AMSOIL is so confident in Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil that they provide their own limited warranty. This program is called the “Runs On Freedom Snowmobile Warranty”. Customers exclusively running Interceptor in “current-model-year” (or newer) snowmobiles may be eligible for coverage. AMSOIL will cover the cost of repair to qualified components for up to 2 years, 5000 miles or 8000 km (whichever comes first).
Here are the official guidelines.
“Runs On Freedom” Snowmobile Limited Warranty Terms And Conditions
AMSOIL INC. (“AMSOIL”) offers a New Snowmobile Limited Warranty Program (“AMSOIL Snowmobile Warranty or “Warranty”) for eligible owners of eligible new two stroke snowmobiles (“Covered Equipment” as further described below). Eligible owners include both individuals and entities that are the original owners of Covered Equipment.
An original owner of eligible new Covered Equipment who desires to obtain the AMSOIL Snowmobile Warranty must complete and submit a Warranty Application (the “Application”) through www.amsoil.com/ROFwarranty not later than eighteen (18) months following the date of the owner taking physical delivery of the snowmobile. AMSOIL will send the Owner an email acknowledging receipt of the Application.
AMSOIL RESERVES THE RIGHT, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TO APPROVE OR DISAPPROVE ANY APPLICATION.
AMSOIL will promptly review an Application once it is submitted. If AMSOIL approves the Application, AMSOIL will send the owner written notice of approval (the “Approval”).
Upon Approval, AMSOIL warrants to the original owner, for the term set forth in the “Warranty Term” column of the table below (the “Warranty Term”), that the two stroke lubricants set forth in the “Covered Fluid” column of the table below (each a “Covered Fluid”, collectively, the “Covered Fluids”) are suitable for use in the “OEM Engines” set forth in the table below (each an “Engine”, collectively, the “Engines”) of new Covered Equipment, subject to all of the requirements and limitations contained herein. The Warranty Term shall begin on the date of physical delivery of the eligible new Covered Equipment and extend for the number of years so indicated or until the equipment has been in service for the number of miles/kilometers so indicated, whichever occurs first. This Warranty is free.

OBLIGATIONS OF OWNER
1. Proper Fuel, Lubricants: Owner agrees to always use the proper fuel and Covered Fluids exclusively in the Covered Equipment during the Warranty Term.

Owner understands that, during the Warranty Term, use of any lubricant or additive products not approved by AMSOIL will void the Warranty.
2. Maintenance: Owner agrees to maintain the Covered Equipment in accordance with the original equipment manufacturer’s (“OEM”) recommendations and recommendations made in writing by AMSOIL. Owner agrees to retain all maintenance-related receipts.
At its option, AMSOIL will repair or replace any damaged Covered Parts and any other parts which the Covered Parts caused to be damaged, including reasonable and necessary labor costs, free of charge.
If intending to make a claim pursuant to this Warranty, Owner must do the following:
1. In the event of engine failure or the appearance of an engine defect, Owner must cease using the Covered Equipment
2. Owner must promptly submit a claim to AMSOIL at [email protected] or (715) 399-TECH (8324). In no event shall such notification be made to AMSOIL later than seven (7) days following a failure or appearance of a defect.
3. Owner must provide AMSOIL with a detailed estimate for the repair.
4. All Warranty service must be performed by an authorized OEM Dealer of the brand of snowmobile covered by the Warranty.
5. Owner must receive written authorization from AMSOIL prior to starting any repair or replacement of Covered Parts (which will be provided within three weeks of receipt). If Covered Parts are repaired or replaced without prior authorization from AMSOIL, AMSOIL reserves the right not to pay for such repair or replacement.
6. Owner must retain any damaged parts replaced under the Warranty for ninety (90) days and must be provided to AMSOIL upon request.
7. After service has been completed and Covered Fluids replaced, Owner must submit the final invoice to AMSOIL for payment within sixty (60) days from the invoice date. AMSOIL will make payment of the invoice within thirty (30) days of receipt and approval.
8. Owner agrees to also pursue OEM and retailer warranties whenever applicable. By submitting a claim under the Warranty, Owner agrees to assign to AMSOIL the right to make a claim against an OEM for breach of the equipment manufacturer’s warranty, if applicable.
