amazing
things about AMSOIL.
I receive products
from all over the world for testing and evaluation,
but when I put AMSOIL in the rear end, I had never
seen anything like it! I went from totally destroying
the rear end in one day, to using the one through
3 days of practice, a day of qualifications, a day
of racing and it was still good! Where I used to go
through one rear end a day, now I used the same one
the whole season and it was still like new! I was
amazed then, and I still am now.
FARMERS, FRANCIS & ROCK ORMISTON:
They have used AMSOIL in their fleet of tractors (four
large 4-wheel drive John Deere tractors from 200 to
400 HP) and five smaller tractors (90 to 200 HP) for
over 18 years. They change oil once a year. They stopped
tracking savings years ago, but know it is at least
50 cents on the dollar over petroleum, not counting
savings on downtime and extended equipment life. They
say they could not afford to switch back to petroleum,
even if it were given to them FREE.
GOLF COURSE, NC:
They have found that not only is the AMSOIL 100:1
2-Cycle Engine Oil less expensive to use, but with
it they have experienced improved performance and
less maintenance in their golf carts.
MINNESOTA POLICE DEPARTMENT:
by using AMSOIL products in the police cruisers, documented
a savings of 40% per mile.
FILES GRAIN ELEVATOR, AUSTRALIA:
They found that the use of AMSOIL grease reduced bearing
temperatures from "too hot to touch" to
"rest your hand on it". The bearings that
previously had to be replaced several times in ten
years, are still in service after five years with
SKI FIELD, NEW ZEALAND:
There Kassbohrer Groomers with 6V Mercedes Benz diesel
engines (from 170-240 HP) operate almost non-stop
in subzero temperature. With AMSOIL 15W-40 Marine
Oil, service intervals have been extended from 200
to 600 hours. They estimate a saving of $7,500 per
PRODUCE OF YELLOW-KNIFE, CANADA:
A 1986 Ford Cabover CLT-9000 Truck, powered by a 400
HP 3406B six cylinder Caterpillar engine logged over
420,000 miles with two oil changes of AMSOIL 15W-40
Marine Engine Oil. Normal run is a round trip of 2,400
miles, where daytime temperatures often exceed -50dF,
and the last 400 miles is rugged gravel terrain.
YORK TAXI FLEET:
In a pilot program, they found that AMSOIL Engine
Oil lasted 20 times longer than conventional oils.
Engine teardown also showed reduced wear!
They found they no longer have carbon build-up or
spark plug fouling in their chainsaws after switching
to AMSOIL 2-cycle Oil. A commercial cutter put 2500
hours on a saw with only one piston and cylinder change.
A tree service cut their 15 saw maintenance budget
from $3,000, to less than $1,000 per month, by using
AMSOIL 2-cycle Oil.
MEYERS IN SYRACUSE:
Switching to synthetic lubricants caused a reduction
in friction and reduced energy consumption of 5%.
This resulted in a projected annual savings of $70,000.
LUBE IN POWER PLANTS:
A Co-op Power Association of North Dakota reported
problems of high temperature and bearing wear until
synthetic lubricants were installed. Result: "bearing
failures were eliminated: oil change intervals were
increased to six months from previous changes every
EXCAVATING, INC., OHIO:
After they switched to AMSOIL products, they experienced
smoother starting and operating, no tune ups, cooler
operation, and extended equipment life, making it
easier to get the job done and meet contract requirements,
regardless of weather conditions. After 43 years in
the excavating business, the owner laments "wish
I could have started sooner (with AMSOIL)".
SALT CO., NEW YORK:
Because they were able to extend drain periods in
difficult places (conveyor belts in their mines) to
once every five years, "the reduced labor costs
offset by several times the higher costs of synthetic
GEAR MANUFACTURER, SAFE-GUARD POWER TECH:
They were able to increase the overall thermal rating
of their worm gears by 9 to 15% with synthetic oil
allowing their customers to use smaller, less expensive
units. On farm tractors, the input rating of spur
gear reducers increased 150% to 125 HP.
They used synthetic grease on 8,000 electric motors
and found bearing failures dropped from a typical
200 a year to only five!!! Re-greasing intervals were
extended by two times for all motors but those in
the most severe environments.
