AMSOIL For Marine Applications
What's the unique problem of the marine engine? Water. Water promotes rust, corrosion and rapid wear. Freshwater-cooled boats operate cool, which promotes in-engine condensation and rust. Closed-system marine engines tend to operate very hot, which promotes the creation of acids - and engine corrosion. The longer the engine works, the more water and acid build, and the acid and water continue to work after engine shutdown.
Inboard Marine Gas Engines
AMSOIL Synthetic Engine Oils
AMSOIL synthetic engine oils shield engine parts from rust and continuously neutralize engine oil acids. They are ideal for use during operations and lay-up. Additionally, AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are formulated for extended drain intervals. In fact, many AMSOIL product users base their oil changes on the findings of used oil analysis instead of hours, a critical benefit in operations where time is money and oil changes are difficult.
AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are extended drain capable because they are synthetic oils. Synthetics are much more resistant to heat, oxidation and mechanical breakdown than are conventional oils, which helps synthetic last longer than conventional oils last.
AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are formulated with long-lasting, top-quality additives to take advantage of the durability of synthetic basestocks, and make extended drain capable oils. Finally, synthetic oils offer superior lubrication and protection to that offered by conventional oils, due to the ability of synthetics to maintain low temperature fluidity for rapid post-startup lubrication and protection and their ability to maintain a durable film of protection in hightemperature operations.
Engine Oil By-Pass Filter
Conventional oil filters cannot remove water from the oil circulation. They also do not consistently capture particles smaller than 15 microns. Research shows particles in the 5 to 20 micron size range cause up to 60 percent of engine wear. The AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filter, used in conjunction with full flow oil filtration, removes water. It also removes virtually all particles down to three microns in size, and even removes particles smaller than three microns with greater than 50 percent efficiency. Ultra-filtered oil - like that delivered by the By-Pass Oil Filter - lasts longer and performs better than conventionally filtered oil, and that increases engine life and performance.
Engine Oil Full Flow Filter
The AMSOIL Super Duty Full Flow Oil Filter offers superior filter life and filtration to that offered by conventional full flow oil filters. Its blend of cellulose, fiberglass and synthetic media and tight pleating optimize small particle capture, total particle capture, media durability and media capacity. In fact, performance tests demonstrate the AMSOIL Super Duty Filter provides over 75 percent better combined efficiency/capacity than other leading filters, and that increases filter life.
The AMSOIL Super Duty Filter also features an oil pressure relief valve when required, to ensure continuous oil flow; a heavy-duty drawn case with a drawn steel double-crimp base and rolled under seaming for filter body strength; and an anti-drain back valve when required to keep dirty oil in the filter when the engine is not running.

Fisherman Saves Time and Money
We fish three to six days at a time, sometimes trawling 24 hours a day. The engine runs at continuous load most of the time, which is ideal for a Detroit Diesel. But theres no getting around itwe really work that engine.
AMSOIL Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil and the AMSOIL Dual Gard filter give me the outstanding protection I demand and the extended drain intervals I want. I appreciate the savings in time and money.
Commercial fisherman Paul Daniels switched his Detroit Diesel 525 hp 12V-71T boat main engine over to AMSOIL Synthetic 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil and an AMSOIL Dual Gard By-Pass Oil Filter to increase engine life and decrease maintenance. Daniels had been changing his conventional oil at 250- to 300-hour intervals. With AMSOIL products on board, he conservatively increased his change intervals until he reached his present 2000 hour oil changes with sampling and filter changes at 500 hours.
Engine Life Increases 500 Percent
More than 60,000 tourists annually visit Alpine Canyons, South Island, New Zealand for high-speed thrills on Shotover Jet Ltd. jetboats. The tourist trade is tough service for the boats. The Chevrolet 454 cu. in. V8-engined jetboats are in service 365 days a year, making up to 28 high speed river trips a day. The boats develop maximum torque at extremely low engine operating temperatures, due to the cooling effect of the snow-fed river water they draw. How does Shotover protect these hard-working engines?
With AMSOIL synthetic motor oils and AMSOIL by-pass oil filters. Before converting the boats to AMSOIL motor oil and filters and propane fuel, oil change intervals were at 25 hours and engine life in the 500 hour range. The propane fuel, AMSOIL synthetic motor oil and AMSOIL by-pass oil filter combination provides 400-hour oil change intervals and engine life up to 2500 hours thats 16 times greater oil service life and five times greater engine life a huge savings for Shotover Jet Ltd.

AMSOIL Gave Me More Power
David A. Zgrabik owns a guide service and is also a tournament angler. His success depends on the reliability of his equipment. I started the year with only 10 trips booked, said Zgrabik, and when was said and done I ended up with I already have 12 booked for the coming year!
Zgrabik also made the most of his opportunities to fish in tournaments. He said, I have to say it was not a year, with five first place awards and three big bass awards.
After starting to run AMSOIL Series 2000 2-Cycle Racing Oil in my motor, I noticed considerably less smoke at startup, improved idling and more power. I even have an unexplainable 200 rpm increase! There is no way I would without my AMSOIL motor oil now!
