3,000-15,000 MILE MOTOR OIL MYTHS
3,000 mile oil change has been pounded into people’s heads. In fact, the average drain interval in Europe is 10,000 miles.
Other oil companies, their incentive MAXIMIZE PROFITS.
They formulate oils down to a PRICE, rather than formulating them to be the BEST they CAN BE. Marc Graham, who is president of Pennzoil-Quaker State-owned JIFFY LUBE International, was quoted in a 2001 Lubricants World interview as saying, “If we use a number internally that if we [shortened the drain interval] by 100 miles [for each car serviced], it would mean an additional $20 million in revenue for JIFFY LUBE.” VEHICLE MANUFACTURES are definitely coming around most owners manuals from recent model vehicles recommend 5000 to 7500 mile oil drain intervals. In addition, oil life monitors have become increasingly common on today’s vehicles. This is NO DOUBT one of the reasons..
$135 BILLION was BIGGEST PROFIT for ExxonMobil
According to AMSOIL VP Alan Amatuzio, the introduction of ExxonMobil extended drain oil is long overdue.
“the fact that ExxonMobil is finally saying the same thing brings the message to even more people. ExxonMobil’s move is significant in that more consumers will now recognize AMSOIL as the pioneer in extended drain oils and will benefit from the advanced technology we introduced.”
GM said “The traditional 3,000-mile oil change recommendation was based on engine and oil technologies of the past.”
Why is there a miles and time limit with respect to oil change intervals?
No matter how well motor oil is formulated, it won’t last forever. Motor oil marketers and vehicle manufacturers have developed general recommendations for the maximum amount of time or miles that the oil can be used; typically these intervals fall between 3,000 and 7,500 miles, depending on the type of service. Many AMSOIL motor oils are specially formulated for extended drain intervals and provide maximum protection longer than other oils. Check the product data sheet for specific recommendations.
What are “NORMAL” and “SEVERE” driving conditions?
AMSOIL defines normal service as personal vehicles frequently traveling greater than 10 miles at a time and not operating under severe service.
AMSOIL defines severe service for gasoline engines as turbo/supercharge engines, commercial or fleet vehicles, excessive engine idling, use of AMSOIL engine oil in vehicles with more than 100,000 miles without prior regular use of AMSOIL engine oil, daily short-trip driving less than 10 miles (16km), frequent towing, plowing, hauling or dusty-condition driving.
AMSOIL defines severe service for diesel engines as extensive engine idling, daily short-trip driving less than 10 miles (16km) or frequent dusty-condition driving.
UPGRADE as PREFERRED CUSTOMER or AMSOIL DEALER
Is there a recommended procedure for changing to AMSOIL motor oil?
There are no special requirements for changing to AMSOIL motor oil. However, in older vehicles with high mileage, it may be advisable to use AMSOIL Engine Flush first. This will ensure the engine is clean and free of accumulated contaminants that may affect the service life of AMSOIL motor oil. Installation of an AMSOIL Absolute Efficiency Oil Filter (EaO) at every oil change is recommended.
