AMSOIL Introduces NMMA Certified Synthetic Blend 25W-40 Marine Engine Oil

AMSOIL’s philosophy is to provide customers premium protection while still comporting to OEM recommendations in owner’s manuals. AMSOIL 25W-40 Synthetic-Blend Marine Engine Oil is formulated specifically for Mercury* and Mercruiser* motors that encourage the use of synthetic-blend oil. Mercury owner’s manuals actually discourage the use of full-synthetic oil. Since Mercury is the market leader and most Mercury owners won’t consider straying from these guidelines, AMSOIL 25W-40 Synthetic-Blend Marine Engine Oil was developed to give Mercury and Mercruiser owners a high tech upgrade while paralleling Mercury recommendations. Use in gasoline-fueled four-stroke inboards, outboards, inboard/outboards and personal watercraft that require any of the specifications […]

Another “Oil Ain’t Oil” Lawsuit

The National Oil and Lube News (NOLN) December 29 reported on an article originally posted on Chron about Dollar General being sued by a man from Houston contending that the DG store-branded motor oils “…are unsuitable for today’s cars.” (http://www.noln.net/article/lawsuit-dollar-general-motor-oil-not-safe-cars-newer-1980s-go-figure) “The complaint alleges that the motor oils are obsolete, fail to protect and can damage ‘modern-day’ automobiles.” From reading the article, there are apparently three viscosities in question: 10W30, 10W40 and 30. The first two are rated “SF” and the 30W is rated as an SA non-detergent oil, according to pictures of the labels. This lawsuit is similar to others […]

FTC Taking Action Against BMW for Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act Violations

AMSOIL has always been warranty secure. As millions of satisfied AMSOIL customers know, using AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants or practicing extended drain intervals does not void new vehicle or equipment warranties. In recent years, some original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have attempted to revive old fears about warranty coverage in an attempt to increase sales of their own, typically-more-expensive, OEM-branded oils. AMSOIL’s Warranty Secure symbol informs consumers of this fact. The Federal Trade Commission has approved a final consent order against BMW of North America LLC, whose MINI Division allegedly violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act by telling consumers that BMW would void […]

AMSOIL Offshore Racer Bob Teague Rebuilds Program

AMSOIL Offshore Racer Bob Teague Rebuilds Program Team AMSOIL offshore racer Bob Teague has rebuilt his program after a year of upheaval and uncertainty. In 2013, the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) and Super Boat International (SBI) introduced extremely different engine rules that were a stark contrast to the large twin 525’s that Teague successfully used for years. Knowing he faced the ominous task of completely rebuilding his engine program, a costly endeavor, Teague decided it was best to wait out the changes and see which series would rise with the tide. Teague and long-time driver Paul Whittier made their 2014 […]
