So you’re a snow enthusiast and you can’t wait to get out in the fresh powder? We have the deal for you. Before you load up the snowmobiles on the trailer and head for the hills, you need to add Amsoil® Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil into the tank.
Snowmobiles are meant to ridden hard. Rarely do you just idle them around on the snow. Getting them started with the centrifugal clutch means you give it throttle, and it’s usually all of it. When you’re up to speed you tend to relax a little unless you’re in a race. Then it’s all go and little slow.
The Amsoil® Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is formulated to work in all 2-stroke snowmobiles including Ski-Doo, Arctic Cat, and Polaris. It’s simple and easy to use as a replacement for your current oil or you can use a 50:1 mix as a replacement. This oil is a detergent formula so that it keeps your injectors or carburetor and engine running clean and smooth to prevent valves sticking under hard use. It’s compatible with all 2-stroke oils, and it has a low smoke formula to prevent the white cloud you typically see with other oils as they drive you away with a heavy cough. The oil also includes these great properties:
Anti-Scuff / Anti-Wear
If you’ve been a snowmobile enthusiast for a long time you know that snowmobiles have been using leaner gas and oil mixtures over the years to clean up the emissions. That also means less protection for your engine, more heat, and more friction inside the engine. None of those are good for long-term durability. The Interceptor oil uses high molecular weight components with a high flash point that won’t burn up in the combustion cycle. They survive well and help lubricate the engine components rather than vaporizing and head out the exhaust without helping the engine.
Detergents in an oil doesn’t sound right. How can an oil clean while it protects? AMSOIL’s Interceptor oil has additives that won’t add to the mess in the combustion chamber. They won’t burn, and they help keep the valves, piston ring, and spark plug clean while the engine is running. The harder you run the engine, the more they clean. That’s crazy, isn’t it?
Hearing about the oil isn’t enough. You want to know how well it really works. We understand that. Look at these two real-world case studies and you’ll understand why you need the Interceptor oil from your local AMSOIL dealer:
Imagine you’re in a race. Not just any race, but the Pro finals at the AMSOIL Snocross where you can’t afford to have a breakdown. Lincoln Lemiuex was facing a breakdown. His Ski-Doo lost a coolant hose clamp and all the coolant. While most would call it a day, put the snowmobile back on the trailer, and go home, Lincoln is a racer. Racers don’t quit. Lincoln soldiered on, no coolant and all. You can imagine how hot the engine got. Not just hot, but melting parts of the engine hot. The exhaust power valve covers, o-rings, and gaskets were a lost cause. They couldn’t stand the heat. Lincoln kept going. At the end of the day his team pulled the engine and found that the Amsoil® Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil kept the oil lubricated during the whole meltdown. They didn’t need to rebuild anything, and everything but the melted pieces could be reused immediately. With the covers, o-rings, and gaskets replaced, they put the same engine back in and ran it the next day. The Interceptor oil prevented a catastrophic loss.
Wear Resistance and Protection
To prove the wear resistance and protection that the Interceptor oil has, three outfitters in Wisconsin were given a sled that included the oil for the 2015 / 2016 winter season. Only one sled for each outfitter had the AMSOIL Interceptor Oil, and they ran all their machines during the winter. The test machines weren’t spared. They were ridden hard, through snow, ice, and pushed to their limits. When the riding season was over, each sled was disassembled and inspected for wear. What was found was that each engine had no scuffing, and all the pistons and exhaust valves should little to no wear. The others not running the AMSOIL showed more wear on the internal engine parts.
While snowmobiles have been the main topic, Amsoil® Interceptor 2-Stroke Oil is meant for all 2-stroke engines. That means snow blowers, lawn and garden equipment, and motorcycles too. If it uses 2-stroke oil, the Interceptor oil will do well in that application. The snow machines are a great test bed to prove how well it works, and that means you’ll have great success with it too. You can mix it with standard conventional oil, but limit how much you mix. It’s best to run out the conventional oil mixture before adding in the AMSOIL 50:1 gas-to-oil mixture. You should notice a difference when making the switch.
Be sure to contact your local AMSOIL dealer for the Interceptor oil, and look at the other AMSOIL products that can keep your 2-stroke, 4-stroke, and metal parts lubricated for maximum durability. Every synthetic oil change will maximize the life of your machines. For more information, to buy AMSOIL or to become an Amsoil Dealer please visit www.buygreatoil.com.
