AMSOIL Engine and Transmission FlushA reader asks: I would like to perform an engine flush on my Ford 6.7L PowerStroke engine before switching to synthetic oil. How many bottles of AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush will do the job?

Our Answer: The number of bottles of AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush needed to flush an engine is based on the crankcase capacity. As diesel engines have larger oil capacities, they tend to require more than one bottle. Your 6.7L PowerStroke engine holds 12.4 litres (13.1 US quarts) of engine oil and therefore will require 2 bottles of AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush.

Below is the application rate for AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush.

Shown on the left is the engine oil capacity and on the right is the number of 473 ml (16 oz.) bottles of AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush required.

  • Up to 9.46 litres (10 US quarts) – One Bottle
  • 9.46 to 18.9 litres (10 to 20 US quarts) – Two Bottles
  • 18.9 to 28.4 litres (20 to 30 US quarts) – Three Bottles
  • 28.4 to 37.85 litres (30 to 40 US quarts) – Four Bottles

Doing an engine flush prior to using synthetic oil for the first time is a smart, cost-effective maintenance practice. This applies to both gasoline and diesel engines. The AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush cleans out deposits, gum, varnish and soot so that your new synthetic oil is not cleaning up these undesirable combustion by-products and sending them into circulation. This practice is especially helpful for diesel engines as they generate much more soot than gasoline engines.

High-quality synthetics oils like those from AMSOIL have strong detergent capabilities that will clean up deposits over time. It is a good idea to go after engine gunk with AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush so that your engine is starting out with a clean slate.

Chevy Big Block 427 L72 Spec Engine

Should this Chevy Big Block 427 get 10W-30 or 20W-50 motor oil? (photo credit: superchevy.com)

A reader asks: My street rod has a 1967-vintage Chevy big block 427 (L72 spec) with solid lifter cams. This car runs only in the summer and has an estimated 450 horsepower. I would like to run AMSOIL Z-Rod in this engine, but I’m really torn between 10W-30 and 20W-50. There’s so much debate on the internet about which grade to use. Can you offer any thoughts?

Answer: This is a very contentious and well-worn subject, but there is actually no wrong answer. There is no downside to going with 10W-30 or 20W-50 motor oil in your engine. It really comes down to personal preference. As your engine does put out significant horsepower, we would lean toward using 20W-50.

If your engine sees very light duty or is built exceptionally tight, 10W-30 would be fine. But again, if you twisted our arm, we would give 20W-50 the nod for the thicker viscosity.

Regardless of which viscosity is chosen, AMSOIL Z-Rod is formulated expressly for older engines. Packed with 1440 ppm of zinc and 1320 ppm of phosphorous (serious anti-wear additives), Z-Rod is a superior choice for classic engines. These anti-wear agents make Z-ROD Oils especially suitable for engines with flat tappet camshafts.

Motor oils specified for modern cars and trucks are anemic by comparison with zinc and phosphorus levels averaging in the 800 ppm range. Today’s cars and trucks have emissions equipment that do not react well to high zinc and phosphorus levels. Therefore the latest motor oil specifications take a different approach to wear control.

But as emissions equipment are a non-issue for classic engines, this motor oil has no formulation constraints. The 100% synthetic base oil of Z-Rod provides tremendous shear strength and maintains consistent viscosity, regardless of high engine temperatures or hard operation.

There is absolutely no downside to going with a synthetic oil like Z-Rod in vintage engines. You will not see increased oil consumption or leaks. Z-Rod Oils also contain special additives that condition seals to extend their life.

As vintage cars tend to retire for the winter, AMSOIL also gave Z-Rod a healthy dose of anti-rust and corrosion agents. So you can rest well knowing your baby is well-protected whether she’s running or not.

So regardless of whether you opt for 10W-30 or 20W-50, you will have done your engine a favor by choosing the AMSOIL Z-Rod Motor Oil series.

Definition of  flash point according to Google: “The temperature at which a particular organic compound gives off sufficient vapor to ignite in air.”

Occasionally we see folks pointing out the flash point values of 2-stroke oils, claiming that a higher flash point number is superior to oils with a lower flash point. The implication being that 2-stroke oils with a lower flash point will burn off prematurely at high operating temperatures, leaving engines vulnerable to damage under heavy loads. The short answer to this debate is that the flash point does not matter and here’s why.

