High Performance Oil for Race Car Engines

High performance engines, such as those in race cars, are precision machines that require premium lubrication to operate and maintain their maximum performance. As racing professionals know, lubricating oils can undergo a number of changes during operation. From shock loading to temperature extremes and various pressures at differing RPMs, only those oils tailored specifically for high performance racing engines should be considered for these applications. Regular motor oils and lubricants cannot provide the necessary stability to perform in such demanding requirements. However, it is important to understand what qualities to consider when selecting a high performance engine oil or lubricant such […]

Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil: What You Need to Know About 2 Stroke Oil

In the world of 2-stroke oil, there are two basic offerings on the market: petroleum-based oils and fully synthetic oils. Additionally, a number of manufacturers offer various blends of petroleum and synthetic oil. Synthetic oil has proven to be best for 2-stroke engines. What makes synthetic two-stroke oil different? Petroleum-based 2-stroke oil is “natural” in that it is made from fossil fuels – many 2-stroke enthusiasts refer to it as dino oil. While it provides adequate lubrication to the engine while it’s running, and aids in appropriate combustion, petroleum-based oil also leaves behind significantly more deposits than synthetic oils. Deposits […]

AMSOIL Smashes the Industry Standard – Again

A New Level of Protection & Performance on the Horizon A potentially catastrophic problem is surfacing in today’s engines. Here’s how AMSOIL has solved it.   Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been aggressively downsizing engines to meet strict fuel-economy and emissions standards while improving power and torque. Most new engines today use some combination of turbochargers, direct-fuel injection and variable valve timing to make more power than their larger counterparts while delivering improved fuel economy. This scenario seems like all up-side for drivers. But today’s smaller, hotter-running engines pose significant challenges to lubricants. The latest is a phenomenon called low-speed pre-ignition […]

Tech Blog 101: What is the Most Important Physical Property of a Lubricant?

Viscosity is the Most Important Physical Property of a Lubricant There are other physical properties, too, such as temperature performance, shear stability, water resistance and volatility, all of which can be managed for optimal lubricant performance using appropriate base-stock formulations and additive packages. Viscosity is the most important physical property of a lubricant. How the viscosity of a fluid reacts to changes in temperature, pressure or speed determines how well a fluid can perform the basic functions of a lubricant. Viscosity is the property that causes honey and water to flow differently when poured: they have different viscosities from each […]

Can I Use the Same Oil Filter Twice?

Useful Information About Oil Filters In theory, your oil filter has a simple job: capture wear-causing contaminants and hold them in the filter media so they don’t run amok throughout your engine. But lots of factors can throw a wrench into this plan, which can raise questions about oil filters and filtration. Here are some of the most common. Can I use the same oil filter twice? The oil filter is designed to capture contaminants and hold them within the filter media. Over time, the media fills with dirt particles, agglomerated soot, metal particles and other junk. If the filter […]
