Series 3000 SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel (and Gasoline) Oil - Maximum Fuel Economy and Excellent Anti-Wear Protection. Engineered for pre-2007 diesel engines. One of the most versicle AMSOIL products.
Editors note: “This is one of my favorite and most used AMSOIL products. Reading below you will notice it’s also excellent in gasoline engines. Unlike any other AMSOIL 5W-30, this product features the high zinc for better anti-wear protection in older vehicles. It also is my first choice in older cars as the detergent quality needed for older diesels also benefits older gasoline engines which the owner may not know the history. The 100% synthetic base stocks will halt future wear as the product assists in keeping deposits in suspension.
As for diesel engines many of our customers understand their diesel engine was designed for 5W-30 as on option. This allows the motor to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. It’s a favorite in Ford 7.3’s, 6.0’s and Chevy Duramax (pre 2007). Also many 2003 and earlier Dodge 5.9 owners have expressed amazement regarding the increased fuel economy. Overhauled pre-DPF over the road diesels should also consider this one as we were selling this with success to the new trucks of that time before the change to CJ-4.”
Maximum Fuel Economy and Excellent Anti-Wear Protection
Engineered for pre-2007 diesel engines in on-road applications as well as all model year diesel engines in off-road applications. Also engineered for all gasoline engines recommending API SL specifications including turbo-charged vehicles. Provides superior wear protection and fuel efficiency.
AMSOIL (HDD) Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil delivers extraordinary lubrication in both diesel and gasoline engines found in commercial, fleet and personal vehicles. By combining the industry’s premier synthetic technology with AMSOIL premium additives, AMSOIL Series 3000 exceeds the higher performance demands of modern engines, including those with turbochargers. It withstands the stress of higher heat, higher acid levels and excessive soot-loading found in exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)-equipped engines. AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil consistently outperforms conventional and synthetic diesel 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.
Maximum Protection Against Engine Wear
Even under high temperatures and pressures, AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Diesel Oil’s superior film strength and anti-wear additives help prevent metal-to-metal contact. AMSOIL Series 3000 reduces ring wear, cylinder bore polishing, oil consumption and valvetrain wear for improved engine life and lower maintenance costs.
Maximizes Fuel Economy
AMSOIL Series 3000 Heavu-DutyDiesel Oil is energy efficient for reduced fuel costs. Its low viscosity minimizes “drag” associated with high-viscosity oils, allowing the engine to operate more freely, maximizing power and fuel economy.
Extends Drain Intervals
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system deliver maximum engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals, reducing vehicle maintenance and waste oil disposal costs.
Controls Soot-Thickening and Wear
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel 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 attaching together to form larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is controlled.
Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil effectively reduces high-temperature volatility (evaporation), outperforming conventional oils. Because less oil vapor passes into the combustion chamber, oil consumption and emissions are reduced. Additionally, lower volatility helps AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection and excellent fuel economy.
Excels in Extreme Temperatures
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown, oxidation and sludge formation better than conventional oils. And unlike conventional petroleum oils, AMSOIL Series 3000 contains no wax. It stays fluid down to -50°C (-58°F) for improved cold-temperature oil flow, reduced bearing wear and easier starting.
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for diesel engines, including those that are trubocharged, gasoline engines and other applications that require any of the following specifications:
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is compatible with other conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils 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 motor oils.
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in unmodified, mechanically-sound vehicles or equipment as follows:
Diesel Engine Service
Gasoline Engine Service
*Operating conditions and drain intervals for severe and normal service are defined by the OEM. Refer to your owner’s manual.
Note: Extended drain intervals are not recommended when using biofuels containing >10% ethanol or 10% biodiesel (B10). Follow OEM drain intervals or extend drain intervals with oil analysis.Buy & Pricing
