Here's some company history.
Amsoil strives to be the best, period.

Amsoil has been making synthetic oils for over 45 years.
Since the beginning Amsoil has been leading the synthetic oil 
industry and the others have been following and playing catch-up.
After all that time Amsoil still leads and they still follow!

The Company of Firsts 
  AMSOIL has a documented history of innovation and leadership.

  • First to develop an API-rated 100 percent synthetic motor oil.
  • First to introduce the concept of "extended drain intervals" with a recommended 25,000-mile/1-year drain interval.
  • First U.S. company to utilize the NOACK volatility test as a standard of performance excellence.
  • First to produce synthetic motor oils for diesel engines, racing engines, turbo and marine engines.
  • First to introduce synthetic oils that legitimately contribute to improving fuel efficiency.
  • First to manufacture synthetic gear lube for automotive use.
  • First to manufacture a 100:1 pre-mix synthetic 2-cycle oil.
  • First to manufacture a synthetic automatic transmission fluid for automotive use.
During Lieutenant Colonel Al Amatuzio's 25 years as an award-winning jet fighter pilot, he gained a solid appreciation for the extraordinary lubricants that protected the engines of the jets he flew. He knew that only these lubricants, synthetic lubricants, could stand up to the demanding operating conditions of jet engines and the severe temperature extremes they encounter.  
He knew also that the same outstanding performance benefits            
synthetic lubricants provide for jet engines would prove invaluable
 to car, truck and other internal combustion engines.

In the mid-1960s, Al Amatuzio began an intense period of 
research and development. He assembled the industry's most 
knowledgeable chemists and directed the formulation of the first 
synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum 
Institute service requirements.

The introduction of AMSOIL synthetic motor oil in 1972 set 
all-new standards for motor oil quality. AMSOIL synthetic 
motor oil outperformed conventional petroleum motor oils on 
all counts. It was clear from the start that this innovative product
 would play a major role in engine performance and engine life.

Today, virtually every other motor oil manufacturer has recognized the superiority of synthetic lubricants and has followed the AMSOIL lead with introductions of synthetic motor oils of their own. They spend millions of dollars advertising their "new" and "revolutionary" products. No one, however, can match AMSOIL experience and technological know-how. And no one delivers products like AMSOIL. 
Accept no substitutes -- AMSOIL is "The First in Synthetics."
