Synthetic 2-Stroke And 4-Stroke Oils For Snowmobiles

AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector OilInterceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil
Interceptor is the benchmark for modern high-performance 2-stroke oils. This is the premium option for the very latest 2019 2-stroke engines from Ski-Doo, Polaris and Arctic Cat. Interceptor is also a great choice for older 2-stroke engines needing the best possible oil. Interceptor provides exceptional wear protection, clean power valves, low-smoke and a -56°C cold pour point. A reasonably priced replacement for Arctic Cat APV and C-TEC2, Polaris VES and VES-Extreme and Ski-Doo XPS Synthetic 2-Stroke Oils.

AMSOIL Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector OilSynthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil
AMSOIL Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil is ideal for recreational, utility and older snow machines. A great choice for fan- or liquid-cooled engines. Also suitable for motors equipped with variable exhaust power valves. AMSOIL Injector Oil provides exceptional synthetic 2-stroke performance at a great price. This is a fantastic upgrade over mineral, semi-synthetic and many synthetic 2-stroke oils.

AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing OilDominator Synthetic Racing 2-Stroke Oil
A “racing only” synthetic 2-stroke oil. For highly-modified, hot-running engines that are torn down frequently. Provides exceptional high-RPM, high-temp protection. Dominator is formulated to deliver maximum power output.

For recreational snowmobiles, Interceptor is the better choice, regardless of hard the engine is pushed. Dominator Racing Oil does not contain adequate detergents for the power valves in “everyday” sleds.

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic 0W-40 Motor OilFormula 4-Stroke 0W-40 Synthetic Powersports Engine Oil
A shear-stable 0W-40 motor oil for four-stroke snowmobile engines (including turbo models). The robust synthetic formula allows this 0W-40 to protect against extreme operating temperatures and heavy loads. The cold-pour-point of -51°C provides fast oil flow and improved start-ups.

Synthetic Chaincase Oil And Chassis Grease

AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase Oil
This maintenance item is a no-brainer for almost any snowmobile. AMSOIL Chaincase Oil contains extreme-pressure additives to provide maximum protection. Pours down to -46°C for smooth cold weather performance. Prevents rust and corrosion during off-season. Ideal for most all brands of chaincases.

AMSOIL Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease
AMSOIL Water Resistant Grease resists washout from water, snow, ice and mud. Keeps vital suspension and chassis components lubricated under all conditions. Provides smooth performance in cold conditions. Protects against rust and corrosion.

Snowmobile Fuel Additives

AMSOIL Quickshot Gasoline Additive
Prevents ethanol damage in 2- or 4-stroke engines. Cleans injectors and carbs as well as spark plugs and combustion chambers. Stabilizes fuel to prevent gum and varnish formation. A smart, economical maintenance practice for every tank of gas.

AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer
Provides long-term fuel preservation in 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines. Adding stabilizer to fresh gasoline is a must before off-season storage.

AMSOIL Dominator Octane Boost
Prevents engine knock in high compression engines. An ideal solution for situations where premium or high-octane fuel is not available.

AMSOIL Interceptor vs. Polaris VES Syn 2-Stroke OilPolaris offers three 2-stroke oil options for the 2016 snowmobile season. Let’s examine the Canadian and US pricing for each Polaris product, look at their intended uses and see which AMSOIL synthetic 2-stroke oil matches up. Then we’ll compare the pricing of Polaris 2-Stroke Oil versus AMSOIL.

About AMSOIL Prices

As we are prohibited from publishing AMSOIL’s wholesale prices, the AMSOIL price comparisons used below are computed using our wholesale program prices “by the case” and include average shipping costs. Remote destinations may have extra freight charges attached.

About Polaris Oil Prices

The prices listed below for Polaris 2-stroke oil products are based on averages from randomly selected Canadian and US Polaris dealers. Retail prices may vary at other locations.

Polaris VES Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Prices

  • $54.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $46.99 in USA (per US gallon)

Previously known as “VES Gold Plus”, VES Full Synthetic is Polaris’s most popular 2-stroke oil for their modern snowmobiles. VES Full Synthetic is formulated to keep variable exhaust power valves clean, emit low exhaust smoke levels deliver acceptable wear protection.

We can offer an outstanding upgrade over VES Full Synthetic that provides elite performance and protection for your Polaris snowmobile engine. AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is perhaps the most renowned 2-stroke sled oil in the industry. Interceptor delivers ultra-clean power valves, maximum power output, extreme cold weather performance and low-smoke. Strong positive customer feedback reinforces these claims.

