AMSOIL is Prepared for the Next Generation of Diesel Oils

 Next Generation of Diesel Oils

New API diesel specifications are on the way, and we’re ready with new AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil and AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil launching in February.

The two upcoming new API diesel oil specifications focus on these five goals:

  • Reduced emissions
  • Improved fuel economy
  • Stronger oxidation stability
  • Better shear stability
  • Increased resistance to aeration

 

The new API CK-4 specification is designed for current model-year and older diesel engines and is backward-compatible with API CJ-4 (and prior) oils.

The new API FA-4 specification is designed to further improve fuel economy and reduce emissions. FA-4 oils are not backward-compatible and may only be used in certain 2017 and newer over-the-road trucks, when approved by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

A Sneak Peek

The launch of the new API specifications in December will prompt a significant change in the AMSOIL synthetic diesel oil lineup as all-new API CK-4 diesel oils are added to the mix. Premium Synthetic Diesel Oil (DEO, DME) will be discontinued and replaced by new AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil, and OE Synthetic Diesel Oil (OEC, OED) will be discontinued and replaced by new AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil in February.

AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil

Like Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil for gasoline engines, Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil will represent the top tier of AMSOIL protection and performance for diesel engines. Signature Series will be available in 5W-40 and 15W-40 viscosities, as well as new 0W-40 and 5W-30 viscosities.

  • Max-Duty engine protection and performance

  • Full OEM specification coverage

  • Extended drain intervals, including reintroduction of 25,000-mile/one-year drain intervals for turbodiesel trucks.

 

A Premium All-Fleet Oil

Signature Series 5W-30 Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil will be a premium all-fleet oil engineered for modern diesel and gasoline engines.

  • Meets the latest diesel and gasoline oil specifications, including API CK-4 and API SN
  • Emissions-system compliant
  • Low viscosity delivers protection equal to higher viscosity engine oils

 

AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil

AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil will provide outstanding protection and performance for customers seeking an upgrade over conventional and synthetic-blend diesel oils, while being price-competitive with other synthetic brands in the marketplace. AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil will be available in 15W-40 and 10W-30 viscosities, as well as a new 5W-40 viscosity.
