Providing more information to our customers than any other lubricant manufacture on the market, AMSOIL is ever searching for the best and most cost effective lubricants.
Below is a Voice Over PowerPoint presentation explaining some of the reasons why AMSOIL has reformulated the XL (Extended Life) synthetic oils.

In the V.O.P.P you will hear Dan Peterson, AMSOIL Inc Technical Director and Patricia Stoll, AMSOIL Business Unit Manager talk about new and exciting technologies used in the AMSOIL XL product. The new additive package with Extended Drain Boost Technology is just one feature that allows our customers even more performance and cost savings.
There were three primary drivers behind the reformulation of the new XL Series Oils. 1.) OEM’s have been increasing the oil drain interval recommendations in newer vehicle designs. 2.) The industry is now finally starting to report, people are driving their cars longer between oil changes. 3.) There have been new developments in oil technology and these new developments will allow us to exceed the new industry specifications from ILSAC, API and General Motors.
Longer drain intervals are better for the environment and more convenient for drivers. And as you know, AMSOIL has a long history of developing engine oil technology designed to protect your vehicles longer. The new XL Series formula was designed to safely extend oil drain intervals significantly beyond many OEM-recommended intervals and still provide excellent performance.
AMSOIL XL extended life synthetic motor oils are API SN and SN RC (Resource Conserving) Certified. AMSOIL XL also carries the new ILSAC GF-5 designation.
General Motors has also developed a new GM only oil specification called dexos1™. This specification was designed by GM to simplify their oil requirements as a global company in addition to providing a revenue stream. GM dexos1™ is designed to supersede previous GM specifications, including GM 6094M, GM 4718M and GM-LL-A-025. Initially, GM is only focusing on a SAE 5W-30 viscosity grade which will be backward compatible to all the listed GM specifications.

The reformulated AMSOIL XL series is formulated to meet the stringent requirements of GM dexos1. AMSOIL XL is one oil for all three key new gasoline engine oil specifications (PCMO).
Another change definitely worth noting is that the official XL Series drain interval is now: 10,000 miles/6 months, or longer when recommended in owners’ manuals or indicated by electronic oil life monitoring systems. Previously AMSOIL XL carried a 7500 mile or 6 month factory recommendation. The updated XL Series formula boasts a longer drain interval, which is made possible by extended drain boost technology. The new 10,000 mile drain interval is 33% longer than before, while the purchase price of XL Series remains unchanged!
AMSOIL XL Series oils, like all AMSOIL synthetic motor oils, employ high-quality synthetic base stocks and a unique additive chemistry that neutralize acids longer than conventional oils do. This extra additive package allows AMSOIL XL Series oils to provide superior protection and performance throughout the entire drain interval.
Lets look at pricing compared to the competition.
AMSOIL XL has a suggested retail pricing of $6.95 per quart.
Stopping by a local shopping mart I found some other branded oils on the market that will cost you more per year if you are stuck with the recommended 3,000 mile oil change. At $3.97 per quart you will need to do 3 times as many oil changes for 10,000 miles. Costing you over $11.91 per quart for that 10,000 mile oil change. This doesn’t even figure in your time, the cost of paying the quick lube, and the 3 extra filters to boot.
Here is a popular synthetic from that same store. Priced at $6.36 per quart, this synthetic doesn’t have a recommended drain, most quick lubes or automotive shops will recommend between 5 and 6,000 miles. For a 10,000 mile oil change AMSOIL XL is till a better buy. Using this synthetic will cost you $12.72 per quart for a 10,000 mile oil change.
