AMSOIL Synthetic Oil Options for Arctic Cat Snowmobiles

AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil
This renowned 2-stroke injector oil is a superb choice for any high-performance Arctic Cat snowmobile engine. Interceptor is designed to keep APV valves clean in C-TEC2 600 and 800 engines, as well as all Suzuki-made Cat engines. This full-synthetic oil delivers the utmost wear protection, optimum performance, low-smoke and reliable cold weather flow. Interceptor is formulated to replace Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil and Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil.

AMSOIL Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil
This 100% synthetic 2-stroke injector oil is ideal for recreational, work and trail snowmobiles at a very competitive price. AMSOIL Injector Oil offers outstanding wear control, clean engine internals and improved operation at a great price. AMSOIL Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is an ideal replacement and performance upgrade over Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil.

AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil 
For racing purposes or heavily modified 2-stroke engines only. Provides wear control under extreme heat and exceptional loads. Dominator should only be used in racing engines that are torn down frequently. Interceptor is a better choice for high-performance applications as it contains a strong detergent package that will provide cleaner engine internals and power valves.

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil
Provides iron-clad protection  for all Arctic Cat 4-cycle engines made by Yamaha, Suzuki and Kymco. Ideal for turbo-charged and no-turbo engines. The full-synthetic 0W-40 flows down to -60°F for fast startup protection. This product also withstands ultra-hot operating temperatures and the toughest conditions. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke 0W-40 is a world-class replacement for Arctic Cat C-TEC4 Synthetic 4-Stroke Engine Oil.

Free Shipping on AMSOIL Synthetic OilStarting January 8th, 2018, AMSOIL will introduce PERMANENT free shipping for Preferred Customers and AMSOIL Dealers. This exciting new change will come into effect for both Canada and the United States. 

Free Shipping For AMSOIL Preferred Customers

Orders over $100 in the US and $130 in Canada will be eligible for free express shipping.

For US orders under $100, there will be a flat shipping rate of just $8.99. Canadian orders under $130 will have a flat shipping rate of $11.99.

An AMSOIL Preferred Customer membership is a wholesale account for individuals who wish to buy AMSOIL products at low prices for their own use. Here is more information on the AMSOIL Preferred Customer program.

Free Shipping For AMSOIL Dealers

AMSOIL dealers can enjoy free shipping on orders over $450 in Canada and $350 in the United States.

For orders under $450 in Canada there will be a flat shipping rate of $13.99. For orders under $350 in the US, a flat shipping rate of just $11.99 will apply.

Does Free Shipping Apply To All Regions?

Not necessarily. Some remote and rural regions may be subject to higher shipping rates, so this offer may not apply. Contact us with your zip or postal code and we can check on this.

Why Would Preferred Customers Have Better Shipping Rates Than Dealers?

Our speculation is that because AMSOIL dealers already earn a cash commission on their orders, there is less margin to provide free shipping on smaller orders.

We can set you up with an AMSOIL Preferred Customer membership or Dealership. Contact us for pricing using the form on this page or call us at 1-800-748-5781.

AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-20 Synthetic Motor OilAMSOIL has reformulated their flagship Signature Series Synthetic Oils and the company is quite excited with the results. AMSOIL is touting Signature Series as the undisputed world’s best motor oil.

What Is Signature Series?

Signature Series is AMSOIL’s most advanced line of synthetic motor oils for automotive applications with gasoline engines.

Signature Series is available in the following grades:

Why Did AMSOIL Reformulate Signature Series?

AMSOIL reformulated the Signature Series line in preparation for the new ILSAC GF-6 motor oil specification. This new industry specification will be introduced sometime in spring 2018.
The ILSAC GF-6 standard will address modern motor oil issues such as fuel economy improvement and the ability to perform well in turbo and gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines.

What Are The Benefits Of New Signature Series?

Once the new formula was finalized and tested, even AMSOIL was astonished at the finished product. Terms like “over-engineered”, “exotic” and “world’s best” were used to describe what was previously a very formidable product.

The upshot of the improvements were durability, cleaning ability and powerful heat resistance.

The latest rendition of Signature Series resists thickening, even after being exposed to extreme heat and long service intervals. AMSOIL boasts that the viscosity of Signature Series will be roughly the same after 25,000 miles of service as the day it was poured into the engine.

As for cleaning capability, AMSOIL offers that Signature Series has 50 per cent more cleaning properties than their OE Synthetic Series. As the OE Synthetic Series is a pretty good product in its own right, this is impressive. AMSOIL claims that there likely isn’t a motor oil made that would match the Signature Series cleaning power.

New Signature Series Test Data

AMSOIL performed extensive testing on the new Signature Series formula and the results were very impressive. Here are the highlights.

