    AMSOIL Announces Reformulated Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil Line

    October 5, 2017

    AMSOIL has launched a new formulation of its top-tier Signature Series Synthetic
    Motor Oil. Built upon a solid foundation of unsurpassed performance and protection,
    the AMSOIL Signature Series line now offers motorists a new level of engine
    protection that exceeds new and upcoming engine oil specifications.

    AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provides 75 percent more engine
    protection against horsepower loss and wear than required by a leading industry
    standard^1, extending the life of vital components like pistons and cams. Its strong
    fluid film keeps metal surfaces separated while its robust anti-wear additives
    further reduce wear in metal-to-metal contact regions for maximum engine life. It
    features an advanced detergent system to protect vital engine parts including
    pistons and rings.

    Low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) is a common issue found in today’s advanced engines
    and is much more destructive than typical pre-ignition. AMSOIL Signature Series
    achieved 100 percent protection against LSPI in the engine test required by GM’s
    dexos1® Gen 2 specification^2. It is ideal for use in both turbos and direct
    injection engines, protecting turbochargers 72 percent better than required by the
    GM dexos1 Gen 2 specification^3.

    Additional benefits include sludge protection, thermal stability for easier cold
    starting and limited oil consumption. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil is
    available in seven viscosities: 0W-20, 0W-40, 5W-20, 0W-30, 5W-30, 10W-30 & 5W-50.
    It offers guaranteed protection in normal service for extended drain intervals up to
    25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.

    At any point. I did my first oil change at 1,700 and went straight to Amsoil 5W50. Planned to do it at 1,000 but ordered the wrong filter and kept driving while I waited on the order swap.

    Interesting. I currently use ss 10w30. And I buy locally. I'll have to see if they will get some in stock.

    Just order it. If you buy locally, get your dealers ZO number and he will still get credit for the sale.

    Why would you use 10W in MN! Especially in winter, I wouldn't do that unless stored in climate controlled environment.

    Many premium synthetic 10W-30/40 oils have decent cold flow at least to minus 10 if not colder. Also, if it is not a daily driver, it can sit undriven in colder temps without needing to be in a heated garage.

    You have to do a little research on amsoil. I never start the car in the winter. And according to my speedhut oil pressure gauge, I have the same psi (nearly 100psi on cold start up) with this oil as I did with royal purple hps 5w30.

    I want the most protection and I feel I get it with amsoil 10w30.

    I thought Ford recommends driving the car every ~month. I did run amsoil 0w30 before and its great oil (more like a 5w) but i like the lower price of m1ep

    I'm figuring that even in MN, the temp goes above -10 at some point every 30 days. LOL.

    Im going to try and start mine every two to three weeks. I've heard after two weeks the oil film on the bearings gets kind of thin? I use amsoil 10w30 ss and im thinking about switching to 0w40.

    How come SVT doesn't sell things like Amsoil? Logistics?

    Starting a car in cold climate weather and not actually driving it does more harm than good. I could go on and on as with my reasons.

    I also have woods in my backyard, and have had to deal with mice in the past. Mice are looking for a warm place, another reason why I won't start the car in the winter.

    Shake away granule works pretty well to keep rodents away if applied every few weeks

    Pull the fuel pump fuse in spring and do a few cranks before firing up. Lack of lubrication during cranking isn't the end of the world. Cold startups with immediate load and oil pressure building is what does the damage. Some cars sit on dealer lots for months and or years (VW) with hardly any starting or driving, 3-4 months during winter isn't hurting anything. Ford and other manufactures recommend starting cars frequently to prevent seals etc from drying out. Starts in the winter and short trips are the worst. When vehicles first start, moisture builds and if not driven to operating temp for a extended period this moisture never boils out of the oiling system. Like the guy above said many other reasons also..

    On newer cars just hold the throttle pedal to the floor while cranking, it won’t start and builds OP.

    Yes, P.

    The one place out here that sells it is a parts shop owned by a complete yom yom. There might be another place but it is way over-priced and not worth my money.
