Pain at the Pump: Using the Right Oil to Stretch Your Gas Budget

Gas Price under $2 | AMSOIL Improves Gas MileageHyper-Inflation on Gas Prices

Gone are the days of $1.59 per gallon of gas. With current events of late, gas has topped $5.00 per gallon as the national average, with $8.00 per gallon anticipated by the end of summer. The pain doesn’t end at the pump. Due to crop shortages of corn for producing ethanol, we’re likely to see gas shortages in the near future if production channels are not adjusted via economic policy. Translated, gas is expected to continue to rise, indefinitely.

Gas prices have always been a source of contention among consumers. Seldom are drivers “happy” at the pump. With the current price trend, anyone driving a truck, a semi, an RV, or any other “gas guzzler” will feel the financial burden at each fill-up. Just think, an 80 gallon tank for a gasoline engine RV now costs over $400 to fill. That puts a damper on a lot of seasonal travel plans as we ease into the spring and summer months. But does it have to?

We may not be able to do much in controlling the price of gas per gallon. But we certainly can affect the number of gallons our engine burns each hour. How? By improving the efficiency of our engine. Here’s where a little bit of preventive maintenance “smarts” goes a long way. Change the kind of oil you use– not only the type, but the brand.

Improving Gas Mileage by Using AMSOIL

Synthetic oil, though it costs slightly more than conventional oil, goes a long way at improving fuel efficiency. That’s aside from the fact that you’ll likely spend less money on oil changes, overall, due to the extended time between oil changes using synthetic oil. Synthetic oil is engineered with consistent molecular structure and size, versus convention motor oil that has variable molecular size due to impurities. The smaller, consistent molecular size of synthetic oil means that your engine’s moving parts move closer together while still reducing friction. In turn, your engine cylinders get better compression which translates to more power for the same strokes. Consequently, you’ll burn less gas using synthetic oil as compared to conventional oil. Better gas mileage means less fuel burned for the same distance, which translates to savings at the pump.

That said, if you want to maximize your gas savings, use the best synthetic oil available. But wait a minute: How do you know which is the “best”? Every oil manufacturer claims to be. It can seem a bit misleading. It’s not just enough to say, “we’re the best.” Talk is cheap. To be meaningful, such a claim must be challenged and answered with a substantiated explanation of “why”.

The Efficiency Behind AMSOIL Synthetic Oil

Gas at $8 per gallonEnter AMSOIL, the “best of the best”. AMSOIL was the first synthetic oil to meet the engineering standards for use in automobiles. In itself, that’s bragging rights but not enough reason to forever after claim to be “the best”. Independent laboratory tests have show AMSOIL to outperform other synthetic oils which were later introduced by competitors. AMSOIL has had many “firsts” in the industry, and in pursuit of excellence, has consistently outpaced other oil producers in performance. The fact that such results are recorded by independent labs with no conflicts of interests give the claims credibility. Customer feedback and an ever-increasing customer base also reflects the saying, “the proof is in the pudding.”

So, to maximize your gas savings, change your oil type and your oil brand. Switch to synthetic oil, and make it AMSOIL. Then you can be sure you’re getting the best savings from the best oil from the best company! You can buy AMSOIL and receive personalized service from  Simple, isn’t it?