Engine Wear Testing

Signature Series 0W-20 (the lightest grade) was subjected to the Sequence IVA test. In this test, an engine alternates between 50 minutes of idling and 10 minutes of high RPM operation for 100 hours. This simulates conditions that can create excessive wear. Upon completion of the test, the camshaft was removed and measured for wear in 84 places. Signature Series showed 75 per cent less wear than required by the API SN specification.

AMSOIL Signature Series Cam Wear Graph

Low-Speed Pre-Ignition Test

Many of today’s engines employ gasoline direct injection (GDI) systems. GDI engines can be prone to oil-related deposits. Deposits can cause low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI). This type of pre-ignition can cause poor operation and engine damage. Using the General Motors LSPI testing protocol, the new AMSOIL Signature Series formula provided 100% prevention against this issue.

Turbocharger Protection Testing

Turbochargers are back and more popular than ever. Hot turbos are notorious for being very hard on motor oil. AMSOIL put new Signature Series through the GM Turbo Coking Test. In this test, the motor oil is put through 2000 cycles of extreme heat soaks. To pass this test, the temperature within the turbo must not rise beyond 13 per cent. New Signature Series kept the temperature increase at just 3.6 per cent. This was 72 per cent better than the minimum requirement for the GM dexos 2 Gen 2 specification.

Astonishing Horsepower Preservation

This was our favorite and most telling “real world” test. AMSOIL installed the new Signature Series 5W-30 in a Ford F-150 with the turbocharged 3.5L Ecoboost engine. They measured the horsepower and torque output at the beginning of the test and then ran the truck for 100,000 miles (160,000 km). Oil was changed at 25,000 mile intervals. At the conclusion of the test, the engine was tested on the dynamometer again. As the chart below shows, horsepower and torque output remained all but unchanged. This is testament to AMSOIL’s extraordinary wear control.

AMSOIL Signature Series Horsepower Graph

Resistance To Viscosity Increase Test

The idea behind the Sequence IIV Test is to determine how well an engine oil resists thickening when exposed to extreme heat. AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 was installed in a test Chrysler 3.6L Pentastar engine. The test is then conducted with oil temperatures steady at 304°F. This is 100°F above normal oil temperatures. Signature Series thickened by just 6 per cent in this difficult test. The passing grade in this is to keep thickening under 150 per cent.

AMSOIL Signature Series Viscosity Increase Graph

Volatility Resistance Test

This test measures how well a motor oil can resist oil burn-off. In the NOACK Volatility Test, a motor oil is exposed to very hot airflow set at 482°F for one hour. The oil is then tested to determine how much oil had burned off. New AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-20 lost just 5.8 per cent of its volume in this torture test. The API SN limit is 15 per cent.

Remarkable Cold-Cranking Ability

Receiving fast oil flow in cold weather is vital to prevent engine wear at start up. Each of the new AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oils boast spectacular cold-pour-point numbers. This is the temperature where an engine oil stops flowing.

  • 0W-20 -53°C (-63°F)
  • 5W-20 -50°C (-58°F)
  • 0W-30 -50°C (-58°F)
  • 5W-30 -50°C (-58°F)
  • 10W-30 -47°C (-52°F)
  • 0W-40 -50°C (-58°F)
  • 5W-50 -48°C (-54°F)

Will the Signature Series Price Change?

No, the price of the latest Signature Series product line will not change. AMSOIL is suggesting that a higher volume of expensive ingredients was not required. What was more important was a strong commitment to research and development. AMSOIL has been formulating synthetic oils for 45 years and the new Signature Series line is the culmination of that legacy. AMSOIL customers can enjoy the dividends of this vast experience at a very reasonable price.

A reader asks: I’ve got a 2012 Cadillac Escalade that calls for a 75W-85 API GL-5 gear oil in the rear differential. AMSOIL’ s application guide suggests Severe Gear 75W-90. Is this correct? Can I safely replace 75W-85 with 75W-90?

Our answer: Yes, 75W-85 gear oil can most definitely be replaced by 75W-90. In fact, we know that some GM dealers will use 75W-90 gear lube in applications where Chevrolet/Buick/GMC/Cadillac suggests 75W-85.

Why Does GM Suggest 75W-85 GL-5 Gear Oil In Some Cars And Trucks?

We can only speculate on why GM specifies 75W-85 for some vehicles. Here are our theories.

