U.S. Military Engineering Note: The Service Life Cycle of a lubricant is dependent upon the "QUALITY" of the oil and the filtration system's ability to keep it clean.
Step # 1 By-Pass Filtration -:- Super Filters Motor Oil Keeping It Analytically Clean -:- PDF
Automotive experts agree that dirt is the number one cause of engine wear. Compared to microscopic dirt particles, your engine is a Goliath, roaring with heat and energy as it converts fuel into raw horsepower.
But despite all this power, your engine is extremely vulnerable to the threat of microscopic engine dirt. In fact, if unchecked, this tiny menace will dramatically erode your engine's performance and can eventually cripple it beyond repair.
By-Pass filtration is a valuable commodity for anyone that wants to extend drain intervals and prolong engine life. It is also beneficial to vehicles that are exposed to high levels of contaminants on a regular basis. They provide the ultimate in protection against wear, oil degradation, rust and corrosion. Efficiency is the filter's ability to capture contaminants. The more efficient a filter is, the more contaminants it will remove from the oil.
Correlating Lube Oil Filtration Efficiencies with Engine Wear.
A documented 70% reduction in engine wear rates (per extensive OEM testing that was reported in Society of Automotive Engineers Technical Paper #881825 by using special filters with nanofiber technology from the military and medical industries.

Clean Oil = Better Fuel Economy and Reduced Emissions
In an issue of Machinery Lubrication Magazine, a column discussed the important role of lubrication on energy conservation and environmental protection.
A case in point is the impact of clean oil on fuel consumption and emission in engines. There are many ways that a lubricant could fail to deliver fuel-efficient engine performance. Many of these are due to formulation issues as opposed to transient properties of the lubricant in service.
Clean Oil = Better Fuel Economy and Reduced Emissions
Step # 2 Synthetic Motor Oil -:- MAXIMUM Protection and Extended Oil Drain Intervals -:- PDF
Vehicle and Equipment failures occur for a variety of reasons. Each one of these failures creates a ripple effect of costs and productivity loss. Some of these issues can be mitigated by choosing a high performance synthetic lubricant that can withstand harsh/extreme operating conditions and/or environments and ultra-fine filtration. While high performance synthetic lubricants and ultra-fine filtration are more expensive initially, the added expenditure is recovered through reduced breakdowns, downtime and maintenance costs, which results in long-term overall savings.
Friction Fact According To: Mr. Kenneth E. Banister of Lubrication for Industry.
Over one-third of ALL the energy produced in the world is consumed in overcoming friction.
Even modern internal combustion engines convert only one third of the energy in fuel into useful work. The rest is lost to waste heat, the friction of moving engine parts or to pumping air into and out of the engine.
The potential to improve fuel economy at all of the steps at which energy is wasted are enormous opportunities for advanced technologies to increase fuel economy.
Synthetic Lubricants have a much greater Film-Strength
Film strength is what keeps oil molecules from being pushed away from each other under pressure.
Did YOU Know: The nominal film-strength of conventional petroleum motor oil is approximately 400-PSI.
Yet: The nominal film-strength of 100% full PAO synthetic motor oil is approximately 3,200-PSI that is an 8 times greater lower coefficient of friction (in other words it takes more than 8 times as much pressure to squeeze PAO synthetic oil from between two surfaces than conventional mineral-based oil) which means...
Less Friction = Less Wear = Greater Fuel Economy
The uniform diameter of synthetic oil polymers allows them to more easily and slide over one another. The resultant reduction in friction shows up as more horsepower, torque, reduced internal engine wear and better fuel economy.
1995 Independent Lab Fuel Efficiency Testing of advanced quality-first formulated 35,000-Mile/1-Year Full Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil showed the oil provided 38% better fuel economy than required for the specification. That was the largest fuel economy increase recorded by the test lab. Its ULTRA Low Coefficient of Friction reduces friction so effectively, that virtually none of the engines power is wasted on “drag”.
Also because of a very low coefficient of friction it means little or no metal is worn off parts. Which in turn means that piston rings will seal better and proportionately less combustion by products (blow-by which also = LESS Exhaust Stream EMISSIONS) will get down into the oil and increase contamination and shorten the oils service life.
Beat the Heat Reduce Operating Temperatures
Whether it is ambient or generated or a combination of both. Reduce operating temperatures of bearings, transmissions, gearboxes, engines and hydraulic unit's etc. 20 to 50 degrees using synthetic lubricants.
Did YOU Know: Rigid conventional petroleum lubricant motor oil molecules move heat along hot surfaces? The surface of the oil film gets overburdened with heat while the core of the oil stream gets a free ride. - It's called Laminar Flow -, it is not an efficient system, and it keeps engine surfaces HOTTER...
YET: Synthetic motor oils are better heat transfer agents than conventional petroleum lubricants are, so the engines heat bill adds up to less. Flexible synthetic lubricant lubricant oil molecules allow heat to swirl away from the hot surfaces and into the core of the oil stream... - It's called Turbulent Flow -.
American Public Works Association (2001) Cost Saving Strategies using Synthetic Oil
In the past, all marked and unmarked police vehicles would come in monthly for an oil change, lube, and safety check. As a test, in 1993 we switched two marked Chevrolet Caprice vehicles over to 100 percent synthetic engine oil and extended their drain intervals to 20,000 miles, with a new oil filter installed at 10,000 miles.
The vehicles are still scheduled to come in for a monthly safety inspection (tires, brakes, suspension, lights, etc.), but the oil is not drained, only a sample is taken.
Troy, Michigan switched its entire Police and City Hall Fleet to Synthetic Oil ( 2001 August )
Step # 3 Oil Analysis -:- Eliminate the Guess Work on Engine and Oil Condition -:- PDF
A Proven Industry Standard Maintenance Tool! Minimize Wear and You Maximize Productivity. Contaminants that can indicate wear or cause serious equipment damage such as metals, water, raw fuel, acids, fuel soot and other solids collect in your lubricant.
Using oil analysis to evaluate these contaminants is a scientific approach to predictive maintenance, allowing you a look inside your machinery to spot mechanical wear and contamination in its early stages.
You'll extend machine life, head off major maintenance costs and prevent catastrophic failure that can shut you down or leave you stranded, and you'll maximize lubricant life.
Maximize oil drain intervals, extend equipment life, prevent problems, maximize asset reliability and increase resale value.

Documented Synthetic Motor Oils go The 100,000-Miles + Distance
"A Synthetic Diesel Engine Oil with Extended Laboratory Test and Field Service Performance." describes engine test and "extended oil drain" field performance of a synthetic 5W-40 motor oil with "an additive system specifically formulated for synthetic basestocks" made for use in North American low-emissions heavy-duty engines.
SAE Researchers found, "Many units have operated on [ the synthetic oil ] in heavy-duty, long haul service at "extended drain intervals" with some units on drain intervals BEYOND 100,000-Miles. Even under these conditions [ the synthetic oil ] has consistently provided measurable benefits in terms of improved engine performance".
