ANY AMSOIL CUSTOMERS claim they get better gasoline mileage when they use AMSOIL motor
oils. Actual results vary widely because of a multitude of factors. Independent testing
revels that AMSOIL Series 2000 0W-30 Motor OIl passes the API Sequence VI Energy Conservation
Test with a 38 percent higher rating than the minimum specifications.
"The test results show that AMSOIL has the potential to save energy by conserving
fuel," said Technical Services Manager Ed Kellerman. "In most cases it can increase
mileage, but at the very least you're getting superior engine protection."
Ralph Sites, a police officer in Rustburg, VA, said he put AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic
Motorcycle Oil in his 2002 GL 1800 Honda gold Wing when it had 4,550 miles on the engine.
"I had been getting 30 miles per gallon," Sites said. "I was supposed to be getting
40 to 45 miles per gallon."
His first oil change to AMSOIL improved his mileage to 38 miles per gallon, he said.
At 6,500 miles on the engine, he was getting 40 miles per gallon. He replaced the final
drive oil with AMSOIL Series 2000 75W-90 Gear Lube.
"I switched to AMSOIL for the long-term gain. The improved gas mileage was just a
bonus. AMSOIL is cheaper than Honda's synthetic and I don't have to change it as often.
It's a win-win situation."
Sites bought the new bike in January 2002, and after putting 12,000 miles on it he
estimated he'd saves more than $100 in a matter of a few months because of the increased
mileage he got after switching to AMSOIL.
