OIL LESSON #1

It costs $1 to get a barrel of oil out of the ground in the Middle East.

The cost in the USA is $20-$50/barrel.

Thus Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries have dominated world oil production and pricing for many years.

As might be expected by this time, they have a substantial stake in the ownership of various large oil companies. These companies in turn own most of the companies that make lubricants. Do yourself a favor and buy American.

GDI

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. 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.

LUBRICITY

Some are looking for more torque.

Others, oil that will go 25,000 miles/1 year.

Longer lasting engines are sought by some.

Some want better fuel economy.

Better Lubricity brings with it all of these at the same time.

IF YOU ARE NOT USING AMSOIL YOU ARE LOSING MONEY.

TIME

Repeatedly 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.

$1000


Let’s consider a few facts:

The average consumer keeps a new vehicle 10.25 years. They spend $3278.00 in fuel per year. 93% use conventional oil.

Extended oil changes can save $100.00 per year.

If they get a 30% improvement in fuel economy by converting the whole drive-train and doing the other things mentioned in my ‘Fuel Economy Cheat Sheet’ than the total savings from Amsoil exceed $1000 per year.

If we factor in savings from longer lasting engines and transmissions at a conservative $300 each year, we see that savings greatly exceed $1000/Yr.

Amsoil saves you money.

Stopping fewer times for oil changes and gas fill-ups is also a huge time saver.

Perception

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.
