U.S. Price Adjustment on Kegs, Aerosols Effective Oct. 1

Prices for most products will hold the line.

We are holding prices at current levels for most products, helping Dealers and customers weather general inflation pressures in the market. We are implementing a minimal price adjustment on aerosols and 16-gal. kegs in the U.S. effective Oct. 1. Canadian prices will remain unchanged. Commissions will also be adjusted.

Why Are We Adjusting Prices?

We are continuing to face rising raw-material, additive, labor and freight costs. While we are absorbing these increased costs and holding the line on pricing for the vast majority of products, we must implement a price adjustment on aerosol products and 16-gal. kegs.

Our competitors have also issued multiple price increases. We take price increases seriously and only make adjustments when necessary. Aerosol products will increase by an average of 4.8% and 16-gal. kegs will increase by an average of 12%, with some products increasing less and others increasing more.

Accessing Updated Pricing 

Updated pricing information is available in the Pricing Lookup in the Dealer and Account Zones. To access pricing effective Oct. 1, select a product type in the menu, then select “Future Pricing.” The AMSOIL Wholesale Price List (G3500, G8500) and catalogs (Factory-Direct [G100, G300], Automotive [G3549, G3550], Powersports & Racing [G3511, G3512], Commercial Program [G3469, G3474], Retail Program [G3520, G3521]) are available with updated pricing in the Dealer Zone. Printed versions will be available as soon as possible. A printed U.S. Wholesale Price List will be included with the September AMSOIL Magazine for U.S. Dealers. We will notify your retail and commercial accounts of the price adjustment and include a U.S. Wholesale Price List in the September Service Line. We encourage you to follow up with them in person as well.

The Next 50 Compensation Plan Coming Oct. 1, 2022

The wait is almost over. The Next 50 (TN50) compensation plan, the biggest and most exciting improvement to the Dealer opportunity in decades, will take effect Oct. 1, 2022.

Following more than a year of research that involved industry experts and hundreds of hours of interviews with current and former Dealers, we developed the TN50 plan to meet the following goals:

• Simpler to understand and explain

• Pay new Dealers more

• Pay more closer to the sale

By introducing a simpler compensation plan that meets these goals, we hope that you’ll register and retain more active, successful Dealers. That adds up to more Dealers selling more products, growing the pie for everyone over the long term.

See the September AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

The Coolant Life

Coolant is a hard-working fluid. Heat produced by combustion must be removed to prevent overheating. Some of that heat escapes with the exhaust and some is absorbed by the engine block. But to keep heat within the engine’s operating temperature range, coolant must be pumped through the engine to the radiator, where excess heat can be dissipated.

Besides aiding engine-temperature regulation, a quality coolant will also protect against:

• Corrosion that damages metal components.

• Scaling that interferes with heat transfer.

• Cavitation and pitting that damage cylinder liners (heavy-duty applications).

See the September AMSOIL Magazine for more information.