Price of Polaris VES Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Versus AMSOIL Interceptor

Depending on your location, AMSOIL Interceptor can be shipped to your door for 20% to 30% less than Polaris VES Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil when using our wholesale programs. We would argue that Interceptor is a significant upgrade over VES Synthetic, so it is really win-win for Polaris owners wanting to use a great synthetic oil.

Polaris VES Race Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Prices

  • $62.99 Canada (per US gallon)
  • $52.99 USA (per US gallon)

This is Polaris’s top 2-stroke oil that is designed for racing and high-performance trail use. As VES Full Synthetic covers the needs of most high performance snowmobilers, some Polaris dealers do not stock VES Race Oil. VES Race is designed with a high film strength for extra anti-wear protection. VES Race is basically Polaris’s “severe service” 2-stroke oil.

We offer two AMSOIL synthetic substitutes for Polaris VES Race that we would suggest are a strong upgrade at a better price.

For racing and highly modified snowmobile engines (only!), we offer AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing 2-Stroke Oil. Dominator 2-Stroke has a very high film strength that provides an infallible wear barrier during heavy loads and extended periods of extremely hot operating temperatures. This is the exact formula used by AMSOIL’s snocross racing teams, so you are truly buying professional-grade racing oil with Dominator.

For hard recreational riding with relatively stock engines, go with Interceptor. As Dominator 2-Stroke Oil is designed for the extreme heat of racing and/or modified engines, stock engines will not run hot enough to completely burning off Dominator’s additive package. This applies to all stock engines. AMSOIL Interceptor is a great substitute for Polaris VES Race Oil, no matter how hard you push your stock engine.

Price of Polaris VES Race Full Synthetic 2-Cycle Engine Oil Versus AMSOIL

We can smoke the retail price you would pay for VES Synthetic 2-Stroke Race Oil at your Polaris dealer. When purchasing a case of 4 US gallons, both Interceptor and Dominator are well over of 30% cheaper than VES Race Oil. For most locations, that includes shipping right to your door.

Polaris Premium Blue Synthetic Blend 2-Cycle Engine Oil Prices

  • $44.99 Canada (per US gallon)
  • $39.00 USA (per US gallon)

Polaris Premium Blue is a semi-synthetic 2-stroke oil offered by Polaris dealers for snowmobile engines without variable exhaust power valves. This could be for older snowmobiles or newer sleds with the 550cc fan-cooled engine. Premium Blue is designed to provide adequate performance at a moderate price.

We can offer two full full synthetic oils that roundly defeat the semi-synthetic Premium Blue in both performance and price. First we have the “AIO” AMSOIL Injector Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil. It can be used in any snowmobile engine, including those with exhaust power valves. Polaris specifies that Premium Blue should not be used in snowmobile engines with power valves, implying that it will not burn cleanly enough to prevent deposit formation. AIO Injector offers full synthetic benefits including an exceptionally low cold pour point, robust wear control, low smoke and reduced friction.

At the price point for which Polaris is retailing Premium Blue, our first-rate AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil could also be considered as a viable replacement. Interceptor is certainly suitable for older engines, sleds without power valves or the very latest 2-strokes on the market.

Price of Polaris Premium Blue Synthetic Blend 2-Cycle Engine Oil versus AMSOIL Injector Oil

“AIO” AMSOIL Injector Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil can be shipped to your door for around 30% less than you can pick up Polaris Premium Blue 2-Stroke Oil at your dealer. Again this a full synthetic versus a synthetic blend, so in our mind, this is a no-brainer.

The elite quality AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is anywhere from 6% to 15% less money than Premium Blue (depending on your location). Those in the market for Premium Blue may not want to go for this high-end full-synthetic oil, but this illustrates Interceptor’s great value.

Conclusion

Oildepot sells the finest 2-stroke oils in the snowmobile industry at better prices than the oils found at your Polaris dealer. Contact us using the form on this page or call us at 1-800-748-5781.

ait-vs-apv-syn-2-strokeFor the 2016 snowmobile season, Arctic Cat offers three distinct 2-stroke oils at their dealerships. Let’s explore the Canadian and US pricing for each product and also discuss the engine types and riding styles for which each is intended. Then we’ll analyze the pricing of each Arctic Cat 2-Stroke Oil versus AMSOIL.

