AMSOIL President and CEO Al Amatuzio founded his company on the same principles that defined his career
as a jet fighter squadron commander – excellence, integrity and strong leadership. In 1972, the breakthrough
came. AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil, the result of years of research and inspired by aerospace technology,
became the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute service requirements.
It outperformed conventional oils on all counts, signaling a new age in lubrication science. Today, virtually
every other motor oil manufacturer has recognized the superiority of synthetic lubricants and followed the AMSOIL
lead with introductions of synthetic motor oils of their own.
