Another Premium AMSOIL Option for European Vehicles

Another Premium AMSOIL Option for European Vehicles

Posted: July 10, 2015 – New Product

AMSOIL has expanded its European Car Formula line to include a full-SAPS 0W-40 viscosity. Featuring the same premium synthetic formulation and recommended for the same specifications as European Car Formula 5W-40 Full-SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil (EFM), new European Car Formula 0W-40 Full-SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil (EFO) provides European vehicle customers with a different viscosity option.

 

European vehicle owner’s manuals typically require the motor oil meets a certain specification, but many list several viscosity options. Some manufacturers include temperature graphs to help customers choose a viscosity based on climate, but many customers prefer using lower viscosity oils in all environments. New AMSOIL European Car Formula 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil provides customers that lower viscosity option, and it is ideal for customers looking for a premium AMSOIL alternative to competing 0W-40 motor oils that carry European specifications.

AMSOIL Super Chevy Best of the Best: Tri-Five

AMSOIL Super Chevy Best of the Best: Tri-Five

August 21, 2012

In our new blog mini-series we’ll be covering each of the five categories in the AMSOIL Super Chevy Best of the Best program: Nova, Full-Size, Tri-Five, Chevelle and Camaro. These models have sustained a following of enthusiasts over the years, despite most no longer being in production. Next up in the series is the Tri-Five group, named for the glory years Chevy enjoyed with the production of their 1955-1957 models.

Of all the models Chevy produced in the fifties, the big change came in 1955 with the reinvention of Chevy that included the introduction of the small-block Chevy V8. While the Bel-Air is the most popular classic of the Tri-Five group, other models include the Nomad, Townsman, Two-Ten Delrays, Beauvilles, and One-Fifty Handymans. Each came in a variety of options from hardtops to convertibles, to sedans and wagons. In those days, buyers were given the freedom of purchasing a stripped down car and ordering everything from the engine size to the color and accessory options. These options included air conditioning, padded dash, tinted glass and even power windows and seats. The 1957 Bel-Air still holds a place in the minds of many as the iconic American car, known for being a solid, good looking automobile.

In the era of the fifties you could drive off the lot with a brand new Tri-Five Chevy for under $3,000.00. Today, they are worth upwards of $20,000 depending upon their condition. Even those in need of extensive work are fetching thousands, indeed more than their very first asking price. Enthusiasts spare no time or expense in restoring these classics, resulting in one of the largest collector car followings of its kind.

AMSOIL has had the pleasure of witnessing some of the best Tri-Five models turn out for Super Chevy shows and crowning them Best of the Best. Stay tuned for the next installment of the AMSOIL Super Chevy Best of the Best blog series as we take another walk down memory lane to discover what makes these classic Chevys so great.

AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost (MOB)

AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost

Maximizes Power and Efficiency

FREE Amsoil Catalog

AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost (MOB) increases octane for power and efficiency. It is designed to improve startup performance and eliminate engine ping and knock for increased power at low-rpm operation. Motorcycle Octane Boost contains detergents that help combustion chambers and fuel delivery systems maintain cleanliness for optimum performance. At the recommended treat rate, it does not harm catalytic converters or oxygen sensors and is compatible with all other AMSOIL fuel additives.

Maximizes Power & Performance
When treated at 1.3 oz. per gallon of fuel, MOB increases the octane of gasoline up to three numbers. Increased octane improves power and can eliminate performance-robbing and potentially damaging engine knock or ping (see below).

Motorcycle Octane Boost

Improves Low-rpm Performance
Engine knock is especially noticeable in some motorcycles during idle or low-rpm operation and high-temperature driving. Most modern bikes are equipped with sophisticated knock-detection systems that can alter spark timing and the air-to-fuel mixture until knock ceases. Although these systems protect the engine from damage, they can also cause reduced horsepower and poor low-rpm operability. AMSOIL MOB helps reduce the need for knock-detection systems to compensate, ensuring maximum low-rpm power and performance in modern bikes.

Cleans Harmful Deposits
Because Motorcycle Octane Boost contains active detergents, it can help maintain efficiency. For clean up, however, AMSOIL recommends treating gasoline with AMSOIL Quickshot®, which contains a greater concentration of cleaning agents.

What is engine knock and why does it matter?
The tendency of a hydrocarbon fuel, such as gasoline, to knock is measured by its octane number. Lower numbers denote a greater knock tendency; higher numbers denote greater knock control. “Engine knock” is a reference to the sound made from an uncontrolled and early ignition of fuel in the combustion chamber. It causes a knocking or pinging sound, robs the engine of power and can cause catastrophic engine damage. Knock may be eliminated by increasing the fuel’s octane.

What is Research Octane Number?
Research Octane Number (RON), Motor Octane Number (MON) and Anti-Knock Index (AKI) are the three most common octane ratings. AKI, the rating with which most North American motorists are familiar, is typically displayed on gas pumps as the average of the fuel’s RON and MON [(R+M)/2]. RON, however, is the most common industry rating. Therefore, AMSOIL uses the RON rating when conducting performance tests and product validation. Gasoline’s RON generally is a few numbers higher than the AKI posted on the gas pump (e.g. 87 octane fuel, or regular pump gas, has a RON of about 91-92).

When marketing their products, some additive manufacturers have adopted a points system where 10 points equals one octane number. A claim that an additive increases octane 30 points translates into an increase of three octane numbers. This approach is often used only to artificially strengthen marketing claims and is not endorsed by AMSOIL.

Treat Rate
One 4-oz. bottle of AMSOIL Motorcycle Octane Boost treats four to six gallons of gasoline. Slight overtreatment causes no issues,

APPLICATIONS
Motorcycle Octane Boost is primarily recommended for use in four-stroke air- or liquid-cooled motorcycles manufactured by Harley-Davidson®, Yamaha®, Honda®, Ducati®, BMW®, Triumph® and all other four-stroke motorcycles. It may be used in off-road applications, including ATVs, UTVs and snowmobiles, as an alternative to AMSOIL DOMINATOR® Octane Boost. Note: Clean spills immediately using a clean towel. If left standing, Motorcycle Octane Boost can stain painted or metal surfaces. If cleaned immediately, there is no need for concern.

Two Strokes vs Four Strokes

Here is one of the best graphical comparisons of 2 stroke vs 4 stroke engines I’ve seen. Keep in mind, Amsoil offers products for both types of engines. Here’s more information on Amsoil 2 stroke products, and here is information on Amsoil 4 stroke products.

Use this link for a Free Amsoil catalog sent via US Postal Service, no obligation.

Amsoil advantages for 2 strokes;

  • Helps prevents hard carbon deposits that cause exhaust power valve sticking and ring sticking.
  • Superior lubricity controls cylinder, piston and bearing wear.
  • Reduces smoke and odor associated with two-cycle engines.
  • Helps prevent plug fouling.
  • Provides exceptional SAE #4 cold temperature fluidity (-58°F pour point).
  • Versatile and excellent for all types of recreational equipment.
  • Protects against rust.
  • Helps prevent pre-detonation from combustion chamber “hot spots.”
