FAQ These questions are frequently asked either through email inquiries, by customers on-site, or other forms of correspondence.
What is datalogging?
Datalogging is recording your vehicles events through it's ECU and our software. Events such as temperatures, pressures, speeds, revolutions per minute etc.
Why would datalogging benefit me?
Datalogging will help you
understand what is going on with your vehicle. By recording and
analyzing vehicle occurrences, we can determine current problems
and also prevent future problems.
If you race your vehicle, datalogging can help substantiate your vehicle's situation at the track. By reviewing the events, you can do things such as change your shift points, launch points and affect your overall performance. If you need to upgrade fluids such as brake fluid, transmission fluid and engine oil, datalogging will let you know.
Do you have an oil lab?
No, CanadaSynthetics does not have
an oil lab. When we send oil out "to the lab", we send it to
Oil Analyzers Inc. They
perform all lab work for us and send us back a detailed report of
your car's status.
Is this an online store website?
No. Although Canada Synthetics is
an Amsoil dealer and you can purchase oils from us, this is an
independent service website offering more than oil such as
datalogging and lubrication services, including informational
awareness and news.
Is Canada Synthetics owned by Amsoil?
No, we are an independent company
and an independent dealer for Amsoil.
Then why only offer Amsoil products?
We have tested with all types of
oils. Before making the decision to use Amsoil, we went through
vigorous testing with many brands of oils. We found that Amsoil
constantly outperformed other oils whether in race conditions or
everyday conditions. Not only the engine oils, but their other
synthetic fluids such as brake fluid, coolant, gear oils and more.
We choose Amsoil for these and more reasons. Amsoil stands behind the product more than any other, and since we do a lot of testing with various applications, tech support is important to us. The tech support team at Amsoil is always available for us and always gives the right answers when we need them.
So, is Canada Synthetics biased towards Amsoil?
No, not at all. We recommend and
sell Amsoil, however, if we find that another oil performs better
in your, or our application, we will recommend the better. Our
first priority is the performance of the vehicle we are testing,
not the type of oil we put use.
