New! AMSOIL EaAR Performance Air Filter Kits.
Increase performance by increasing air flow using one of the EaAR Performance
Air Filter Kits. These high performance filters utilize increased filter area for better airflow.
Attractive filter kits that are designed with the street rodder in mind. Not only will you have
increased airflow, but vastly improved filtration as well. These are dry filters, not oiled. They
are cleanable and reusable. Just clean using a shop vac or compressed air. No need to for special
cleaning agents or oiling. Click picture for more information.
Synthetic Motor Oil & Lubricants Save Fuel!
Industry motor oil testing has shown improved fuel economy of 2 - 5% in vehicles
using synthetic lubricants. Many AMSOIL customer testimonials tell of even greater savings. If all
cars in America used AMSOIL synthetic motor oil, AMSOIL oil filter, gear lubes and drive train
fluids, we would save enough fuel to drive to the sun and
back 165 to 420 times over.

Improve Fuel Efficiency With Synthetic Lubricants
Short supplies and ever-increasing demand have pushed crude oil barrel prices to record highs
over the summer, and motorists have been directly affected. Gasoline is one of the primary products
produced from crude oil, and pump prices are directly affected by the prices refiners pay for crude
oil. In fact, the average price per gallon of gasoline reached levels over 50 cents higher than
last summer, causing motorists to alter their driving habits and look for every and any way to get
the most for their fuel dollar.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration of retail gasoline prices between 2000
and 2003, with refinery processing costs, marketing and distribution costs and gasoline station
costs and taxes comprising the balance. It is the volatility of crude oil prices that is most
responsible for fluctuating gasoline prices.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils have been shown to yield significant increases in fuel economy over
conventional motor oils. Petroleum-based lubricants are composed of irregular molecules of various
sizes that create excess friction, in addition to the friction generated between moving parts. The
vehicle's engine must burn extra fuel to overcome this friction, decreasing fuel economy. AMSOIL
synthetic lubricants, on the other hand, contain only smooth, uniform molecules that effectively
reduce friction and improve fuel efficiency.
Conventional lubricants are also very susceptible to volatility. When the oil's lighter
molecules volatize during hot operating conditions, viscosity increases and the oil becomes more
difficult to pump, consuming more energy and reducing fuel economy. Because AMSOIL synthetic
lubricants contain uniformly sized molecules, they resist volatization, maintain their viscosity
and allow more fuel to be used for vehicle propulsion, improving fuel economy.
The use of AMSOIL synthetic motor oils, gear lubes and drivetrain fluids can have a profound
impact on fuel economy. Industry tests demonstrate that an average passenger car can conservatively
decrease its fuel consumption by two to five percent by switching to synthetic lubricants, while
independent testing shows that trucks can decrease fuel consumption by 8.2 percent. Many AMSOIL
customers report even larger gains in fuel economy.
According to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, total U.S. fuel consumption was 162.3
billion gallons in the year 2000. Consider the savings if every American vehicle converted to
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants and gained a five percent increase in fuel economy. It would equate to
a savings of 8.115 billion gallons of fuel each year, at a price savings of $16.23 billion (at $2 a
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the average passenger vehicle burned 587
gallons of gasoline in 2002. At a price of $2 a gallon, the average vehicle owner spends $1174 on
gasoline each year. With a five percent fuel economy improvement afforded with AMSOIL synthetic
lubricants, the motorist saves $58.70 a year in fuel expenses. That's enough to cover the price of
a year's supply of AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil and Super Duty Oil Filters, with money left over.
In addition to fuel savings, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants also allow motorists to reduce oil
usage through extended drain intervals, all while significantly reducing friction and wear,
improving engine performance and extending equipment life.
