Product Highlights View Full Description

Protect your investment in diesel power and confidently extend drain intervals with our top-grade synthetic diesel oil. AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil delivers 6X better wear protection than required by the Detroit Diesel DD13 Scuffing Test for Specification DFS 93K222. Advanced synthetic technology provides excellent viscosity control and outstanding extreme-temperature performance, while minimizing oil consumption. The result: protection that’s boosted to the max.

Maximum Engine Protection
Wear on rings and cylinder liners leads to increased oil consumption and loss of compression, resulting in reduced horsepower and fuel economy. Independent testing shows AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty delivers 6X more wear protection than required by the Detroit Diesel DD13 Scuffing Test for Specification DFS 93K222, delivering the security of providing your diesel the extra protection it deserves.

Viscosity Control
Using top-tier synthetic base oils, AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty is naturally resistant to oxidation and the thickening effects of soot contamination. That, along with boosted 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. Lower volatility also helps Signature Series Max-Duty retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for maximum engine protection and efficiency.

Excels in Extreme Temperatures
AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown better than conventional and competing synthetic diesel oils. Unlike conventional oils, Signature Series contains no wax, staying fluid in sub-zero temperatures for easier starting, improved oil flow and reduced wear. Signature Series 0W-40 (DZF) has a broad viscosity range that offers 4X better cold-cranking ability than a 15W-40, making it excellent for use in both hot-operating engines and cold-weather starting extremes.

Minimizes Oil Consumption
AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty has a low rate of volatility (burn-off), reducing oil consumption during operation and passing less oil vapor into the combustion chamber. It provides up to 76 percent less oil consumption than required by the API CK-4 standard in the Caterpillar-1N oil consumption test.

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil is compatible with other conventional and synthetic engine oils. Mixing AMSOIL diesel oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

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

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.

Not worth the cost in my opinion

Can't say I had any issue in my 2014 Duramax but for the cost I will be buying something else. I just cant stand lettingmy truck go 10k++ miles on a single oil...Read complete review

I have used this oil for many years in my 3500 GMC. A recent trip of 11000 km with the 25000 mile oil filter did not change the color of the oil it was still as if it came out of the container. Excellent starting in cold weather

Nothing else for my diesel truck

By 

from Las Vegas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Premium 5W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil:

I have been using Amzoil in my 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 since the first oil change. I currently have 147,000 miles on it and it doesn't burn a drop of oil, runs smooth and has a ton of power. I believe that using a quality oil with regular oil changes is the key. This stuff is not cheap! Neither is this truck! But to replace it is $68,000. I think the Amzoil is going to give me that quarter million mile mark.
