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.

    Describe the issue

    I've been using the XLF 5W30 in my wife's Buick Envision with the 2.0 Turbo engine. The vehicle has maintained its 32 MPG HWY mileage and the engine oil comes out clean at service intervals. I highly recommend this oil for any small turbo engines (1.5L to 2.3L). Great product.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Ive always recommended it, and as long as it keeps showing me that it goes above and beyond ill keep overpaying for it!

    Excellent product for high miliage motors
    By  SCOTT,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Michigan  on  September 14, 2021

    Describe the issue

    I'm the second owner of a 2009 GMC with a 6 liter motor. It has 290,000 miles on and runs spot on. Previous owner was running this oil prior to me purchasing and I took his suggestion on not changing. Knock on wood, plan at least another 100K out of it. I change oil every 5,000 miles or so. Great stuff.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
