A Documented History of Innovation and Leadership
Introducing many new products that were the FIRST of their kind.
1972 AMSOIL FIRST to develop an API-rated 100% synthetic motor oil ( 10W-40 ).
1972 AMSOIL FIRST to introduce the concept of "Extended Oil Change Drain Intervals" ( 25,000-Miles ).
In 1972 AMSOIL synthetic motor oil became the FIRST 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). And as they say the rest is history. With that the Automotive Synthetic Lubricant Industry was born.
1972 AMSOIL FIRST to introduce synthetic oils that legitimately contribute to improving fuel efficiency.
1974 AMSOIL FIRST to manufacture synthetic gear lube for automotive use ( 80W-90 ).
1975 AMSOIL FIRST to produce synthetic motor oils for diesel engines ( SE, CC, CD ).
1978 AMSOIL FIRST to produce synthetic motor oils for racing engines ( 20W-50 ).
1980 AMSOIL FIRST to manufacture a synthetic automatic transmission fluid (ATF) for automotive use.
1982 AMSOIL FIRST to produce synthetic motor oils for marine engines ( 15W-40 ).
1984 AMSOIL FIRST to produce synthetic motor oils for turbo engines ( 10W-30 ).
2005 AMSOIL FIRST to manufacture a full-synthetic advanced Ultra-Fine NanoFiber Technology cartridge-style oil filter.
