Leading the Field in Deposit Protection

Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time out. In theses Covid times I mean either social distancing out on the water fishing for Walleye on the Columbia, or maybe I will make a run up the Snake. Chances are I could go for a rip through the sand dunes in my Polaris XPT and distance myself there. Sometimes for an escape from the house it could be just a drive in the Honda CRV to no place special.
The point I am making is it’s not just one Motor I have to Maintain. My work horse the heart of my fleet Chevrolet Silverado with is Duramax diesel is always towing. If not towing the Skeeter Walleye boat to the river. I am towing the Polaris XPT on the car hauler to the desert.  Then there is the Voltage toy hauler fully loaded to the Oregon Coast and it has an Onan generator. All of these vehicles and trailers need maintenance. Whether it be oil changes, oil filters, air filters, gear oil, or just grease for the bearings. My one stop shop for all of these items is here.
At TNT Powersports Oil we carry the best product line AMSOIL. We have a full line of AMSOIL EA filters or Wix air or oil filters on our site. Check out our fuel additives section. These items will be drop shipped to your doorstep from the nearest AMSOIL distribution center.

Leading the Field in Deposit Protection

Testing proves AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil provides more complete protection against damaging deposits than its competitors.

The push toward smaller, fuel-efficient yet powerful engines has driven the development of several key technologies. Gasoline direct injection (GDI) and turbochargers are now common features of passenger cars and light trucks. By 2020, industry experts predict that nearly every new vehicle will feature GDI technology, and the vast majority will be turbocharged. While these advanced technologies enhance performance, they also present serious challenges to motor oil.

The Turbocharger Trade-Off

Turbochargers push more air into the engine’s combustion chamber, providing better fuel-economy and performance but also creating intense engine temperatures. They often operate above 150,000 rpm on exhaust gases exceeding 1000°F. These extreme conditions cause some motor oils to break down and solidify into harmful deposits.

Vehicle manufacturers have long recommended different service intervals based on “normal” or “severe” driving conditions. Turbocharged vehicles are automatically included in the severe service category due to the extreme heat they generate. Motor oil with unique properties is required to combat the effects of intense temperatures.

Proof of Protection

AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil was tested against two competing brands to determine its level of protection against deposit formation in high-heat applications.

Test ResultsThe TEOST 33C test (ASTM D6335) is an industry-standard bench test that simulates turbocharger operating conditions. According to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), it is “designed to predict the high temperature deposit forming tendencies of an engine oil.” To meet the API SN Resource Conserving and ILSAC GF-5 motor oil specifications that are often recommended by vehicle manufacturers, a 5W-30 motor oil must limit total deposit formation to 30 mg or less.

AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil held the total weight of deposits to 7 mg, well under the 30 mg limit required by the API and ILSAC, while Royal Purple® API 5W-30 and Mobil1® Extended Performance 5W-30 came in just under the limit at 25.4 mg and 28.2 mg respectively. Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil protects against harmful deposits on turbochargers 4X better than Mobil1® Extended Performance and 3.6X better than Royal Purple® in industry-standard testing*.

*Based on independent, third-party testing of AMSOIL® Signature Series 5W-30, Mobil1® Extended Performance 5W-30 and Royal Purple® API 5W-30 in the ASTM D6335 bench test required by the API SN Resource Conserving specification.

Test results represent the formulations available as of April 2016. Formulations were coded to eliminate bias during testing and samples were tested in random order. An appropriate number of trials of each oil were run to produce results at or above the 95 percent confidence level when compared to AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.
