New Diesel Specs: We’re Ready

The launch of the new API diesel oil specifications in December will prompt a significant change in the AMSOIL synthetic diesel oil lineup. Premium Synthetic Diesel Oil and OE Synthetic Diesel Oil will be discontinued, replaced with new API CK-4 synthetic diesel oils in February.

AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil
Like Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil for gasoline engines, Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil will represent the top tier of AMSOIL protection and performance for diesel engines. Signature Series will be available in 5W-40 and 15W-40 viscosities, as well as new 0W-40 and 5W-30 viscosities.

AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil
AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil will provide outstanding protection and performance for customers seeking an upgrade over conventional and synthetic-blend diesel oils, while being price-competitive with other synthetic brands in the marketplace. AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil will be available in 15W-40 and 10W-30 viscosities, as well as a new 5W-40 viscosity.

See the November AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

New Heavy-Duty Metal Protector Formulation Launches January 2017

AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Metal Protector will be reformulated to provide improved performance as a corrosion inhibitor.

Look for more information in upcoming issues of AMSOIL Magazine.
