Emerging Technologies Will Improve
Fuel Economy and Challenge Lubricants
Products Can Help Avoid Expensive Repairs in This Evolving
Most of you have
heard about the changes in the Corporate Average Fuel Economy
(CAFE) standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) for cars and light trucks. The calculation for CAFE
is somewhat complex, but according to the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the projected actual
combined CAFE requirements for 2013 model-year vehicles will
be 25.7 mpg. This is in contrast to the highly publicized
improvement phases proposed over the next 12 years. The NHTSA
projects the first phase, which covers 2017-2021, will result
in a CAFE standard of 40.3-41.0 mpg. The second phase, which
was recently announced, covers standards for 2022-2025 vehicle
years with a projected CAFE of 48.7-49.7 mpg.
These changes are
basically doubling fuel efficiency requirements over the next
12 years and forcing vehicle manufacturers to make fundamental
changes in vehicle design to meet the standards. Everything
is on the table, including incentives for "game-changing"
technologies, like hybridization for full-size pickup trucks.
Fully electric and hybrid vehicles will become a bigger part
of manufacturers' offerings. These fundamental changes in
powertrain technology will have a bigger footprint in future
years. The really big changes in engine design already in
play include gasoline direct injection, turbocharging, variable
valve timing, partial engine shutdown, full engine shutdown
and increased use of diesel-fueled engines in passenger cars.
is changing quickly also. Four-speed automatic transmissions
are now dinosaurs; the new norm in North America is six- to
eight-speed stepped automatic transmissions. European manufacturers
have always favored manual transmissions, but are now moving
toward dual-clutch transmission (DCT) technology for the combined
fuel-economy/performance benefits over manual transmissions.
Even perennial Formula 1 winner Michael Schumacher can't shift
a manual transmission as fast as new DCT technologies. Asian
automakers will continue to incorporate more continuously
variable transmissions (CVTs) in their new vehicles. Nissan
and Subaru are already heavily committed to this technology.
These new technologies
do not always work exactly as expected the first time out
of the factory, and they have many problems. Most of the technologies
either place more stress on the lubricant, require much higher
quality oil or both. As more expensive problems develop, prevention
becomes more valuable, and premium-quality AMSOIL lubricants
excel at preventing lubrication-related problems before they
variable valve timing are two technologies that are going
to be used widely and put particular stress on engines. People
who have experience with turbochargers in diesel applications
know the importance of good maintenance and the value of superior
motor oils in these applications. Turbochargers use exhaust
gases to compress combustion air to improve combustion efficiency.
They spin up to 150,000 rpm and use hot exhaust gases as input
power, and they are lubricated with motor oil. We profiled
variable valve timing in May and highlighted the need for
high-quality motor oil to prevent potential issues associated
with this technology. In the future, many vehicles will use
a combination of turbocharging and variable valve timing,
putting exponentially more stress on the lubricant and further
increasing the importance of using a high-quality motor oil.

AMSOIL Signature Series
Synthetic Motor Oil
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic
Motor Oils are formulated to meet the latest API SN Resource
Conserving and ILSAC GF-5 industry specifications. AMSOIL
Signature Series Oils include 0W-20, 0W-30, 5W-30 and 10W-30
and represent the very best motor oils AMSOIL has to offer,
allowing motorists to take advantage of maximum extended
drain intervals. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor
Oils are recommended for drain intervals of up to 25,000
miles/one year, whichever comes first (15,000 miles/one
year in severe service conditions).

Synthetic Motor Oils offer the longest drain intervals
on the market, unsurpassed protection and performance that
effectively extends equipment life and improved fuel economy,
saving customers money at the pump and reducing the nation's
dependence on foreign oil.

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
