Product Description
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated to provide superior protection and performance in a wide variety of demanding applications. Its unique combination of synthetic base stocks and a superior additive package results in a formulation that exceeds the requirements of most gasoline or diesel applications that call for 10W-40 motor oil. Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil is ideal for high-mileage vehicles and high-stress vehicles subject to hot temperatures, heavy hauling, trailer pulling or off-road use. It provides the extra anti-wear protection required by engines with flat-tappet cams and high-tension valve springs. AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil offers flexibility and performance beyond conventional oils for convenience and trouble-free operation.

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

Superior Wear Protection
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil is high-viscosity oil engineered to protect against metal-to-metal contact. It resists viscosity shear and is formulated with a heavy treatment of zinc and other anti-wear additives for excellent protection of gears, bearings, cam lobes and other high-pressure components in engines and transmissions. AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil helps extend equipment life.

Wet Clutch Compatible
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil contains no friction modifiers, making it ideal for motorcycles, maintenance equipment and other wet-clutch transmission applications. Formulated to prevent clutch glazing and slippage, it helps ensure smooth clutch engagement and long-term, dependable transmission operation. Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil reduces clutch wear for extended transmission life.

Resists Oxidation and High-Temperature Breakdown
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil is specifically formulated to overcome the thermal deficiencies common to conventional petroleum oils. Volatilization (burn-off), oxidation and excessive deposit formation from high heat are greatly reduced. Viscosity thickening is controlled and engines run cleaner, promoting cooler operation and long engine life in air or liquid-cooled engines.

Extends Drain Intervals in Gasoline and Diesel Engines
Superior AMSOIL synthetic base stock and additive technology exceeds the requirements of both gasoline and diesel engines. AMSOIL Premium Protection Motor Oil is designed to neutralize acids, disperse soot and last longer in service than conventional oils.

MIXING AMSOIL
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Premium Protection Motor 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 Synthetic Oils.

SERVICE LIFE
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Premium Protection Motor Oil is recommended for extended intervals in unmodified, mechanically-sound vehicles or equipment as follows:

Diesel 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.

Gasoline Engine Service
• Normal and Severe Service - Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.

Motorcycles, Small Engines, Stationary Engines, Heavy Equipment and Other Applications
•Extend drain intervals based on oil analysis or follow the manufacturer-recommended drain interval.

AMSOIL Ea™ Full-Flow Oil Filters are designed for extended drain intervals. They stop smaller particles, flow more oil and last longer than regular filters. For best performance, use AMSOIL Ea™ Full-Flow Oil Filters and replace at the time of oil change. Other oil filters should be changed at standard OEM* intervals.

Fantastic oil.

This oil has a very strong cleaning aspect. When I drained the oil the first time I used it in a motorcycle with 17000 miles on it, it came out looking like thick almost gloppy molasses. Very black and quite thick. Subsequent oil changes have resulted in the oil coming out much cleaner. So much so that I can see light through the stream of oil as it is draining from the engine. I recently removed a side cover to inspect the clutch plates. The inside of the engine is clean like it was new. I'm very happy with this product.

Never running Mobile again

Not the cheapest, just the best. After tearing down my motor after 250hr for rebuild/refresh, my rod, cam, and crank bearings still looked new. Keep in mind this isn't a pampered motor. It gets run hard, yet the rebuild seemed completely unnecessary.

I am a firm believer in Amsoil. This oil helped me out with my 75 chevy 350. It took away an engine tick. It also runs and idles a lot smoother. Excellent product.

I love the high zinc oil!

I've been using this oil in my drift cars for years now, and have gotten to tear a couple motors down for rebuilds ( due to low compression) and got the opportunity to see that the oil has Done it's job! It kept the engin clean inside, and protected the bearing like it was supose to!

2013 Toyota RAV4

My application is a 2013 Toyota RAV4 with 15k miles. I use 10w-40 Amsoil and change just once a year since I normally drive about 3800 miles a year anyway using Amsoil Full Synthetic..

I feel more confident using this and changing it myself the first several years as opposed to letting Toyota change it for FREE with regular oil every 6 months. Basically I can do it myself once a year and still save time from waiting around at a stealership lobby and have confidence I will not sludge up ever with better protection. Not to mention I know I do it right and tighten everything back up.

I personally had some bad experiances in the past and do not trust them working on my car since I bought it new. One time the spark plugs were apparently never tightened as an example on another new car we purchased during a service.

Superior protection

I use the Amsoil high zinc formula in a high reving 4cyl application . The oil pressure and temp are never an issue while on the track and I like the extra protection that the zinc provides for the camshaft and shim buckets.

Great product hands down

I use this product in my work van with an oil bypass filter along with my stock oil filter, my van has over 340,000 miles and has had the oil bypass filter since it was new and I truly believe that Amsoil has kept me on the road this long.

A hidden gem from an outstanding dealer

I've tried all the good stuff - from "German Castrol" to Redline to Royal Purple to Rotella etc.
From 0w to 50w in all kinds of weather.
From the '62 max wedge Savoy to the '88 w150 roller 318 - this oil works best for my Mopars whether it's the Canadian winter or the West Texas summer.
Good pressure at hot idle, excellent flow and fast cranking in -40 (good battery helps).
My tweaked '81 high compression W150 is my daily driver and gets 13/18 mpg with non ethanol Shell 91 and Amsoil AMO.
I don't bother with UOA of Amsoil anymore, this oil is always on top.
I change the oil and filter once a year and it doesn't need topping up between changes unless I'm towing 3000 miles to TX in the summer - about a pint.
Anne & Alex Farkas give me personalized service - thanks folks!
