This question comes up often since I am an Amsoil Dealer. So why is Amsoil better? From my personal experience and running multiple test it came down to just two factors. Friction and heat. We all know one causes the other, but why?
Friction within an engine only occurs when oil breaks down. Once this happens the oil is in a constant state of breaking down. The end results is excessive heat, which then cascades to one more problem. That problem is oil volatility or a more accurate description, oil consumption.
Amsoil solves this problem by correctly formulating high quality synthetic base stocks and the best additive packages available. When it comes down to why is Amsoil better it’s pretty simple; we will not put it in a bottle if we know we are going to finish second.
How do you make decisions to buy a certain product? Facts and/or test results off the internet? Recommendations from family or friends? In the case of choosing the best synthetic oil what would be the best way? I will give you a hint; test, test and test again.
Here’s how you determine why is Amsoil better. Fill your gas tank up, write down your mileage then run that tank down. Fill your tank again, this time write down how many gallons you pumped in. Now subtract the previous mileage you wrote down on your last fill up then divide the number of gallons into the miles you just drove on your last tank. Now you have your mpg. Note: Do not use a vehicles on board mpg computer unless you know how to reset them. These mpg figures are accumulative and you can’t get an accurate mpg comparison from two successive tanks.
Why is Amsoil better? You’re about to find out. The best way to convert over to Amsoil is to order the proper oil and filter for your vehicle. (we can help with that) Also, we recommend 1 bottle of engine flush plus one of Performance Improver (PI). This is a gas additive that will do wonders for your fuel mileage. It wouldn’t hurt to throw in a clean air filter too. Follow the instructions on the engine flush, install your Amsoil Synthetic Oil and filter.
All you do now is repeat the same mpg test you did before and compare your results. On your first comparison do NOT put the fuel additive in. On your second comparison tank add the PI and you should see another jump in your mpg.
If you saw an increase of 3,4 or even 5 mpg would you go back to your old oil? Probably not. You would be hard pressed to find anyone that tried Amsoil then went back to their old oil. Now you have all the tools you need to test Amsoil yourself so you no longer have to ask; why is Amsoil better.
