WHY does every Jet Fighter Engine in The World use SYNTHETIC Lubricants Exclusively?
Because of three extraordinary high-performance characteristics...
1. With an ability to reduce friction and wear on engine components
2. With an ability to function dependably at severe temperature extremes
3. With an ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemical breakdown
While many technological advances occur in an evolutionary manner, occasionally a revolutionary technology appears on the horizon that creates startling new conditions and profound changes. At the heart of every successful business venture you'll find two things: technical innovation and business foresight.
“When someone starts a new company and risks everything to its success, they better be sure they have a better mousetrap. I have always been driven to be the best. I would never have started this company with a second rate product because doing so would have gone against my nature".
“Al” Amatuzio was the very definition of the American success story. Throughout his life he had continually set the standards of business and entrepreneurial excellence, especially with his interests in synthetic lubrication technology.
In 1972 AMZOIL Introduced The Worlds FIRST API Approved 100% Synthetic Motor Oil
And as they say the rest is history. With that The Automotive Synthetic Lubricant Industry was born.
Our Product QUALITY is Our Reputation since 1972
In 1972 AMZOIL became the FIRST synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute (API) automotive service requirements setting all-new standards for motor oil quality, and went a step further introducing the concept of "extended oil change drain intervals" (Because in 1972 the oil was also capable of performing for 25,000-mile "extended oil change drain intervals", and it was the right thing to do for the consumer all while maintaining and providing long-term performance, wear protection and fuel economy, keeping engines clean and deposit-free, providing cold weather starts and protecting against rust and corrosion).

AMSOIL is a privately held corporation that is able to control its own destiny.
AMSOIL is passionate about only producing quality and innovation in its products.
AMSOIL Law of Quality: Offer the consumer who demands the highest quality for the very lowest price. Measure the quality by what percentage of the time a product does what it is sold to do and how long it continues to do it.
A.J. "Al" Amatuzio's Philosophy: "I take pride in never having conformed to industry norms or standards when these standards are contrary to peak performance." Formulating for peak performance, in his book, includes the single measure that consumers can understand and act on -- longer "extended oil change drain intervals" without sacrificing protection.
As one of a few independently owned oil companies, we've always stood apart from the big oil companies. “While the competition has been formulating their oils down to a price, we have been formulating ours up to the highest performance standards.”
"Our company makes the best lubricants in the world, period, and challenges anyone or any company to prove us wrong! That won't happen because our competitors know it's true." "We do things with our products that other companies won't do or don't have the expertise to do." "We don't make "minimum standard" products. We never have."

"The FIRST in Synthetics"® • Inspired by Aerospace Technology
Award-winning jet fighter pilot and Squadron Commander, Lieutenant Colonel A.J. “Al” Amatuzio gained a solid appreciation for the extraordinary benefits of the lubricants that protected the engines of the jets he flew.
Armed with the knowledge that every jet engine in the world could survive (the "extreme" heat and cold temperatures and high rpm performance operating conditions) only with the superb hi-performance and protection of synthetic lubricants, and he also knew that the same outstanding performance benefits synthetic lubricants provided for jet engines would prove invaluable to car, truck and other internal combustion engines.
Al ignored the skeptics and in 1963 he began an intense period of research. He assembled the industry's most knowledgeable chemists, and by 1966 his newly formulated synthetic motor oil was being sold commercially. Throughout the rest of 1960s Amatuzio continued his research and developed commercially available synthetic oils under a variety of names.
The major break thru came in 1972 when AMZOIL synthetic motor oil became the world's first synthetic motor oil to meet American Petroleum Institute service requirements. Al Amatuzio had single handedly changed the entire automotive lubricant industry, even though it was unknown to the petroleum and automotive industry at the time.
Falling back on his Raleigh Street instincts and military training, he fought major corporations like Pennzoil and Amway in multi-year lawsuits. They tried to squash his dream before it got started. They soon found out the fighting tenacity of Al Amatuzio when he beat them all. Today, every oil company in America has synthetic oil due exclusively to the struggle and success of Al Amatuzio. Al used to joke that the disbelievers “all thought I was at altitude too long without oxygen.”

