AMSOIL Excels in V-Twin Torture Test


Extreme heat is the biggest enemy for a powerful, air-cooled V-twin engine, like those found on most Harley-Davidson* motorcycles. In fact, when designing its latest V-twin engine platform – the Milwaukee Eight* – Harley asked riders what they wanted from its newest engine. Two themes emerged: more power and less heat.


To test AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil in the latest V-twin technology, we purchased a 2019 Harley-Davidson Street Bob equipped with a 107-c.i. Milwaukee Eight engine and subjected it to 1,000 miles of extreme-heat testing on the dyno.


To see the results, read the August AMSOIL Magazine and check out the V-Twin Extreme Heat Torture Test video.

Discount Programs for AMSOIL Installers and Commercial Accounts

AMSOIL installers and commercial accounts earn discounts based on their annual purchases, and those discounts stay with them all year.

 

Installer Discount Program

We’ve updated the Installer Program to bring more value to accounts that service vehicles, helping you attract new customers and build better relationships with your existing ones. Installer discounts are based on the amount they purchase during the calendar year. Discounts are activated as soon as cumulative purchases reach the minimum threshold, and that discount is guaranteed for the full following year (January – December). Each installer’s 2021 discount will be based on the amount the installer purchased in 2020.


U.S. Annual Purchases         Discount

$3,500 - $24,999.99                 5%

$25,000+                                 10%

Canada Annual Purchases    Discount

$4,500 - $29,999.99                  5%

$30,000+                                  10%


Commercial Discount Program

Commercial accounts also earn discounts based on their annual purchases, and those discounts stay with them all year. At the beginning of each calendar year, an account’s discount is locked in based on its purchases over the previous 12 months. Accounts that purchase enough to qualify for a higher discount level are granted that discount immediately, but accounts that fall out of qualification continue receiving their current discount rate for the remainder of the year.

U.S. Annual Purchases          Discount

$5,000 - $9,999.99                     5%

$10,000+                                   10%
 

Canada Annual Purchases    Discount

$6,000 - $11,999.99                   5%

$12,000+                                   10%

New Look, Name for European Car Formula

We’re giving AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil a new look and name. Starting in September, our European motor oil will be renamed AMSOIL 100% Synthetic European Motor Oil. The updated line will have new labels and feature FS, MS and LS identifications to help differentiate between full-SAPS, mid-SAPS and low-SAPS products. We’re also adding two new 0W-20 options Sept. 1. The rest of the lineup will make the transition as a rolling change around the same time.
