Hi, I’m Dave - a former Ford Truck/Automotive Engineer with 40 years of combined professional experience working with lubrication systems and using and promoting AMSOIL products. My trucks, heavy equipment, farm and powersports vehicles experience extreme use, and I use AMSOIL products in every single one. Enjoy the site!

Why is AMSOIL so expensive?

AMSOIL tends to be a bit pricier than other synthetic oils at retail prices. But, the old adage is true: "you get what you pay for." Purchasing mediocre lubricants can end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars throughout the life of your vehicles and equipment, even though they're cheaper up-front. Lubrication-related problems (the leading cause of bearing failure) can wreak havoc on your engine and drivetrain components.

When you're comparing synthetic oil prices it's also beneficial to do your own research and compare technical specifications and independent testing.

AMSOIL publishes extensive product data technical bulletins for all their products and clearly states the technical properties of each particular product in reference to the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials).

With those standards & testing results, you can compare AMSOIL to other products that also publish their ASTM test data.

When it comes down to it, AMSOIL outperforms all other brands in numerous lab tests and even just by comparing manufacturer-provided specifications. Though you might pay a bit more up front, you'll save money in the long run with reduced maintenance costs, extended drain intervals, and maximized service life in your vehicles and equipment.

AMSOIL is engineered for enthusiasts seeking maximum protection and performance. AMSOIL products are precision formulated with cutting-edge technology and a longstanding devotion to making the world's best motor oil. The result is engine protection that blows the doors off the highest industry standards.

For more than 25 years, I've purchased and used AMSOIL products in all my vehicles, diesel trucks, powersports equipment, excavators, and hand-held equipment. When I started using AMSOIL, I examined engine components myself by doing complete engine teardowns and rebuilds.

Using ultra-premium quality synthetic oils from AMSOIL has saved me a lot of time and money due to many factors, including extended drain intervals, unscheduled maintenance costs and repairs, and dramatically reduced downtime and wear and tear on my vehicles and equipment.

My Experience with AMSOIL Engineers

I was in a meeting with one of AMSOIL's engineers several years ago, and he personally told me when their raw material suppliers have new additive formulations and base oils, they come to AMSOIL first because they know AMSOIL won't bother asking about the cost at first. Their suppliers know AMSOIL prioritizes performance parameters and specifications. It's only after thorough testing of the new materials, provided they meet and exceed performance, quality, and protection standards, that AMSOIL begins to discuss costs with their supplier.
