AMSOIL “The FIRST in Synthetics”® = Introducing many new products that were the FIRST of their kind.

 1972  In 1972 “The First in Synthetics”® FIRST to develop an API-rated 100 percent synthetic motor oil ( 10W-40 ). AMSOIL FIRST to   develop an API-rated 100% synthetic motor oil ( 10W-40 ).

 1972  In 1972 “The First in Synthetics”® FIRST to introduce the concept of “Extended Oil Change Drain Intervals” ( 25,000-Miles ). AMSOIL FIRST to   introduce the concept of "Extended Oil Change Drain Intervals" ( 25,000-Miles ).

In 1972 his 10W-40 became the FIRST synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute (API) automotive service requirements  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.
