New Motor Oil Specifications Now in Effect

The automotive industry’s latest specifications, ILSAC GF-6 and API SP, are now effective. Our claims about using advanced technology aren’t just talk, and this specification update proves it once again. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils already meet or exceed the new industry standards and require no change in formulation. This is not the first time we’ve been in this position. While the competition works on making major formulation adjustments, we are ready. Our product labels will soon feature the new specifications as inventories of current packaging are depleted.

See the May AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Build Your Sales Force

Finding new Dealers to join your team can help you build a strong sales group and maximize your commissions. Not everyone makes a good Dealer though. Be selective and extend this great opportunity to hard-working, self-starting people looking to supplement their income and become part of a community of like-minded individuals. Bring them into the group, help train them on AMSOIL programs and products and work together to generate new business.

Send prospective new Dealers to joinamsoil.com using a Dealer-number transferring link to tie them to your personal sales group after registration.

Guidelines for Proper Social Media Use

We welcome and encourage Dealer participation on our Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other social media platforms, but please remember to follow corporate policy and use professionalism to create the best experience for everyone.

Like, comment on and share our social media content to help build the brand to everyone’s benefit. But please do not use social media to take issue with corporate policies, solicit business, complain about the compensation plan and so forth. Social media is meant to share engaging content and start conversations that build relationships with Dealers, customers and prospects, not as a public forum for the airing of your grievances.

As a reminder, AMSOIL corporate policy prevents Dealers from soliciting business on our corporate social media platforms, such as mentioning your business name, posting your webpage URL and inviting people to send you a private message (see Section 7.11 Social Media, paragraph 6 in the Independent AMSOIL Dealer Policies & Procedures). It also prevents Dealers from disparaging the company in public forums, including social media. As indicated in Section 4.2 Non-Disparagement, disparagement may result in termination of your Dealership.

We provide plenty of channels for you to communicate with us and welcome all feedback, even if you want to take issue with a corporate decision or pose challenging questions. See the Corporate Contacts to find the right department for your inquiry. As always, if you don’t know where to direct your questions, contact Customer Service at [email protected] or 1-800-777-7094 and we’ll be glad to help.

We want to hear from you. We’re here to help you and provide support to build your business. But please use social media for its proper intent and contact us directly with your questions.
