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.

Preserve Two-Stroke Equipment Power

To help you reach as many prospects as possible, we compared AMSOIL SABER® Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil to ECHO* Power Blend* XTended Life* Universal 2-Stroke Oil in ECHO string trimmers. SABER Professional offered excellent protection against piston ring sticking, scuffing and deposits. SABER Professional proved superior at fighting harmful carbon buildup, greatly reducing exhaust port blocking and spark arrestor screen plugging. ECHO Power Blend XTended Life Oil, in contrast, led to significant carbon buildup, which caused the engine to lose power as the study progressed. In fact, SABER Professional protected against rpm loss – which is closely related to power – 21 percent better than the ECHO product by the end of the test.