Their fleet manager reported savings with synthetics:
"On our trucks we used to give four or five shots;
now we use only one or two for each fitting. The cost
for replacing shackles dropped from $3,000 to $1,000
over the year and we're extending our greasing intervals
from two weeks to six weeks."
BUS CO., MILTON, WI:
Their fleet of school buses must stay on the road
to be cost effective to operate. By using AMSOIL Synthetic
Grease, Gear Lubes, and Motor Oil, they have cut maintenance
cost by 30.5%. Oil changes have been extended to 50,000
miles with filter changes at 8,000 miles (using oil
analysis). Winter operations are trouble free with
easy starts and no warm-ups needed thus saving fuel,
labor and engine wear.
ROCKWELL & DANA EXTEND WARRANTY & DRAIN INTERVAL:
These major drive train component manufacturers have
extended gear lube drain intervals from 100K miles
(with petroleum) to 500K miles after switching to
75W-90 synthetic gear lubes. They also have extended
warranty from 500K mile to 750K miles as long as synthetic
gear lubes are used.
Ford Motor Co. requires the use of synthetic transmission
fluid in all 5 speed transmissions used in the diesel
pickups since 2/2/94.
AND CADILLAC ENGINES MUST USE SYNTHETIC:
Corvettes and Cadillac's with the Northstar engines
require the use of synthetic motor oil, or warranty
will be voided.
LEADS THE WAY:
Virginia Dept. Of Mines, Minerals, & Energy published
a manual recommending many energy savings strategies
the state agencies could use to cut costs, and save
energy. In Section 3, Transportation, page 110, Strategy
II.B, they recommended that the agencies select a
portion of their fleet, change to a synthetic oil
and evaluate the results i.e.; less engine wear, fewer
engine deposits, less frequent oil changes, lower
maintenance, and a 3-5% MPG increase.
TIRE AMERICA: John Small
"I credit AMSOIL Compressor Oil with savings
in five areas. By helping our compressors run 20-40d
F cooler., we no longer need fans and special ventilation
systems for heat reduction. With these cooler operating
temperatures and the high quality fluid, our valves
don't carbon up, so we don't have to replace them
as often. Our compressors draw 10 percent less amperage
with AMSOIL. Our oil consumption is way down. And
we've gone from three month to four year compressor
oil drain intervals. Multiply those savings times
thousands of compressors and you can see why we're
installing AMSOIL nationwide

a truck for 700,000 miles with the same injectors.
At 700,000 miles, they trade vehicles.
By using AMSOIL Synthetic Oil, Petro Canada extended
the drain interval on the Waukasha engine (stationary
pump on the oil pipeline). With mineral oil lubricants,
oil change was required very 750 hours (one change
per month). With AMSOIL, the engine has been running
for 26 months (over 19,000 hours) with no oil change.
By using AMSOIL Grease, Oil Filters, and Synthetic

COURIER SERVICE, INC., NEW YORK:
The owner reports a savings of $500 per vehicle per
year by using AMSOIL Engine Oils, Air and Oil Filters,
AMSOIL Automatic Transmission Fluid, and AMSOIL Gear

and increased fuel economy.
CARRIERS CORPORATION, TEXAS:
Semis were installed with AMSOIL Lubricants, bumper
to bumper, AMSOIL 15W-40 was used in the engines,
and AMSOIL 85W-140 Gear Lube was installed in the
transmissions and rear end.. Oil analysis determined
the AMSOIL 15W-40 and the 85W-140 were still running
after 200,000 miles and the engines had minimal wear
while the rear ends and transmissions operated like
GOLF COURSE, CHESTER, VA:
Dennis Daugherty, Superintendent, used to replace
the 5 HP engine on his greens mower once a year. The
severe use and constant high heat would finish the
engine. In 1987, Dennis switched to AMSOIL 10W-30
100% Synthetic Motor Oil and has not replaced an engine
since. Dennis says, "if you gave me the petroleum
oil and the engines for nothing I wouldn't switch
REACHES 513K MILES ON 78' OLDS
Bill Anderson, teaches automotive mechanics at Hermitage
Technical Center, a vocational high school in Henrico,
Virginia. When he used petroleum motor oil in his
1978 Oldsmobile, Bill faithfully changed oil every
1,500 to 2,000 miles. After watching an AMSOIL lubrication
and filtration seminar in 1985, Bill decided to switch
the Olds to AMSOIL 10W-40 and install an AMSOIL Engine
By following AMSOIL's
recommendations, Bill currently has 513,000 miles
on his Olds, and the engine has had only routine maintenance.
