Product Description

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 the industry's premier synthetic technology with AMSOIL premium additives, AMSOIL 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. AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil consistently outperforms conventional and synthetic diesel 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 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.

Maximizes Fuel Economy

AMSOIL 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.

Maximum Protection Against Engine Wear

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

Controls Soot Thickening and Wear

AMSOIL 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

AMSOIL 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 AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection and excellent fuel economy.

Excels in Extreme Temperatures

AMSOIL 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 -50°C (-58°F) for improved cold-temperature oil flow, reduced bearing wear and easier starting.

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.

Compatibility

AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel 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.

HEALTH & SAFETY

This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Great oil for boat

This 15w-40 Marine oil is all I use in both my 2001 300hp Mercruiser boat engines since 2011. Why you might ask? 1) Only oil that has shown to lubricate the turbo blades on my son's boat diesel super-charger.
2) When son's oil hose ruptured at full engine speed, repair mechanic stated that engine only survived due to the oil's lubrication properties.

I would purchase this product again

We have been using this product in our 2004.5 Dodge diesel since 2010. The truck had 110K miles on it when we switched over and added the micro-filtration unit. We now have some 329K miles with about 120K miles of that amount while hauling commercial freight. Now back to my daily driver and still using this oil.

Great Oil

Oil is like a lot of things where the positive traits are hard to quantify. You just have to know it's good and working. I run it in a Ford 6.0 so it has to be good.

PEOPLE TOLD ME TO GET RID OF IT BUT I TELL THEM IT'S NOT THE TIME YET IT STILL RUNS LIKE A CHAMP AND EVERYTHING IS WORKING ON IT. I USE AMSOIL PRODUCTS ON MY OTHER CARS AS WELL AND A FEW OF MY FRIENDS GOT HOOKED ONCE THEY TRY IT AND THEY NEVER WENT BACK TO THE OIL THEY USED TO USE. THANK YOU AMSOIL FOR YOUR GREAT PRODUCT, KEEP UP THIS AWESOME WORK AND I WISH THAT AMSOIL TO BE AROUND FOR THE NEXT 100 YEARS.
