AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil

Race-proven technology designed for passenger car performance. Provides unsurpassed fuel efficiency and up to twice the wear protection provided by popular conventional and synthetic motor oils. Recommended for use in all vehicles requiring 5W-20, 5W-30 or 10W-30 motor oils.

Product Description

Passenger car and light-truck engines today are built for fuel efficiency and power. AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil optimizes efficiency and power without the sacrifice in wear protection that comes with many fuel-efficient, low-viscosity oils.

Testing shows AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil dramatically outperforms popular conventional and synthetic motor oils of much higher viscosity in wear protection. (see chart)


 

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil is Recommended for Applications Requiring the Following Specifications:

  • API SL/CF, SJ, SH
  • ILSAC GF-2, GF-3
  • ACEA A1/B1, A2/B2, A3/B3
  • Chrysler MS-6395M
  • Ford WSS-M2C-913A/B
  • GM 4718M, 6094M
  • VW 502.00 (HTHS is 3.4)
  • DaimlerChrysler 229.5, 229.3
  • JASO VTW

Fuel Efficient Formula

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil efficiently transfers energy from the engine to the drivetrain. Its low coefficient of friction inhibits the energy loss to "drag" common to high viscosity oils.

Motorists seeking the ultimate in fuel efficiency may use AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil in place of higher viscosity motor oils.

High Temperature Protection

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil protects in high temperatures better than do the high-viscosity conventional and synthetic oils tested (see chart). Even after extended service in the engine, Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil maintains its ability to protect in high temperatures.

Low Temperature Protection

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil is specially formulated for superior cold temperature engine protection. Series 2000 retains excellent fluidity in extremely low temperatures, so it flows quickly and reliably to allow easy starting and immediate lubricating protection.

Motorists seeking cold temperature dependability and protection may use AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil in place of higher viscosity motor oils.

Heat Stability

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil is highly resistant to volatility. For example, in heat that causes conventional motor oils to lose as much as 25 percent of their mass, AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil loses less than ten percent.

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil's resistance to volatility keeps oil consumption extremely low and, more importantly, keeps the engine thoroughly lubricated and protected. Its resistance to volatility also helps keep fuel efficiency high and emissions low.

Clean Engine Formula

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil remains free of sludge, varnish and other by-products of high temperature degradation. With no deposits to foul them, engines stay cleaner longer for top performance and efficiency and maximum service life.

Shear Stability

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil is highly shear-resistant. With AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil's excellent viscosity retention, the protection that goes into the engine is the protection that stays in the engine, even over an extended course of severe service.

Mixing AMSOIL

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil may be mixed with petroleum-based oils or other synthetic oils. However, a mixture of AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil and another oil may offer a shorter service life than pure AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil does.

Service Life

In personal cars and light-duty trucks with non-turbocharged gasoline engines: change the oil at 35,000-mile or one-year intervals, whichever comes first.

In turbocharged gasoline engines and occasionally used gasoline engines: change the oil at intervals up to three times longer recommended by the engine manufacturer or six months, whichever comes first.

In high performance and racing engines: specified by Owner Experience/Oil Analysis.

Marine four-cycle gasoline engines and infrequently used automotive four-cycle gasoline engines: drain oil at intervals up to three times longer than those recommended by the engine manufacturer, or one year, whichever comes first.

In fleet and industrial engines: drain oil at intervals up to two times longer than recommended by the manufacturer, or six months, whichever comes first.

AMSOIL Oil Filters should be changed at 12,500-mile or six-month intervals (whichever comes first) in gasoline engines. If a Hastings or other filter is used, filter should be changed at manufacturer's recommendation.
