LASH POINT IS DEFINED as the temperature at which an oil gives off vapors that
can be ignited with a flame held over the oil. The lower the flash point the
greater tendency for the oil to suffer vaporization loss at high temperatures
and to burn off on hot cylinder walls and pistons. The flash point can be an
indicator of the quality of the base stock used. The higher the flash point
the better. 400 F is the minimum to prevent possible high consumption.
Now, looking at the chart, you can see that the flash points of most competitive
brand oils fall very close to that 400 degree minimum range. If it were my
vehicle, I wouldn't want to drive around knowing that I was pushing the limit
of my oil every time I got on the highway. With AMSOIL Synthetic Oils you never
have to worry about that. With flash points well above those of competitors and
also well above even the most excessive temperature ranges of high performance
vehicles, you can be secure in the knowledge that AMSOIL Synthetic Oils won't
let you down.
