Another Win for AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants

A HOT ROD magazine dyno test proves that AMSOIL synthetic lubricants increase power, torque and fuel economy.

The advantages of synthetic lubricants are well established. The fact that most motor oil companies today offer a full-synthetic oil is evidence of what AMSOIL has long known: synthetic lubricants deliver the long-term protection and performance auto enthusiasts desire better than conventional oils.

Recently, our friends at HOT ROD magazine conducted a test that provided dramatic confirmation. They requested a variety of AMSOIL products to test in a 2006 5.7L Dodge* Charger*. The testing was done at the Pennsylvania College of Technology’s dyno laboratory. The Charger (previously run solely on conventional oil) was installed with these AMSOIL products:

  • Signature Series 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil
  • Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid
  • Severe Gear® 75W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube<
  • Slip Lock (Differential Additive)
  • Ea® Oil Filter

 

The results were amazing. A recently published HOT ROD article states, “With the AMSOIL products installed, the Charger burned five tanks of fuel to establish an estimate of fuel mileage. Our fuel mileage with the AMSOIL product increased by 0.9 mpg…and the performance numbers were up as well. Peak torque was up 2.6 lb-ft and peak horsepower was up 4.4 hp.” The article goes on to say that “AMSOIL products are far superior to mineral oils in nearly every quantifiable category.”

This testing illuminates the advantages of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants. Synthetics help increase performance and engine life due to their…

  • Ability to reduce energy lost to friction and maximize power and fuel economy
  • Excellent fi lm strength, which guards against wear in the toughest conditions
  • Superior low-temperature pour point, helping reduce wear at startup

 

Here, HOT ROD sums up the case for making the switch to AMSOIL synthetic lubricants: “If you plan on keeping your machine on the road for years well beyond the warranty period, a synthetic like AMSOIL will keep bearings, rings, bores, lifters, cam lobes, valve guides, bands, clutches, and pumps running like new well past normal rebuild intervals, and that means money in your pocket.”

From the Article as if I wrote it myself!

“So why not try synthetic oils in your Mopar? The initial cost is offset by extended service intervals and increased longevity of the engine components due to the uniform molecule structure, low-temperature pour points, superior stability of viscosity, better shear properties, and superior boundary layer protection. Protracted service intervals mean less disposal of waste oil, benefiting the environment. Finally, putting synthetics in your Mopar will benefit your wallet with better fuel economy, and you will have a few extra ponies under your right foot as a byproduct.”
