Extra Protection for Extended Oil Life
AMSOIL XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil is the choice for those who want that extra layer of protection for their vehicle. Its boosted formulation delivers extra cleaning power, outstanding wear control, excellent high and low temperature protection that is ideal for the Canadian climate, as well as exceptional fuel economy. XL 5W-20 is engineered for advanced automotive technology, including turbo and direct injection engines. It is packed full of extra engine protection, allowing you to drive up to 12,000-miles or one year, whichever comes first, between oil changes.
See the Product Data Bulletin for full details.
Resists Oil Breakdown
XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil maintains its fluidity (viscosity) under the most extreme conditions. Some oils break down and significantly increase in viscosity after extended periods of high-temperature operation. These changes can cause excessive oil consumption, engine deposits, accelerated wear and difficult cold-starts if the oil is not changed more frequently. The GM Oxidation and Deposit (GMOD) Test consists of a 5.7L V8 engine running at 293ºF (100º hotter than normal) for 100 hours. These severe operating conditions test an oils ability to control viscosity increase, deposits and oil consumption. The testing revealed that AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil provides 64 percent more protection against oil breakdown1 than required by the GM dexos1® Gen 2 specification, ensuring protection in extreme temperatures.

Protects Engines From Low-Speed Pre-Ignition
XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil features unique chemistry proven to protect your engine against the harmful effects of low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI). LSPI is the spontaneous ignition of the fuel/air mixture prior to spark-triggered ignition. Most new engines feature gasoline direct-inject (GDI), often coupled with a turbocharger. These technologies heighten the possibility of LSPI events, which can destroy pistons and connecting rods. A properly formulated motor oil is critical for protecting your engine against LSPI.
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like GM have addressed the issue by designing tests to determine a motor oil's ability to prevent LSPI. XL Synthetic Motor Oil achieved 100 percent protection against LSPI2 - zero occurrences were recorded throughout five consecutive tests.

KEEPS ENGINES CLEAN
AMSOIL XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil is fortified with detergent and dispersant additives for added engine cleaning power. Its boosted additive package effectively raises the total base number (TBN) to neutralize acids and resist sludge, corrosion and carbon deposits. Because of the specialized formula, XL 5W-20 provides 25 percent more cleaning power3 to help keep your engine running smoother, longer.

Motorists, business owners and fleet managers benefit from the boosted engine protection of AMSOIL XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil. Frequent oil changes are expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient. The extra protection built into XL 2W-20 can provide extended drain intervals up to 12,000 miles or one year, if you choose, allowing you to change oil on your schedule, reduce maintenance, save money and reduce waste oil.
Maximizes Fuel Economy & Maintains Low Emissions
XL Synthetic Motor Oil is licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet and exceed the requirements commonly found in owner's manuals. It excels in fuel-economy testing, earning the additional "Resource Conserving" designation5 from the API. AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is also friendly toward modern emissions control systems, promoting proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions.
5Applicable to XL 0W-20, 5W-20, 5W-30 and 10W-30 motor oil.
- Use in gasoline-powered engines that require any of the subsequent specifications:
- API SP (Resource Conserving), SN PLUS, SM, GM dexos1 Gen 2 (supersedes 6094M);
- ACEA A1/B1;
- Ford WSS-M2C945-A, WSS-M2C930-A;
- Chrysler MS-6395;
- ILSAC GF-6A, GF-5, GF-4
AMSOIL XL 5W-20 is compatible with other conventional and synthetic engine oils. Mixing AMSOIL diesel oils with other oils, though, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and decrease 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 synthetic diesel oils.
In gasoline-fueled vehicles, AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oil is recommended for up to 12,000 miles/one year oil change intervals, or longer when recommended in owner's manuals or indicated by electronic oil life monitoring systems. Change the oil filter at every oil change regardless of filter brand.
AMSOIL Oil Filters stop smaller particles, flow more oil and last longer than regular filters. For best performance, use AMSOIL Oil Filters.
