Signature Series cleans up the competition
In general, the higher an oil’s TBN, the better its ability to neutralize contaminants such as combustion by-products and acidic materials. Higher TBN oils neutralize a greater amount of acidic material, which results in longer oil life and cleaner engines.
TBN levels decrease as the oil remains in service. When the level reaches a point where it can no longer protect against corrosion, the oil must be changed.
The Total Base Number Test (ASTM D2896) uses a series of chemical reactions to measure the alkaline additives in a motor oil. We recognize the value of formulating motor oils with high TBN, and AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil features the highest TBN of the oils tested.
AMSOIL Signature Series is fortified with a heavy treatment of detergent additive and it delivers 30% more acid neutralizing power1 than Mobil 1, and 36% more than Royal Purple, helping engines to stay cleaner, longer.
Meanwhile Schaeffers has their dealers trying to convince you by using that 1940’s stationary bearing unit which is for grease and any oil can pass if you have the wrong additives. (It’s like watching Tim Conway doing his old man routine.)
The AMSOIL Advantage
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants feature a large dose of quality additives that consistently deliver high TBN for the life of the oil. They neutralize acidic contaminants and keep them in suspension to maximize engine protection. AMSOIL lubricants use detergent and dispersant additives to significantly reduce sludge and carbon deposit formation. In the Total Base Number Test (ASTM D2896), AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil demonstrated the highest TBN of the oils featured in the test, helping it deliver reliable protection for extended drain intervals.

Local Omaha note: The performance you get with AMSOIL justifies the extra cost although our XL product line which is similar costs less than several ones on the chart above. If you are not looking for optimum performance or protection or extra years on the car then save your money and buy Dollar General’s motor oil. If the public strictly bought on the merits of truth and disclosure, AMSOIL would out-sell the rest.