Bill drives the car to work every day and on regular
business trips, and he tells his friends and colleagues
about the advantages of AMSOIL over petroleum motor
oil. Bill recently called to tell me that his 80'
Buick (that has had AMSOIL 10W-40 since 32,000 miles)
developed a leak in the oil pan. He took off the pan
and removed a main bearing to replace the main seal.
Bill was astonished to find the bearing in almost
new condition. By the way, the car has just over 300,000
miles on the original engine. Of course Bill uses
AMSOIL in his boat, lawnmower and other personal equipment.
BIKER MAGAZINE, JUNE, 1989
BY MR. WES JACKSON:
My own two bikes were used (for the test) as they
were the easiest to keep track of. One was a 1982
Harley FLT with 40,000 miles. The other, a 1983 Yamaha
750 Maxim, w/ 30,000 km of abuse and neglect.
With the change to
synthetic oil, there were a few immediately noticeable
results. First, the starter spins the engine more
easily and the engine starts quicker. The oil gauge
showed slightly lower after warm-up, dropping from
30 to 18 lbs. at highway speed. This indicates a higher
flow rate, which is very desirable. The engine feels
stronger and more willing. This same effect has been
reported by others who changed to AMSOIL, but there
is no way to measure it. Oil consumption settled down
at about 2,500 miles per liter.
About 9,000 miles after
changing to new AMSOIL, I was on my way home from
Victoria, BC when my oil pressure gauge dropped to
zero. I stopped and checked for any unusual noises
or leaks, but since the oil pressure idiot light hadn't
come on, I figured it was a bum gauge. I carried on
home... about 60 miles. When I got home I discovered
that the wire had come off the oil light switch and
I really didn't have any oil pressure. The engine
had run normally all the way, with no strange sounds
or burning smells, but I was quite concerned about
the internal damage.
Opening up the engine
showed that the oil pump had indeed packed it in,
shearing the half-moon key on the drive shaft...So,
I really had driven 60 miles with no oil circulation
at all. The engine showed no bad effects of its experience.
The bottom end was still tight and the cylinder showed
almost no wear at 32,000 miles. I believe that with
any other type of oil, the engine would have seized
In the little Yamaha,
I found pretty much the same results subjectively,
but have no measurements to offer. After running for
a year on AMSOIL, I had only put 7,000 km. I felt
that the AMSOIL was just too expensive for that little
use, so I changed to another brand. Right away, I
noticed a big difference. The engine required more
turns of cranking before firing up, starting and stopping
several times before it would keep running. When driving
around town, the bike felt sluggish and down on power.
I put up with this for a few days, then changed back
to AMSOIL 10W-40. Immediately it was back to instant
starts and that old eager-to-go feeling. I'm going
to use AMSOIL in it even if it is more expensive.
I wouldn't go back to the old stuff if it were given
to me free."

"AMSOIL Rust Preventative enhanced our business
image. Our previous rust preventative just wasn't
doing the job and the appearance of our work was suffering.
With AMSOIL, there were no more rust spots on our
jobs. To top it off, AMSOIL costs less than the old
product and has a longer shelf life. It's a great
TURBO SETS RECORD WITH AMSOIL!
Gene Deputay, President of TEXAS TURBO ENGINEERING,
Inc., designs and builds racing engines. He is also
an excellent drag racer. For the extra edge he needs
to win, Gene uses AMSOIL synthetic lubricants in all
his race cars.
"I have a 1989
Mustang GT with a TEXAS TURBO prepared turbocharged
5 liter engine. The car has set records all over the
United States at various drag strips, and it runs
a quarter mile time consistently around 10.43 seconds
at 130 MPH through the mufflers", Gene said.
Gene added, "I
use AMSOIL in both the rear end and the engine due
to its lubricating properties that reduce friction,
which translates into horsepower. The other reason
I use AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants is because of its
higher resistance to "coking". I have to
make hard runs, where the turbine wheel approaches
around 1,700 deg. F at 15 psi of boost. I don't have
to leave the car running as long to circulate oil
to cool the shaft since the coking point is higher.
