Real-World Testing in Rigorous Las Vegas Cab Fleet

AMSOIL ATF Severe Service LogoAMSOIL is always eager to test their products in the field. To prove the worth of their Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF, they commissioned a third-party, independent test of this product in Las Vegas taxi cabs. The hard-driven cabs were run in city driving conditions in scorching temperatures for 100,000 miles. The AMSOIL Synthetic ATF samples were then tested in the Aluminum Beaker Oxidation Test (ABOT). This examines an ATF’s ability to resist oxidation. To meet the Chrysler ATF+4 specification, a new ATF must be able to resist oxidation after 500 hours in ABOT testing. As seen in the chart below, the AMSOIL Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF that had been in service for 100,000 miles of taxi cab service not only passed the ABOT test at 500 hours, but had another 300 hours in reserve!

Also shown below are the valve body and clutch plates from the car transmissions. These are a testament to AMSOIL ATF’s ability to resist sludge and varnish.

Strong Resistance to Oxidation

AMSOIL Synthetic ATF’s robust additive package resists oxidation and varnish formation over extended service and under extreme conditions as illustrated by the Las Vegas Taxi Field Study. The resistance to depositing means continuously clean transmission internals. Clean transmissions run cooler, shift reliably and last longer.

Synthetic Wear Defense

AMSOIL takes a multi-pronged approach to wear control. The synthetic formula brings reduced friction, high film strength, extreme pressure resistance and consistent operation in extreme temperatures. The sum of all of these defensive features is long transmission life.

Steady Performance in Extreme Heat or Cold

Temperature extremes can wreak havoc the operation of automatic transmissions. Regular ATF thickens in cold weather which hampers shifting and proper operation. Extreme heat and heavy loads can break down lesser ATF’s, ultimately leading to transmission failure. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Multi-Vehicle ATF is formulated to function normally in temperature extremes. With a -63F pour point, you can start out with confidence on the coldest mornings. In hot weather or under heavy towing AMSOIL ATF is shear stable and will not thin-out to compromise transmission protection.

Withstands the Rigors of Modern Transmissions

The automatic transmissions in modern car and trucks are more complex than ever. Today’s compact units have more speeds and utilize intricate electronics to assist operations. More than ever, reliable ATF performance is vital. AMSOIL’s Synthetic ATF formula delivers consistent torque transfer, static friction properties and smooth anti-shudder performance. Testing shows that that AMSOIL ATF performs almost like new after 100,000 miles of hard driving.

Mixing AMSOIL with Other Brands

AMSOIL Signature Series Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF is compatible with other brands of conventional, semi-synthetic and synthetic automatic transmission fluid. While you can safely mix AMSOIL Synthetic Oil with other brands, this will reduce the drain interval and performance capabilities of AMSOIL synthetic ATF.

The use of any aftermarket oil additives with AMSOIL Multi-Vehicle Synthetic ATF is definitely NOT recommended.

Service Life

Normal Service: AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Vehicle ATF is recommended for oil change intervals as stated by the vehicle owner’s manual or as indicated by the oil life monitoring system.

Severe Service*: Change at twice the suggested OEM severe service interval.

* Severe service: commercial, taxi or fleet vehicles, vehicles with more than 100,000 miles (160,000 km) without prior continuous use of AMSOIL ATF, frequent towing, snow-plowing, hauling or dusty condition operation.