EXCEPTIONS AND EXCLUSIONS FROM THE WARRANTY
AMSOIL does not warrant (a) any product which is not a Covered Fluid, (b) failure of a covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from use of products other than products approved by AMSOIL, including Covered Fluids, filters and additives, (c) failure of a covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from failure to use or store the Covered Fluid in a suitable manner, (d) failure of a covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from normal wear or deterioration, abuse, misuse, negligence, accident, lack of or improper maintenance, operation, storage or transport, (e) failure of a covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from disasters such as fire, flood, wind, lightning or vandalism, (f) failure of a covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from unauthorized or improper modification or repair of the covered engine or Covered Fluid, (g) failure of a covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from presence of foreign material in the covered engine, (h) use of Covered Equipment for any racing purpose, (i) failure of covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from snow or water ingestion; (j) failure of covered engine directly or indirectly caused by or resulting from use of gasoline blends exceeding 10% ethanol; or failure of a covered engine caused by OEM defects or flaws in design, materials or workmanship and/or recall. The Warranty does not cover snowmobiles that have been used outside of the United States or Canada.
This Limited Warranty shall accrue and inure only to the benefit of the original owner of Covered Equipment and may not be assigned, sold or transferred in any manner. Except where prohibited by law, any assignment, sale or transfer of this Warranty or the Covered Equipment shall extinguish all obligations of AMSOIL under this Warranty.
DISCLAIMER OF OTHER WARRANTIES
To the extent permitted by state law, THE FOREGOING WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Where disclaimer of implied warranties is not permitted, the duration of the implied warranty is limited to the duration of the express warranty as set forth above. Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to certain Owners.
LIMITATION OF REMEDIES
As to remedies available to Owner for any and all losses or damages, including losses or damages arising from a claim of breach of warranty, breach of contract, negligence or strict liability, Owner’s exclusive remedy shall be limited to the replacement value of the failed internal part or parts of the engine covered by this Warranty. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL AMSOIL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES BASED UPON ANY LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF USE OF EQUIPMENT, COST OF ANY SUBSTITUTE EQUIPMENT, DOWNTIME, COST OF HAULING AND COST OF LODGING. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. Some States do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to some Owners. This warranty gives Owners specific legal rights; an Owner may also have other rights which vary from State to State.
TIME LIMIT FOR BRINGING A CLAIM
Owner agrees that, in the event of any claim arising from this Limited Warranty, it will commence an action within one year of any denial or rejection of any claim.
ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
IF ANY DISPUTE ARISES BETWEEN OWNER AND AMSOIL RELATING TO THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, THE DISPUTE WILL BE SETTLED ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION. This means that neither AMSOIL nor Owner will sue in court before a judge or jury, individually or as a class member. Instead, one neutral arbitrator will decide the dispute, and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only for the individual claims.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association, in accordance with its rules of practice and procedure. The arbitrator will be bound to follow applicable federal and state laws and regulations in deciding all issues and in rendering any award. The parties will be entitled to invoke the rules of discovery applicable to state court proceedings. The arbitration proceedings will be conclusive and not appealable, and any party to any award rendered in any arbitration proceeding will be entitled to have judgment entered on that award. Arbitration will take place at a location mutually agreed upon by the parties or, at Owner’s election, in its/his/her county of residence, and will be held in English.
Customer may reject this arbitration section by sending AMSOIL a notice within thirty (30) days of its application being accepted via U.S. Mail to the email address, above.
CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER
AMSOIL AND OWNER AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE, INCLUDING ARBITRATION AND LITIGATION IN COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED INDIVIDUALLY ONLY. Neither party will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, a classwide arbitration, a private attorney-general action, or any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act as a representative for others. AMSOIL and Owner also agree that no arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another arbitration or proceeding without the written consent of AMSOIL, Owner, and every other party to that arbitration or proceeding.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT, NO OTHER WARRANTIES
Unless modified in writing and signed by both parties, the Limited Warranty, together with the Application, is understood to be the complete and exclusive agreement between the parties, superseding all prior agreements, oral or written, and all other communications between AMSOIL and Owner, relating to the subject matter of the Warranty. No employee of AMSOIL or any other party is authorized to make any warranties in addition to that made herein.
