Ecological and Environmental Benefits of AMSOIL


It is estimated that over 240 million gallons of oil are improperly discarded annually. Dumping 240 million gallons of oil is nearly the same as two Exxon Valdez spills each month. Just one quart of used oil can produce a two-acre oil slick. One gallon of oil can make one million gallons of water too foul to drink and 35 ppm of oil will kill fish.  

Most automobile manufacturers recommend oil drain intervals of 3,000 to 6,000 miles for petroleum motor oils. AMSOIL recommends up to a 35,000-mile oil change which is 5 to 11 times fewer oil changes. Just think about the savings on the environment if, for example, the 243 million cars (excluding trucks, buses and taxis) in the United States were equipped with AMSOIL motor oil. Assuming an average service-life of 100,000 miles and an oil capacity of 5 quarts each, 20.2 billion to 40.5 billion quarts of used oil will be generated during a regular service lifetime (with regular oil changes every 3,000 to 6,000 miles). If 40.5 billion quarts of used oil were put into 55-gallon barrels and lined up, the line would stretch from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. and back 12 times. Alternatively, if each of those 243 million cars was equipped with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils and following oil drain intervals of 7,500 to 35,000 miles, only 3.5 billion to 16.2 billion quarts of oil would be consumed in the same period.

Why AMSOIL?

For over three decades, AMSOIL INC. has been recognized as the leader in synthetic lubrication technology. AMSOIL was the first to introduce a synthetic motor oil qualified by the American Petroleum Institute, the first to recommend 25,000- mile/one-year drain intervals, the first to recommend 35,000-mile/one-year drain intervals, and the first to imple­ment a system for dramatically increasing drain intervals with oil analysis. Decades of research, laboratory analysis and millions of engine miles have kept AMSOIL the leader in auto­motive applications for synthetic lubrication. Although the results have paid off in maximizing efficiency and minimizing waste, more can be done. AMSOIL is the leader in synthetics and will continue to explore ways to reduce environmental impact through continued research, analysis and product development. AMSOIL: ISO 14001:2004 Registered

Ecological and Economical Benefits

1. Reduces Emissions, Increases Engine Life

Each year nearly 600 million gallons of motor oil are burned and exit through the tailpipes of cars and trucks, creating emissions pollution. Petroleum oils volatilize (burn off) more readily than AMSOIL syn­thetic oils and create more emissions pollution.  

 

2. Greater Fuel Economy

The advanced lubricity (slipperiness) of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants has been proven to increase fuel economy by 2-5%. AMSOIL lubricants reduce fric­tion and allow your engine to use its heat-energy more efficiently.

3. How Much Is 5%?

If a person averages more than 15,000 miles each year, and spends an average of $2.50 per gallon of gas, a 5% savings would be $75 per year (assuming an average of 25 mpg).

 

Interesting Facts

  • Recycling just two gallons of used oil can generate enough electricity to run the average household for nearly 24 hours. 

  • Three states in the U.S. have classified used motor oil as a hazardous waste: California, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. 

  • The used oil from one oil change can contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water - a year's supply for 50 people. 

  • If all Americans who changed their own oil recycled their used oil, it would provide enough motor oil for more than 50 million cars a year. Imagine how much foreign oil that would eliminate.
