*** Discontinued September 2019 ***
Designed to Outperform Conventional Diesel Oils. Exceeds both 10W-30 multi-grade and SAE 30 straight-grade viscosity requirements. Provides outstanding performance in pre-2007 diesel engines in on-road applications as well as all model-year diesel engines in off-road apps. Also recommended for gasoline engines requiring API SL or previous specifications.
Package sizes include:
1-Gallon Bottles (case of 4)

AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (ACD) is formulated with premium synthetic base oils that exceed both 10W-30 multi-grade and SAE 30 straight-grade viscosity requirements for outstanding performance in modern and older diesel engines. Unlike conventional SAE 30 motor oils, AMSOIL ACD has a naturally high viscosity index and does not contain paraffin (wax). It has a -33°F pour point and qualifies for SAE 10W, making it an all-season multigrade lubricant with a wide operating temperature range. AMSOIL ACD is formulated without viscosity index (VI) improvers. This shear-stable formulation is designed to stop viscosity loss and associated bearing and cylinder bore wear. AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil contains premium additives with a high 12 TBN to neutralize acids from blow-by, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and high-sulfur diesel fuels. It protects against damaging piston deposits, ring sticking and sludge.
AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world's first API qualified synthetic motor oil back in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL The First in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your equipment.
Where these viscosity grades are specified, AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Diesel Oil (ACD) provides outstanding performance as a straight-grade SAE 30 for older two- and four-stroke diesels and as a multi-grade SAE 10W-30 in modern four-stroke diesels as well as gasoline engines. AMSOIL ACD is ideal for use in a wide variety of light and heavy-duty applications, including agriculture, off-road construction, trucking, mining, industrial (pumps and generators) and personal automotive or commercial transportation. It is recommended for use with low or high sulfur diesel fuels in standard, turbocharged or supercharged engines, all off-road engines and pre-2007 on-road engines.
• SAE 10W-30 performance without VI improvers
• Cost-effective replacement for conventional oils
• Excellent shear stability
• Outstanding wear protection
• Superior protection over a broad range of operating temperatures
• Extended service life with oil analysis
AMSOIL ACD is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils, however, mixing AMSOIL ACD with other oils will shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where AMSOIL ACD has been mixed with another product.
Aftermarket additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL ACD.
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (ACD) is recommended for extended drain intervals in engines that are unmodified and in good operating condition.
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.
• Severe Service - Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on 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.
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).
