As a jet fighter squadron commander LIEUTENANT COLONEL ALBERT J. AMATUZIO had ample opportunity to witness synthetic lubricants in action. These oils are used exclusively in jet engines because of three extraordinary performance characteristics: an ability to reduce friction and wear on engine components, an ability to function dependably at severe temperature extremes and an ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemical breakdown.
Recognizing that these same benefits would prove invaluable in combustion engines, Al Amatuzio formulated the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet API service requirements for automobile engines. The new lubricant performed like no other before it. When the first can of AMSOIL 10W-40 appeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of an entire industry. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have expanded the boundaries of lubrication science and redefined the performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines.
AMSOIL INC. was founded on Al Amatuzio’s desire for technical innovation, his commitment to high quality and his belief that consumers would respond to a superior product. The company has remained true to these ideals; its history is a checklist of revolutionary products that have withstood the tests of time. As the pioneer corporation in the field of synthetic lubrication, AMSOIL sees its Commitment to Excellence as a historical responsibility, and A.J. Amatuzio’s energy and vision continue to drive the company forward. ...inspired by aerospace technology
A Commitment to Excellence
As a jet fighter squadron commander Lieutenant Colonel Albert J. Amatuzio had ample opportunity to witness synthetic lubricants in action. These oils are used exclusively in jet engines because of three extraordinary performance characteristics: an ability to reduce friction and wear on engine components, an ability to function dependably at severe temperature extremes and an ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemical breakdown.
Recognizing that these same benefits would prove invaluable in combustion engines, Amatuzio began conducting serious research in 1963. By 1966 he had formulated a synthetic motor oil and put it to use in vehicles in northern Minnesota. Throughout the late '60s Amatuzio continued his research and development and sold commercially available synthetic oils under a variety of names. In 1970 he incorporated his own name into a commercially sold product called AMMOIL. In 1971 this product name was changed to AMZOIL and it continued to be sold commercially. The true milestone came in 1972 when AMZOIL became the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute criteria. The new lubricant performed like no other before it. When the first can appeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of an entire industry. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have expanded the boundaries of lubrication science and redefined the performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines.
Know the Facts - AMSOIL Saves You Money!
AMSOIL extended drain intervals means fewer oil changes, long term savings and convenience. Even if you drive only 12,000 miles per year, the cost for AMSOIL motor oil is less than you pay for petroleum oil now! And you still get better wear protection, lower engine temperatures, improved fuel efficiency and easier cold-weather starts. All of these benefits add up to reduced operating costs and longer engine life. Change your oil and filter today and in 12 months change the oil and filter again. That's it! What could be more convenient and good for your vehicle, too
Improved Fuel Economy
Better Fuel Economy
Fuel economy is becoming more important with each passing year. Gas and diesel prices keep rising, putting a major strain on businesses that rely on vehicles and heavy equipment in their daily operations. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants improve fuel economy by allowing moving parts to move more freely, using less energy and creating less friction than when conventional lubricants are used.
The use of AMSOIL synthetic motor oil, gear lubes and transmission fluids can have a profound impact on fuel economy. Industry tests demonstrate an average conservative decrease in fuel consumption by two to five percent by switching to synthetic lubricants. Many AMSOIL customers report even larger gains in fuel economy.
My personal testimony
My personal testimony starts back as a college student who didn't have the luxury of having parents who gave me financial assistance when ever I wanted it. I had to work for everything I ever got. We all know that college is expensive and very costly. Even the smallest thing can require a serious decision based entirely on finances. I was at a local car show (being a classic car enthusiast) and met the local dealer for Amsoil. Having just received my military bonus, being young and impulsive, I bought enough oil to service my car. Grant you, I was young and dumb but, still, that is how I started using amsoil. I punished my 1979 Chrysler Cordaba to say the least. Excessive Milage was an understatement. I drove every where at an excessive speed. Looking back I honestly wonder how I am possibly still alive. Never the less, I pushed that car well over 200,000 miles before the Maine winters got the best of her. The only breakdown that occurred in the ENTIRE TIME that I used Amsoil was when I "bottomed out" at over 110mph! What happened? I hit the pavement so hard that the distributor shaft snapped! I replaced the distributor with one out of the junk yard and drove that car until it wouldn't pass the State Inspection due to rust. Everything that the dealer claimed the Oil would do, it did.
I now use Amsoil Products in every thing I own. My wife and I like to ride our Harley Davidson motorcycles as much as possible. The Amsoil 20W50 has proven to be without a doubt the best performing lubricant available. My Harley (nicknamed Medusa), runs a full 30 degrees cooler in the North Carolina sun. The engine cools down so much faster when stuck in stop and go traffic compared to the leading competitor oil out there (I am currently documenting this). Sally (my wifes Harley Fatboy), just runs without any issues to date. To combat the ETHANOL ISSUE, I use the QuickShot that Amsoil offers. I highly recommend if you ride,always keep some QuickShot in your saddlebags. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
