Product Description

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil is a premium diesel oil that provides excellent performance in all types of diesel engines where highly effective control of wear and deposits is vital. Engineered with heavy-duty dispersant/detergent additives, its Total Base Number (TBN) of 12 neutralizes acids and controls soot thickening from exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and blow-by to protect against corrosion, cylinder bore polishing (wear), varnish and sludge deposits. AMSOIL 15W-40 Diesel Oil resists heat and breakdown better than conventional petroleum oils for long-lasting performance and protection.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world's first API qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL The First in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your engine.

Extends Drain Intervals

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional petroleum oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive chemistry deliver maximum engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals, reducing vehicle maintenance and waste-oil disposal costs.

Advanced Soot and Wear Control Formula

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor 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 aggregating to form larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is reduced.

Maximizes Fuel Economy, Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil has lower volatility than conventional petroleum oils. Oil consumption and emissions are minimized due to less vapor passing into the combustion chamber. Lower volatility helps AMSOIL 15W-40 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection.

Excellent Cold Flow Properties

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil eases cold-weather starting (down to -44°F) and provides vital startup lubrication to help prevent engine wear. AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil outperforms conventional 15W-40 petroleum oils and minimizes the impact of cold-weather operation.

COMPATIBILITY

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil 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 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Motor 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:
Two times (2X) OEM* recommendation, not to exceed 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.

*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 5% biodiesel (B5). Follow OEM drain intervals or extend drain intervals with oil analysis.

A full synthetic 15w40 CI4+

15w40 AME & a 15micron Donaldson P551018 for my annual oil/filter changes.

From Southern summers to Northern winters, UOA shows that this combo can't be beaten for my over fueled, compounded decathlete 12v Cummins.

Don't ever stop making this outstanding CI4+ oil.

Love using the diesel marine in my truck!

I've run Amsoil in my 05 Cummins 5.9 for around 200k. And I've used all the different diesel oils Amsoil has to offer from highest of performance to the eco price. But In my leaky 300k plus and climbing work diesel. the marine oil always comes out with just about as much as I put in 10k ago. And the others I would sometimes be up to 3Qt short when drained. Like it's gets so thin that it finds completely new ways to seep out !! But that why I like to order the heavier oil. Lastly my whole truck runs on Amsoil rears,difs,transfer and engine, and I strongly believe that Amsoil is the soul reason why my Cummins runs as good as it does at 310k miles!! Thanks for the spectrum or synthetic lubes to chose
from!! Two thumbs high from this guy!!

It does not break down like other oils, doesn't get up, or foam up. Longer time between changes.
