AMSOIL has released a brand-new semi-synthetic 15W-40 diesel engine oil. This product is called AMSOIL 15W-40 Commercial-Grade Diesel Oil. AMSOIL is best known for it’s full-synthetic product line.
Why Did AMSOIL Release A New 15W-40?
AMSOIL is looking to make a dent in the commercial market. Cost is king in this sector. Therefore, AMSOIL’s premium, full-synthetic diesel oils can be priced out of some markets.
This new semi-synthetic product was designed to be cost-competitive and still offer the exceptional wear protection that AMSOIL is known for.
What Is Notable About This 15W-40 Commercial-Grade Diesel Oil?
The main feature of this new product is that its base oil is comprised of over 50% synthetic oil.
Why is this notable?
This is notable because virtually all synthetic-blend diesel oils on the market have a base oil that contains between 1% and 15% synthetic oil. You read that correctly.
A dirty little secret in the motor oil industry is that there is absolutely no policing of what can be marketed as a “semi-synthetic” oil. While it may be implied (or assumed) that a synthetic-blend oil is “half” synthetic, this is almost never the case.
This product meets most all major industry standards including API CK-4.
Impressive Wear Protection And All-Season Performance
AMSOIL commissioned third-party wear testing for this new 15W-40 oil. In the Detroit Diesel DD13 test, AMSOIL 15W-40 Commercial-Grade Diesel Oil achieved wear numbers that were two times that of the minimum test benchmark. This test is designed to show how well a diesel oil will protect piston rings and cylinder bores.
The fact that this is product is a true synthetic-blend contributes to excellent all-season performance. An impressive cold-pour-point of -33°F (-36°C) makes for fast oil flow at start-up. This product also resists volatility boil-off and oil consumption in extreme heat.
