Product Highlights View Full Description

Engineered for pre-2007 diesel engines in on-road applications as well as all model year diesel engines in off-road applications. Also engineered for all gasoline engines recommending API SL specifications including turbo-charged vehicles. Provides superior wear protection and fuel efficiency.

AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil delivers extraordinary lubrication in both diesel and gasoline engines found in commercial, fleet and personal vehicles. By combining synthetic base oils with AMSOIL premium additives, Series 3000 exceeds the higher performance demands of modern engines, including those with turbochargers. It withstands the stress of higher heat, higher acid levels and excessive soot-loading found in exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)-equipped engines. Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil consistently outperforms conventional and synthetic diesel oils for long-lasting performance and protection.

Maximum Protection Against Engine Wear
Even under high temperatures and pressures, Series 3000 Diesel Oil's superior film strength and anti-wear additives help prevent metal-to-metal contact. Series 3000 reduces ring wear, cylinder bore polishing, oil consumption and valvetrain wear for improved engine life and lower maintenance costs.

Maximizes Fuel Economy
Series 3000 Diesel Oil is energy efficient for reduced fuel costs. Its low viscosity minimizes "drag" associated with high-viscosity oils, allowing the engine to operate more freely, maximizing power and fuel economy.

Extends Drain Intervals
Series 3000 Diesel Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system deliver maximum engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals, reducing vehicle maintenance and waste oil disposal costs.

Controls Soot-Thickening and Wear
Series 3000 Diesel Oil is heavily fortified with detergent/dispersant additives and is naturally resistant to soot. It is designed to keep soot particles suspended independently and prevent them from attaching together to form larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is controlled.

Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions
Series 3000 Diesel Oil effectively reduces high-temperature volatility (evaporation), outperforming conventional oils. Because less oil vapor passes into the combustion chamber, oil consumption and emissions are reduced. Additionally, lower volatility helps Series 3000 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection and excellent fuel economy.

Excels in Extreme Temperatures
Series 3000 Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown, oxidation and sludge formation better than conventional oils. And unlike conventional petroleum oils, AMSOIL Series 3000 contains no wax. It stays fluid down to -47°C (-53°F) for improved cold-temperature oil flow, reduced bearing wear and easier starting.

APPLICATIONS
Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for diesel engines, including those that are turbocharged, gasoline engines and other applications that require any of the following specifications:

  • API CI-4+, CI-4, CH-4, CF-2, CF, SL, SJ
  • ACEA A3/B3, E2, E3, E5, E7
  • Global DHD-1
  • JASO DH-1
  • Mack EO-M, EO-N
  • DDC 93K214
  • Caterpillar ECF-1-a, ECF-2
  • Cummins CES 20076, 20077, 20078
  • Volvo VDS-2, VDS-3 • MB 228.1, 228.3, 229.1
  • MAN 271/3275
  • MTU Type II

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is compatible with other conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor 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 motor oils.

SERVICE LIFE
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in unmodified, mechanically-sound vehicles or equipment as follows:

Diesel Engine Service

  • Three times (3X) OEM* recommendation, not to exceed 50,000 miles/600 hours or one year, whichever comes first. Drain intervals may be extended further with oil analysis.

Gasoline Engine Service

  • Normal Service – Up to 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
  • Severe Service – Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.

*Operating conditions and drain intervals for severe and normal service are defined by the OEM. Refer to your owner’s manual.

Note: Extended drain intervals are not recommended when using biofuels containing >10% ethanol or 10% biodiesel (B10). Follow OEM drain intervals or extend drain intervals with oil analysis.

I have been running this oil for seven years. I ran it in a fleet of 125 Generators, 25 Loaders, and 40 Kenworth semis. I never once in 3 years had an engine failure. These pieces of equipment ran around the clock in the oil fields. Our generators would run 26,000 Hours before we would bring them in for a rebuild. We would take them out of service for a rebuild, the engines never failed. I would reccomend this product to anyone and I would put it against any other oil on the market. I run it in all my personal vehicles and engines. I will be an amsoil customer for life.

Comments about SAE 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Oil:

I've been running the 15w-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil for years in all my work trucks. I've owned 3 7.3 psd Fords, and a 2008 with the 6.4. Though this oil is not recommended for the 08, it has been deleted and does just fine in it. (if your truck is not deleted, use the recommended oil) I use Amsoil oil filters and do extended oil changes. 15,000 miles on all the trucks. Though I don't do oil samples on every oil change, whenever I have, they always come back good. In fact, I could probably go to 20,000 miles if I want to.

Amazing product

Comments about SAE 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Oil:

We have been using this oil in our diesels for over 8 years and it has never let me down. We had a fleet of 150 gensets and 50 semis. Not once did we have an engine failure due to lubrication qualities with this oil. Our engines in the gensets lasted 26,000 hrs before we would pull them out of service to rebuild. I have used this oil in my personal diesel pickups and have never been disappointed. I will run this oil for life.

Comments about SAE 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Oil:

We have a diesel Pusher motorhome and since using this product I figure my engine (Cummins) runs smoother and cooler, along with the extended mileage, it is a no brainer for performance and cost savings overmore frequent oil changes. I installing a By Pass filter to clean the oil even more than the stock filter does, My coach has a Allison Transmission so that gets the 'TORQUE DRIVE " Synthetic oil and the rear end has the 80/140 oil too. Nothing but the best for us for sure.

Using this product in my trawler

By 

from Seattle, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about 10W-30/SAE 30 Synthetic Heavy-Duty Diesel Oil:

Used this product in a Westerbeke 4 cylinder diesel engine in a sailboat for a number of years. 100 hour standard oil change interval. With this product I changed the filter every 100 hours and the oil at 300 hours. Oil test/analysis indicated the oil was still good at 300 hours. Now I use it in an American Diesel (Ford Lehman) 6 cylinder industrial engine in my trawler. 200 hour standard oil change interval. I changed the standard oil filter every 200 hours and the oil at less than 600 hours (1 year). Oil test analysis at 493 hours indicated the oil TBN was 8.8 and oil was still good. This allows me to operate my boat all summer in remote locations from Tacoma, WA to Juneau, AK without having to change oil.

Comments about Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil:

Was having some stiction issues with my 7.3. Was recommended this product by an oil specialist. Never heard of Amsoil before I used it. Seemed like my engine loved it as I could tell that it started right up and seems to have restored any loss of power. Stiction seems to have gone away even in cold start ups. Will exclusively use this product.
