Racing Testimonial: AMSOIL snowmobile oil saves engine
During the Pro Open final at the opening rounds of AMSOIL Championship Snocross, professional rider Lincoln Lemieux's Ski-Doo lost all its engine coolant after a hose clamp broke. Despite intense heat that melted the exhaust power valve covers, O-rings and gaskets, AMSOIL DOMINATOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil protected Lemieux's engine so well, the team is able to reuse the engine after replacing the melted parts.
Two-stroke snowmobiles are meant to be ridden hard. Repeatedly
pushing a machine to wide-open throttle during all-day, aggressive
riding, however, takes its toll on the engine. INTERCEPTOR
Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is specifically designed for maximum performance
in all makes of two-stroke snowmobiles, including Ski-Doo*, Polaris* and
Arctic Cat*, helping enthusiasts spend more time riding and less performing
maintenance. It is compatible with nearly all other two-stroke
oils, while its low-smoke, low-odor properties help ensure riders won't be
"smoked out." INTERCEPTOR is engineered to be pushed as hard as
the sleds it protects.
Snowmobile engines have evolved to run on leaner gas-to-oil mixtures, increasing
harmful friction and heat. INTERCEPTOR's synthetic formulation incorporates high-molecular-weight components with high flash points that resist burn-off. As a result,
a greater amount of oil survives the combustion process to provide lubrication and
protection. Its excellent lubricity and film strength inhibit metal-to-metal contact.
In extreme dynamometer testing, INTERCEPTOR's anti-scuff/anti-wear formula
completely prevented piston skirt scuffing.
Excellent Deposit Control
INTERCEPTOR naturally resists harmful deposits due to its thermally stable synthetic
formulation. It is additionally fortified with high-temperature detergency and dispersancy
additives that provide excellent engine cleanliness. In extreme dynamometer
testing, INTERCEPTOR completely prevented piston ring and exhaust power valve
sticking for maximum performance. It also limited piston, combustion chamber and
spark plug deposits for reliable operation.
Proven in Extreme Dynamometer Test on Rotax® E-TEC® Engine
INTERCEPTOR was installed in a 2012 BRP* Ski-Doo
Renegade X snowmobile equipped with a Rotax E-TEC
800R engine. Following 50 hours of severe-duty engine
dynamometer testing designed to simulate a full season
of real-world conditions, the engine was disassembled
and rated for deposits, wear and other distress by an
ASTM calibrated rater. Each component earned a merit
rating on a scale of 0 to 10 (with 10 representing no
distress) or a percentage rating (with 0 percent representing
no distress). Results prove INTERCEPTOR excelled
at inhibiting deposits and wear. See the complete dyno
results at amsoil.com/proof.

AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is engineered for
use in direct-fuel-injected (DFI), electronic-fuel-injected (EFI) and
carbureted two-stroke snowmobiles, including those made by
Polaris*, BRP*/Ski-Doo* (Rotax* E-TEC* engines), Arctic
Cat* (C-TEC 2) and Yamaha*.
Use where API TC oils are specified. Use as injection oil or
50:1 premix (2.6 oz. per U.S. gallon of gas). INTERCEPTOR is
compatible with most conventional and synthetic two-stroke oils;
however, for best performance, mixing oils should be minimized.
