Product Highlights View Full Description

The premium choice diesel oil for model-year 2007 and newer heavy-duty and pickup truck diesel engines requiring API CJ-4 emission-quality oil standards. Delivers extraordinary lubrication in diesel engines in commercial, fleet and personal applications. Exceeds modern specs for emission-quality diesel oil.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
AMSOIL 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil is the premium choice for API CJ-4 emission-quality diesel oil required by model-year 2007 and newer diesel engines, as well as older diesel applications (including those equipped with turbochargers). It delivers extraordinary lubrication in diesel engines found in commercial, fleet and personal vehicles. Formulated with the latest additive and synthetic base oil technology, AMSOIL Premium 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil exceeds the higher performance demands of modern engines. It withstands the stress of heat, soot and acids to help prevent deposits, corrosion and wear.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world’s first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, The First in Synthetics,® to do the best job protecting your engine.

Meets Emission System Requirements
AMSOIL 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil is a low-sulfated ash formulation that meets the requirements for low-emission quality diesel oil and protects under the most severe conditions found in modern diesel engines. It is compatible with all exhaust treatment devices and is designed for engines equipped with diesel particulate filters (DPF).

Extended Drain Performance
AMSOIL Premium 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional petroleum oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system (10.4 TBN) deliver superior engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals. AMSOIL 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil provides maximum protection for up to 3X the OEM-recommended drain interval, even further with oil analysis.

Controls Soot-Thickening and Wear
The advanced synthetic base oils in AMSOIL 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil are naturally resistant to soot contamination and oxidative thickening. That, along with a heavy fortification of detergent/dispersant additives, keeps soot particles suspended independently, helping prevent the formation of larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is controlled.

Superior Shear Stability, Reduced Oil Consumption
AMSOIL 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil has lower volatility (burn-off) than conventional petroleum oils, resulting in less oil vapor passing into the combustion chamber, lowering oil consumption and emissions. Lower volatility helps AMSOIL Premium Synthetic Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection.

Ideal for Fleets
AMSOIL Premium 15W-40 Diesel Oil reduces operating costs through extended drain intervals. It is engineered for a wide range of applications, allowing fleet operators to consolidate engine oil inventories in mixed fleets. In addition, it reduces downtime through extended drain intervals and improved equipment protection.

COMPATIBILITY

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.

I have been using Amsoil in my diesel towing vehicles sense 2004, when I purchased my first diesel GMC 2500 pickup. I tow a 10,000 pound Airstream Travel Trailer 10,000 to 15,000 miles a year, and change my oil one time each year. I have used an Amsoil Duai Filter System with the Bypass filter. I change the Full Flow Filter two times per year, and the Bypass filter one time. I got my oil analyzed each year just before my oil change for six years. I never had the lab recommend I change the oil. I put 125,000 miles om my first Amsoil truck, then sold it to a friend in 2014. The oil I am reviewing was bought for that friend, that is stil towing a Travel Trailer and changing the oil like I did.
I now have a 2015 Chevy 3500 Diesel set up just like my 2004 GMC was for Amsoil and dual filters. The order for this oil also included the oil and filters for my new truck. I look forward to getting the same results with this truck doing the same job.

Comments about Premium 5W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil:

Have been using this product in my 2011 ford diesel since day one. I put on about 14,000 miles a year and change my oil once a year. I have never had to add oil between oil changes. I'm amazed even at change time the oil is still so clear its hard to read the dip stick. Ive been trying to figure out something to put on the dip stick to see the oil easier.

Comments about Premium 5W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil:

I have been using AMSOIL Premium 5W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil for the last five years and I have never had any issues starting when the temperature drops below -30C/-22F.

I switched to AMSOIL after my first winter because I was not happy with the cold weather starting performance of other full-synthetic diesel oils.