Once 2-stroke oil comes in contact with gasoline, the flash point of the oil drops dramatically. The oil takes on a flash point closer to that of the fuel when the two come into contact. This is true in oil-injected and direct-injected 2-strokes (where the fuel meets the oil in the engine) or premix engines (where the oil meets the fuel in the gas can). You may note the term “miscibility” is often listed in 2-stroke oil specifications. This refers to the abilty of the oil mix with the gasoline and essentially become a “homogeneous solution”.

Also consider that the exhaust temperature of late model snowmobiles can be in the 1200°F range. So comparing the flash point number of 2-stroke oils in the bottle isn’t all that relevant once the oil has been mixed with gasoline and goes through the combustion process.

What To Consider When Choosing A 2-Stroke Oil

Is the ash content suitable for your application? As in, does your engine call for an API-TC “low-ash” oil or a TCW-3 “ashless oil”? Does the oil contain a high quality base oil? Does it contain a healthy dose of anti-wear additives and detergent agents? Is it suitable for use with variable exhaust power valves?

The flash point number has more pertinence for the MSDS sheet or for your snowmobile dealer’s fire insurance policy. At the end of the day, they all go out the exhaust in smoke. The more important questions are how well does the oil protect your engine and is it leaving harmful deposits behind?

AMSOIL Interceptor Versus XPS Syn 2-Stroke OilSki-Doo dealers offer a couple of XPS 2-stroke oil choices. Let’s compare AMSOIL 2-stroke oil to Ski-Doo oil including the characteristics of each as well the pricing in both Canada and the United States. Let’s see how Ski-Doo 2-Stroke Oils stack up versus AMSOIL.

About AMSOIL 2-Stroke Oil Prices

As we are prohibited from publishing AMSOIL’s wholesale prices, the AMSOIL price comparisons to Ski-Doo oil used below are determined using our wholesale program prices “by the case” and include average shipping costs. Remote destinations may have extra freight charges attached.

About Ski-Doo/BRP Oil Prices

The prices listed below for Ski-Doo XPS 2-stroke oil products are based on averages from randomly selected Canadian and US Ski-Doo dealers. Prices may vary at other locations.

Ski-Doo XPS Full-Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $54.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $44.99 in US (per US gallon)

Your Ski-doo dealer will wave his arms and try to tell you that using anything other than XPS Full-Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil in your Rotax E-TEC engine will have catastrophic results. While he will be impassioned and may get spittle on your jacket, he’s only telling you the partial truth.

It is true that if you try to get away with using a cheap 2-stroke oil in your E-TEC engine, the outcome could be less than desirable. Ski-Doo’s E-TEC 600cc and 800cc 2-stroke engines are among the most technologically advanced engines in the snowmobile industry. They employ direct injection and an on-board computer to deliver the appropriate amount of fuel and oil based on riding conditions. The E-TEC engine’s 2-stroke oil needs are regulated by thousands of computer calculations per second, so there is minimal oil used and emissions are lowered dramatically. But as E-TEC engines do pack a punch in terms of horsepower, what precious little oil is going through the engine has to capably prevent wear and deposit formation.

We have a 2-stroke oil that is verified by field and lab testing to prevent wear and RAVE valve deposits in Ski-Doo E-TEC engines. AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is an ultra-premium product that prevents wear, reduces friction, burns clean and flows in arctic weather. To prove our point, AMSOIL has performed a cache of testing to prove its worth in E-TEC engines. Interceptor has earned a legendary reputation in the snowmobile industry, so you won’t go wrong with this product.

Price Of Ski-Doo XPS Full-Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Versus AMSOIL Interceptor

We can ship AMSOIL Interceptor to your door for between 30% and 37% less than the price of XPS Full-Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil at your Ski-Doo dealership. This is employing one of our wholesale programs and dependent on your location.

Ski-Doo XPS Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $44.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $33.99 in US (per US gallon)

XPS Mineral 2-Stroke Oil is offered at Ski-Doo dealers for carbureted engines that may be found in older sleds or their latest models with the Rotax 550F engine. As a conventional-based oil, it will have limitations in terms of deposit control, cold-weather flow and shear strength. Mineral oils tend to have poorer resistance to carbon deposit formation compared to synthetic 2-cycle oils. The use of an oil like XPS Mineral 2-Stroke in engines equipped with RAVE variable exhaust power valves will require frequent inspection and service.

