Unbeatable wear protection and unbeatable fuel economy.
Who says it can't be done? "Most oil manufacturers use a quick shearing viscosity index improver that helps their oil pass the test by allowing its viscosity to drop," said the lab rep. "When the viscosity drops, intrafluid friction drops and fuel economy rises. But wear protection also drops. Of course, wear protection isn't a concern in the Sequence VI test. Fuel economy is the only concern AMSOIL insisted on using a shear stable viscosity index improver - it was, after all, part and parcel of the oil's formulation. After testing, the independent test facility changed its tune. "The AMSOIL 0W-30 had a fabulous EC-II pass in the Sequence VI," remarked the tester in an interoffice memo. In fact, it was the highest Sequence VI score ever recorded by the facility.
Field Results Supportive - Reports from the field indicate that Series 2000 consistently gives users a fuel economy increase, with increases varying between 4 and 40 percent. Many users also report their fuel economy continues to increase for an extended period after installation of Series 2000. For example, a user who reported an increase in mileage from 18 mpg to 21 also reported that his mileage increased to 23, then to 25 mpg with successive fuel fills. In fact, the sheer number of unsolicited reports of increased fuel economy suggest that Series 2000 makes a very real difference.
1992 Dodge Dakota Pickup - 18.23 mpg to 18.98 ...4.1%
1986 Buick Skyhawk - 35.4 mpg to 37.73 ...6.6%
1993 Ford Aerostar - 25 mpg to 27.2 mpg ...8.8%
1993 Chevy Suburban - 13 mpg to 15.32 mpg ...11.7%
1993 Mercury Villager - 18 mpg to 21 mpg ...16.7%
1993 Cadillac STS - 17.48 mpg to 24.47 mpg ...40.0%
1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme - 21 mpg to 30 mpg ...43%
All figures reported to AMSOIL by individual passenger car motorists driving privately owned stock vehicles on road under uncontrolled ambient conditions.
AMSOIL should save you enough per year in fuel savings to pay for all your vehicles lubrication needs. Save enough per year to keep your vehicle completely protected with AMSOIL- If you get an average of 20 miles per gallon and travel 15,000 miles per year you use 750 gallons of gas per year. At the present cost of unleaded gas ($1.35) in my area, you'll spend $1012.00 per year on fuel. If you can get a 2 mile per gallon increase (10%), your gas usage will decrease to 682 gallons or $920.00 per year. That's a savings of $92.00 per year! You can get your engine and transmission protected with AMSOIL for less. Even just a one mile per gallon increase would save $48.00 per year, which is enough to switch over your engine to AMSOIL for the year. So you see, just the fuel savings vs. regular oil will pay for your AMSOIL. The benefits you will see from AMSOIL will be longer engine life, better performance, less repairs, less downtime, less wear on the engine, your vehicle will stay newer for longer. You also save money in reduced oil changes.
No Compromise on Wear Protection - Reports from the field also consistently show the oil has outstanding friction reduction characteristics. Not only are users reporting fuel economy gains, they are also reporting their cars run quieter and more responsively. Some have also reported they've had to reduce their engine idle speed.
Friction, of course, is a wear mechanism. Series 2000's ability to reduce friction indicates an ability to also reduce the rate of engine wear. Indeed, Four Ball Wear Testing bears out the assumption. Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil shows up to two times better wear protection than other top selling oils do. Finally, the friction reducing ability of Series 2000 increases with time. That's the crucial difference between Series 2000 and conventional fuel efficient oils. Conventional fuel efficient oils combine a light viscosity base stock with a large volume of viscosity index improver chemistry. When the VI improver breaks down, as conventional ones do with use, the oil no longer supplies sufficient viscosity to prevent component contact during high temperature operations and wear occurs.
Not only does Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil incorporate shear resistant viscosity index improver chemistry for ideal temperature viscosity control, it also incorporates a unique wear preventative chemistry that actually lays down a protective shield on component surfaces. The plating action protects engines during startup, challenging operations - anything a driver can dish out. Compared to the hit and miss protection provided by conventional fuel efficient oils formulated with fragile viscosity index improvers... well, there really is no comparison
Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Applications- Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil is formulated for use in passenger cars and light trucks and makes a perfect replacement for 5W-30 and 10W-30 motor oils, including new vehicles under warranty. Users from all regions have reported success with the oil. However, as a 0W-30, it offers users in cold regions an added benefit in cold temperature starting and cold temperature engine protection.
Finally, Cale Yarborough Motorsports, the NASCAR team spearheaded by the legendary racer, uses AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil to qualify for all the races of the 1996 Winston Cup, the ultimate tour of the NASCAR circuit. That's pretty tough service for an oil. Good thing they use Series 2000!
AMSOIL should save you enough per year in fuel savings to pay for all your vehicles lubrication needs. Using the Best and saving money, now that makes sense!
