Whether you like it or not, the big manufacturer’s we know are going to continue to push the small diesel truck market. They get the job done, they’re in a smaller package, and at the end of the day, they sell. With that being said, AMSOIL recognizes its popularity and wanted to capitalize on that front. As of mid-December, there are now two new engine oils added to the AMSOIL lineup designed for these engines.
These two engine oils are 100-percent synthetic diesel oils that are specifically engineered to meet the demands of the diesel engines in newer smaller, half-ton pickups and other passenger vehicles. Available in OW-20 and 5W-30 viscosities, the new AMSOIL 100-percent Synthetic Diesel Oil will provide supreme protection and performance with up to six times better wear protection than required by the leading industry standard.
AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Diesel Oil delivers outstanding protection during heavy use and extreme operating temperatures. It protects turbochargers and emissions systems, helping to extend engine life. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Diesel Oil minimizes oil consumption while providing superior engine cleanliness. It helps smaller diesel engines maintain power and fuel efficiency while reducing maintenance costs and downtime.
AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Diesel 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.
¹Based on third-party testing in the OM646LA cam wear test using 0W-20 as worst-case representation.