We have a full-synthetic substitute for Ski-Doo XPS Mineral 2-Stroke Oil that will improve every function of your Ski-Doo engine. AMSOIL “AIO” Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil delivers reduced friction, powerful wear control, low smoke, improved cold flow and carbon deposit resistance. AIO Injector can even be used in engines equipped with RAVE power valves. AMSOIL AIO Injector Oil will provide an upgrade across the board over Ski-Doo XPS Mineral 2-Stroke Oil.

Price Of Ski-Doo XPS Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Versus AMSOIL AIO Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil

The retail price of Ski-Doo XPS Mineral 2-Stroke Oil is between 34% and 38% more than our best price on AMSOIL AIO Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil (including shipping!). How often do you get a significant performance upgrade and a considerably lower price? You would expect the opposite result when comparing the prices of a mineral oil to synthetic oil. In fact, XPS Mineral’s retail price is slightly higher than our best price on Interceptor! If you are looking for value-priced 2-stroke snowmobile oil, AMSOIL AIO will be the smartest purchase you make this winter.

AMSOIL Interceptor vs. Polaris VES Syn 2-Stroke OilPolaris offers three 2-stroke oil options for the 2016 snowmobile season. Let’s examine the Canadian and US pricing for each Polaris product, look at their intended uses and see which AMSOIL synthetic 2-stroke oil matches up. Then we’ll compare the pricing of Polaris 2-Stroke Oil versus AMSOIL.

About AMSOIL Prices

As we are prohibited from publishing AMSOIL’s wholesale prices, the AMSOIL price comparisons used below are computed using our wholesale program prices “by the case” and include average shipping costs. Remote destinations may have extra freight charges attached.

About Polaris Oil Prices

The prices listed below for Polaris 2-stroke oil products are based on averages from randomly selected Canadian and US Polaris dealers. Retail prices may vary at other locations.

Polaris VES Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Prices

  • $54.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $46.99 in USA (per US gallon)

Previously known as “VES Gold Plus”, VES Full Synthetic is Polaris’s most popular 2-stroke oil for their modern snowmobiles. VES Full Synthetic is formulated to keep variable exhaust power valves clean, emit low exhaust smoke levels deliver acceptable wear protection.

We can offer an outstanding upgrade over VES Full Synthetic that provides elite performance and protection for your Polaris snowmobile engine. AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is perhaps the most renowned 2-stroke sled oil in the industry. Interceptor delivers ultra-clean power valves, maximum power output, extreme cold weather performance and low-smoke. Strong positive customer feedback reinforces these claims.

Price of Polaris VES Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Versus AMSOIL Interceptor

Depending on your location, AMSOIL Interceptor can be shipped to your door for 20% to 30% less than Polaris VES Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil when using our wholesale programs. We would argue that Interceptor is a significant upgrade over VES Synthetic, so it is really win-win for Polaris owners wanting to use a great synthetic oil.

Polaris VES Race Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Prices

  • $62.99 Canada (per US gallon)
  • $52.99 USA (per US gallon)

This is Polaris’s top 2-stroke oil that is designed for racing and high-performance trail use. As VES Full Synthetic covers the needs of most high performance snowmobilers, some Polaris dealers do not stock VES Race Oil. VES Race is designed with a high film strength for extra anti-wear protection. VES Race is basically Polaris’s “severe service” 2-stroke oil.

We offer two AMSOIL synthetic substitutes for Polaris VES Race that we would suggest are a strong upgrade at a better price.

For racing and highly modified snowmobile engines (only!), we offer AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing 2-Stroke Oil. Dominator 2-Stroke has a very high film strength that provides an infallible wear barrier during heavy loads and extended periods of extremely hot operating temperatures. This is the exact formula used by AMSOIL’s snocross racing teams, so you are truly buying professional-grade racing oil with Dominator.

For hard recreational riding with relatively stock engines, go with Interceptor. As Dominator 2-Stroke Oil is designed for the extreme heat of racing and/or modified engines, stock engines will not run hot enough to completely burning off Dominator’s additive package. This applies to all stock engines. AMSOIL Interceptor is a great substitute for Polaris VES Race Oil, no matter how hard you push your stock engine.

Price of Polaris VES Race Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Versus AMSOIL

We can smoke the retail price you would pay for VES Synthetic 2-Stroke Race Oil at your Polaris dealer. When purchasing a case of 4 US gallons, both Interceptor and Dominator are well over of 30% cheaper than VES Race Oil. For most locations, that includes shipping right to your door.

