GM Duramax Diesel Engines
You've spent your hard earned money on the GM Duramax Diesel option now don't you think you owe it to yourself to use the very best oil in it?
Learn the facts that GM Duramax and the oil industry don't want you to know!
GM Duramax needs to sell you trucks, that's their business. GM Duramax has product planned obsolescence built into their business plan. They won't tell you about or recommend AMSOIL because your GM Duramax engine would last twice as long, that's not in their business interest! Also they make a tremendous profit on the 10 cent GM OEM oil that they sell (that's what it costs to manufacture). This OEM oil provides two funtions, it keeps your GM Duramax on their planned schedule for repairs and wearout and it adds a tremendously profitable add-on sale. So recommending an oil that would make their GM Duramax last longer and reduce their oil sales would be counter-productive to their business plan.

Improves Fuel Economy
Resists Oxidation - Reduces Engine Wear
Extended Drain Intervals
Provides Low Temperature Protection
Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions
Diesel engines, fleet vehicle engines and industrial engines: drain oil at intervals up to two times longer than recommended by the engine manufacturer or at six month intervals. Extended drain intervals may be used if they are supported by the findings of used oil analysis.
Personal car and light-truck non-turbocharged gasoline engines and marine craft gasoline engines: drain oil at intervals up to three times longer than those recommended by the engine manufacturer, or one year, whichever comes first.
Non-commercial, turbocharged passenger car gasoline engines: drain oil at intervals up to two times longer than those recommended by the engine manufacturer, or six months, whichever comes first.
High-performance or racing engines: drain oil at intervals determined by the findings of a used oil analysis program.
Motorcycle engines and small four-cycle gasoline engines: use engine manufacturer's oil drain recommendations.
Change AMSOIL Full Flow Oil Filters at 12,500-mile or six-month intervals, whichever comes first, in gasoline engines. In diesel engines change AMSOIL Full-Flow Oil Filter at 7,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. Change other manufacturers' oil filters at the engine manufacturer's recommended filter change intervals.

New! Torque-Drive Synthetic ATF
Product Code: ATD
Allison® transmission owners are being held hostage. They are being forced to purchase a transmission fluid that is costing more money than they should be spending. They do, however, have options.
Allison® transmission has established the Technical Engineering Specification 295 (TES 295) for automatic transmission fluids. When TES 295 products are used in Allison® transmissions and according to Allison® recommendations as outlined in Allison® Service Information Letter 10-TR-99, Rev. B, the service life of these oils can be extended several times that of mineral oils. This extended drain recommendation saves money for Allison® transmission owners.
The only oil on the market, however, that is formally identified by Allison® as a TES 295 product is TranSynd® Automatic Transmission Fluid, which happens to be sold by Allison® in partnership with Castrol®. Other companies seeking TES 295 approval are faced with formidable obstacles. Allison® has not made its stationary test stand available to the competition and has not established formalized field trial protocol. Outside companies, therefore, without unreasonably heavy investments in an ambiguous test program, are locked out of the market. And Allison®, by positioning itself as the only player, is able to charge exorbitant prices for their product. As a result, Allison® transmission owners who want to benefit from the potential savings realized through extended drain intervals are being taken advantage of.
In response, AMSOIL closely examined TranSynd® and developed a cost-effective replacement product named Torque-Drive. Torque-Drive is a premium synthetic transmission fluid based on the same type of chemistry as TranSynd®. This is supported by the infrared (IR) scan and physical data comparisons included here. Clearly, the testing shows no measurable performance differences between Torque-Drive and TranSynd®. They do, however, differ in cost. Allison® transmission owners save money with Torque-Drive.
The Allison® extended warranty states that Allison® will only cover repairs in which the transmission had been operated with TranSynd® or an equivalent fluid which meets the TES 295 specification. Torque-Drive is, in fact, based on the same type of chemistry as TranSynd® and is, therefore, recommended by AMSOIL as a replacement for TranSynd® and for use in all TES 295 applications. And because it is not specifically designated by Allison® as a TES 295 product, the AMSOIL warranty is in place to cover all lubricant related failures.
All Allison® transmission owners would be wise to reevaluate their use of TranSynd®, as well as their investment in the Allison® extended warranty program. There is no justification for paying the high cost for TranSynd® when an equivalent product is available for less.
Engineered to eliminate the deficiencies common to all conventional, petroleum ATF's, AMSOIL Torque-Drive provides superior performance and protection against thermal and oxidative degradation, sludge and varnish formation, viscosity shear down, cold temperature oil thickening, poor friction stability, high component wear and shortened oil life. Automatic transmission operating expenses can be directly linked to transmission fluid quality. Poor quality oils need frequent changes and they reduce the effective service life of transmissions. Delivering the ultimate in oxidation resistance, wear control and friction performance, AMSOIL Torque-Drive extends lubricant life up to six times* and provides protection beyond that possible from conventional ATF's. Vehicles stay on the road longer, unnecessary labor and maintenance costs are reduced, and the return on costly transmission investments is maximized. Immediate financial benefits are realized upon the installation of AMSOIL Torque-Drive.

The AMSOIL Dahl Fuel Filter/Water Separator
The AMSOIL Dahl Fuel Filter/Water Separator removes water and solid contaminants from fuel before it reaches the fuel pump and injection system.
Water and solid contaminants reduce the effectiveness of fuel's lubricative coating on high precision injection components. If this protection continues to decrease, the results can include wear, erosion, surface pitting and eventual ly loss of pressure.
Many existing fuel filters are not designed to remove significant amounts of water. They are designed to simply filter in only one step. To accomplish this, they must be porous enough to allow a sufficient volume of flow. This limits its filtering ability to between only 10 and 30 microns. Using a tighter media would plug up too quickly and the filter would need frequent element changes.
The AMSOIL Dahl system has none of these shortcomings. Its dual chamber 3-stage fuel filter/water separators provide efficient water separation and contaminant filtration. The unique patented depressurizer cone spreads the flow of the fuel. With more area to flow over, there is greater separation of water and dirt from the fuel.
The AMSOIL Dahl system has less mechanical flow resistance than other separators, because the fuel only changes direction twice. The AMSOIL Dahl system removes virtually 100 percent of the water and most of the solid contaminants in the fuel.
The AMSOIL Dahl system prolongs system life by eliminating pump and injector overhauls caused by water-contaminated fuel. It also reduces downtime spent repairing the fuel pump and injection system. The loss of income from only a few hours of downtime is greater than the cost of an AMSOIL Dahl system.
The AMSOIL Dahl system includes a reverse flow valve that holds the prime in the fuel system by not allowing flow back to the tank during shut down. It also helps eliminate air entrapment because the inlet and outlet ports are at the top of the unit. The fuel changes direction only twice, creating less flow resistance and allowing longer pump and element life.
Most solid contaminants are removed by the depressurizer cone in the bowl before reaching the filter element, which has extra media. These characteristics allow the element to last up to 40,000 miles under normal conditions.
