Advanced Protection for Motorized
At on time, the word "scooter"
conjured up visions of underpowered, noisy, smoky, ill-handling,
bicycle-like machines. Although low in cost and offering excellent
fuel economy, they were primarily seen only on college campuses
and in trendy tourist locales. Most featured single cylinder,
air-cooled 50 to 150cc engines capable of reaching speeds
of up to 35-40 mph.
Today's scooters offer greatly
improved handling and exceptional performance, while maintaining
their affordability and excellent fuel efficiency. Their popularity
has skyrocketed in recent years, and the scooter market is
one of the fastest growing segments in the transportation
industry. In fact, scooter sales increased 20 percent last
year, with similar growth projected for 2007. Today's scooters
range in size from 50 to 600+ cc's and utilize high-tech engine
designs and advanced system controls. Some models are capable
of obtaining road speeds in excess of 100 mph. Because these
advancements place additional strain on the equipment, today's
high-tech scooters demand high quality lubricants specifically
formulated to address the special needs found in scooter applications:
Shear Stability -
High engine rpms common to scooter applications increase shear,
causing conventional lubricants to lose viscosity and reduce
their ability to control wear, resulting in shorter engine
Thermal Stability -
The operating temperatures of scooter engines fluctuate greatly,
especially with air-cooled engines. Elevated temperatures
cause the oil to quickly break down and shorten its service
life. High temperatures also cause the oil to lose viscosity,
minimizing its ability to control wear.
Transmission and Gear
Box Compatibility - In many scooter applications,
the engine and transmission and/or gear box share the same
oil reservoir, exposing the oil to mechanical shearing forces
and permanent viscosity loss as it passes through the contact
areas within the gear sets.
- Some scooters utilize a frictional clutch to engage
and disengage the engine from the drivetrain. In many cases,
this clutch is immersed in the same oil used in the engine
and transmission. Frictional compatibility must exist between
the oil and the clutch to prevent excessive slippage and extend
10W-40 Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Scooter Oil (ASO) is
formulated specifically to meet the special needs of today's
high-tech air and water-cooled four-stroke motorized scooters,
offering unsurpassed wear protection and friction reduction
for longer equipment life and cooler operating temperatures.
Its exceptional shear stability ensures consistent viscosity
protection and provides additional protection for transmissions
and gear boxes, while its friction modifier-free formulation
ensures wet clutch compatibility and smooth clutch operation.
A special anti-corrosion additive package provides long-term
protection during periods of inactivity and storage.
10W-40 Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Scooter Oil is recommended
for air- and water-cooled four-stroke motorized scooter engines
calling for a 10W-40 viscosity, as well as transmissions and
gear boxes calling for a 10W-40 motor oil, including Honda,
Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, Vespa, Aprilia, Piaggio, Benelli,
Vento, Kymco, Tank and TGB. It is recommended for the longest
drain interval recommended by the equipment manufacturer.
- Superior wear protection
- Cool engine operation
- Controls lubricant foaming
- Exceptional shear stability
- Reduced oil consumption and deposit formation
- Excellent protection in temperature extremes
- Improved fuel economy
- Wet clutch compatible
- Long-term protection against rust and

Why Motor Oil Deteriorates
It is common knowledge
that, at some point, engine oil must be changed. It's something
that is preached relentlessly to vehicle owners by vehicle
manufacturers, quick lubes and oil companies. But consumers
are widely unaware of what exactly makes oil changes necessary.
Many factors contribute
to a motor oil's demise, but it is essentially the accumulation
of contaminants in the oil and chemical changes in the oil
itself that make a motor unfit for further service. With time,
it is inevitable that the oil will be contaminated by dirt
or sludge, or succumb to the extreme pressures or temperatures
found inside an engine. AMSOIL Motor Oils are formulated with
the industry's most advanced synthetic base stocks and additive
packages to combat the forces that deteriorate conventional
What is the NOACK Volatility
Volatization is a term used to describe
what happens to a fluid as it is heated to the point it begins
to "boil off." Upon reaching a certain temperature,
oil will begin to lose some of its lighter weight molecules
as they "boil off" and leave heavier weight molecules
behind. Not only does this cause higher oil consumption, this
process can also cause increased viscosity making the oil
more difficult to circulate through the lubrication system.
Quality Takes Priority at AMSOIL
The AMSOIL chemical
laboratory plays an important role in the daily operations
at AMSOIL headquarters. The lab fulfills tech service requests,
performs competitor testing and comparisons, and works on
the research and development of products at AMSOIL. One of
the most important jobs at the lab is quality control. AMSOIL
is known for formulating high-quality products and the AMSOIL
chemists ensure that everything coming in and going out meets
AMSOIL standards. How do they do it? (read

AMSOIL INC. products are used in full compliance with the

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
