purpose of the Preferred Customer program is personal use,"
said Dan Gorski, international sales representative. "Almost
all of our Dealers who are successful started out buying for
their own personal use."
Upgrading to Dealer
status gives Preferred Customers a business of their own.
It's an opportunity to earn extra money. First, income increases
through sales of AMSOIL products. Unlike Preferred Customers,
Dealers also sponsor other Preferred Customers and Dealers,
and pursue retail and commercial accounts - all of which earns

leaves many people little job security, and angst for retirement
income. An AMSOIL Dealership is the perfect answer. Dealers
can spend as much time and energy on their business as they
want. The more time and effort they put into their Dealerships,
the more profits they generate and the more security they
have in a world that is changing quickly. As a Dealer, even
illness or inability to work for a period of time does not

Don Smith, Fredericksburg,
Iowa, became a Preferred Customer about two years ago.
"I was leery
of using AMSOIL motor oil," Smith said. "I never
knew anyone who used it."
Smith is an ASE
certified master mechanic diesel truck technician and mechanic
of about 15 years. He started building his own shop, Smith
Repair, around the same time he became a Preferred Customer
and started leaning more about synthetic motor oils.
Last July, after
attending the AMSOIL 30th Convention, he upgraded to a Dealership.
Smith got an in-depth
informational presentation on CD and also gleaned important
technical information through reading the Action News
magazine, he said.
"I found you
can be a top-notch mechanic and not know all that much about
lubrication," Smith said. "It's amazing how little
people know about the lubrication they use to protect what
is essentially their second largest investment." Second,

has been a bigger project than he envisioned and he's counting
on the income he makes from building his AMSOIL business to
offset some of the costs.

all of his life and is known by most people in town. That
works to his advantage, he said, because they trust him not
to steer them wrong.

"Installing AMSOIL is really a big benefit. It's made
the difference between selling a lot of oil and selling a
little oil." He now has some commercial accounts, as
well, Smith said.

for their life. "You need to have a back up Plan B in

that building an AMSOIL business takes hard work and the willingness
to gain the knowledge needed to seperate people from their
old ideas. "In the future, it's going to be more and
more synthetics," he said. "It takes perseverance.
You've gotta keep hitting it. It's a challenge and I believe
I'm up to it.

thing about Preferred Customers who upgrade to Dealers is
that they want businesses," Gorski said. "They're
going to be selling." These are the people who make a
commitment to making their AMSOIL business profitable, he
Ordering an AMSOIL
Business Manual (G-700) is vital to their success, Gorski
said. It guides them how to build their businesses. Along
with advice and guidance from their sponsors, Dealers also
become eligible for T-1 certification. That's basically "an
open book test," Gorski said. It's included in the business
manual. "We (the company) know that the Dealer has the
body of knowledge to offer good service," he said.
Dealers also are
eligible to receive leads to new prospects through the company,
as well as becoming eligible for trade show and racing co-op
assistance through the company after they are T-1 certified.
Synthetic Motor Oils offer the longest drain intervals
on the market, unsurpassed protection and performance that
effectively extends equipment life and improved fuel economy,
saving customers money at the pump and reducing the nation's
dependence on foreign oil.
"AMSOIL INC. warrants that the use of its lubricants will not cause mechanical damage to any mechanically sound equipment when AMSOIL INC. products are used in full compliance with the company's recommendations and instructions."
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