Polaris Premium Blue Synthetic Blend 2-Cycle Engine Oil Prices

  • $44.99 Canada (per US gallon)
  • $39.00 USA (per US gallon)

Polaris Premium Blue is a semi-synthetic 2-stroke oil offered by Polaris dealers for snowmobile engines without variable exhaust power valves. This could be for older snowmobiles or newer sleds with the 550cc fan-cooled engine. Premium Blue is designed to provide adequate performance at a moderate price.

We can offer two full full synthetic oils that roundly defeat the semi-synthetic Premium Blue in both performance and price. First we have the “AIO” AMSOIL Injector Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil. It can be used in any snowmobile engine, including those with exhaust power valves. Polaris specifies that Premium Blue should not be used in snowmobile engines with power valves, implying that it will not burn cleanly enough to prevent deposit formation. AIO Injector offers full synthetic benefits including an exceptionally low cold pour point, robust wear control, low smoke and reduced friction.

At the price point for which Polaris is retailing Premium Blue, our first-rate AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil could also be considered as a viable replacement. Interceptor is certainly suitable for older engines, sleds without power valves or the very latest 2-strokes on the market.

Price of Polaris Premium Blue Synthetic Blend 2-Cycle Engine Oil versus AMSOIL Injector Oil

“AIO” AMSOIL Injector Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil can be shipped to your door for around 30% less than you can pick up Polaris Premium Blue 2-Stroke Oil at your dealer. Again this a full synthetic versus a synthetic blend, so in our mind, this is a no-brainer.

The elite quality AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is anywhere from 6% to 15% less money than Premium Blue (depending on your location). Those in the market for Premium Blue may not want to go for this high-end full-synthetic oil, but this illustrates Interceptor’s great value.

Conclusion

Oildepot sells the finest 2-stroke oils in the snowmobile industry at better prices than the oils found at your Polaris dealer. Contact us using the form on this page or call us at 1-800-748-5781.

ait-vs-apv-syn-2-strokeFor the 2016 snowmobile season, Arctic Cat offers three distinct 2-stroke oils at their dealerships. Let’s explore the Canadian and US pricing for each product and also discuss the engine types and riding styles for which each is intended. Then we’ll analyze the pricing of each Arctic Cat 2-Stroke Oil versus AMSOIL.

About AMSOIL 2-Stroke Oil Prices

We are prohibited from publishing AMSOIL’s wholesale prices. The AMSOIL price comparisons used below are computed using our wholesale program prices when purchasing a case of four gallons and include average shipping costs. Remote destinations may have extra freight charges attached. You certainly can request an AMSOIL wholesale price list using the contact form on this page.

About Arctic Cat Oil Prices

The prices listed below for Arctic Cat 2-stroke oil products are based on averages from randomly selected Canadian and US Arctic Cat dealers. Prices may vary at other locations.

Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $57.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $45.00 in US (per US gallon)

APV Synthetic Oil is Arctic Cat’s all-round 2-stroke oil that is suitable for every model except for those equipped with the C-TEC2 600cc engine (more on that below). As the name implies, CAT APV Oil is designed to be compatible with Cat’s variable exhaust power valve system called APV (Arctic Power Valves). This system has been used for years on various Suzuki-made 2-stroke Arctic Cat engines. Their current “8000” series 800cc engine would be a prime candidate. APV Synthetic Oil is designed to resist clogging these power valves while offering acceptable performance and protection.

An ideal substitute for Arctic Cat APV Synthetic would be AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil. Interceptor has been a widely-renowned industry standard for high performance 2-stroke snowmobiles for years. It delivers exceptionally clean APV valves, huge anti-wear protection, low-smoke and incredible cold flow characteristics. Interceptor delivers all of the benefits of an elite synthetic injector oil at a very reasonable price.

Price Of Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Versus AMSOIL Interceptor

On average, Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is 37% more expensive than AMSOIL Interceptor shipped right to your door. This applies to prices from either Canadian or US Arctic Cat dealers.

Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $24.99 in Canada, (48 US Ounce Pouch, equivalent to $66.64 per US gallon)
  • $19.99 in US (48 US Ounce Pouch, equivalent to $53.25 per US gallon)

Cat C-TEC2 oil is commonly stocked in 48 fluid ounce (1420 ml) pouches. The Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic Oil was designed specifically for Cat’s C-TEC2 600cc 2-stroke engine. The C-TEC2 engine is a new generation 2-stroke that employs direct injection and precise electronically-metered fuel and oil delivery. The result is an engine that utilizes every drop of fuel and much less oil than traditional 2-stroke engines, while producing exceptional horsepower relative to its displacement. The huge challenge for Arctic Cat engineers was preventing premature wear when so little 2-stroke oil is consumed. Arctic Cat decided to offer an upscale 2-stroke oil that could withstand the relatively “dry” operating conditions of the C-TEC2.

