Formula car happy using 0W30 Synthetic Motor Oil
AMSOIL Products Help Formula S.A.E. Racing Team Compete

Over the past year the Ohio State University has used and abused the AMSOIL product in our race motors. We have been through many oils before and our previous oil of choice was Mobil 1 0W-30. After contacting an AMSOIL representative our success with the product and the company as a whole has not stopped. After using Mobil1 with great success for a long time we were getting concerned with a couple of key issues. The two biggest questions were “Is this really the best oil for our applications?” and “Is there another oil out there with comparable quality and performance without the huge price tag?”

Those are two questions that most individuals ask themselves at some point and on a cutting edge race team those two questions are asked everyday. Unlike many other cutting edge race teams though, we have a finite budget. Therefore we do pay attention to cost and bang per buck. That is where the price issue comes into the second question.

We had used many different oils in the past (Pennzoil, Valvoline, Klotz racing oil, and other major brands) but we have seen far more benefits working with AMSOIL. Mobil 1 gave us good oil in their 0W-30, but they fell short in many areas of need. After repeated attempts to call them and work out something where we could test oil and promote their product, they were nowhere to be found. Apparently they didn’t need a university race team to join their Mobil 1 team. After getting excellent treatment from the people at AMSOIL and trying the oil in our dynos we haven’t looked back since.

More comprehensive and technical comparative analysis is on the slate in the near future but so far some conclusions can definitely be made. Our motors run well over 12,000 rpm and to the touch, smell and sight the AMSOIL product has performed as well and better than any oil we have had through our motors. We have seen their bold claims about their product stacking up, and we definitely put them to the test. We compete with over 120 teams worldwide (all colleges around the world). We have the future of the race industry, corporate automotive world and aftermarket engineers on our teams. There is a lot riding on the performance and quality approval of our oil. Competition has gotten tighter and tighter and AMSOIL has shown to be more than satisfactory in our power needs, engine protection and fuel economy. We have hopes of sending a sample of oil off to be analyzed after some runs in the next year, doing a simple “burn” test with some pans and a range of competitor’s oil, and possibly even some direct comparison work on the dyno. We design, build, test and compete with a new car every single year so time is tight but AMSOIL and the people with AMSOIL have blown away our expectations. We have tried many of their other products also and have seen similar levels of performance and quality. Some data collected below is shown for viewing and some comments are made within. Thanks AMSOIL!! (Special thanks to AMSOIL Dealer Sean Aughey!!)

Comments on the AMSOIL Product

Our tests show AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil dramatically outperforms popular conventional and synthetic motor oils in many areas below.

Fuel Efficient Formula

Your claims have been reinforced from our experience in this area. In the fuel efficiency portion of our competition this product was part of the puzzle for improvements.

High Temperature Protection

Your claims have been reinforced from our experience in this area. Our motor is water cooled and running over 12,000 rpm at some points. Yet the 0W-30 oil has been satisfactory even when dyno water temperatures are at scary levels.

Low Temperature Protection

We don’t see many of these conditions.

Heat Stability

Your claims have been reinforced from our experience in this area.

Clean Engine Formula

Your claims have been reinforced from our experience in this area.

Shear Stability

Your claims have been reinforced from our experience in this area.

Service Life

Even in times when we were testing one of the race cars and forgot to change the oil for an extended amount of time the AMSOIL 0W-30 product has held up. I guess the only other thing I could say is that I wish you carried an oil filter for a Honda 600cc CBR-F3 because we would be sure to try it out. We thank you for your support and hope that we can give you additional relevant feedback in the future.

Take Care,
