AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic OilExcels in API Sequence IIIF  Testing!

OBJECTIVE
Subject AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil  (ATM) to an independent API Sequence IIIF Test to determine its effectiveness in preventing deposit formation and providing wear protection in high temperature  conditions.

The Sequence IIIF test is a stringent API SL, ILSAC GF-3 test designed to  measure oil thickening and piston deposits in high temperature service, as well  as provide information on valve train wear. The test is designed to emulate high-speed service under high ambient conditions.AMSOIL Synthetic Oil will save you money. Industry testing shows fuel economy increases of 5% and more using AMSOIL Synthetic Oil. Other benefits include lower emissions, reduced engine wear, fewer repairs, and an engine that lasts longer. Less friction in the engine from AMSOIL Synthetic Oil gives your vehicle these benefits.


SPECIAL CONDITIONS
Because AMSOIL is formulated to  provide superior performance over extended drain intervals, testing was allowed  to continue for 240 straight hours, three times the length of the standard Sequence IIIF test. 

TEST PROCEDURE
Testing is conducted with a  1996 model Buick 3800 Series II, water-cooled, four-cycle, V-6 engine. The test engine is an overhead valve design (OHV) with a single camshaft operating the  intake and exhaust valves through pushrods and hydraulic valve lifters in a slider-follower arrangement, and it has one intake and one exhaust valve per  cylinder. Induction is performed through a modified GM port fuel injection system with the air-to-fuel ratio set to 15:1.

Running unleaded gasoline, testing begins with a 10-minute initial oil leveling procedure before slowly  working its way up to test speed, temperature and load conditions. Testing  continues at 100 bhp, 3600 rpm and 155° C oil temperature for 80 hours with oil checks performed every 10 hours. Kinematic viscosity increase and wear metals  (Cu, Pb and Fe) are evaluated at every 10-hour interval.

At the end of 80 hours, all six pistons are inspected for deposits and varnish, camshaft and lifters are measured for wear and oil screen plugging is evaluated.

AMSOIL Synthetic Oil will save you money. Industry testing shows fuel economy increases of 5% and more using AMSOIL Synthetic Oil. Other benefits include lower emissions, reduced engine wear, fewer repairs, and an engine that lasts longer. Less friction in the engine from AMSOIL Synthetic Oil gives your vehicle these benefits.

TEST RESULTS
Even at three times the standard test  length, AMSOIL 10W-30 performed three times better than the test limit in the  area of kinematic viscosity increase, and it excelled in all areas of the test. AMSOIL 10W-30 Motor Oil kept viscosity increase, wear, deposits and varnish to a  minimum. The pictures below demonstrate the superior protection provided by AMSOIL Motor Oil throughout 240 straight hours of Sequence IIIF testing.

While conventional motor oils tend to thicken and lose their lubricating effectiveness, AMSOIL Motor Oils are formulated to maintain their viscosities over extended drain intervals. The results of the Sequence IIIF test clearly demonstrate the long drain capability of AMSOIL 10W-30 Motor Oil. Even  after being subjected to a triple length Sequence IIIF test, AMSOIL 10W-30  performed three times better than the standard test limits. The competitor's  motor oil shows dramatic viscosity increase in less than half the t

The greatest overall load concentration and stress are placed on the piston skirts and rings on the thrust sides of the pistons as they move down, contributing to heavier deposits than the anti-thrust sides. Even after being subjected to the Sequence IIIF test for three times the  standard test length, the pistons (above) lubricated by AMSOIL 10W-30 Motor Oil  show minimal deposits and varnish. In fact, upon close inspection, the original piston machine markings are still visible on both sides of the pistons. This  superior protection provided by AMSOIL Motor Oils extends the lives of both old  and new vehicles, even in severe driving conditions.

Even at three times standard Sequence IIIF test length, the oil pan, screen and valves showed no signs of deposits, oxidation or plugging. By keeping engines clean and deposit free, AMSOIL Motor Oils effectively reduce wear and keep engines running smoothly for extended drain intervals.
