Don’t Regret Not Preparing Equipment for Tough Winter Temperatures

 

thermometer-imageThe fall months are the time to place boats, motorcycles and lawncare equipment into storage and prepare snowmobiles, snowblowers and other vehicles for the coming winter.

AMSOIL products are formulated to provide maximum protection for engines and fuel systems during storage, while AMSOIL synthetic motor oils’ low pour points provide superior cold-temperature protection and performance in two- and four-stroke winter equipment.

Fall Storage Protection

Gasoline can break down in as little as 60 days, causing varnish and gums that clog injectors, fuel lines and carburetors, leading to poor engine performance and starting problems. In many applications, draining the fuel system can be impractical, and doing so can expose the system to corrosion on the bare metal in the tank and fuel system and cause gasket and seal cracking.

stabilizer-fogging-oilAMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer reduces the oxidation that occurs when fuel is stored for extended periods, improving performance, extending equipment life and decreasing maintenance expenses.

During storage, fluctuations in ambient temperatures can form condensation within the engine that can cause surface corrosion on cylinder liners, piston rings, anti-friction bearings and steel/iron contact surfaces on rotational seals. Long periods of storage can also dry out cylinders, often resulting in permanent damage when the equipment is dry-started in the spring.

AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil offers superior film retention, providing long-term protection against corrosion and dry starts, extending engine life and reducing operating expenses. Its aerosol spray formulation offers easy and clean application, while reaching more components and offering complete distribution of the oil, something especially beneficial in applications with horizontal cylinder orientation, such as outboard motors.

Winter Four-Stroke Performance

4stroke-performanceConventional oils thicken in the cold, which can result in inadequate lubrication to critical engine parts at cold start-up, or even prevent the engine from starting.

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke® Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil provides serious protection and performance in four-stroke engines, including ATVs and snowmobiles. Its broad 0W-40 viscosity rating effectively protects in both hot and cold temperature extremes.

New 5W-30 (2019) AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke® Synthetic Small Engine Oil provides exceptional protection in the severe-service conditions common in both gasoline- and diesel-fueled small engines, including welders, skid steers, compressors, snowblowers and more. It remains fluid at subzero temperatures for superior cold-weather protection.

Winter Two-Stroke Performance

dimator-interceptorAMSOIL DOMINATOR® and INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oils provide exceptional performance in snowmobiles and other two-stroke equipment. AMSOIL DOMINATOR is formulated with heavier base oils for “on the edge” operation, while also protecting pistons and bearings subjected to the rigors of extreme riding. AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR is engineered specifically for powersports applications and engines equipped with exhaust power valves. It contains the finest synthetic base oils and additives for exceptional cleanliness, while controlling exhaust valve sticking and providing outstanding overall lubrication.

Gasoline Additive

quickshot-imageAMSOIL Quickshot® is formulated to thoroughly clean varnish, gums and insoluble debris in two- and four-stroke gasoline-powered small engines and powersports equipment fuel systems, restoring peak performance. It effectively addresses performance issues related to ethanol, water and dirty pump gas, while stabilizing fuel between uses and during short-term storage periods.

Quickshot made SEMA product of the year in 2011!!
