AMSOIL Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil

Take a good hard look. You’ve never seen an oil like this one . . . not even from AMSOIL.

SLS Note: In 1996 AMSOIL introduced Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel engine oil. While the 5w30 viscosity was becoming the recommended viscosity for gasoline vehicles, using a 5w30 oil in a heavy diesel engine was virtually unheard of. The following describes another “AMSOIL First” and shows why they have been leading the industry since 1972.

• Protection – Like its predecessors, the Series 2000 synthetic motor oils, Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil features a Four-Ball Wear Test chart on its label.

As tested and reported by an independent testing facility, Series 3000 turned in greater protection – up to 82 percent greater – in the test than did a group of popular 15W-40 diesel oils.

Series 3000 resists oil breakdown from heat, blowby chemicals and oxygen up to ten times longer than conventional oils, allowing it to resist forming sludge and varnish deposits, which contribute to increased engine wear.

Series 3000’s superior heat transfer properties and exceptional lubricity reduce engine operating temperatures and engine wear.

Series 3000’s unique technology significantly reduces ring wear, cylinder bore polishing, cylinder lining wear, piston deposits and ring breakage.

Finally, shear-stable Series 3000 retains its specified viscosity throughout its service life, even when service life is significantly extended. That means the protection that’s put in the engine is the protection that stays in the engine.

Series 3000’s 170 Viscosity Index underscores the fact that the oil maintains protective viscosity in
high temperatures.

Finally, it’s interesting to note that with conventional oils, SAE XW-40 oils quickly degrade to SAE XW- 30s.
In fact, fleet demonstrations have shown that after only 5,000 miles 36 percent of XW-40 oils tested sheared back to XW-30 weight oils.

• Fuel Economy – Low viscosity oils such as Series 3000 deliver better fuel economy than high viscosity oils do, witness the passenger car movement from 10W-30 oils to 5W-30 and now for AMSOIL customers, 0W-30 oils.

Series 3000 provides significant fuel savings, with significant oil savings in oil make-up for over-the-road service.

• Low Temp Performance – Low viscosity oils such as Series 3000 also deliver better cold temperature protection than high viscosity oils do.

In fact, Series 3000 remains fluid at temperatures as low as -51℉. It allows easier cold temperature starting and superior cold temperature oil circulation and engine protection.

• Long Drain Performance – Series 3000 is formulated for long drain use in diesel and gasoline engines. Its unique synthetic base stock, long-life detergent/dispersant capabilities (12 TBN) and long-drain additive package ensure maximum engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals. Series 3000’s extremely low volatility (7.8 Noack) demonstrates the oil’s ability to withstand high temperature operation without losing its viscosity characteristics. Without the significant thickening due to volatility losses that conventional oils suffer in high temperature operations, Series 3000 continues to circulate freely and protect the entire engine, even over extended drain intervals.

AMSOIL still makes the Series 3000 Synthetic 5w30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil for diesel engines manufactured prior to 2007 requiring CI-4+ and not having diesel particulate filters ( and gasoline engines requiring API SL, SJ ratings).

For newer engines requiring one of the current diesel oil specs. consider either the AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Max Duty or the AMSOIL Heavy Duty Synthetic Diesel Oils. (AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic 5W-30 Max Duty is excellent for fleets requiring a CK-4 diesel/ SN+ gasoline oil.)
