AMSOIL Ea Motorcycle Oil FiltersA reader asks: I’ve been researching oil filters for my Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Harley-Davidson has oil filters that will stop particles down to 5 microns, while AMSOIL motorcycle filters only stop particles down to 20 microns. I thought that AMSOIL oil filters were supposed to be one of the better filters out there? Why are Harley filters so much better?

Our answer: The oil filter micron ratings provided by both AMSOIL and Harley-Davidson “Super Premium5” oil filters is like comparing apples to oranges. Each company is measuring their micron ratings on completely different scales. Therefore, the micron numbers are not at all comparable.

AMSOIL offers their motorcycle oil filter ratings on an “absolute” scale. Based on this measurement, their motorcycle oil filters are 98.7% efficient at stopping particles that are 20 microns in size or larger. This is a considered to be a very strong efficiency rating.

For reference, a decent automotive oil filter would stop 98.7% of particles 30 microns or larger.

Harley-Davidson provides their micron numbers on an “nominal” scale. Their nominal claim of “5-microns” with their “Super Premium5” oil filter is not telling the whole story. Filters makers claiming ultra-low nominal micron ratings aren’t mentioning the “efficiency”.

Let’s be clear. Harley-Davidson Oil Filters are definitely not removing 100% of particles down to 5-microns. This would make the oil filter so restrictive that it would go into by-pass mode every single time you rolled onto the throttle. Under most all riding conditions, that would be like having no oil filter.

What is the Difference Between “Nominal” And “Absolute” Oil Filter Ratings?

Absolute filter ratings are determined under controlled testing. The absolute filter rating is shown as 98.7% of particles of a stated diameter being stopped by the oil filter. In the case of AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil Filters, they stop 98.7% of particles measuring 20 microns in size or larger.

Nominal ratings such as the 5-micron rating touted by Harley-Davidson has zero meaning without mentioning efficiency. Chances are high that the H-D filters are about 50% efficient at 5 microns. Where a Harley 5-micron oil filter would score in an absolute filter micron test is anyone’s guess.

What Is a Micron?

A micron is a unit of measurement that is 0.001 millimeters or 0.000039 inches. For example, bacteria are 2 to 3 microns in diameter and a red blood cell is 5 microns. The diameter of human hair averages 70 to 80 microns.

Bottom Line

To sum up, Harley oil filters might be well-built and near the top of the heap. But it’s very hard to tell. The nominal 5-micron rating touted by Harley-Davidson has no meaning without mentioning efficiency.

AMSOIL Arctic Synthetic GreaseA reader asks: Do you carry an equivalent of Mobil Epic EP 102 Grease? This will be used in medium-duty worm drives in both extreme winter cold and summer.

Our answer: We believe that we have an upgrade over the semi-synthetic Mobil Epic EP 102 product.

A unique aspect of Mobil Epic EP 102 is that it has a relatively rare NLGI grade of “1.5”.

NLGI # 1 grease would traditionally be considered a winter grease, while NLGI # 2 grease is considered a summer grease. The vast majority of grease sold is NLGI #2. For most of the northern half of North America, an NLGI # 1 grease can be used year-round in all but the heaviest applications.

While we don’t offer a semi-synthetic NLGI #1.5 grease, we think that a full-synthetic NLGI # 1 product would actually cover a wider temperature range.

Our replacement for the semi-synthetic Mobil Epic EP 102 Grease would be the 100% synthetic AMSOIL Arctic Synthetic Grease. Don’t let the “Arctic” title fool you. This full-synthetic, extreme pressure (EP) grease is very capable for summer use. Its synthetic formula allows for complete four-season use.

A Full Synthetic Substitute For Mobil Epic EP 102 Grease

AMSOIL Arctic Grease has an operating range of -59°C to 157°C (-75°F to 315°F). The Mobil Epic EP 102 product has an operating range of -50°C to 150°C (-58°F to 302°F). The AMSOIL Arctic Grease has a slightly wider operating range.