About AMSOIL 2-Stroke Oil Prices

We are prohibited from publishing AMSOIL’s wholesale prices. The AMSOIL price comparisons used below are computed using our wholesale program prices when purchasing a case of four gallons and include average shipping costs. Remote destinations may have extra freight charges attached. You certainly can request an AMSOIL wholesale price list using the contact form on this page.

About Arctic Cat Oil Prices

The prices listed below for Arctic Cat 2-stroke oil products are based on averages from randomly selected Canadian and US Arctic Cat dealers. Prices may vary at other locations.

Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $57.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $45.00 in US (per US gallon)

APV Synthetic Oil is Arctic Cat’s all-round 2-stroke oil that is suitable for every model except for those equipped with the C-TEC2 600cc engine (more on that below). As the name implies, CAT APV Oil is designed to be compatible with Cat’s variable exhaust power valve system called APV (Arctic Power Valves). This system has been used for years on various Suzuki-made 2-stroke Arctic Cat engines. Their current “8000” series 800cc engine would be a prime candidate. APV Synthetic Oil is designed to resist clogging these power valves while offering acceptable performance and protection.

An ideal substitute for Arctic Cat APV Synthetic would be AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil. Interceptor has been a widely-renowned industry standard for high performance 2-stroke snowmobiles for years. It delivers exceptionally clean APV valves, huge anti-wear protection, low-smoke and incredible cold flow characteristics. Interceptor delivers all of the benefits of an elite synthetic injector oil at a very reasonable price.

Price Of Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Versus AMSOIL Interceptor

On average, Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is 37% more expensive than AMSOIL Interceptor shipped right to your door. This applies to prices from either Canadian or US Arctic Cat dealers.

Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $24.99 in Canada, (48 US Ounce Pouch, equivalent to $66.64 per US gallon)
  • $19.99 in US (48 US Ounce Pouch, equivalent to $53.25 per US gallon)

Cat C-TEC2 oil is commonly stocked in 48 fluid ounce (1420 ml) pouches. The Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic Oil was designed specifically for Cat’s C-TEC2 600cc 2-stroke engine. The C-TEC2 engine is a new generation 2-stroke that employs direct injection and precise electronically-metered fuel and oil delivery. The result is an engine that utilizes every drop of fuel and much less oil than traditional 2-stroke engines, while producing exceptional horsepower relative to its displacement. The huge challenge for Arctic Cat engineers was preventing premature wear when so little 2-stroke oil is consumed. Arctic Cat decided to offer an upscale 2-stroke oil that could withstand the relatively “dry” operating conditions of the C-TEC2.

We offer a direct replacement synthetic oil that is formulated to deliver dependable wear control in today’s direct injection 2-stroke engines. AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is proven performer in today’s technologically advanced two-stroke engines like the Arctic Cat C-TEC2 engine and the miserly Ski-Doo E-TEC engines. Interceptor provides the best engine protection money can buy for Cat C-TEC2 600cc engines that make the most of every drop of 2-stroke oil.

Price Of Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic Oil Versus AMSOIL Interceptor

The retail price of Arctic Cat C-TEC2 Synthetic Oil at your Cat dealer is anywhere from 58% to 68% more expensive than AMSOIL Interceptor. Having a case of Interceptor shipped to your door using our wholesale programs can save you a lot of money with all of the benefits of a premium synthetic 2-stroke engine oil.

Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Prices

  • $41.99 in Canada (per US gallon)
  • $32.00 in US (per US gallon)

Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil is offered only for engines that are not equipped with APV variable exhaust power valves. The reason being is that non-synthetic 2-cycle oils do not burn cleanly and have a tendency to clog power valves with carbon deposits. Blocked power valves can lead to power loss and even engine failure. Non-APV engines would include Arctic Cat’s latest 4000 series engines (500cc) and their 2000 series engines (565cc), as well as older 2-stroke engines that do not have power valves.

In a perfect world, wouldn’t it be great to have a full-synthetic substitute for Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil that sells for a lower price? We can do that! Despite being much less expensive than Cat’s other 2-stroke oils, in our opinion, Formula 50 is way overpriced and not a great value for your dollar. We suggest using AMSOIL “AIO” Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil instead. It offers all of the benefits you would expect of a full-synthetic 2-cycle oil including low-smoke, reduced engine deposits, exceptional cold weather performance and reduced friction. AIO can even be used in engines with variable exhaust power valves.

