XL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil Extended-Drain Boost Technology Formulated for up to 10,000-miles/six month intervals, or longer when recommended in owners’ manuals or indicated by oil monitoring systems.
AMSOIL XL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil is designed to provide better wear control, improved high- and low-temperature protection and increased fuel economy compared to conventional oils. AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with extended-drain boost technology. It provides superior performance for up to 10,000-miles/six months, or longer when recommended in owners’ manuals or indicated by electronic oil life monitoring systems.
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.
During normal engine operation, the combustion process creates acidic by-products that can lead to internal component corrosion and a reduction in the life expectancy of the engine oil and engine itself. AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with extended-drain boost technology. It employs high-quality synthetic base stocks and a unique additive chemistry to neutralize acids longer than conventional oils. The extra additive package effectively raises the total base number (TBN), a measure of an oil’s useful service life, and provides superior protection and performance throughout the entire drain interval.
Cost-conscious motorists, business owners and fleet managers benefit from the extended drain intervals and wear protection of AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil. Frequent oil changes are expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient, while longer drain intervals reduce costs and environmental impact. Increased wear control can further reduce maintenance costs. With AMSOIL XL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil, motorists realize the convenience and cost savings of extended drain intervals with maximum engine protection.
XL Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated with friction modifiers to reduce friction-related energy loss. It provides better fuel economy compared to conventional, non-fuel-efficient motor oils.
AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is friendly toward modern emissions control systems, promoting proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions.
AMSOIL XL is a multi-viscosity formulation. It resists the effects of thermal breakdown, including evaporation and viscosity loss, better than conventional oils while remaining fluid in cold temperatures for easier cold starts and fast startup circulation.
AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is fortified with detergent and dispersant additives. It is engineered to resist sludge and carbon deposits better than conventional oils. It promotes clean operation for longer-lasting, better-running engines.
AMSOIL XL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil fulfills the requirements of most public and private purchasing bids. It is cost-effective, making it ideal where synthetic motor oil is specified.
AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is excellent for use in all types of gasoline-fueled vehicles. It is recommended for all domestic and foreign vehicles requiring any of the following specifications:
AMSOIL XL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oill is compatible with conventional and other synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil with other oils, 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 XL Synthetic Motor Oil.
In gasoline-fueled vehicles, AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is recommended for up to 10,000-mile/six-month oil change intervals or longer when recommended in owner’s manuals or indicated by electronic oil life monitoring systems. Change aftermarket, original equipment manufacturer or AMSOIL Ea® Oil Filter at every oil change.

When visitors tour AMSOIL headquarters in Superior, Wis., they frequently comment on the cleanliness of the facilities. Whether you walk around the offices, distribution center or the blending and packaging areas, everything is tidy and organized. That’s no accident, but the result of determined effort and an unwavering commitment to quality control.
Quality control is an exacting, step-by- step process that ensures every AMSOIL product is consistently blended, consistently formulated, consistently packaged and consistently tested before a Dealer or customer makes a purchase. Many companies tout quality control, but few do it like AMSOIL. Everything AMSOIL does – from receiving raw materials and warehousing to packaging and shipping – is governed by clearly defined quality-control procedures. The first line of the AMSOIL Quality Policy states, “It is the policy of AMSOIL INC. to provide products with ‘exceptional performance’ that exceed customer expectations.” Doing so requires exceptional employee performance and exceptional work practices.
AMSOIL operates an advanced blending operation with access to a wide range of raw materials handled by the 2.5 million gallons of storage tank capacity on site. You probably know that AMSOIL uses the best base stocks and additives available to formulate the best lubricants possible. But that’s just one of many quality control steps taken here. Did you know that every drum, tanker truck and railroad car of raw materials AMSOIL receives is tagged and held in quarantine until it can be tested in our laboratory? Only after the material is tested to verify it meets specifications can it be transferred into the tanks and production chain.
Lubricant blending is a meticulous activity achieved by employees following explicit work instructions and aided by ultramodern equipment. Our state-of-the-art simultaneous metered blending system (SMB) affords maximum control and efficiency over the blending process and ensures that each product receives precisely formulated amounts of base oils and additives required for optimum performance. The blending process also ensures that all fluids are carefully tested numerous times in the laboratory before being labeled as AMSOIL products. After the final lab approval fluids enter the packaging stage, but the show must go on. Between runs, the lines are cleaned thoroughly with a squeegee-like device called a “pig” that makes two complete passes through the pipes to remove any residue leftover from the prior batch. This guarantees that the next fluid traveling the line has a clean environment and that cross-contamination does not occur.
Every truckload of bottles that AMSOIL receives also must pass inspection, with random bottles being examined and weighed for consistency before entering production. And before lubricants are dispensed into their packages they are filtered according to industry specifications using appropriate synthetic media for the respective product. Bottles are filled to define weights and capped to a consistent torque. As bottles proceed through production, an inline scale identifies and removes any containers failing to meet specified weight requirements. They also pass a camera that inspects every bottle for crooked or loose caps. If an improperly capped bottle is discovered, the optical system sends a flashing signal notifying a line worker of the problem, who can then recap it and ensure a proper seal. Every bottle is also coded with several pieces of information, including date and time of production, which line it ran on and who was responsible for the line at that time. Such data not only provides transparency, it allows for back-referencing should a problem arise later. Even our labels go through a quality process, with all labels containing a Certificate of Analysis (COA) that guarantees their accuracy before they stamp a container.
We began this article talking about clean facilities. AMSOIL Production Manager Bill Archibald notes, “We keep the blending and production areas clean by instilling the importance of cleanliness in every employee.” Clean facilities are the result of continuous and ongoing effort. If a spill occurs, it is cleaned immediately – not later, not at the end of the day, but now.
These are just a few examples of our multi-faceted approach to quality control. Going the extra mile benefits customers and Dealers alike; both can purchase, use and recommend AMSOIL products without hesitation, knowing that quality raw materials and quality procedures yield quality products.
The XL line of oils are no exception. The 5W-30 if made by a competitor using the level of additives and base stock selection, would be marked up at least 20% more. Always look to AMSOIL for the best value no matter which product tier you select from. The XL Synthetic line gains attention of drivers because of the quality of additives. Yes – an oil which truly makes a difference!