  1.  To boost mileage. Auto manufacturers have to meet government-mandated fuel economy standards across their product lines. If a car maker doesn’t meet these fuel economy targets, they can be subject to big fines. These fines can be in the tens of millions of dollars. That’s why automakers are going to lighter oils in the engines and transmissions and differentials.
    You may not notice the fraction of a mile-per-gallon improvement because of the thinner oil in your diff. But the automaker bean counters do and they are banking on every trick in the book to boost collective fuel economy.
  2.  A 75W-85 GL-5 gear oil is relatively rare. Therefore, consumers will feel that the safe choice to go back to the dealer for service. There will be a natural fear to deviate from the exact viscosity in the owner’s manual. Again, we know for a fact that some GM dealers simply use 75W-90 anyway.

AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® 75W-90 Synthetic Extreme Pressure Lubricant

Why Use AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-90 Instead Of AC Delco 75W-85?

  1.  Very close viscosity. Most diffs were designed with 75W-90 in mind. Going to 75W-85 was a fuel-economy-boosting endeavor. AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-90 is designed to replace, 75W-90, 75W-85, 80W-90, SAE 80 or SAE 90 gear oils. It can replace any of these with no worries or risk.
  2. No fuel economy penalty. As AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-90 is an ultra-low-friction synthetic formula. There will not be a measurable loss of fuel economy by going with this slightly thicker oil.
  3. World-class wear control. Severe Gear 75W-90 is formulated to provide elite wear protection. It is designed to withstand high horsepower, heavy loads and extreme heat or cold.
  4. Reasonable cost. At our wholesale prices, AMSOIL Severe Gear Synthetic 75W-90 is about half the cost of AC Delco 75W-85 API GL-5 Gear Oil.

What About Limited-Slip Additives?

If your GM car or truck has a limited slip rear axle, definitely pick up a bottle of AMSOIL Slip-Lock Differential Additive or the AC Delco Limited Slip Axle Lubricant Additive. AMSOIL Severe Gear contains limited-slip additive, but we find it’s still a good idea to add about 2/3 bottle of limited-slip additive for good measure. If using AC Delco 75W-85 GL-5 Gear Oil, add the full bottle of limited-slip additive.

KTM MotorcycleA reader asks: A lot of motorcycle owners use Shell Rotella T6 diesel oil in their engines/transmissions. Is there any downside to using diesel motor oil in motorcycles? As Shell Rotella can be found fairly cheap, why would I want to use the more expensive AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils?

Our Answer: Diesel motor oils can provide (somewhat) adequate service in motorcycle engines and transmissions. But diesel oil used as a motorcycle oil won’t necessarily provide good value. Even if it has a lower price tag.

Dedicated motorcycle oils have a precise base oil and additive package combination. This balance of ingredients delivers specific protective and performance characteristics. This chemistry will not be found in diesel motor oil.

The reason that diesel engine oils can be used in motorcycle engines is that they do not contain friction modifiers. The friction modifiers found in passenger car motor oils (for gasoline-powered car/truck engines) will quickly glaze wet-clutch plates.

Here are some of the features of AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil that are not a consideration in the design of diesel engine oils.

Motorcycle Oil Vs. Diesel Engine Oil In Transmissions

The biggest knock on diesel engine oils in this case is that they are not formulated for motorcycle transmission use. When used in common sumps (for both engine and transmission), diesel oil can be prone to sheering down and losing viscosity. Some diesel engines have timing gears, but this is nothing like the concentrated thrashing of a motorcycle transmission. The meshing of gears in motorcycle transmissions can rapidly sheer down oils that are not equipped for that type of use. Therefore, this rapid thinning will also hurt the diesel oil’s ability to protect the engine in common sumps.

AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils are loaded with ingredients that withstand heavy transmission use. AMSOIL is also famous for lowering transmission friction for buttery smooth shifting. This factor alone is well worth the step up to AMSOIL.

Wet-Clutch Performance And Longevity

Diesel oils may not cause clutch plate glazing, but they are not formulated with wet-clutch performance and preservation in mind. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils are formulated to fight clutch fade and provide consistent clutch “feel”. They deliver steady clutch performance under high heat and extreme loads. Dedicated motorcycle oils will maintain the correct frictional properties over long service intervals.

Motorcycle Engine Oil Withstands High RPM And Heat

High revving motorcycle engines can red-line anywhere from 5500 rpm to well north of 10,000 rpm. They can also generate extreme heat. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils withstand extended periods of high RPM and extreme heat. The low-friction formula provides cooler operating temps. AMSOIL has performed extensive testing to prove that their motorcycle oils can be exposed to long periods of extremely high heat (over 500°F!) and high RPM without breaking down.

AMSOIL Adds Anti-Rust Protection To Motorcycle Oil

When designing their synthetic motorcycle oils, AMSOIL borrowed anti-rust and corrosion technology from their Marine Engine Oils. Engine internals are protected from moisture ingestion and long periods of off-season storage. Diesel engine oils would not contain this level of anti-corrosion ingredients and would not be as effective at protecting engine parts from rust.