Why Quality Motor Oil Matters • When it comes to protection, can you have too much?
New Oil Technology Needed to Prevent "Super Knock"
A potentially catastrophic problem is surfacing in today's engines. Here's how we're working to solve it.
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been aggressively downsizing engines to meet strict fuel-economy and emissions standards without sacrificing power and torque. Most new engines today use some combination of turbochargers, direct-fuel injection and variable valve timing to make more power than their larger counterparts while delivering improved fuel economy.
What is LSPI?
As its name implies, LSPI is the spontaneous ignition of the fuel/air mixture prior to spark-triggered ignition. LSPI is a more destructive form of regular pre-ignition, which has been around since engines were invented. In this case, though, it occurs under low-speed, high-torque conditions in turbocharged gasoline-direct-injected (TGDI) engines and is much more destructive than typical pre-ignition.
In a properly operating engine, spark-triggered ignition typically occurs a few degrees before the piston reaches top dead center (TDC). This careful timing ensures the downward force of the exploding fuel/air mixture works in tandem with downward piston momentum, resulting in optimum engine efficiency and power.
LSPI effectively throws off engine timing. In turbocharged engines operating under certain conditions, particularly at low speeds and under high torque, like when taking off from a stoplight, the fuel/air can spontaneously ignite too early in the combustion cycle. The expanding combustion charge collides with the piston as it's still moving up the cylinder. The collision between the exploding combustion charge and the upward-moving piston can destroy the pistons or connecting rods.
What causes LSPI?
Current thinking suggests the cause is due in part to oil/fuel droplets or particles in the cylinder auto-igniting randomly. The droplets/particles heat enough to ignite the air/fuel mixture before the spark plug ignites. This means oil formulation can play a role in reducing LSPI.
Testing has shown that certain motor oil components can promote LSPI, while others can help quench it. Even the formulation of gasoline plays a role; however, it's easier to solve the problem by reformulating motor oil.
Oil formulators face a difficult balancing act. It's no easy task figuring out how to formulate a motor oil that delivers excellent wear protection, resists the increased heat of turbocharged engines, prevents deposits, acts as a hydraulic fluid and, now, combats LSPI. The important thing to keep in mind is that it is the performance of the total formulation that counts, not just the quantity of one or two motor oil components.
New Performance Specs Coming
Difficult or not, fighting LSPI must be done. Next-generation oils will need to pass an LSPI test to meet the new API SP and ILSAC GF-6 performance specifications set to take effect in mid-2019. General Motors is ahead of the game and requires oils to pass their own LSPI test to meet its updated GM dexos1 specification (known as dexos1:2015) scheduled to take effect Aug. 31, 2017.
For now, you don't have to worry too much. Your vehicle's computer is programmed to avoid operating conditions that lead to LSPI. However, operating your engine under those conditions does promise fuel economy gains, so once oils hit the market that combat LSPI, you can bet the OEMs will program their vehicles to benefit from those efficiency gains.
After Months of Vigorous Testing, the Results Are In:
AMSOIL synthetic motor oil provided 100 percent protection against LSPI in the engine test required for the GM dexos1 Gen 2 specification, proving it can protect turbocharged direct-injected engines.

Decades and Thousands of Miles Ahead of The Competition
The Bottom Line: Our competitors have been formulating their oils to run at normal drain intervals while we have been formulating our Synthetic Motor Oils for 25,000-mile and beyond "extended oil change drain intervals" since 1972, and there in lies the difference. Their oils don't have to be as good as ours, so they are not.
Maximize your oil change drain intervals without risking reliability. You will get better wear protection, lower engine operating temperatures, improved fuel efficiency (MPG) and easier cold-weather starts. All of these benefits add up to reduced operating costs and longer engine life. And even more, you generate less waste oil, which helps preserve our environment and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
AMSOIL has expanded the boundaries of lubrication science and redefined the performance possibilities of engines, equipment and machinery in automotive, commercial and industrial applications since 1972.