We offer a direct replacement synthetic oil that is formulated to deliver dependable wear control in today’s direct injection 2-stroke engines. AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is proven performer in today’s technologically advanced two-stroke engines like the Arctic Cat C-TEC2 engine and the miserly Ski-Doo E-TEC engines. Interceptor provides the best engine protection money can buy for Cat C-TEC2 600cc engines that make the most of every drop of 2-stroke oil.

Price Of Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic Oil Versus AMSOIL Interceptor

The retail price of Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic Oil at your Cat dealer is anywhere from 58% to 68% more expensive than AMSOIL Interceptor. Having a case of Interceptor shipped to your door using our wholesale programs can save you a lot of money with all of the benefits of a premium synthetic 2-stroke engine oil.

Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $41.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $32.00 in US (per US gallon)

Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil is offered only for engines that are not equipped with APV variable exhaust power valves. The reason being is that non-synthetic 2-cycle oils do not burn cleanly and have a tendency to clog power valves with carbon deposits. Blocked power valves can lead to power loss and even engine failure. Non-APV engines would include Arctic Cat’s latest 4000 series engines (500cc) and their 2000 series engines (565cc), as well as older 2-stroke engines that do not have power valves.

In a perfect world, wouldn’t it be great to have a full-synthetic substitute for Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil that sells for a lower price? We can do that! Despite being much less expensive than Cat’s other 2-stroke oils, in our opinion, Formula 50 is way overpriced and not a great value for your dollar. We suggest using AMSOIL “AIO” Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil instead. It offers all of the benefits you would expect of a full-synthetic 2-cycle oil including low-smoke, reduced engine deposits, exceptional cold weather performance and reduced friction. AIO can even be used in engines with variable exhaust power valves.

Price Of Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Versus AMSOIL AIO Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil

The retail price of the conventional Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Synthetic Oil is between 26% and 29% more expensive than our wholesale price for AMSOIL “AIO” Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil (when purchased by the case). This includes shipping costs right to your door. AMSOIL AIO Synthetic Injector Oil is a better deal all day long. In fact, Formula 50 is priced very closely to the ultra-premium AMSOIL Interceptor.

Conclusion

Oildepot can put a full-synthetic 2-stroke oil in your Arctic Cat engine that will improve every operational aspect at a better price than the oil found at your Arctic Cat dealer. Call us at 1-800-748-5781.

AMSOIL has just released a new synthetic oil that is specifically formulated for air tool applications. AMSOIL Synthetic Air Tool Oil is designed for a wide variety of common pneumatic shop tools.

Why Use A Special Oil For Air Tools?

AMSOIL Synthetic Air Tool OilWhile one may be able to get away with using regular motor oil or ATF to lubricate air tools for a while, dedicated air tool oil offers specific characteristics that are conducive to air tool use.

First off, moisture can make its way through air tools and as these tools tend to run cool, gum can form that will hinder performance. AMSOIL Air Tool Oil neutralizes moisture so that gummy deposits cannot form.

This synthetic air tool oil also keeps o-rings and seals from drying out for steady performance and longer service life.

Why Use A Synthetic Air Tool Oil?

  • Lower friction means maximum efficiency and optimum air tool output.
  • Synthetic oil provides exceptional film strength between moving parts and tight tolerances for reduced wear.
  • Synthetic oil will not thicken in cold weather, so air tools will perform outdoors in winter.
  • Provides maximum tool life for less downtime and reduced repair or replacement expenses.
  • This air tool oil is a great investment for just a few drops per tool per day.

What Kind of Package Sizes Are Available?

AMSOIL Synthetic Air Tool Oil is available in single 4-ounce (118 ml) bottles or in cases of 12 bottles. Each bottle has a special “dropper” applicator cap that allows for accurate oil placement and prevention of over-oiling.

Where Can I Buy AMSOIL Synthetic Air Tool Oil?

You can buy AMSOIL Synthetic Air Tool Oil by the single bottle or by the case from Oildepot. We ship from 2 warehouses in Canada and 11 in the United States. Contact us using the form on this page or call us at 1-800-748-5781.
