Beware, Amazon is trying to get into the synthetic oil business. A few points to bring up here. Ask yourself this; would you really trust Amazon to protect your cars engine? Last time I checked Amazon wasn’t in the synthetic oil business. So how did Amazon get their name on a bottle of oil? Most of you have heard of private labeling. This is where one company (Amazon) reaches out to several oil companies for a private label agreement. Typically the lowest bidder wins so how good do you really think this oil is?
Private labeling has been around for a long time. Some of the more well known companies that take advantage of this are; John Deere, Harley-Davidson, Ski-Doo, Echo, Stihl and many more. Most are adequate at best, but remember this, Harley-Davidson makes motorcycles not oil. Keep this in mind too, most oil companies that private label will not agree to private label their proprietary product. It is going to be a much cheaper formula as not to compete with their own product line.
Since I’ve been in the Amsoil business (1996) every major oil company has stepped up to the plate and started making better lubricants. Amsoil has also done the same with their entire line of motor oils both gas and diesel. Even though other oil manufacturers started making better oils Amsoil has still not been beat in any head to head comparison test. Amsoil’s unique distribution network is what enables them to invest in superior basestocks and additive packages that the big name brand oil companies simply can’t afford.
The big oil companies could very well produce the exact same oil Amsoil produces, but they have one thing working against them. The same quart of Amsoil that retails for $11.95 their’s would probably retail for close to $19.95/qt. Why? Because the major oil companies spend millions of dollars on TV commercials and sponsoring NASCAR drivers. There is only one way the Pennzoil and Mobil’s of the world can recoup their advertising dollars and that’s through the sale of the their products you see advertised on TV and plastered on race cars driving around in circles making left turns.
When selecting what oil to protect your engine the price of that oil should not matter, but the cost should. Amsoil may at first seem to be higher priced than other oils on the market, but there are three things to consider. First, you can become a preferred customer and save about $2.85/qt. (about 20%). Second, In most cases, depending on the size of your fuel tank, you should pick up about 25-40 more miles out of every tank of gas. Lastly, you can skip 2 or even 3 oil changes because Amsoil simply last longer.