This means the engine has a longer cool down period
for the next run."
The Mustang GT is used
for street driving, as the power seats, the door locks,
electric windows and stereo system are still intact.
A real crowd pleaser, Gene's car has been in several
magazines, including "Hot Rod". However,
to keep the Mustang GT running at its competitive
peak, Gene relies on AMSOIL Lubricants.
RACER WINS PACIFIC COAST CHAMPIONSHIP
WITH AMSOIL ON BOARD!
It almost didn't happen
because few people believed that one person could
dominate a track so convincingly. But Mike Benzon,
sponsored by California AMSOIL Dealers Charles and
Peri Sutherland, dominated a race where all the cars
are equal - except in motor oil.
A case may be
made for being too good. Other racers were considering
a protest where Mike would be forced to tear down
his engine. But after consulting an expert, the other
racers were convinced no foul play was involved. (They
would have had to pay for the cost of the tear down
had no tampering had been found).
Mike's car was on the
front cover of the October 1990 "Wheel's"
magazine and broke an SCCA track record. If he finishes
9th or better in his next race, he is the 1990 Gran
Champion. Mike donates his winnings to the American
CONSUMPTION PROBLEM STOPPED
In the fall of 86' we inherited a 79' Ford Fairmont
with a 302 V-8 engine and 75,000 miles. We were the
third owners and had no real knowledge as to how the
car was cared for, or maintained. It was using a qt.
or so every two weeks. I shied away from changing
over to AMSOIL because of the consumption problem,
as the car was used as a spare vehicle mainly.
After a year (and 10,00
miles) I decided to go with AMSOIL as an experiment,
with the intentions of changing back to petroleum
oil if the consumption didn't drop significantly.
This was the fall of 87' and the car had reached 85K
miles. I flushed the engine with AMSOIL Engine Flush,
installed AMSOIL 100% 10W-40, oil filter, and an AMSOIL
Air Filter. In the following year I put on an additional
10,000 miles, while changing just the oil filter several
Oil consumption dropped
from 1 quart every two weeks-- to two quarts in one
In the fall of 88'
I flushed the engine again, and changed the oil and
filter. I've driven 13,000 miles since then (98,000
miles total), changed the filter twice and have added
less than one quart, except for filter make up oil.
Of course the engine runs cooler, quieter, peppier,
smoother and with better mileage. To have an engine
go from one quart every two weeks to less than one
quart a year is unbelievable----but that's AMSOIL
kind of GREASE!
Coming out of church one Sunday, Jim Koontz., Hopewell,
VA stopped me and said he had a great AMSOIL story
Jim was coming back
from a job on the interstate about 50 miles from home
in rush hour traffic. He was towing a rented portable
cement mixer with the company pick-up, when a wheel
bearing on the cement mixer started acting up. Jim
pulled into the breakdown lane and surveyed his problem.
Jim pulled the wheel and found that the bearings were
chewed up. Stranded, 5:00 PM, he knew he would have
a problem getting to someplace that had the bearings.
Having had experience with AMSOIL, and understanding
its phenomenal lubricating abilities, he cleaned the
spindle of the debri and coated it with a liberal
amount of AMSOIL Multi-Purpose Grease. He put the
wheel back, without the bearings, replaced the locking
nut and towed the cement mixer the 50 miles home with
out any problem or damage to the spindle.
This company has over one hundred vehicles, mostly
4-wheel drive Toyota pickups. They used to use Kendall
50W motor oil and changed it every 3,000 miles. For
the last two years, they have used nothing but AMSOIL
20W-50 Racing Oil and changed it every 15,000 miles.
When I initially went
to them, I asked them what they would like AMSOIL
to do for them. They felt that if AMSOIL would allow
them to stretch the oil changes out to about 7,000
miles they would be happy. Well, through oil analysis,
we proved that they could go over 15,000 miles and
still have some cushion.
Now, after a couple
of years they wonder how they ever got along without
AMSOIL. This company treats lakes and water retention
ponds, throughout the state of Florida. AMSOIL is
used in every possible application for their equipment.
The AMSOIL Air Filter cost less than what they were
paying for throw away filters.

