AMSOIL Updates Diesel Fuel Additives with Latest Technology, New Packaging




The AMSOIL diesel fuel additive line boasts several improvements, with AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean (ADF) and AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean + Cold Flow (DFC) featuring new formulations designed to clean both the tough-to-remove deposits surfacing in modern high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) diesel engines and traditional injector deposits. The formulations of AMSOIL Diesel Cetane Boost (ACB) and AMSOIL Diesel Cold Flow (ACF) remain unchanged. All four products feature bold new packaging.

AMSOIL Continues Expansion of Aerosol Product Line



Heavy-Duty Degreaser joins the lineup, while Power Foam® receives a fresh new look.

Power Foam
AMSOIL Power Foam® (APF) is formulated with powerful foaming agents that effectively remove stubborn carbon deposits, varnish and gum in combustion intake systems. Especially effective in powersports, small-engine and carbureted-vehicle applications, it helps restore startability and engine smoothness, while maximizing fuel economy and horsepower for improved overall engine performance.

• Cleans deposits caused by ethanol and degraded fuel
• Removes gum and varnish
• Restores startability
• Maximizes horsepower
• Helps improve fuel economy
• Reduces pollution

Because Power Foam is too aggressive for degreasing certain surfaces, new AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Degreaser (ADG) is recommended for degreasing.

Applications
• UTVs/ATVs • Boats • Motorcycles • Lawn Equipment • Tractors • Automobiles

Power Foam’s formulation and pricing remain unchanged.

Heavy-Duty Degreaser
New AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Degreaser (ADG) is formulated with powerful and fast-acting solvents, attacking petroleum-based grime on a molecular level to loosen its hold on metal, concrete, engines and other surfaces. Its active d’limonene (citrus) formula makes cleaning easy and leaves a clean scent.

• Dissolves oil, tar and grime
• Removes sticky residue
• Works fast
• Low-VOC formula
• Non-foaming

Applications
• Metal Surfaces • Oil-Stained Concrete • Automotive and Truck Engines • Adhesive-Coated Surfaces • Heavy-Duty Equipment • Gears and Chains • Powersports Equipment • Farm Equipment and More

Chrysler Motor Oil Consumption Guidelines



Chrysler has adjusted its acceptable motor oil consumption guidelines for 2012-2013 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep gasoline vehicles (Chrysler Bulletin #09-001-12 Engine Oil Consumption Guideline):

• First 50,000 miles of engine life: one quart per 2,000 miles
• Engines with over 50,000 miles: one quart per 750 miles
• Aggressive driving conditions: one quart per 500 miles

AMSOIL recommends all customers check their motor oil levels on a regular basis until an oil consumption pattern is discovered, and top-off as necessary.

Ride Hard. Run Cool.™



The summer riding season is here and things are heating up. If you or your customers own Harley-Davidson or other V-twin motorcycles, keep them protected all summer from the extremes of low-speed riding, revving and idling with AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil (MCV). Motor oil plays a critical role in cooling these big air-cooled engines, and even more so during low-speed operation with limited wind generated for cooling. If the oil can’t take the heat, its ability to protect is compromised. AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil has been tested in extreme conditions, where cylinders reached temperatures higher than 500°F, and it withstood the heat while fully resisting viscosity change. Your bike should never get this hot, but if it does, AMSOIL has you covered. Learn more about the AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil extreme dynamometer heat test here and in the Ride Hard. Run Cool.™ fair handout (G3116).
