SAE 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Oil

This is our best selling Diesel Oil for our Omaha location. It’s right in the middle of AMSOIL’s broad diesel choices as for the actual base stock quality level but for earlier (pre 2007) high mileage diesels it’s is the best choice. This is the latest of the original Synthetic Diesel oil from 1976. It’s quite popular with OTR diesels which are not DPF equipped. This is also coincidentally the choice of glider truck builds as this is the perfect oil for the older rebuilds. Plenty is kept in stock in Omaha.

Extends Engine Life Significantly while Improving Diesel Performance

SAE 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Oil

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil is a premium diesel oil that provides excellent performance in all types of diesel engines where highly effective control of wear and deposits is vital. Engineered with heavy-duty dispersant/detergent additives, its Total Base Number (TBN) of 12 neutralizes acids and controls soot thickening from exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and blow-by to protect against corrosion, cylinder bore polishing (wear), varnish and sludge deposits. AMSOIL 15W-40 Diesel Oil resists heat and breakdown better than conventional petroleum oils for long-lasting performance and protection.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world’s first API qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL The First in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your engine.

Extends Drain Intervals

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional petroleum oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive chemistry deliver maximum engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals, reducing vehicle maintenance and waste-oil disposal costs.

Controls Soot and Wear

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil is heavily fortified with detergent/dispersant additives and is naturally resistant to soot. It is designed to keep soot particles suspended independently and prevent them from aggregating to form larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is reduced.

Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil has lower volatility than conventional petroleum oils. Oil consumption and emissions are minimized due to less vapor passing into the combustion chamber. Lower volatility helps AMSOIL 15W-40 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection.

Excellent Cold-Flow Properties

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil eases cold-weather starting (down to -44°F) and provides vital startup lubrication to help prevent engine wear. AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil outperforms conventional 15W-40 petroleum oils and minimizes the impact of cold-weather operation.

APPLICATIONS

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Motor Oil is engineered for use in a wide variety of light- and heavy-duty applications, including over-the-road trucks, off-road construction, marine engines, farm equipment, mining, industrial (pumps & generators) and personal automotive or commercial transportation. It is excellent for use with low- or high-sulfur diesel fuels in standard, turbocharged or supercharged engines, including diesels equipped with EGR systems.

COMPATIBILITY

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel & Marine Oil is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oil, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits.

AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.

SERVICE LIFE

AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Motor Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in unmodified, mechanically-sound vehicles or equipment as follows:

Diesel Engine Service

Three times (3X) OEM* recommendation, not to exceed 50,000 miles/600 hours or one year, whichever comes first. Drain intervals may be extended further with oil analysis.

Gasoline Engine Service

SAE 15-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Oil and a 2004 Dodge
By Robo 8/24/2016

from Sinton, Texas

I have owned my Dodge Cummins Diesel Truck since new.
After the initial break-in, it has had nothing but Amsoil 15w-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil; and changed once a year; along with an Amsoil oil filter.
345,000 miles later should speak for itself.

Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