TOW SERVICES - HAMPTON ROADS,VA
(Excerpts from newsletter on AMSOIL)
folder concerns the synthetic oil system we mentioned
last time. We said we wanted to run it for a while
in the towboat before we recommend it to y'all. Frankly,
I'm sold! Bill Stancil of Mr. Bill's AMSOIL Center
showed up one day and helped me install the oil and
dual filter set-up on the engine. I had made the decision
to try it after an oil analysis told me I was experiencing
above normal bearing wear.
The first thing
I noticed was that the engine got much quieter. The
metal to metal noise level was severely reduced. When
I called Bill to tell him about this, he stopped me
mid-sentence with, 'Sounds like a gas engine, doesn't
it?" Apparently he's heard this before. I asked
him when I should be changing the new oil. He said,
"Oh, I guess we should take a sample to see what
it looks like in about 300 hours or so.' Three hundred
hours??? I've been changing every 100 hours! After
I told him, he said "OK if it makes you feel
better go ahead, take a sample every 100 hours.' You
betcha - at least! At 100 hours I did just exactly
that and I was waiting at the box when the mailman
showed up with the test results. Believe it or not,
bearing wear had fallen almost to zip! That type of
performance seems to be routine. The people I talked
to were getting 50% to 200% more service life out
of their diesels. The Sea Tow member I spied one day
with an AMSOIL sticker on the windshield of his boat
told me he was getting 400 or more rpm out of his
gas I.O. I have a copy of the test results of oil
that has been a truck engine for 200,000 miles. It
reads, 'Test results indicated no corrective action
required.' Loosely translated that means you don't
gotta fix the motor and you don't gotta change the
oil, neither. At 200,000 miles! If you decide to go
this route, spend the extra nickel and get a dual
filter set-up. Between the oil, the dual filters and
oil analysis, your engine could still be running when
your boat is old enough to be a museum piece."
Tim Samko, owner of M & M Services, Chester, VA,
(a warehouse complex) analyzed the oil in his Toyota
forklift after thirty seven months of service without
an oil change. Tim is using (AME) 15W-40 AMSOIL Marine
Oil. Tim was nervous because he really didn't intend
to run the oil this long. To Tim's relief the sample
came back and said the oil was still good even after
Plant Measures 4 AMP Savings!!!
They decided to try some AMSOIL Industrial ISO 220
Gear Lube in one of the gear boxes on a cooling tower
fan drive. They measured the amperage draw prior to
adding the AMSOIL, and took a measurement after switching.
They found a 4 AMP reduction in electrical use. This
is significant. When asked what this means, they said
that they can now run the fans at higher Rpm's and
cool more effectively. Of course they will be able
to leave the oil in the gear boxes several times longer
which will give additional savings.
MOTORHOME TO AMSOIL !
Bobby Grove, Prince George, VA purchased a used 1985
34' Pace Arrow Motor Home from a friend of his. The
vehicle had 45,000 miles and had been given reasonable
care. The engine was a Chevy 454 V-8 with a generator
and two roof top AC units. His friend explained to
Bobby that the mileage was not the best and he consistently
got @ 5MPG regardless of driving conditions.
The first thing Bobby
did was tune it up and in the process found a broken
plug wire. He then took a 150 mile trip and got 6.1
MPG. The RV was then converted over to AMSOIL completely.
He put 0W-30 in the engine, 75W-90 in the differential,
repacked the wheel bearings, changed the ATF in his
automatic, and added PI to his fuel tank.
Bobby then made the
same 150 mile trip and calculated his mileage and
to his delight he got 7.9 MPG. A few weeks later he
took a trip up to a campground in western VA., and
this involved going over the Blue Ridge Mountains.
When he got to the campground he filled up and calculated
his mileage and to his amazement got 9.9 MPG. His
next trip was to Virginia Beach, VA, a 200 mile round
trip on level terrain, running both AC's the whole
time. He then filled the tank and came up with mileage
of 10.2 MPG. Bobby is a long time user of AMSOIL,
knew the RV would do a lot better but never anticipated
these kinds of results.
This is not the end,
the RV had been stored in an open shed for over ten
years and the outside had never been polished and
was dull and badly streaked. Bobby worked for several
days, using a variety of cleaners and polishes, only
doing about ½ of one side. Bobby came by and
asked if AMSOIL had anything to clean the outside
of the RV. I suggested the AMSOIL Miracle Wash, not
knowing if the surface was just too bad to be helped.
