Racing Testimonial: AMSOIL snowmobile oil saves engine
During the Pro Open final at the opening rounds of AMSOIL Championship Snocross, professional rider Lincoln Lemieux's Ski-Doo lost all its engine coolant after a hose clamp broke. Despite intense heat that melted the exhaust power valve covers, O-rings and gaskets, AMSOIL DOMINATOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil protected Lemieux's engine so well, the team is able to reuse the engine after replacing the melted parts.
Two-stroke snowmobiles are meant to be ridden hard. Repeatedly
pushing a machine to wide-open throttle during all-day, aggressive
riding, however, takes its toll on the engine. INTERCEPTOR
Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is specifically designed for maximum performance
in all makes of two-stroke snowmobiles, including Ski-Doo*, Polaris* and
Arctic Cat*, helping enthusiasts spend more time riding and less performing
maintenance. It is compatible with nearly all other two-stroke
oils, while its low-smoke, low-odor properties help ensure riders won't be
"smoked out." INTERCEPTOR is engineered to be pushed as hard as
the sleds it protects.
Snowmobile engines have evolved to run on leaner gas-to-oil mixtures, increasing
harmful friction and heat. INTERCEPTOR's synthetic formulation incorporates high-molecular-weight components with high flash points that resist burn-off. As a result,
a greater amount of oil survives the combustion process to provide lubrication and
protection. Its excellent lubricity and film strength inhibit metal-to-metal contact.
In extreme dynamometer testing, INTERCEPTOR's anti-scuff/anti-wear formula
completely prevented piston skirt scuffing.
Excellent Deposit Control
INTERCEPTOR naturally resists harmful deposits due to its thermally stable synthetic
formulation. It is additionally fortified with high-temperature detergency and dispersancy
additives that provide excellent engine cleanliness. In extreme dynamometer
testing, INTERCEPTOR completely prevented piston ring and exhaust power valve
sticking for maximum performance. It also limited piston, combustion chamber and
spark plug deposits for reliable operation.
INTERCEPTOR Field Trial Results
During the winter of 2015/16, INTERCEPTOR was tested in the three top makes of
snowmobiles. Each sled was added to the rental fleet of a different outfitter in the Eagle
River, Wis., area and placed into service. Following the season, the sleds were disassembled
and examined for wear. Results reveal INTERCEPTOR prevented piston ring
sticking and piston scuffing, (see below) while the exhaust power valves contained
no abnormal deposit buildup and did not stick.

Use in all two-stroke snowmobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, PWCs
and where API-TC and JASO FD oils are specified: Polaris* •
BRP*/Ski-Doo* (Rotax* E-TEC* engines) • Arctic Cat* • Honda*
• Yamaha* • Kawasaki* • Suzuki* • Direct-fuel-injected (DFI),
electronic-fuel-injected (EFI) & carbureted engines
Use as injection oil or 50:1 premix (2.6 oz. per U.S. gallon of
gas). INTERCEPTOR is compatible with most conventional and
synthetic two-stroke oils; however, for best performance, mixing
oils should be minimized.