When it comes to extreme pressure performance, the AMSOIL Arctic Grease outperforms the Mobil Epic EP 102 product. The “4-Ball Weld Test” measures the load carrying ability of a given grease. In this test, a steel ball is rotated under pressure against three other steel balls. The amount of weight required to seize this steel ball against the other three gives us the 4-Ball Weld Test number.

AMSOIL Arctic Synthetic Grease withstands the 4-Ball Weld Test until 400 kg of pressure is applied. Mobil Epic EP 102 Grease stops out at just 250 kg.

In conclusion, AMSOIL Arctic Grease is much more than just a “winter grease”. It has a wider operating temperature range and a much greater ability to withstand extreme pressure over Mobil Epic EP 102 Grease.

We can offer AMSOIL Synthetic Arctic Grease at wholesale in Canada and the US. Contact us for a price list using the form on the page

I would like to change the fluid, but the Castrol Syntorq LT oil is (apparently) no longer available. The Mopar Synthetic Manual Transmission Lubricant is very expensive. Does AMSOIL offer a transmission fluid that is compatible with the NV4500’s carbon fiber synchro rings?

Our answer: Yes, we offer the AMSOIL Synthetic 75W-90 Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube (product code: MTG). MTG 75W90 meets the API GL-4 and Chrysler/Dodge/Mopar MS-9070 specifications.

AMSOIL Heavy Duty Metal ProtectorA reader asks: I’ve seen where a number of AMSOIL aerosol spray products are listed on the US AMSOIL website, but are not included in the Canadian AMSOIL price list. Can a Canadian still buy products like AMSOIL Heavy Duty Metal Protector from the US site?

Our answer:  Unfortunately, several AMSOIL aerosol products cannot be imported into Canada. This is because some AMSOIL spray products exceed Canadian volatile organic compound (or “VOC”) limits.

The complete list of AMSOIL aerosol products that cannot be brought into Canada are listed below. You may see these products listed on the AMSOIL corporate site, but they disappear when logged in from a Canadian account.

As you’ll see, AMSOIL Heavy Duty Metal Protector is one of the products that cannot be shipped into Canada.

What Are Volatile Organic Compounds?

A VOC is a category of chemical compounds that are easily converted to gas or vapor. There is a wide range of VOCs. Canada tightened restrictions on VOCs in recent years to curb products that could harm air quality.

AMSOIL OE 0W-16 Synthetic Motor OilThe 0W-16 motor oil viscosity is now on the market and will be the factory-fill in a growing number of popular car engines.

The immediate question for many might be “Is 0W-16 Too Thin?”. We cover that question in a post here.

Let’s look at 0W-16 motor oil by the numbers. Below are common motor oil metrics comparing 0W-16 with 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30 engine oils.

What Is A 0W-16 Motor Oil?

The 0W-16 motor oil viscosity is now suggested for the 2018 (and newer) Honda Fit and Toyota Camry (2.5L engines). This motor oil grade meets the criteria of “0W” winter weight and “16” high-temperature viscosity.

0W-16 Motor Oil By The Numbers

The 0W-16 motor oil example we will be using is AMSOIL OE 0W-16 Synthetic Motor Oil. To compare apples to apples, we will use the AMSOIL OE Series 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30.

Kinematic Viscosity at 40°C

Kinematic viscosity measures a motor oil’s resistance to flow under gravity. This viscosity test is measured in “centistokes” (or “cSt”).

Below are the kinematic viscosity numbers for AMSOIL OE Series Synthetic 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30 measured at 40°C. Note that the 0W-16 viscosity at 40°C (104°F) is about 57.6% of the viscosity of 5W-30.

0W-16 0W-205W-205W-30
36.5 cSt46.0 cSt48.5 cSt63.4 cSt

Kinematic Viscosity at 100°C

At 100°C (212°F), 0W-16 is 65% of the viscosity of 5W-30. Note that 0W-20 and 5W-20 have the exact same viscosity at this temperature. Keep in mind that they both measure as 20-weight oils at hot temperatures.