Price Of Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Versus AMSOIL AIO Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil

The retail price of the conventional Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil Synthetic Oil is between 26% and 29% more expensive than our wholesale price for AMSOIL “AIO” Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil (when purchased by the case). This includes shipping costs right to your door. AMSOIL AIO Synthetic Injector Oil is a better deal all day long. In fact, Formula 50 is priced very closely to the ultra-premium AMSOIL Interceptor.

Conclusion

Oildepot can put a full-synthetic 2-stroke oil in your Arctic Cat engine that will improve every operational aspect at a better price than the oil found at your Arctic Cat dealer. Call us at 1-800-748-5781.

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke 0W-40 Synthetic Motor OilFormula 4-Stroke Power Sports 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil
If you have a four-stroke snowmobile, then there is a simple, reliable solution for your engine oil needs. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke 0W-40 provides enduring protection in everything from turbo-charged mountain sleds to trail-ridden family machines. It resists shear-down in extreme heat and pours down to -51°C. This 0W-40 snowmobile oil can replace any viscosity from 0W-40 to 5W-30 to 5W-40 to 5W-50.

AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase OilAMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase Oil
This 100% synthetic chaincase oil is an ideal substitute for OEM and aftermarket synthetic and mineral chaincase lubes. This oil prevents metal-to-metal wear while lowering friction. A pour-point  of -46°C, anti-rust protection, universal compatibility and a low price tag sum up a product that can upgrade any snowmobile.

In our continuing preview series of the 2015 snowmobile models, let’s take a look at the latest offerings from Arctic Cat. For this season, the 54 year-old company offers several new models and an expansion of their engine options. The Green brand offers a whopping 75 models with options that can accommodate every imaginable application. We also offer specific oil recommendations for each Arctic Cat engine.

Suzuki Engines Stay for 2015

Suzuki has been supplying Arctic Cat with two-stroke engines since 1976 and was a major shareholder in the sled maker until not long ago. In 2010 Arctic Cat announced that it was ending their supply relationship with Suzuki and in 2011 they bought back all of Suzuki’s shares in the company. So when the 2015 line was released and it was announced that Suzuki engines were still on board (save for the Cat-built 600cc unit), the industry was more than a little shocked. But it was a pleasant surprise for many, as Suzuki’s reliability is legendary and the flagship 800cc power plant is highly regarded. Suzuki engines will continue to grace Cat sleds for until at least 2018. Suzuki is also supplying the 1056cc “5000” engine and the turbocharged 1056cc “9000” engine

Continued Four-Stroke Power From Yamaha

In 2014, Yamaha and Arctic Cat embarked on a cross-supply relationship whereby Yamaha would provide their proven four-stroke engines to Cat and in turn, Cat would provide Yamaha with their Procross chassis. For 2015, Yamaha continues to supply their 1049cc 4-stoke mill to Cat that can be found throughout their performance, crossover, mountain, touring and utility sleds.

Arctic Cat Engines Explained

With venerable engine makers like Suzuki and Yamaha in their corner, Arctic Cat can concentrate on the nuts and bolts of sled design. So it’s little wonder that the Arctic Cat brand has such a faithful following. But engine monikers like 4000, 5000, 6000, etc; doesn’t mean much to the casual observer. So we thought we would provide a description of each 2015 Arctic Cat engine.

2000- A fan-cooled, 565cc two-stroke engine made by Suzuki. The 2000 series engine puts out 65 horsepower and can be found in the Lynx touring and family sleds as well as the Bearcat utilty series.

4000- A liquid-cooled, 499cc two-stroke engine made by Suzuki. This unit generates 85 horsepower and is found in some ZR performance sleds.

5000 C-TEC4- A 1056cc, twin cylinder four-stoke engine made by Suzuki. This engine puts out 125 horsepower and is found in some ZR performance and Bearcat utility machines.

6000 C-TEC2- This 600cc 2-stroke engine is the only power plant manufactured by Arctic Cat. This unit puts out 125 horsepower and is found in the ZR performance, XF crossover and M mountain series.

7000 C-TEC4- This 1049cc, three cylinder four-stroke engine by Yamaha lays down 135 horsepower. The 7000 engine is found in the ZR performance, XF crossover, M mountain and Pantera touring snowmobiles.

8000- This Suzuki-made 800cc two-stroke is one of the most popular high performance engines in the snowmobile industry. It cranks out 160 horsepower and is found in the ZR, XF and M sleds.

9000 C-TEC4- A twin cylinder, 1056cc Suzuki engine that is turbo-charged and puts out just under 180 horsepower. The 9000 series engine can be found in the high performance versions of the ZR, XF and M machines.

