AMSOIL Diesel Fuel Additives Best Choice for Increased Fuel Lubricity


Adequate diesel fuel lubricity is essential for protecting the highly engineered components in modern diesel engines, particularly high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) engines, which are subject to increased wear and deposits that interfere with an optimum spray pattern, reducing power and fuel economy. Many diesel owners add two-stroke oil to their fuel for added lubricity. AMSOIL diesel fuel additives deliver a better solution and provide additional benefits.

See the August AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Motorcycle Oil, Primary Fluid & Transmission Fluid: What’s the Difference?


Some V-twin motorcycles, like modern Indian* and Victory* bikes, use a shared sump, meaning they use the same lubricant in the engine, transmission and primary chaincase. Most Harley-Davidson* motorcycles, however, use a separate sump for each lubricant. This presents Harley owners with a choice: Use the same lubricant in all three areas of the bike, or use a separate lubricant formulated and labeled for each area.

For riders who desire the simplicity and convenience of using one lubricant for all three areas, following our primary recommendation of 20W-50 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil in all three areas is the best choice.

For riders who prefer dedicated lubricants for each area of their bikes and don’t mind a few extra bottles of oil lying around the garage, steer them toward our full line of V-twin lubricants.

Either way, they can’t go wrong.

New Website Coming Soon


This fall, we’re rolling out a newly updated amsoil.com that builds an even better online experience for your customers and accounts.

What’s Changing
The website’s overall appearance will feel familiar, but site navigation and search capability will undergo major changes. The following features are also being added to help streamline the ordering process for customers and accounts:

• Express checkout
• Save items in cart for later
• Save credit cards to the account for future purchases

New Canada Site
We’re also introducing a new Canadian AMSOIL website. Amsoil.ca will look similar to the U.S. version of amsoil.com, but will feature Canada-specific products, promotional offers and pricing.