We were both shocked at how well and easy the Miracle
Wash cleaned the RV. Bobby went home and completed
the rest of the RV in few hours. Bobby also found
out that AMSOILS' Brite Side Tire cleaner worked like
a "miracle" on his awning that was badly
streaked with mildew.
Home: "Noticeable Difference"
A Crofton, MD customer wrote, "AMSOIL has made
a noticeable difference in the performance of my converted
MCI Greyhound motor coach.
"My coach is now
33 years old. I switched over to AMSOIL about four
years ago after having owned and driven this rig for
about five years. At the time of the switchover the
engine, a Detroit 8V-71, had about 300,000 miles on
it and had been serviced with regular petroleum products.
"I must tell you
I am a skeptic, but one who is willing to give anything
a reasonable try. It didn't take long for me to realize
that this was one of the more worthwhile trial runs
in my life. The most noticeable immediate changes
were that the engine ran quieter, was revving more
freely and ran slightly cooler. It felt as though
it had wind. A Dual By-Pass filter system was added,
and the transmission, differential and cooling fan
gear box were also changed to the AMSOIL magic, with
similar noticeable smoothing and quieting effects.
"Well, when I'm
in, I go all the way, and I began to add one can each
of Cetane Boost and Diesel Fuel Additive Concentrate
to every tank of diesel fuel. This complete AMSOIL
treatment soundly impressed me.
"Finally I returned
home from Europe after three months, and the motor
home had been standing idle. It was 5:30 in the evening
and the temperature was 20d F. when I started the
rig. Incredibly, the engine whizzed around almost
like it would have in summer, and it took less then
five seconds of cranking for it to spring to life.
It began to run smoothly almost immediately. After
about 15 seconds the white smoke cleared. This is
truly remarkable when one considers how when the temperature
got anywhere in the 30s, I always had to use an ether
starter fluid on this engine so as not to have to

manufacturing such a fine line of products."
$500 Per Vehicle Per Year
All-Day Courier Service Inc. is located in Westbury,
NY. It serves the Tri-State area of New York City,
New Jersey, and Connecticut with twenty delivery vehicles.
Owner and President,
James Stalters recently reported a savings of $500
per vehicle per year to AMSOIL Direct Jobber Matt
Konig. The application of a Spin-On By-Pass Oil Filter,
10W-30 100% Synthetic Motor Oil, AMSOIL Two-Stage
Air Filter, AMSOIL Automatic Transmission Fluid, and
75W-90 Gear Lube have significantly reduced downtime,
and increased fuel economy. Each vehicle travels 200+
miles per day.
"It was a horrendous
task just trying to schedule oil changes every 2-3
weeks. Minor break-downs were constantly upsetting
our plans," states Mr. Stalters. "Downtime
has been reduced approximately 80% on all vehicles
and gas mileage has increased an average of 2 mpg.
We don't do full oil changes any more, we lust change
the Spin-On By-Pass and Full Flow Filters every three
months. What a savings!
"In this fast-paced
business, having your vehicles on the road instead
of in the repair shop greatly increases our service
to the public. Reliability and performance in our
equipment is the bottom line for an efficient and
profitable service and AMSOIL helps us to succeed!"
Dry Engine - No Damage
Alaska: Before moving to Alaska, Tom Murphy converted
his engine, transmission, rear-end and wheel bearings
to AMSOIL lubricants. While driving the 22 miles from
Eielson Air Force Base to Fairbanks his main crankshaft
"I didn't discover
the problem until I shut the engine off in Fairbanks,"
said Murphy. "The oil pump had done its job,
leaving my engine bone dry. Amazingly the engine still
ran fine, and when I brought the car to the shop,
my mechanic couldn't find any damage. My purchase
of AMSOIL products saved me well over $2,000 in repairs."
Years - No Replacements
New Hampshire: Gregory Berry has been using AMSOIL
products for about the last ten years.
Said Berry" "I haven't replaced any greasable
parts since switching to AMSOIL lubricants ten years
ago Wheel bearings on vehicles and trailers spin freely
without heat buildup. I installed AMSOIL Multi-Purpose
Grease in the chassis of my 1930 Ford. I've owned
this car since 1964 and know how the car drives. After
installing AMSOIL Multipurpose Grease, it felt like
I had installed power steering. Again..... It's amazing.
of Perkins M-2 Uses AMSOIL
$125,000 Exotic Car Uses AMSOIL Synthetic Oil
Michael Perkins, founder
of Perkins Engineering, Inc., of Austin, Texas, has
recently finished the prototype of the Perkins M-2
of "Texas Exotic" sports car. The prototype
is lubricated entirely with AMSOIL Lubricants.
