Resists Oil Breakdown
XL Synthetic Motor Oil maintains its fluidity (viscosity) under the most extreme conditions. Some oils break down and significantly increase in viscosity after extended periods of high-temperature operation. These changes can cause excessive oil consumption, engine deposits, accelerated wear and difficult cold-starts. The GM Oxidation and Deposit (GMOD) Test consists of a 5.7L V8 engine running at 293ºF (100º hotter than normal) for 100 hours. These severe operating conditions test an oils ability to control viscosity increase, deposits and oil consumption. The testing revealed that AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil provides 64 percent more protection against oil breakdown1 than required by the GM dexos1® Gen 2 specification, ensuring protection in extreme temperatures.

GM Oxidation and Deposit (GMOD) Test

Protects Pistons from Low-Speed Pre-Ignition
XL Synthetic Motor Oil features unique chemistry proven to protect your engine against the harmful effects of low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI). LSPI is the spontaneous ignition of the fuel/air mixture prior to spark-triggered ignition. Most new engines feature gasoline direct-inject (GDI), often coupled with a turbocharger. These technologies heighten the possibility of LSPI events, which can destroy pistons and connecting rods. A properly formulated motor oil is critical for protecting your engine against LSPI.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like GM have addressed the issue by designing tests to determine a motor oil's ability to prevent LSPI. XL Synthetic Motor Oil achieved 100 percent protection against LSPI2 - zero occurrences were recorded throughout five consecutive tests.

Keeps Engines Clean
AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is fortified with detergent and dispersant additives. Its boosted additive package effectively raises the total base number (TBN) to neutralize acids and resist sludge, corrosion and carbon deposits. XL provides 25 percent more cleaning power3 to help keep your engine running smoother, longer.

Reduces Maintenance
Motorists, business owners and fleet managers benefit from the boosted engine protection of AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil. Frequent oil changes are expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient. The extra protection built into XL can provide extended drain intervals up to 12,000 miles or one year4, if you choose, allowing you to change oil on your schedule, reduce maintenance, save money and reduce waste oil.

Maximizes Fuel Economy & Maintains Low Emissions
XL Synthetic Motor Oil is licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet and exceed the requirements commonly found in owner's manuals. It excels in fuel-economy testing, earning the additional "Resource Conserving" designation5 from the API. XL is also friendly toward modern emissions control systems, promoting proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions.

1Based on independent testing of AMSOIL XL 5W-30 motor oil in the GMOD engine test required for the GM dexos1 Gen2 specification.

2Based on zero LSPI events in five consecutive tests of AMSOIL XL 5W-30 Motor Oil in the LSPI engine test required by the GM dexos1 Gen 2 specification.

    Best oil I have used in my 392
    By  EDDIE,  a  Verified Buyer  from  NC   on  July 05, 2022
    After almost five years of Pennzoil and an engine slowly getting to be noisy first I ran the signature 0w40 and noticed a great improvement but decided to give the XL 10w40 a try for the summer camping season and so far this oil is working beautifully no MDS codes and finally an engine that’s as quite as the day I bought it. I do plan on running this from now on in my Ram thanks for a great product

    Only Run Amsoil
    By  ART,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Cedar Falls Iowa  on  June 27, 2022
    For the last 15 years or so I only use Amsoil in all of my vehicles; car, truck, motorcycle, lawn mower & snow thrower. I drive under 7,000 miles a year in my truck and with that few miles the oil only gets changed one time so the XL makes more sense than the signature oil; however I have used both and at oil changes oil still looks pretty clean.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Only Run Amsoil
    By  ART,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Cedar Falls Iowa  on  June 27, 2022
    For the last 15 years or so I only use Amsoil in all of my vehicles; car, truck, motorcycle, lawn mower & snow thrower. The XL oil works good in my car because I travel about 21,000 miles a year driving back and forth to work. It doesn't make sense to use the signature motor oil due to the miles, however when oil is changed it's still pretty clean.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
