XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil

Boosted Protection For Extended Life

Resists Oil Breakdown

XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor OilXL Synthetic Motor Oil maintains its fluidity (viscosity) under the most extreme conditions. Some oils break down and significantly increase in viscosity after extended periods of high-temperature operation. These changes can cause excessive oil consumption, engine deposits, accelerated wear and difficult cold-starts. The GM Oxidation and Deposit (GMOD) Test consists of a 5.7L V8 engine running at 293ºF (100º hotter than normal) for 100 hours. These severe operating conditions test an oils ability to control viscosity increase, deposits and oil consumption. The testing revealed that AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil provides 64 percent more protection against oil breakdown1 than required by the GM dexos1® Gen 2 specification, ensuring protection in extreme temperatures.

Protects Pistons from Low-Speed Pre-Ignition

XL Synthetic Motor Oil features unique chemistry proven to protect your engine against the harmful effects of low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI). LSPI is the spontaneous ignition of the fuel/air mixture prior to spark-triggered ignition. Most new engines feature gasoline direct-inject (GDI), often coupled with a turbocharger. These technologies heighten the possibility of LSPI events, which can destroy pistons and connecting rods. A properly formulated motor oil is critical for protecting your engine against LSPI.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like GM have addressed the issue by designing tests to determine a motor oil’s ability to prevent LSPI. XL Synthetic Motor Oil achieved 100 percent protection against LSPI2 – zero occurrences were recorded throughout five consecutive tests.

Keeps Engines Clean

AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is fortified with detergent and dispersant additives. Its boosted additive package effectively raises the total base number (TBN) to neutralize acids and resist sludge, corrosion and carbon deposits. XL provides 25 percent more cleaning power3 to help keep your engine running smoother, longer.

Reduces Maintenance

Motorists, business owners and fleet managers benefit from the boosted engine protection of AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil. Frequent oil changes are expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient. The extra protection built into XL can provide extended drain intervals up to 12,000 miles or one year4, if you choose, allowing you to change oil on your schedule, reduce maintenance, save money and reduce waste oil.

Maximizes Fuel Economy & Maintains Low Emissions

XL Synthetic Motor Oil is licenced by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet and exceed the requirements commonly found in owner’s manuals. It excels in fuel-economy testing, earning the additional “Resource Conserving” designation5 from the API. XL is also friendly toward modern emissions control systems, promoting proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions.

I love the fact I don’t have to change my oil 4times a year mow that I use the fuel saving XL 5 W-20.

 

XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil
By Izaak 9/1/2016

from Aspen, Colorado

Outstanding product I change oil at 10,000 miles not the 3,000 dealer oil change (so they can get in your wallet more often). I have 200,000 miles on my truck and 130,000 on my Toyota Hylander and they use about 3/4 qt of synthetic oil between oil changes. I use the highest rated Amsoil oil and air filters with every oil change.

I am on my second oil change with this product that replaced a factory synthetic blend. On initial start up there was a noticeable difference in how quiet engine noise was. Especially after several days not being started there was no “ticking” on start up with this product. Even after

 

Best all around synthetic engine oil.

I I have been using AMSOIL XL 5w20 synthetic engine oil, in my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.7L HEMI, for three years. I have engine conditions from long idle times to full out performance with my performance modified truck. I change my oil & oil filter every 5,000 miles, even though I think this oil would work all the way up to double mileage. The oil still looks very good at that mileage interval. I highly recommend the AMSOIL XL series, it cost less than the top grade synthetic engine oil, works very well in todays modern engines.
