Unbeatable lubrication and protection in high-performance gasoline engines

Engines in race cars, high-performance street cars, ATVs and motorhomes face high temperatures, vigorous engine speeds or heavy loads, each a potent stressor. AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil offers unmatched protection for engines facing tough operating conditions.

Unbeatable Wear Protection

AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil is specially formulated to carry the oil's wear reducing and heat transferring agents to the engine's surfaces and hold them there. By positioning vital agents where they are most needed, Series 2000 provides a degree of engine protection unavailable with any other oil.

AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil clings tenaciously to engine surfaces, so it shields engines from start-up wear. Further enhancing wear protection, AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil's wax-free lubricating basestocks assure rapid post-start-up lubrication.

AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil contains powerful corrosion preventives, detergents, dispersants and anti-foam agents to protect engines from the harmful effects of water, acids, debris, deposit-forming materials and air entrained oil.

Boosts Power, Speed and Efficiency

AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil reduces friction so effectively that virtually none of the engine's power is wasted on "drag." Its extraordinary formulation gives Series 2000 a coefficient of friction lower than that of other fine, race-formulated synthetic oils. With Series 2000, vehicles accelerate fast, attain top speeds and use fuel efficiently.

Maintains Integrity in Demanding Conditions

AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil maintains a constant high level of performance over time because it resists the damage many oils undergo in high temperature, intense shearing force conditions.

Advanced thermal stability allows AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil to circulate readily, thus protecting hard-to-reach areas that heat-damaged oils grow too thick to reach.

Superior shear stability allows AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil to provide a dependable pad of protection between parts even after exposure to shearing forces that tear lesser oils apart.

MIXING AMSOIL

AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil may be mixed with petroleum-based oils or with other synthetic oils. However, a mixture of AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil and another oil may offer a shorter service life than pure AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil does. The AMSOIL Product Warranty does not apply to mixtures of AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil and other oils.

NEW VEHICLE UNDER WARRANTY

AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil may be used in the engine of any vehicle, including those under warranty, for which the vehicle manufacturer requires use of an SAE 20W-50, API SJ, CF oil.

Use of AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Synthetic Racing Oil will not void new vehicle warranties.

SERVICE LIFE

Non-turbo-charged, non-race gasoline engines: drain oil at intervals up to four times longer than those recommended by the engine manufacturer, or one year, whichever comes first.

Turbo-charged, non-race gasoline engines: drain oil at intervals up to three times longer than those recommended by the engine manufacturer, or one year, whichever comes first.

Race engines: drain oil according to the findings of a used oil analysis program.

Light-duty and non-turbo-charged diesel engines: drain oil at intervals up to two times longer than those recommended by the engine manufacturer if the findings of a conscientiously applied program of used oil analysis indicate the oil remains serviceable.

Marine four-cycle gasoline engines, classic, antique 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.

Stationary gasoline four-cycle engines and fleet vehicle engines: drain oil at intervals up to three times as long as engine manufacturer's recommendations if the findings of a conscientiously applied program of used oil analysis indicate the oil remains serviceable.

AMSOIL Full-Flow Oil Filters should be changed at 12,500-mile or six-month intervals, whichever comes first, in gasoline engines. In diesel engines change AMSOIL Oil Filters at 7,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. Other oil filters must be changed at the interval recommended by the engine manufacturer.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil is specifically formulated to provide tough lubricating protection in the most demanding operations.  It is recommended for use is motorcycles, pickup trucks, recreational vehicles and other high-stress vehicles powerd by gasoline or diesel engines. AMSOIL SAE 20W-50 High Performance Synthetic Motor Oil may be used in all motorcycle engines, including those with a wet clutch system, requiring an API CD, SG-CG or SH-CD oil.

WEAR PROTECTION

The AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil anti-wear additive package contains high levels of zinc and phosphorous for superior protection of cam lobes and other high-pressure parts.  In fact, AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil contains more zinc and phosphorous than most popular motorcycle manufacturer motor oils.  Its superior anti-wear package offers superior wear protection.  AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil leaves a wear scar up to 40 percent smaller than the scars left by other popular brands in the ASTM D4172 Four-Ball Wear Test.

Some motorcycle transmissions and engines share an oil sump, so the engine oil also provides wear protection to the transmission gears.  AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil offers superior wear protection to transmission gears, which are often subjected to high surface pressure and rotation speed.  It also promotes proper wet clutch performance.

FRICTION MODIFIER FREE

AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil contains no friction modifiers.  The friction modifier free formulation of AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil ensures dependable starting, smooth running, good fuel efficiency, desirable stall speeds and clutch compatibility.

DIESEL FORMULATED

AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil contains a robust dispersant/detergent additive package, making it ideal for use in high-stress diesel engines.  Its 12+ TBN ensures lasting protection against acid and soot in high-stress diesel applications.  In fact, its dispersant/detergent additive package is a proven extended drain lubricant.

TEMPERATURE AND PERFORMANCE

AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil offers the superior protection and lubrication at high and low temperatures found only in top-quality synthetic oils.  Its outstanding low temperature fluidity ensures easy cranking, dependable starting and fast post-startup protection.  Its superior high-temperature protection ensures the formation of a clean, protective film of oil between working parts during high-temperature, high-stress operations.

High-temperature operations often lead to the thermal degradation and oxidation of conventional oils, which leads to the formation of deposits, sludge and varnish.  AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil withstands thermal degradation and oxidation at higher temperatures than conventional oils do, ensuring clean, dependable performance in high-stress, high temperature operations.  

NEW VEHICLES UNDER WARRANTY

AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil will not void new vehicle warranties. New vehicle warranties are premised on the use of oils meeting specific API service classifications and SAE viscosity grades. AMSOIL High Performance Synthetic 20W-50 Motor Oil meets the current API and SAE requirements (as labeled) and are perfectly suited for use in any new vehicle stipulating those requirements.
