AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil Outperforms Competition in New Study

AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil and nine other synthetic oils were subjected to five industry tests conducted according to American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) methodology. Testing examined several important areas of motor oil performance, including resistance to deposit formation, wear protection, high-temperature stability, resistance to acid formation and cold-temperature performance. The overall annual cost of each oil was also compared. When it was all said and done, Signature Series demonstrated the best overall performance and cost-effectiveness.

Inspections Reveal 77 Percent of Vehicles Require Service

According to the Car Care Council, vehicle inspections held across the nation in April and October 2012 revealed 77 percent of vehicles need service or parts. Neglected areas included low or dirty motor oil (22 percent); low, leaky or dirty coolant (20 percent) and inadequate brake fluid levels (18 percent). Power steering and transmission fluids were also inspected, with failure rates of 14 percent and below.

The “check engine light” was illuminated in 8 percent of inspected vehicles, 19 percent required new air filters, 14 percent had at least one unsatisfactory belt, 10 percent needed at least one new hose, 10 percent had batteries improperly held down, 11 percent needed maintenance on battery cables, clamps and terminals, 14 percent had front windshield wiper failures, 1 percent needed service to rear wipers, 13 percent needed lights replaced, 9 percent had improperly inflated tires and 10 percent needed new tires.

“Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value,” said Car Care Council Executive Director Rich White.
