The benchmark for high-performance two-strokes, including DFI engines. Not only is Interceptor AMSOIL’s most popular snowmobile oil, it is also an outstanding injection or premix oil for two-stroke Sea-Doo, motorcycles and jet boats in hard recreational use.

AMSOIL Interceptor is a high-quality replacement for the following OEM snowmobile oils.

  • Ski-Doo XPS 2T E-ETC Synthetic Oil
  • Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil and Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil
  • Polaris VES Full-Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil and Polaris VES Extreme Full-Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil

Of the dozens of AMSOIL products that Oildepot sells, Interceptor Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil generates some of the highest volume of customer feedback. All of the feedback is positive and this happens season after season. Of course customers love the wear control, clean power valves, improved throttle response and low-smoke operation. They especially love the fact that Interceptor’s elite formula is available to them at a better price than most synthetic oils offered by the snowmobile makers. They also report better performance over the OEM-branded 2-stroke oils too.

Interceptor is not just 2-stroke oil; it is a cost-effective performance upgrade and a significant one at that. Try AMSOIL Interceptor in your sled this season and see why thousands of snowmobilers across North America will use nothing else.

About AMSOIL Interceptor

AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil is specifically formulated to inhibit exhaust power valve gumming, ring sticking and engine wear in high-performance powersports applications. It contains synthetic base oils that decrease friction, increase throttle response and provide exceptional wear protection for pistons, cylinders and bearings. Its robust additive package provides superior overall cleanliness properties in both air- and liquid-cooled engines and in hot-operating direct-fuel-injected (DFI) engines. Interceptor is compatible with most all 2-cycle oils and most makes and models of two-cycle powersports equipment where the API TC, JASO FD or ISO-L-EGC spec is suggested.

What Benefits Can You Expect from AMSOIL Interceptor?

  • Lower price, but higher performance over most OEM-branded synthetic two-stroke oils
  • Low-friction synthetic formula reduces wear and improves throttle response
  • Helps prevent hard carbon deposits on variable exhaust power valves
  • Low exhaust smoke
  • Outstanding cold temperature performance (flows down to -69°F!)
  • Excellent performance in fuel-efficient, low-emissions engines such as Ski-Doo®/Rotax® E-TEC™
  • Protects against internal rust during storage
  • Recommended for either oil injection systems or at 50:1 pre-mix ratios
  • Recommended for applications requiring the API TC, JASO FD and ISO-L-EGC performance specifications

Exceptional Engine Protection

Today’s 2-stroke engines are designed to use less oil than ever and this can generate heat, wear and all-round hostile operating conditions. Interceptor’s modern formula is designed to protect engines in the face of exceptional heat and heavy loads. Interceptor delivers low friction and extreme shear-strength that fights both hot operating temperatures and engine wear.

Clean Combustion Chamber and Exhaust Power Valve Formula

Interceptor is loaded with detergents and dispersants to keep variable exhaust power valves, combustion chambers and spark plugs clean and operating at peak efficiency all season long. Interceptor is prominent in the industry for its ability to keep engine internals clean, regardless of whether you are idling around the trails or climbing mountain sides at full throttle.

Flows Quickly In Extreme Cold

Fast oil flow is vital for oil-injected two-stroke engines. AMSOIL Interceptor flows down to -56°C or -69°F. You may not ride in these temperature extremes, but this means that your engine will receive instant oil delivery under normal winter conditions. The video below illustrates how Interceptor outperforms popular synthetic oils sold at your local snowmobile dealer.

Interceptor Excels in Ski-Doo/Rotax® E-TEC® Torture Testing

To prove that Interceptor was 100% suitable for use in the impressive Ski-Doo/Rotax E-TEC engines, AMSOIL performed extensive testing to demonstrate that their oil could prevent wear and operate free of deposits. Rotax E-TEC engines employ the latest two-stroke technology and are a veritable torture test for 2-stroke oil. What is different about E-TEC engines over previous generations of two-cycle engines is that they use extremely sophisticated electronics to precisely meter out the correct amount of fuel and oil at all times. Fuel is injected directly into the cylinders at high pressure and an astonishingly small amount of two-stroke oil is used over the course of a season. The result is a low-emissions engine that uses less fuel, but yet cranks out extremely high horsepower per cubic centimeter in a hot-running, lightweight package.

Because of the low amount of oil used in a high-output engine, not just any two-stroke oil is suitable. Oils appropriate for E-TEC engines have to be on their game in terms of wear protection and deposit control.

Directions for Use

Interceptor can be used in oil injection systems or as a premix. The recommended premix ratio is 50:1.

Can You Mix AMSOIL Interceptor with Other 2-Stroke Oils?

While AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil is compatible with most other brands of conventional, synthetic-blend and synthetic two-stroke oil, for best results it is recommended that mixing Interceptor with other brands of oil is kept at a minimum.
