How Installers Profit with AMSOIL

Industry reports indicate that the overall North American lubricants market is shrinking, but synthetics’ share of the market continues to grow. It’s evident that consumers now generally accept that synthetics are better than petroleum oils. Petroleum oils have risen from under $1 per quart up to the $2 – $3 per quart range, and even higher in most convenience stores. With the initial-cost gap narrowing, the performance differences are becoming more apparent.

Statistics show that people are keeping their vehicles longer than they used to. Consumers want to put off the expense of a new vehicle for as long as possible, and synthetic lubricants can help them extend the life of their equipment.

How Installers Make More Money

The price structure for AMSOIL OE and XL Synthetic Motor Oils was developed to be profit table for installers, while offering value to motorists as well. The lower price point for OE Motor Oils enables motorists to make an easy transition from petroleum to synthetic motor oil while the XL line provides excellent profitability for installers and even more value for consumers. Though profit vary based on drain intervals and typical oil change prices, OE and XL are clearly profitable recommendations and excellent choices for customers.

The chart shows how a properly priced AMSOIL oil change boosts your bottom line while simultaneously providing all the benefit of a premium synthetic motor oil, including better wear protection, improved fuel economy, easier cold weather starts, excellent thermal stability and cleaner engine operation.

Four Important Trends In Today’s Passenger Car Market

The Trend Toward Synthetic Motor Oils

North American demand for synthetic motor oils is growing. Increasingly stringent CAFE requirements and increased awareness of the benefit of synthetics are two of the drivers behind this growing demand. AMSOIL OE is an entry-level, full-synthetic motor oil designed for motorists seeking to move up from conventional motor oil and take advantage of the benefit of synthetic motor oil. AMSOIL XL offers additional engine protection for motorists desiring the convenience of extended service life.

The Continuing Environmental Trend
Recommended: AMSOIL XL

Environmental pressures have placed greater demands on oil formulators to improve the quality of their products. AMSOIL offers a model program that lube center operators can embrace which is not only environmentally wise, but economically suited for profit-mindedness as well: the AMSOIL XL Program, with drain intervals of up to 12,000 miles/12 months.

The Trend Toward Performance
Recommended: AMSOIL OE and AMSOIL XL

Drastic changes in engine design, with smaller, hotter engine compartments, tighter tolerances and emissions restrictions, continue to place higher demands on lubricants. At the same time, vehicle manufacturers seek extended drains, cleaner engines, improved fuel economy, reduced oil consumption and better wear protection.

The Trend Toward Extended Drain Intervals
Recommended: AMSOIL XL

Many lube operators are beginning to see the trend toward extended drain intervals as an opportunity, servicing customers who want the convenience without sacrificing protection. Properly priced, offering premium extended-drain oil frees up time and service bays, allowing shops to service more regular customers. AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oils have a service life of up to 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first (or longer when relying on factory installed oil life monitoring systems).
