AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Diesel Oil (ACD) is formulated with
premium synthetic base oils that exceed both 10W-30 multi-grade and
SAE 30 straight-grade viscosity requirements for outstanding
performance in modern and older diesel engines. Unlike conventional
SAE 30 motor oils, AMSOIL ACD has a naturally high viscosity index
and does not contain paraffin (wax). It has a -36°F pour point and
qualifies for SAE 10W, making it an “all season” multi-grade
lubricant with a wide operating temperature range. AMSOIL ACD is
formulated without viscosity index improvers (VI). This shear stable
formulation stops viscosity loss and associated bearing and cylinder
bore wear. AMSOIL ACD contains premium additives with a high 12 TBN
to neutralize acids from blow-by, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)
and high sulfur diesel fuels. It protects against damaging piston
deposits, ring sticking and sludge.
the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world’s
first API qualified synthetic motor oil back in 1972. Trust the
extensive experience of AMSOIL The First in Synthetics®
to do the best job protecting your equipment.
Where these viscosity grades are specified, AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE
30 Diesel Oil (ACD) provides outstanding performance as a
straight-grade SAE 30 for older two- and four-stroke diesels and as
a multi-grade SAE 10W-30 in modern four-stroke diesels as well as
gasoline engines. AMSOIL ACD is ideal for use in a wide variety of
light and heavy-duty applications, including agriculture, off-road
construction, trucking, mining, industrial (pumps and generators)
and personal automotive or commercial transportation. It is
recommended for use with low or high sulfur diesel fuels in
standard, turbocharged or supercharged engines, all off-road engines
and pre-2007 on-road engines.
• SAE 10W-30 performance without VI

AMSOIL ACD is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils,
however, mixing AMSOIL ACD with other oils will shorten the oil life
expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not
support extended drain intervals where AMSOIL ACD has been mixed
with another product.
Aftermarket additives are not
recommended for use with AMSOIL ACD.
AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for extended
drain intervals in unmodified(1), mechanically sound(2) vehicles or
equipment as follows:
Personal Light Truck Diesel
• Normal Service(3) — Up to
25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based
on oil analysis.
• Severe Service(4) — Up to
15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based
on oil analysis.
• Replace AMSOIL Ea™ full
flow oil filter at the time of oil change up to 25,000 miles
(other brands at standard OEM* intervals).
Commercial or Fleet Vehicles,
Long-Haul Trucks, Marine Craft, RV, Off-Road Equipment
• Non-EGR equipped
diesels — extend drain intervals up to two times
(2X) the OEM* recommended drain interval or one year, whichever
comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
• EGR equipped or low
emission diesels — extend drain intervals based on
oil analysis or use the OEM* recommended interval.
• Replace Donaldson
Endurance™ or AMSOIL Ea™ full flow oil filters at the time
of oil change up to two times (2X) longer than the OEM*
standard interval, not to exceed 60,000 miles in long-haul
Gasoline Engine Service
• In gasoline engines, oil drain
intervals may be extended up to two times (2X) the OEM*
recommended drain interval (not to exceed 15,000 miles without
oil analysis) or one year, whichever comes first. Replace AMSOIL
Ea™ full flow filter at the time of oil change up to 25,000
miles. Replace other brand oil filters at standard OEM*
*OEM = Original Equipment
(1) Where the engine
or operating conditions have been modified from the original
manufacturers' design, no oil change interval recommendation is
made. Oil change intervals are at the owner's discretion. Examples
include the use of performance computer chips; modified exhaust,
fuel or air induction systems and the use of fuels other than those
recommended for normal operation by the manufacturers.
(2) Engines are in
good working condition and within the factory design settings.
Mechanically sound engines, for example, do not leak oil or consume
excessive amounts, are not worn out, do not overheat, do not have
internal or external anti-freeze leaks and have a properly working
emission control system. AMSOIL recommends repairs be made to
malfunctioning engines prior to the installation of AMSOIL synthetic
transportation vehicles frequently traveling greater than 10 miles
(16 km) at a time and not operating under severe service.
(4) Extensive engine
idling, daily short trip driving less than 10 miles (16 km),
frequent towing, plowing or hauling heavy loads and frequent driving
in dusty conditions. AMSOIL Ea™ and Donaldson Endurance™ full flow
oil filters are designed for extended drain intervals. They stop
smaller particles, have less restriction and last longer than
regular filters. For best performance, use AMSOIL Ea or Donaldson
Endurance oil filters.

Ea By-pass oil filters are specialized for
the removal of small, wear-causing dirt particles, thereby extending
engine life. AMSOIL encourages using an AMSOIL Ea By-pass filter
system for maximum engine and oil life.
