Extends Drain Intervals

AMSOIL Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty 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 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty 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 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty 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 loses only 7.6% of its mass to high-temperature volatility (evaporation) in the NOACK test, outperforming all conventional oils. Because less oil vapor passes into the combustion chamber, oil consumption and emissions are reduced. Additionally, lower volatility helps AMSOIL 5W-30 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection and excellent fuel economy.

Excels in Extreme Temperatures

AMSOIL Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown, oxidation and sludge formation better than conventional oils. And unlike conventional petroleum oils, AMSOIL HDD contains no wax. It stays fluid down to -50°C (-58°F) for improved cold-temperature oil flow, reduced bearing wear and easier starting.
