AMSOIL offers you a patented 100% synthetic oil technology that is light years ahead of the competition and can be used in whatever engine oil your powerplant demands. The function of the oil is to prevent the moving elements of the engine from coming into contact with one another. AMSOIL’s high polarity synthetic oils provide a thick fluid coating that adheres tenaciously to metal surfaces, therefore reducing friction and wear. AMSOIL has over 50 years of experience formulating specialized synthetic oil, which protects your engine from excessive wear and power loss. These oils will efficiently battle and neutralize destructive acids that degrade engine oil and engine components.
