ESULTS OF A TWO-YEAR SURVEY of quick-lubes reveals that quick-lube operators need
not worry about losing money to extended drain intervals when they sell synthetic

AMSOIL XL Extended Life Motor Oils are formulated to provide the best possible protection
for 7500 miles or six months - and still increase profits for quick lubes. When
customers see the difference in starting ability at high and low temperatures, increased
fuel efficiency, and lack of engine wear throughout the life of the drain interval,
they'll return for AMSOIL motor oils time after time.
The survey refuted two myths about customers who use synthetic oils: that they
tend not to purchase additional products or services when having their oil changed;
and that they tend to spend less on such products and services than customers who use

The survey found that 56 percent of customers who chose synthetic oils also
purchased other products or services, and they spend nearly twice as much on those items.
AMSOIL offers a full line of other superior products that complement the quality
synthetic oils, and that last longer and work more efficiently than those of competitors.
