Customer question: “Our fleet vehicles are used for Security Patrol. Vehicle engines run 22 out of 24 hours a days, most of the time idling to run the heater or the A/C. We are not sure if we should track engine hours or mileage to determine our oil change service. We want to extend our oil change service. How can AMSOIL help?”
- Current products & service: Castrol motor oil and OEM spec oil filter, oil service every 5,000 kms
- Current oil change tracked with hours and/or kilometer odometer reading
Dealer recommendation: Switch to AMSOIL Signature Series and use AMSOIL EaO absolute efficient oil filter. Take an oil sample at mileage intervals at 15,000 kms and then 25,000 kms.
- Both oil samples proved that AMSOIL was good for continued service until the next service interval
- At 25,000 kms the customer chose to change both the engine oil and oil filter, even though our last oil analysis showed no reason to do so. The customer saw 5X’s the previous oil change service interval and was happy with these results.
Note: The AMSOIL signature series 5W-20 and EaO engine filter are both warrantied by AMSOIL INC. for 40,000 kms. or one year when used in gasoline engines.
Overall Results/ Customer Satisfaction:
AMSOIL proved to extend the customer’s oil change service, and also answered the question that the oil change service can be tracked by odometer reading alone. Additionally, AMSOIL reduced the overall cost of material for oil change service by 38% and freed up more time for staff to perform other proactive maintenance.