Service Interval: Some Motorcycle Oils Are Extended Drain Capable

AMSOIL designs their V-Twin and Metric Motorcycle Oils for long service intervals. They can stay in service for up to double the interval as suggested by the engine manufacturer. AMSOIL formulates these oils to withstand the heat, transmission gear thrashing, high RPM. They also have the capacity to hold clutch, transmission and combustion deposits in suspension over this interval. Diesel engines oils are not designed to provide this length of service. As mentioned, the meshing of gears in transmissions will quickly sheer down diesel motor oil and reduce its service life.

Conclusion

As we’ve shown, the formula for motorcycle oil is different from the chemistry required for diesel engines. Diesel engine oils are missing several key components. As a result, this can compromise wear control, performance and engine oil life. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils provides superior performance, better engine and transmission protection and longer service intervals.

Diesel engine oils like Shell Rotella may be cheap, but that’s about it. A good synthetic motorcycle oil like AMSOIL is about the most cost-effective upgrade one can make to a motorcycle.

AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One Fuel AdditiveNew AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One Fuel Additive is one of those products that one could argue doesn’t cost, it actually pays. This multi-faceted diesel fuel additive is a must for any diesel owner looking to maintain performance, fuel economy and engine life.

Here are the top five reasons why using Diesel All-In-One is a great idea.

1. Provides Peak Performance

AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One increases performance with a multi-pronged approach. First, powerful detergents clean out injectors providing pristine spray patterns. It also increases the diesel fuel cetane level by up to 4 points. Higher cetane optimizes combustion which promotes improved power delivery, smoother idling and surer start-ups.

2. Maximizes Fuel Economy

Fouled injector patterns can place a huge drag on fuel economy in diesel engines. Once AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One has completed its injection system clean-up, fuel economy can improve by up to 8%.

3. Prevents Diesel Fuel Freezing In Winter

The gelling of diesel fuel in cold weather is concern for all diesel engines. When diesel fuel starts to crystallize, fuel filters can become completely blocked. At this point, becoming stranded in severe winter weather becomes a real danger. AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One lowers the point at which frozen diesel fuel can plug fuel filters by 22°C (40°F). This advantage makes for much more reliable winter performance.

4. Lubricates Fuel Injectors and Pumps

Today’s ultra-low-sulfur-diesel fuels are sorely lacking in lubricant ingredients needed to promote long injector and fuel pump life. Therefore, it is vital to add a lubricating agent to every tank of fuel. AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One contains ingredients that provide critical lubrication that will deliver long fuel injector and pump life.

5. Convenience

Finally, just one bottle of AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One per fill boosts performance, maintains peaks fuel economy, preserves fuel system components and prevents winter freezing issues. This is one of the most cost-effective upgrades you can make for your diesel engines.

A reader asks: I own a Nissan Skyline GTR with the twin turbo RB26 engine. The previous owner used 0W-40 motor oil. I’ve read online that 0W-40 might be too thin. Is 10W-40 a better option? I will not be winter driving it at all, but might occasionally start it up during the nicer winter days to circulate the oil.

0W-40 Or 10W-40 For Nissan Engine?

AMSOIL 0W-40 Signature Series Synthetic OilOur answer: This model was never sold in North America, so it isn’t included in AMSOIL’s application guide. As this is an older car (RB26 models were made from 1989-1994), a search doesn’t seem offer much in the way of official Nissan oil suggestions. Contributors to Skyline forums use everything from 10W-30 to 10W-60.

The previous owner’s use of 0W-40 would be right in the middle of that range. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic 0W-40 would be a very good choice. Remember that this product is still a 40-weight oil at operating temps, so there are no grounds to call it “too thin”. It simply has a very wide operating range. Signature Series Synthetic 0W-40 also has a strong resistance to shear-down, metal-to-metal contact and volatility boil-off. It is formulated for turbo-charger service. It meets the latest Nissan GTR motor oil AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Premium Protection Motor Oilspecification. Note that it is also suggested for the 707 horsepower Dodge Hellcat engine. The wear control abilities of this product are not a concern.

Another great candidate for your Skyline would be AMSOIL Synthetic Premium Protection 10W-40 Motor Oil. Premium Protection 10W-40 is an “old school” formula that is loaded with zinc and phosphorus for powerful anti-wear protection. It is also designed to withstand the extreme heat generated by turbo-chargers. Were it our Skyline, we would likely lean toward this product over any other in the AMSOIL motor oil line-up. Not because it is a 10W-40 versus a 0W-40. More so because its high-zinc formula is ideal for older engines.
