AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (ACD)
Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (ACD)
Outperforms Conventional Diesel Oils
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
• SAE 10W-30 performance without VI improvers

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 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
*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.
