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.
AMSOIL, 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 improvers
• Cost-effective replacement for conventional oils
• Excellent shear stability
• Outstanding wear protection
• Superior protection over a broad range of operating temperatures
• Extended service life with oil analysis

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, including modern low
emission diesels such as those equipped with EGR systems.
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 associated 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:
Diesel Engine Service
• Normal Service — Up to 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
• Severe Service — Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
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.
*OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer
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.
AMSOIL 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.
Oil Analyzers Inc. (715-395-0222) is a division of AMSOIL that provides
cost-effective, quality oil analysis services.
