While watching an IHRA event on TV the other day I saw an oil name I've never seen before.

Amalie Oil
http://www.amalie.com/specsheets/1_pcmo.pdf

What's up with this stuff. I've searched and found nothing about this oil on this site.

Mind you I'm not interested in using it, I'm just wondering who's heard of it, and what's the deal with it? Curiosity mostly, brought on by this site [Big Grin]

It's been around a long time. Other than that I can't tell you much.

It's a cheap oil, apparently only available in the US. Probably no better or worse than Autolab from Canadian Tire or AutoPrix from Zellers, just a minimum specs oil and no more. Then again, I've only ever seen Amalie oil once at VIP Auto, and I think it was the non-detergent stuff. Bah, what do I know.

Napa sells it. It has another name but on the back of the bottle it says "Made by Amalie".. It's at least SL rated so it should be good.

Maybe 20 years ago Amalie was a sister brand to Kendall brand oil and was owned by Witco Chemical. They were both first class oils but generally not marketed well. The two brands have since been sold off. Someone here probably knows who owns them now. If I had to guess I would say Conoco.

From its website:

Amalie Oil Company was one of the original "Pennsylvania Crude" oil companies.
Founded in 1903 in Franklin, Pennsylvania by the Sonneborn brothers, Amalie quickly developed a reputation for high-quality, well-engineered petroleum products.
In 1953, Amalie was the first oil company to introduce a multi-grade motor oil: the Imperial 10W30.
Through the years, Amalie has continued to innovate with synthetic oils, high-TBN fleet lubricants, specialty industrial oils, and a technical services department and on-site laboratory that ensure only the highest-quality products.
Our state of the art main production facility in Tampa, Florida boasts some of the fastest and most sophisticated bottle blow-molding, blending, and packaging equipment available.
Located on a deep-water dock, and with over 18 million gallons of bulk storage and blending, Amalie has the economies of scale to economically produce fully licensed products that meet or exceed the manufacturers' requirements, as well as your expectations.

From Yahoo finance:

No one can mix up oil like grandma does.
Amalie Oil (named after the founders' grandmother) blends and supplies lubricants and other oil products including motor oils, transmission fluids, gear oils, and greases.
To control costs, the company also manufactures its own bottles to store its products.
Amalie Oil, which markets its products worldwide, has distribution operations in Dallas; Jacksonville, Florida; and Los Angeles.
The Sonneborn brothers founded the company, one of the early Pennsylvania Crude (paraffin-rich) oil enterprises, in 1903.
Lubricants firm Petroleum Packers acquired Amalie Oil in 1998 and Petroleum Packers changed its name to Amalie Oil.

Whitco owned Amalie and Kendall,sold them off to Sun Oil and then the Florida bunch bought Amalie from Sun because they thought they were "neglecting" the brand.Brad Penn is made at the former Whitco site.

I've used their Pro Synthetic Blend 5w-30 motor oil. It is available at local Federated Auto Parts stores and I pick up a case when I see its on sale. Never had any issues with it. Engines run just as quiet on it as they do on the other oil I use Valvoline, Mobil-1, Castrol, and Kendall. Amalie, for some reason, has always beeen in auto parts stores where I live(Cleveland, Ohio).

I'm using their CVT fluid. Works great so far.

If it's SN rated, you can use it without fear.

They also make Wolf's Head. Here's a UOA I did on their 15-40 HDEO Extreme Duty in my Citroen 2CV
