AMSOIL saves money for diesel owners in three significant ways
- Motor Oil Source Reduction through Extended Drain Capabilities
- Increased MPG through Reduction in Friction
- Increased Equipment Service Life, Fewer Repairs and Resale Value
1. Extended Drain Intervals* - Source Reduction
AMSOIL developed the world's first extended drain technology diesel motor oils in 1975. Ever since motorists and fleet owners have put the extended drain capabilities of AMSOIL to good use.
AMSOIL synthetic diesel oils neutralize acids, resist heat and controls soot longer than conventional oils. AMSOIL's premium synthetic chemistries allow motorists to safely extend drain intervals up to three times longer than OEM recommendations, saving money and time.
Extended-drain savings can be further increased when by-pass filtration and oil analysis are used.
AMSOIL has proved its effectiveness for over 40 years and billions of miles logged by our loyal customers. Now its your turn to join the savings found in the use of premium & superior technology.
*AMSOIL has documented high fuel dilution in 2007-present light-duty diesel pickups (Dodge, Ford, and GM/GMC LMM) equipped with diesel particulate filters. In these specific applications, AMSOIL recommends following the manufacturer-recommended drain interval. Oil drain intervals can be extended further with oil analysis.
2. Maximum Miles Per Gallon
When internal friction is reduced in the engine, transmission, transfer case and differentials, its a proven fact that MPG increases as a result.
AMSOIL synthetic diesel oil's low coefficient of friction reduces friction-related energy loss, which increases fuel economy.
In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Federal Test Procedure (FTP) confirms a 1.6 percent increase in fuel economy at a mix of 55/45 city/highway driving when using AMSOIL Premium 5W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil in place of conventional 15W-40 diesel oils.
However, many AMSOIL users who switch over engine oil, transmission, transfer-case and differential fluids report even greater MPG improvements as high as 10%. This results in direct savings in fuel cost. Even at 1.6% fuel savings, an average vehicle can save $65.45 annually.
When combining fuel savings and extended-drain savings, AMSOIL provides diesel owners a significant overall annual cost reduction.

3. Increased Equipment Service Life
When friction is reduced throughout the drive-train, component level wear is also significantly reduced. Reduced wear results in longer equipment life and fewer repairs. A well maintained equipment also runs smoother and reliably demanding higher resale value for a equipment of similar age.
AMSOIL fleet owners have testified phenomenal savings achieved through lower maintenance costs, down time, extending fleet service life and also better resale value. Many have concluded that it pays to use AMSOIL in their equipments and some refers to as cheap insurance towards expensive repairs.
AMSOIL synthetic lubricant's molecular technology coats and clings to metal surfaces. This reduces cold start wear and helps engines turn over easily, extending starter motor and battery life.
AMSOIL introduced the world's first synthetic diesel motor oil in 1975. AMSOIL synthetic diesel oil was formulated to outperform conventional diesel oils on all counts. It was clear from the start that this innovative product would play a major role in engine performance and engine life.
Today, AMSOIL synthetic diesel oils are synonymous with power and performance. They're tough, reliable and they withstand the devastating effects of severe-service towing and heavy hauling that destroy lesser oils. By reducing friction and guarding against wear, AMSOIL synthetic diesel oils increase fuel economy and help keep vehicles on the job, saving you money.
Hard-working turbocharged diesels can literally tear engine oil apart. Elevated heat and shearing forces can thin the oil until it fails to provide adequate protection, leaving components susceptible to wear and failure. The sophisticated emissions-control devices on 2007-and-newer diesels make things worse. Fuel dilution from DPF regeneration or excessive idling further thins the oil, while excess soot from EGR and blow-by leads to harmful sludge formation and abrasive wear. AMSOIL synthetic diesel oils are designed to withstand the punishment doled out by diesel engines. They provide excellent protection during heavy use and even abuse.
Extreme heat generated when towing and hauling destroys inferior transmission fluids and shortens transmission life. Heat is especially harmful in today’s smaller transmissions that hold less fluid but are required to direct increased power and torque. Inferior transmission fluids coupled with severe-service driving can lead to fluid leaks, poor shift quality and expensive transmission repairs. AMSOIL synthetic transmission fluids resist extreme heat to keep gears, bearings and seals protected in the toughest driving conditions.
Fuel system performance is critical to getting the most out of your diesel, and modern high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) designs just add to the challenge. Fuel economy and performance are highly dependent on getting the right amount of fuel into the combustion chamber in the correct physical form at the correct time. With variable diesel fuel quality at the pump and today’s sophisticated fuel-delivery systems, it doesn’t take long for performance issues to surface. Plus, today’s ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) doesn’t have the lubricating properties diesel fuel once had, inviting fuel pump and injector wear. Highly concentrated AMSOIL diesel fuel additives are designed to maximize fuel-system performance and life, helping prevent expensive repairs and injector replacements in all types of diesel engines, including HPCR.
Too often differentials are out of sight, out of mind. Towing and heavy hauling, however, focus intense pressure on the ring-and-pinion gears, inviting wear. Intense heat causes gear lube to thin, reducing viscosity and further increasing heat in a cycle known as thermal runaway. Left unchecked, thermal runaway can shorten component life and lead to catastrophic failure. AMSOIL Severe Gear® Synthetic Gear Lube delivers high film strength to protect against wear and outstanding heat resistance to guard against thermal runaway.
AMSOIL offers the highest performing synthetic grease for chassis and driveline lubrication. Your pickup truck just drives smoother when the chassis greasing points are properly greased with the highest quality synthetic grease. AMSOIL grease last 3 times longer than conventional grease. Resists wash off and pound out. It stays in place longer than any other grease.