The Perkins M-2 weighs
approximately 2,200 lbs. and has a five-speed transmission.
It has an SHO V-6 engine, with four cams, 24 valves,
and either 245 or 300 horsepower, depending on the
configuration. To keep this expensive equipment in
top running condition, Michael decided that the Perkins
M-2 would include AMSOIL Lubricants.
"No question in the minds of people in the know
that synthetic lubricants are today's answer to improved
drive train protection, improved performance, reduced
maintenance, and less pollution. AMSOIL is an obvious
leader in the industry!"
The Perkins M-2, with
the proposed retail price of $125,000, is an exotic
car designed for successful people who, generally,
are over 6 feet tall.
Michael Perkins is
living his dream by designing and building the Perkins
M-2, and AMSOIL is grateful in helping him make his
dream into a reality.
is proud to offer the M-2 to America and also proud
to include AMSOIL advanced product technology as part
of this automobile's original equipment," Perkins
14 to 17 MPG!
The following was received 1/4/99 by e-mail from Jeff
Twarog of Connecticut.
Here's another one: A good friend owns 2 Jeep Grand
Cherokee's; one is a 95 and one is a 97. He put10w-30
synthetic in his 95 and he says it starts quicker
in the cold, idles smoother, and accelerates quicker
than the wife's 97. Both have the 318 engines. His
mileage given on his computer reads 17 up from the
14 he was getting over the same route driven. I found
that quite interesting. He has not yet had the chance
to change the gear oils.
Business Doing Great With AMSOIL!
ABC Rental is a great business that rents all kinds
of equipment to people in the Minneapolis-St. Paul
area, according to AMSOIL Dealer LeVerne Laurvick.
They are currently using AMSOIL in diesel equipment
and 1OW-30 100% Synthetic Motor Oil and Two-Stage
Air Filters in their cars and trucks. Additionally,
ABC uses the By-Pass Filters. in their large cement
AMSOIL Products are
ideal in these situations where companies need high
performance and protection to combat frequent abuse!
I purchased a 1981
half-ton Ford truck with a 351 engine in August 1994.
This truck was used for heavy ranch work for about
three years. Having previously been sold on synthetic
oil, I purchased AMSOIL from Reg Perras and put it
in this truck in 1996.
In April 1997 I put
a load of stock feed weighing one ton in the truck.
It was to be delivered from Camrose to a ranch 12
miles from my home, approximately 40 miles in all.
I was not aware that my radiator had sprung a. leak.
About 10 miles from the ranch I realized the engine
was severely overheated to the point that the engine
was pinging. I shut it off thinking the engine was
probably shot. After 30 minutes to cool it down I
started it up again with no water or antifreeze and
drove the rest of the way to the ranch. After allowing
the engine to cool completely and believing it was
finished I filled it with water and drove home. It
took about four gallons so it had to have been dry.
To my surprise it seemed
the engine had suffered no damage and the AMSOIL synthetic
motor oil still looked clear and not bubbled. I am
still driving the same truck. The engine sounds good
and it uses basically no oil.
I have to attribute this engine miracle to the use
of AMSOIL and will continue to use this product in
our vehicles with confidence.
AMSOIL + John Deere, Mack, & Ford Powerstroke!
"Just a note to let you
know that our harvesting business is much easier since
switching to AMSOIL.
use AMSOIL Synthetic 15w-40 Motor Oil in our three
new John Deere 9600 combines, our five Mack class
8 hauling trucks, my '97 Ford I/H Powerstroke and
several smaller machines. We put an average of 10,000
to 12,000 miles on these trucks per year. Our combines
run about 600 to 700 hours.
simply change the oil in our combines once a year
and the oil filters at 200 hours. AMSOIL gives them
the best protection while allowing them to start easier,
run cooler and get the best fuel efficiency possible.
know AMSOIL costs more at first, but if you put a
pencil to it, it's really less expensive than regular
oil. Anyone could save money using AMSOIL."
