It withstands the stress of heat, soot and acids to help prevent deposits, corrosion and wear.
AMSOIL, the leader in automotive and diesel 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.
AMSOIL was created by the determined efforts of an award winning 25 year U.S. jet fighter pilot... Lieutenant Colonel Al Amatuzio.
He recognized the extreme conditions that synthetic lubricating oils in his fighter jet engines had to endure and sought to bring the same benefits to the automotive engine.
From 120F desert heat on the Tarmac to negative -47F at 30,000ft altitude (and colder) synthetic oils had already proven themselves superior and essential for the protection of multimillion dollar and powerful jet engines traveling at supersonic speeds.
Lieutenant Colonel Amatuzio trusted his life to these lubricants...
The question the Lieutenant Colonel wanted to tackle was how to get the same protection into his car that he trusted to carry him in his jet beyond the speed of sound while at subzero temperature extremes...
So in 1963 he started to assemble a team of chemists, the foremost experts in the lubricant industry, to adapt the synthetic oil technology from fighter jet engines to automotive and truck engines.
His intense research and development started in 1963 and the first commercially available synthetic oil came to market in 1966... then by 1972 AMSOIL was the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet the American Petroleum Institute's service requirements and then set all new standards for motor oil quality.
That was almost 40 years ago... and AMSOIL has had the 25,000 mile one year oil change for that long...
AMSOIL was the documented first synthetic motor oil that out performed conventional motor oils on all counts. In fact, AMSOIL has since defended their title and won in court the right to call themselves the "first in synthetics".
The same culture of industry experts working together to continue to pioneer and innovate engine oil technology... pushing the envelope every year to continue to create new and improved synthetic oils.
And yes, Lieutenant Colonel Al Amatuzio is still there today demanding excellence from his teams!
Every other major manufacturer has since recognized the superior capabilities of synthetic oils and has brought their own oils to market... but none compare to AMSOIL.
AMSOIL continues to lead the industry with the unique experience and technical know-how to develop new and improved synthetic oils year over year... as all the test results and field tests reveal.
And as engines continue to get lighter and more powerful with new and different alloys AMSOIL continues to improve their oils to stay ahead of the curve...
15W40 is part of AMSOIL's premium line of oils which deliver extraordinary lubrication in your gasoline engines for longer engine life and better gas mileage.
AMSOIL resists thermal breakdown because it has a pure synthetic basestock and it is heavily fortified with detergent and dispersant additives.
This keeps your engine clean inside and helps your engine parts stay cool.
AMSOIL 15W40 synthetic diesel oil is excellent for use in diesel engines and is compatible with other conventional oils and synthetic oils so you don't have to worry about your engine when you change over to AMSOIL.
It is not recommended to mix AMSOIL with other oils during an oil change because it can reduce the life of the new AMSOIL diesel oil.
AMSOIL performs best all on its own. You do not have to add any additional additives because AMSOIL 15W40 has all of the good ones already in it... in fact you could reduce performance by using other additives.
Its good to know you have everything you need in one bottle.
AMSOIL Premium CJ-4 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in engines that are unmodified and in good operating condition.