Return of the Pantera and Lynx

Those of us who are old enough the snowmobiles of the late 1970’s may recall the Pantera and Lynx models from that era. Arctic Cat has resurrected these names for 2015. The Pantera models are designed for smooth, comfortable long-distance touring. They are equipped with the 7000 1049cc Yamaha four-stroke motor. The Lynx models are designed for recreational rides and light touring. Lynx comes equipped with the 2000 series fan-cooled 565cc two-stroke engine.

ZR and XF Series Expansion

With the wide variety of engines at Arctic Cat’s disposal, they were able to offer a multitude of choices to the high performance/trail and ditch-banger crowd that are inclined to ride the ZR series. The ZR line grows from 16 to 24 distinct sleds this season, with 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000 and 9000 series engine options.

The XF series is a hybrid of trail and mountain features to create a machine that is suitable for deep powder or high performance cross-country work. New to the XF line for 2015 is the 6000 600cc two-stroke and the 7000 1049cc four-stroke engines.

Three New “M” Mountain Series Sleds

Arctic Cat has added three new mountain sled models to their M series (which now boasts 13 models). New is the the M 6000 153 (153 inch track), M 6000 Sno Pro 153 and M 7000 Sno Pro 153. The Sno Pro package adds 2.6 inch track lugs, Fox front and rear shocks and a series of weight-saving components.

AMSOIL Synthetic Oil for Arctic Cat Engines

Arctic Cat offers a wide cross section of mega-performance 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines, so only high quality engine oils should be used in these motors. We have specific oil recommendations for each engine series.

4000, 6000, 8000 2-Stroke Engines
These high-output two-cycle engines are designed to rev high, run hot and push to the limit. The 6000 and 8000 series engines are equipped with the “APV” variable exhaust power valve system which does not react well to deposits left by poor quality two-stroke oil. The best option for these engines is AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic Two-Stroke Oil. This synthetic oil is highly regarded by our Cat customers who come back year after year. Interceptor is an outstanding replacement for Arctic Cat APV Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil and C-TEC2 Synthetic Two-Stroke Oil. Expect exceptional throttle response, relentless wear protection and clean operation. With our wholesale programs, we can smoke the prices of the Cat 2-stroke oils.

5000, 7000, 9000 4-Stroke Engines
For the 1056cc twin, 1049cc triple and 1056cc turbo engines from Yamaha and Suzuki, we offer a 100% synthetic four-stroke oil that has been proven by our satisfied customers in thousands of engines. The AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil is highly effective in snowmobile engines and is an ideal replacement for Arctic Cat C-TEC4 Synthetic Oil. AMSOIL Synthetic 0W-40 pours down to -51C (-60F), so your engine has instant oil circulation during cold starts. When the going gets tough, this 0W-40 provides powerful anti-wear protection and resistance to the extreme heat of turbochargers. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke is renowned for its ability to resist sheering (thinning) over long drain intervals, so your engine will enjoy full protection during long trips. When you go to store your Arctic Cat 4-stroke sled, this product also contains potent anti-rust and corrosion additives, so your engine is protected all summer long as well.

We also offer oil filters for Arctic Cat’s Suzuki 9000 C-TEC4 Engine. Our AMSOIL “EAOM109” Synthetic Oil Filters are built with premium components and offers industry-leading particle removal. So couple this full synthetic oil filter with our Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports 0W-40 and you’ve got world-class oil/filter combo at price that rivals the Arctic Cat C-TEC4 Oil Change Kit.

2000 2-Stroke Engine
We can offer two synthetic two-stroke oil recommendations for this fan-cooled 565cc engine. The high-end Interceptor (suggested for 4000, 6000, 8000) is certainly more than suitable for this engine, but if you want a lower cost option, try AMSOIL Synthetic Two-Stroke Injector Oil. This synthetic oil will keep your 2000 Series engine running strong for years, while delivering exceptional, low-smoke performance. AMSOIL Synthetic Injector Oil is significant upgrade over Arctic Cat Formula 50 Mineral 2-Stroke Oil at a better price (even with shipping). Formula 50 is not a synthetic oil and Arctic Cat does not recommend using it in engines with variable exhaust power valves. AMSOIL’s Injector Oil is a full synthetic oil and can be used in engines with power valves. This tells us that the AMSOIL product burns cleaner, offers a superior detergent additive package.
