• 50% more cleaning power vs. AMSOIL OE Motor Oil
• Ideal for turbos & direct injection
• Guaranteed protection for up to 25,000 miles or 1 year

Protects Against Engine Wear
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil develops a strong fluid film that keeps metal surfaces separated while its robust anti-wear additives further reduce wear in metal-to-metal contact regions for maximum engine life. The Sequence IVA Engine Test, which must be passed to meet the industry-standard API SN specification, simulates extended periods of stop-and-go driving. For 100 hours, the test engine cycles between 50 minutes of idling and 10 minutes of elevated rpm – conditions that encourage engine wear. The camshaft is then measured for wear in 84 locations and an average score is determined. We used Signature Series 0W-20, the lightest viscosity in the line, to further increase the severity of the test. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provided 75 percent more engine protection against horsepower loss and wear1 than required by the industry standard, extending the life of vital components like pistons and cams.

After rigorous third-party testing, the cam lobes show little-to-no wear.

Protects Pistons from Low-Speed Pre-Ignition
We armed Signature Series with an advanced detergent system that protects against harmful deposits and low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI). Most new engines feature gasoline direct injection (GDI), often combined with a turbocharger to boost power and improve fuel economy. These new technologies, when combined with a poorly formulated motor oil, promote LSPI and threaten engine operation. LSPI is the spontaneous ignition of the fuel/air mixture prior to spark-triggered ignition. It occurs in today's advanced engines and is much more destructive than typical pre-ignition.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like GM* have addressed the issue by designing tests to determine a motor oil's ability to prevent LSPI. The GM test allows up to five LSPI events to receive a passing score. Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provided 100 percent protection against LSPI1 – zero occurrences were recorded.

Protects Turbochargers
Our unique synthetic formulation is inherently stable to resist oxidation and neutralize acids. Signature Series Motor Oil provides outstanding protection against deposits common to high-temperature engine environments. The tremendous heat and stress turbos create can cause some oils to break down and form harmful bearing deposits through a process known as turbo coking. Over time, turbos can suffer reduced performance or fail altogether.

We challenged Signature Series to the GM Turbo Coking Test, which consists of 2000 cycles of extreme heat soaks. An oil must limit the temperature change within the turbocharger to 13 percent or less to pass the test. Signature Series limited the temperature increase to only 3.6 percent, protecting theturbocharger 72 percent better than required2 by the GM dexos1® Gen 2 specification.

Piston damage and shaft wear

Up To 25,000 Miles Protection

Extends Drains: Protection Guaranteed
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provides reserve protection, allowing you to go longer between oil changes if you choose – up to 25,000 miles, 700 hours of operation or one year, whichever comes first*. Our unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system are inherently stable to resist oxidation and neutralize acids over longer periods. Signature Series is designed to deliver outstanding engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals – guaranteed. It provides peace of mind so you can fit oil changes into your schedule.

Preserves Horsepower
The extreme durability of Signature Series Motor Oil ensures your engine runs stronger, for longer. We installed Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil in a Ford* F-150 with a new 3.5L Ecoboost engine to test its ability to protect turbocharged direct-injection (TDGI) engines from torque and horsepower loss during extended drain intervals up to 25,000 miles. Power sweeps were done at the beginning and end of the test to evaluate horsepower and torque retention. As the graph shows, Signature Series helped maintain engine performance throughout the 100,000 mile test.

Preserves Horsepower

Limits Oil Consumption
Signature Series has a uniform molecular structure that limits evaporation and keeps it where it's needed most – protecting your engine. Volatility (burn-off) occurs when oil gets hot, causing lighter molecules to burn off or evaporate. This leads to oil thickening, additive imbalance, higher emissions and oil consumption. The NOACK Volatility test is the industry standard for evaluating motor oil high temperature evaporation. It measures the percentage of burn-off after a motor oil is placed under constant airflow at 482ºF for 1 hour. A lower number indicates a better resistance to evaporation. Signature Series falls far below the API limit for volatility, reducing the need for frequent oil top-offs and limiting vehicle emissions.

Limits Oil Consumption

Easier Cold-Starts
Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil does not contain paraffins (wax) and stays fluid in temperatures of -58ºF and lower. Extreme cold causes other motor oils to thicken, starving vital moving parts of lubrication, accelerating wear and even preventing vehicles from starting. Signature Series provides 66 percent better cold-temperature performance for easier starting, better fuel economy, improved oil flow (as seen below) and reduced wear.

Easier Cold-Starts

Cold Pour Test

Maintains Protective Viscosity
We formulated Signature Series with superior thermal durability that resists breakdown better than conventional and synthetic motor oils. The Sequence IIIH Test uses the Chrysler 3.6L Pentastar engine to evaluate a motor oil's ability to resist the damaging effects of heat. The test is conducted with oil temperatures of 304ºF, 100ºF hotter than normal operation, to accelerate oil thickening and deposits. Despite the extreme conditions, Signature Series kept pistons clean and held thickening to only 6 percent, a minimal amount compared to the proposed specification limit of 150 percent.1 This stay-in-grade performance helps maintain maximum power and fuel economy while also ensuring advanced technologies like variable valve timing (VVT) operate as designed throughout the entire drain interval.

I changed to amsoil from gm dexos as I wanted something better for my Cruze. After 10k of running dexos as it was included with the car, I switched to amsoil and immediately noticed the engine running quieter than with dexos. I am happy with the change so far and am looking forward to see how it holds up as I only have 1500 miles on it so far. We'll see what happens when I get into my second oil change.

The oil is good, but with the membership fee and high shipping costs I am going back to Mobile 1 as I did not see much if any of a difference. There is just to many hoops they make you jump through. There should just be a cost to buy it and no membership fee that AMS Oil makes people think they are locked in to buying oil from them so they can "get the most of the membership". I think most people find annoying and just go buy another oil rather than pay high prices on top of shipping and also a fee just to buy it at a reasonable price.

Comments about Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil:

I bought my new 2008 Hyundia March 2008. In June 2008 I changed oil for first time miles 7240. I stared using Amsoil 0W20 and I'still using the sme oil, Amsoil 0W 20. Now the car 320337 miles and NO engine problems. I drive between 12,000 and 15,000 miles and change the filter and add a quart of Amsoil and I'm good for another 15,000 miles. I do routine basic maiintenance,but the engine has never been apart execpt for the timing belt.

Comments about Signature Series 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil:

I've used Amsoil in my personal & family vehicles for over 10-years now. For these applications I use the Signature series 5W, and 10W-30. Since switching to Amsoil I've had zero mechanical motor issues and both engines are now approaching 200,000 miles and still running strong! I'm a DIY home mechanic so my cost per car is about $65 a year (including everything: tax, shipping, oil and filters).
Amsoil is... Superior protection with just one oil change per year, per car! You can't beat that!

Having used amsoil for many years I am sold on the product.however a recent occurrence
deserves mention. A 2004 Toyota Tundra belonging to my girlfriend has for the last 12 years
Had a mild knock at every cold startup that subsides as the engine warms up. I persuaded
Her to let me put Amsoil in on the last service. The knock was there at initial startup but I noted
Did not take near as long to quite. It has not made the sound since. 3000 + miles.
