Superior Protection for Natural Gas Engines

AMSOIL now offers premium-quality natural gas engine oils for both the stationary and vehicular natural gas engine markets: Synthetic Stationary Natural Gas Engine Oil (ANGS) and Synthetic Vehicular Natural Gas Engine Oil (ANGV). It is important for Dealers to identify which product best meets a customer’s needs.

Stationary natural gas engines incorporate roller cams, while vehicular natural gas engines use flat-tappet cams. Because the flat-tappet/camshaft lobe interface experiences extreme pressures and loads, it requires a properly-formulated natural gas engine oil fortified with anti-wear additives to reduce wear and extend flat-tappet and camshaft life. New AMSOIL Synthetic Vehicular Natural Gas Engine Oil is formulated with higher levels of zinc and phosphorus to help protect the valvetrains in vehicular and mobile applications.

Recommended for stationary natural gas engines, AMSOIL Synthetic Stationary Natural Gas Engine Oil is the same premium-quality formulation as the previous Synthetic Natural Gas Engine Oil (ANG) product, which is discontinued. The name and product code were updated to reduce the chance of misapplication.
