Sold on AMSOIL – Now He Is A Dealer

DEALER: ‘EVERYTHING RUNS BETTER, LASTS LONGER’

How could it be you might ask? The answer lies in the devotion to manufacturing products of the highest possible quality and not reduced to increase profits. The position for a company to do that is risky these days but it’s why AMSOIL customers travel many miles to buy. About a quarter of our Sioux Falls customers come from areas over 25 miles away.

Dealer Robert Lolato of Orleans, Ontario, Canada has been a believer in AMSOIL products for more than 20 years.

He started using AMSOIL products in 1985. “I can tell you firsthand that my experience with AMSOIL products has been phenomenal,” he said. “Everything runs better and lasts longer. That’s why I decided in 2013 to become a Dealer — to help other people experience the benefits of using AMSOIL products.”

Loaded truck for towing

Lolato uses his 2009 GMC* 2500 HD Crew Cab* short-bed 4X4 diesel truck to haul a fifth-wheel camper. He installed AMSOIL Premium 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil (DME) and an Ea® Oil Filter at the first oil change.

At 50,000 kilometers, he installed AMSOIL synthetic lubricants throughout the drivetrain of the truck:

Front Differential: AMSOIL Severe Gear® 75W-90 Synthetic Extreme Pressure (EP) Gear Lube (SVG)

Transfer Case: AMSOIL Signature Series  Fuel-Efficient Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATL)

Transmission: AMSOIL Signature Series Fuel-Efficient Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATL)

Rear Differential: AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-90 Synthetic Extreme Pressure (EP) Gear Lube (SVG) All

Grease Fittings: AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Purpose Grease (GLC)

Fuel Treatment: AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean (ADF) in spring, summer and fall and AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean + Cold Flow (DFC) in the winter months. When he tows the 12,000-pound fifth-wheel, Lolato uses AMSOIL Diesel Cetane Boost (ACB).

“My truck has 149,000 kilometers, and I tow a 38-foot fifth-wheel in the hot summer with no problem,” Lolato said. “And it starts in winter at minus 45 degrees without plugging it in.”

He changes the oil about every 15,000 kilometers, depending on fuel dilution. “I am getting better fuel mileage,” Lolato said. “There’s no lack of power, even when towing in hilly terrain, and it runs cool in the hot summer months when towing.”

His rig sparks interest and questions about the quality of AMSOIL products. “When people see my truck with the AMSOIL stickers on the back window, I show them the clean tailpipe on the truck and they can’t believe it’s a diesel. I also tell them the fuel mileage I get on the highway (25 mpg, not towing) and how cool the engine and transmission are when towing (78°C transmission, 100°C engine).”

Lolato also uses AMSOIL products front to back in his 2006 Mazda 3* hatchback with a 2.3L engine and his 2017 Hyundai Elantra* with a 2.0L engine.

Value Saves you Money

I’m always quick to correct a prospect when they say, “Well AMSOIL is great but only for those who are in the upper income brackets.” – Not true. Actually if I had to put a label on a majority of our “non-enthusiast” customers it would be the thrifty type who don’t let a dollar go to waste. AMSOIL saves money in so many aspects. Try and see for yourself.

Testimonial: Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis Grease

Recently our customer Mike Ahlschlager reported pulling his truck with 1,200,000 miles into Dakota Alignment. The mechanic asked, “When did you change your king pins? We usually do that for you and there is no record for this one?”

Mike replied that he never had the need for service on this truck which the mechanic was totally puzzled. He says it’s because of the AMSOIL Polymeric Truck Grease. No matter the environmental conditions, the AMSOIL polymeric truck grease stays put. Even under constant water washout. Mike said since he started using AMSOIL all of his maintenance issues have decreased significantly or totally vanished!

Here’s the official data from AMSOIL regarding their revolutionary Polymeric grease.
Both the NLGI1 and 2 are stocked in the Sioux Falls AMSOIL Store.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease (GPTR1, GPTR2) delivers excellent wear protection and extreme-pressure performance over extended service intervals in medium- and heavy-duty applications. It combines select base oils, proprietary synthetic polymeric chemistry, an advanced additive package and a lithium-complex thickener for excellent impact resistance, reliable contaminant control and maximum longevity.

 

Extreme Impact Resistance
Greasable components on heavy-duty trucks and equipment regularly operate in severe-service, extreme-pressure environments. Frequent high-load operation increases the potential for grease to pound out, which can leave components vulnerable to increased wear and corrosion. AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is formulated to deliver maximum pound-out resistance. Its exceptional adhesion and cohesion properties help keep the grease in place to seal out water and contaminants and provide a protective barrier between metal components.

Long Service Life
Most trucking companies work to maximize the amount of time tractors are on the road, and inferior greases are not engineered to perform over extended service intervals. The long intervals truckers demand can result in components being left unprotected because the grease has squeezed out of place. AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is engineered to remain intact for maximum protection over extended service intervals. Owners/operators can be assured their equipment is protected when the job demands additional time on the road between maintenance checks.

Superior Rust and Corrosion Protection
Over-the-road trucks and commercial equipment operate in all types of weather. Water, snow and ice are encountered regularly, and they combine with salt and other road-deicing chemicals to promote accelerated rust and corrosion on chassis and fifth-wheel components. AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease clings tenaciously to metal surfaces, helping to keep rain, snow and other corrosive contaminants from penetrating greasable components. It is formulated with an advanced additive package designed to combat the harmful effects of roadway contaminants, helping components last longer and saving fleets money.

Maximum Extreme-Pressure Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is engineered for maximum protection in extreme-pressure applications. It features a sophisticated additive package and exclusive synthetic polymeric technology designed to provide long-term protection for heavily loaded components. AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease’s high Timken OK Load and excellent Four-Ball Weld Test results prove its superior performance in extreme-pressure environments.

Ideal for Fleets
AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is ideal for mixed fleets that operate in severe service. It provides exceptional protection and long service life for a broad range of applications.

Cost-Effective Choice
AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease offers enhanced protection for extended component life, reducing replacement costs. In addition, its long service life reduces the need for frequent re-application (or requires less grease at each servicing), reducing maintenance costs.

Reduced Environmental Impact
Less-tenacious greases are ejected from greased components and pollute the surrounding environment. AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is formulated to stay in place for long service intervals, resulting in less grease pollution and reduced grease consumption. In addition, AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is formulated without the use of barium, chlorine, antimony or sulfur, which are all potentially harmful to the environment.

APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is recommended for heavy-duty over-the-road tractors and trailers, delivery fleets, dump trucks, refuse haulers, utility fleets, emergency service vehicles, sewer and septic trucks, snow removal vehicles, wreckers, municipal service vehicles, equipment haulers, cement mixer trucks, airport support vehicles and more.

AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Grease provides exceptional performance in heavily loaded chassis grease points, wheel bearings, axle assemblies, universal joints, pivot pins, fifth-wheel hitch plates, steering linkages, spring pins, king pins, ball joints, water pump bearings and other greased heavy-duty components.

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is compatible with many other types of grease. However, it is recommended that when changing greases, the equipment be cleaned of the old grease or flushed with a liberal amount of AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Grease while the mechanism is in operation. Closely monitor the system for any inconsistencies. Any grease compatibility questions should be referred to your AMSOIL Dealer or AMSOIL INC.

*Note: AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Grease is designed to remain in place for long service intervals. The same properties that provide its enhanced tenacity can also make it harder to pump. A heavy follower plate may be necessary when pumping grease from larger package sizes. AMSOIL Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is not recommended for automatic or centralized lubrication systems unless the system is designed to pump a tackier grease.
