“Extended Drain Intervals” is one of the primary selling points for any AMSOIL Dealer.  You promote the extended drain intervals of AMSOIL products to your customers every day.  With that in mind, AMSOIL has been quick to announce recent changes made to the drain interval recommendations of our diesel oils.

In September AMSOIL announced the change to 3X OEM for HDD, AME and ACD to match DME and DEO.  At that time AMSOIL also announced the adjustment in the recommendation for DEO and DME to the OEM recommendation in the Cat C13 and C15 engines. Now AMSOIL is announcing that the DEO and DME recommendations have been adjusted to the OEM recommendation in 2007 and newer Ford Dodge and GM/GMC applications.  (Please see the attached document for the latest specific drain interval recommendations for each of our diesel products.)

AMSOIL encourages you to become familiar with these updated diesel oil drain intervals.
