Series 3000 100% Synthetic 5W-30 Diesel Oil (HDD) delivers extraordinary lubrication in both diesel and gasoline
engines found in commercial, fleet and personal vehicles. By combining the industry’s premier synthetic technology
with AMSOIL premium additives, AMSOIL HDD exceeds the higher performance demands of modern engines. It withstands
the stress of higher heat, higher acid levels and excessive soot loading found in EGR-equipped engines. AMSOIL
Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Diesel Oil consistently outperforms conventional and synthetic diesel oils for
long-lasting performance and protection.
AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world’s first API qualified
synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL The First in Synthetics® to do the best job
protecting your engine.
Extends Drain Intervals
AMSOIL HDD can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional oils. Its unique synthetic
formulation and long drain additive system deliver the best possible engine protection, cleanliness and performance
over extended drain intervals, reducing vehicle maintenance and waste oil disposal costs.
Maximizes Fuel Economy
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is energy efficient for reduced fuel costs. Its low viscosity
minimizes “drag” associated with high viscosity oils, allowing the engine to operate more freely, maximizing power
and fuel economy.
Unsurpassed Protection Against Engine Wear
In the Four-Ball Wear Test (ASTM D-4172B) AMSOIL HDD demonstrated better anti-wear performance than competitive
petroleum and synthetic oils. Even under high temperatures and pressures, its superior film strength and anti-wear
additives help prevent metal-to-metal contact. AMSOIL HDD reduces ring wear, cylinder bore polishing, oil
consumption and valve train wear for improved engine life and lower maintenance costs.
Controls Soot Thickening and Wear
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is heavily fortified with detergent/dispersant additives and is
naturally resistant to soot. It keeps soot particles suspended independently, preventing them from attaching
together to form larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot related wear is
Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions
AMSOIL HDD loses only 7.6% of its mass to high
temperature volatility (evaporation) in the NOACK test, outperforming all conventional oils. Because less oil vapor
passes into the combustion chamber, oil consumption and emissions are reduced. Additionally, lower volatility helps
AMSOIL HDD retain its viscosity after high temperature service for continued dependable protection and excellent
Excels in Extreme Temperatures
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown, oxidation and sludge formation
better than conventional oils. And unlike conventional petroleum oils, AMSOIL HDD contains no wax. It stays fluid
down to -50°C (-58°F) for improved cold temperature oil flow, reduced bearing wear and easier starting.
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for diesel engines and other applications requiring any
of the listed worldwide specifications and gasoline engines requiring API SL, SJ, SH . . . or ACEA A3.

AMSOIL HDD is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL
motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits.
AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed. Aftermarket oil additives are
not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor
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
*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.
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.
