Gasoline Direct Injection

New CAFE standards specified by the EPA and NHTSA require improvements in fuel economy over the next decade.

To meet these requirements OEM’s are using several approaches. One of these is GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection).

GDI is different from normal injection in that the fuel is injected directly into the cylinder at it’s hottest point near the spark plug. Previous injection systems allow the fuel to go in through the intake valve with the air.

Direct Injection has been around for a while with diesel motors. Diesel fuel is more difficult to atomize. GDI engines are expensive to build. So this is why the delay.

GDI systems burn air/fuel at the rate 40:1 (Air/Fuel). Non-GDI systems 14.7:1. Thus, much less fuel is used. Cleaner emissions also result.

A downside to GDI is that the intake valves are not ‘washed’ with fuel to clean them up. Using Amsoil Performance Improver Fuel Treatment (API) is important as it contains the best detergents.

Stopping for oil changes and fuel is time lost.

Just think, the average consumer stops more than 50 times a year for fuel and 5 times a year for oil changes.

30% better fuel economy and Amsoil’s 25,000 mile oil change could reduce this from 55 stops to 36.

Amsoil Diesel Oil

Replacing popular conventional engine and driveline lubricants with AMSOIL synthetic lubricants in Class 8 diesel-fueled vehicles increases fuel mileage up to 8.2% according to the findings of an independent test facility.

In life we deal with our level of perception.

It’s a tricky business to say the least.

Our vehicles, cars and trucks, have acoustically shielded engine compartments.

It’s very hard to hear that the motor sounds better when you have switched to Amsoil.

In powersports the motors are exposed. You can actually hear the difference.

Whenever we wish to increase our level of perception we go to scientific instruments. 100′s of thousands of dollars worth of test equipment are used to test oil.

Amsoil publishes studies done by qualified engineering firms to help you understand the savings due to better oil.

For copies of these studies feel free to contact me.

If you are not using Amsoil you are loosing money.

Arctic Deep Freeze

Last year the arctic deep freeze nailed Russia and Europe real good.

This year it’s on our side of the planet. They are having a nice warm winter in Russia. The snow is too soft in Sochi.

A lot of the ice has fallen from the tree limbs and it looks like an ice-maker machine was accidentally left running all over the place. Sparkles in the sun.

Yeah, its pretty but I’ve had enough.

use Amsoil


Using cheap lubricants in the face of $2-$4/gallon fuel is a $1000/yr mistake.

This plays into the hands of huge multi-national oil companies.

Switch to Amsoil.

Get a better habit.
