AMSOIL has introduced two new 100% synthetic diesel oils engineered to meet the demands of diesel engines in smaller, half-ton pickups and other passenger vehicles. Available in 0W-20 and 5W-30 viscosities, the new 100% synthetic diesel oil provides protection and performance with up to 6X better wear protection than required by a leading industry standard.*
The oil delivers outstanding protection during heavy use and extreme operating temperatures. It protects turbochargers and emissions systems, helping to extend engine life. It also minimizes oil consumption while providing superior engine cleanliness, and helps smaller diesel engines maintain power and fuel efficiency while reducing maintenance costs and downtime.
The oil is recommended for the drain intervals specified by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Drain intervals may be extended beyond the OEM-recommended interval with oil analysis. It is specifically engineered for use in smaller American diesel pickups, vans, cars, and SUVs that require any of the following specifications:
- 0W-20: GM dexosD
- 5W-30: GM dexosD; dexos2; Chrysler MS-11106; Ford WSS-M2C214-B1; ACEA C3
Neither oil is suitable for use in applications that require an API CK-4 (or prior) specification.
*Based on third-party testing in the OM646LA cam wear test using 0W-20 as worst-case representation.
