Premium Protection 10W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil 10W-40 is formulated to provide superior protection and performance in a wide variety of demanding applications. Its unique combination of synthetic base stocks and a superior additive package results in a formulation that exceeds the requirements of most gasoline or diesel applications that call for 10W-40 motor oil. Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil is ideal for high-mileage vehicles and high-stress vehicles subject to hot temperatures, heavy hauling, trailer pulling or off-road use. It provides the extra anti-wear protection required by engines with flat-tappet cams and high-tension valve springs. AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil offers flexibility and performance beyond conventional oils for convenience and trouble-free operation.
Local note: This is one of Omaha’s best selling AMSOIL products. Although since the 80’s very few vehicles call for a 10W-40, Omaha has a solid classic car segment which call on this oil as it’s an instant performer and has protection not available elsewhere. It’s actually AMSOIL’s first product which was available back in 1972! If anyone is having to add a zinc additive to their oil tell them to stop and use products already designed for that use. Tell them to try our Z-ROD line (10W-30 or 20W-50) or this 10W-40 AMO. Another one of our high zinc oils – if you want a 5W-30 and you have a dirty engine you want to clean up, try the HDD 5W-30.

Superior Wear Protection
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil is high-viscosity oil engineered to protect against metal-to-metal contact. It resists viscosity shear and is formulated with a heavy treatment of zinc and other anti-wear additives for excellent protection of gears, bearings, cam lobes and other high-pressure components in engines and transmissions. AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil helps extend equipment life.
Wet Clutch Compatible
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil contains no friction modifiers, making it ideal for motorcycles, maintenance equipment and other wet-clutch transmission applications. Formulated to prevent clutch glazing and slippage, it helps ensure smooth clutch engagement and long-term, dependable transmission operation. Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil reduces clutch wear for extended transmission life. If you have a motorcycle for normal every day commuting, this is an more economical choice for your bike.
Resists Oxidation and High-Temperature Breakdown
AMSOIL Premium Protection Synthetic Motor Oil is specifically formulated to overcome the thermal deficiencies common to conventional petroleum oils. Volatilization (burn-off), oxidation and excessive deposit formation from high heat are greatly reduced. Viscosity thickening is controlled and engines run cleaner, promoting cooler operation and long engine life in air or liquid-cooled engines.

Superior AMSOIL synthetic base stock and additive technology exceeds the requirements of both gasoline and diesel engines. AMSOIL Premium Protection Motor Oil is designed to neutralize acids, disperse soot and last longer in service than conventional oils.

AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Premium Protection Motor Oil is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil 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 Synthetic Oils.
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Premium Protection Motor Oil is recommended for extended intervals in unmodified, mechanically-sound vehicles or equipment as follows:
Diesel Engine Service
•Normal Service – Up to 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
•Severe Service – Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
Gasoline Engine Service
•Normal and Severe Service – Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
Motorcycles, Small Engines, Stationary Engines, Heavy Equipment and Other Applications
•Extend drain intervals based on oil analysis or follow the manufacturer-recommended drain interval.
AMSOIL Ea? Full-Flow Oil Filters are designed for extended drain intervals. They stop smaller particles, flow more oil and last longer than regular filters. For best performance, use AMSOIL Ea? Full-Flow Oil Filters and replace at the time of oil change. Other oil filters should be changed at standard OEM* intervals.
