Outstanding Engine Protection – Dexos D 5W-30

Wear on camshaft lobes can negatively impact valve timing, leading to loss of horsepower and fuel economy. AMSOIL’s Dexos D Diesel Oil’s 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. Third-party testing is proof AMSOIL’s 100% Synthetic 5W-30 Oil delivers up to 6X more wear protection than required. You will  maximize vehicle life and reduce maintenance costs and downtime.

AMSOIL 5W-30 Dexos D Viscosity Control

Formulated with advanced synthetic base oils and detergent/dispersant additives, AMSOIL Dexos D 100% Synthetic Diesel Oil minimizes viscosity change while keeping soot particles suspended independently, helping prevent the formation of larger, wear-causing particles. Lower volatility also helps in retaining its viscosity after high-temperature service for added engine protection and increased fuel economy.

Excels in Extreme Temperatures

AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Diesel Oil (Meets Dexos D) is formulated to deliver improved heat and oxidation resistance compared to conventional diesel oils. It provides clean engine operation and helps maintain power and fuel efficiency for superior engine performance. AMSOIL Synthetic Diesel Oil also flows dependably in cold temperatures for easier startup and improved engine protection.

5W-30 DexosD Minimizes Oil Consumption

AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Diesel Oil has low volatility (burn-off), reducing oil consumption during operation and passing less oil vapor into the combustion chamber. It is safe for diesel emissions systems.

Best oil for my 2018 Chev Equinox diesel

By  JIM,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Washington State  on  May 25, 2024
I have tried all oils that meets my Chev Equinox diesel engine requirements. Hands down Amsoil oil is the best. Better mpg , protection , engine runs smoother and quieter. I was never a real believer in Amsoil, in the last 7 years I am a true believer. Amsoil cannot be beat.

Quiets my engine.

By  MIKE,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Michigan   on  January 08, 2024
I have found that Amsoil has quieted my gmc 2.8L and has made it run very smoothly. The first time I tried it I was astonished at how much better it ran. I will always be using Amsoil in my products.

2018 Canyon Duramax

By  FRED,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Colorado   on  November 13, 2022
The Diesel engine in our 2018 GMC Canyon runs smoother and quieter. The truck gets 1 mpg better fuel mileage since the switch from Mobil1.

Powerstroke 3.0 best oil

By  RUSSELL,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Glasgow Kentucky   on  April 20, 2023
When you spend $70k for a F150 the best oil is good investment for taking care of engine and turbo charger

2.8 Duramax – Stoked!

By  JARRED,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Colorado  on  September 21, 2023
Best oil I’ve tried for 2.8 Duramax. It seems to run a lot quieter I’ve been very pleased with it. Only thing I wish they sold a 5quart jug instead of having to buy the single quarts

F150 Powerstroke 3.0

By  MIGUEL,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Odessa Tx  on  December 22, 2022
Awesome product & fast shipping AMS oil never disappoint me. Highly recommended. Ford Dealership didn’t have any oil in stock or any commercial dealers around me.

Motor oil

By  GEORGE,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Quebec   on  October 24, 2022

I felt the difference in the operation of the engine a week after the oil change. The engine began to work softer, the noise level decreased. I did not notice the difference in fuel economy, but the engine began to work more gently and responds to acceleration more quickly.

I use this over the OEM preferred oil !!!

By  ROBERT,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Belle River, Ontario  on  September 15, 2022

I own a 2019 F-150 Powerstroke 3.0 Diesel. There is only 1 (one) recommended oil for this engine and it is a Ford 5W30 oil, made by Kendal, I believe. That is what I was using since new, until Amsoil came out with the exact same spec oil. Even though I paid for an 8 year extended warranty and service plan, (including oil changes), I still bring my own Amsoil oil to each maintenance visit when it is oil change time. I used Signature Series in my 2015 F-150 with the 2.7 Eco-Boost and the engine performed fantastic. So when I got the Powerstroke, I wanted to use Amsoil as well but had to wait until they came out with the different spec oil and now that all it gets!! It is running smoother than ever!!

Oil change

By  SHAYNE,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Alberta  on  November 02, 2021

Changed to this from my AC Delco oil. Immediately noticed that the valve noise on cold startup was eliminated and oil pressure has been running about 200 kpa higher than previous oil and even after a run down the highway the pressure is still more than 100 kpa higher.