0W-16 0W-205W-205W-30
7.2 cSt8.6 cSt8.6 cSt11.0 cSt

Cold Cranking Simulator Viscosity

This industry standard test simulates how well an engine oil will crank during cold temperatures. The motor oil test sample is cooled to a specific temperature. A motor stator is then spun in the cold oil. The resistance created by the cold oil is measured and converted to “centipoise” (or “cP”). Centipoise is a viscosity measurement unit. Higher centipoise values mean that a greater amount of energy is required to crank over the oil in cold temps.

“0W” motor oils are measured at -35°C, while “5W” motor oils are measured at -30°C.

0W-16 0W-205W-205W-30
4781 cP @-35°C5859 cP @-35°C4310 cP @-30°C4555 cP @-30°C

Cold Pour Point

The cold-pour-point is simply determined at the temperature where a motor oil stops flowing. Note that as both the 0W-16 and 0W-20 have a “0W” winter viscosity, they end up with identical cold-pour-points.

0W-16 0W-205W-205W-30
-48°C (-54°F)-48°C (-54°F)-44°C (-47°F)-44°C (-47°F)

Noack Volatility

The Noack Volatility test procedure heats a motor oil to 250°C and exposes it to moving air for one hour. The amount of oil lost to evaporation during this test is shown by percentage. Lighter viscosity motor oils will tend to have higher volatility losses.

0W-16 0W-205W-205W-30
12.4%12.0%8.6%9.4%

High Temperature/High Shear

The high temperature/high shear (HTHS) test replicates a motor oil’s ability to flow through tight tolerances of an engine and protect fast moving engine parts. First, a motor oil sample is heated to 150°C and exposed to steady shearing. The viscosity of the oil is measured in “centipoise” (cP). A 5W-30 (being thicker) will naturally achieve a higher HTHS value than a 0W-20 or a 0W-16.

A higher HTHS result presumably offers better wear control. A lower HTTS value generally offers better fuel economy.

Today’s engines and low HTHS motor oils are designed to achieve dependable wear control and long engine life.

If high HTHS oils were the be all/end all, we would be using 15W-40 in our passenger car/light truck engines. That simply isn’t necessary or feasible. The HTTS number should be considered as another viscosity indicator rather than a determining factor in wear control.

New AMSOIL OE 0W-16 Synthetic Motor OilAMSOIL’s new OE 0W-16 Synthetic Motor Oil is now available for sale. This brand-new viscosity is offered in the value-priced OE Series to start. We suspect that as the 0W-16 grade becomes more prevalent, it will eventually be offered in AMSOIL’s premium XL and Signature Series lines.

Where Can I Buy 0W-16 Engine Oil?

Oildepot can ship this AMSOIL Synthetic 0W-16 to your door from warehouses in Canada and the United States. We have wholesale programs for personal-use as well as for dealers and shops. Contact us for a wholesale price list using the form on this page.

Why Did AMSOIL Come Out With A 0W-16?

The 2018-19 Honda Fit and the 2018-19 Toyota Camry (2.5L conventional and hybrid engines) recommend the use of 0W-16 motor oil. Automakers are scrounging for every conceivable way to improve fuel economy. Make no mistake, that is why this new ultra-thin motor oil viscosity is on the market. Expect automakers to spec 0W-16 for more models in the very near future.

Will 0W-16 Be Too Thin?

We discuss this question in our post “Is 0W-16 Motor Oil Too Thin?“. We believe that engine design and motor oil chemistry have reached the point where 0W-16 is very viable. Extensive testing goes into industry motor oil specifications and engine technology. We are confident that the homework on 0W-16 is complete. You can bet your last dollar that AMSOIL OE 0W-16 was rigorously tested. It will provide the heavy-duty synthetic wear protection that AMSOIL is famous for.

Remember that many motorists had grave concerns when the 5W-20 motor oil grade was introduced almost two decades ago. Now, the majority of modern passenger cars and light-trucks use 5W-20 or 0W-20. After hundreds of millions of miles of use, 20-weight motor oil has been proven to offer excellent wear protection.

We predict that the 0W-16 motor oil grade will eventually deliver the same successful track record.
