Which AMSOIL Products Are Recommended
For Your Vehicles?
Stored Equipment Requires Preparation
to Ensure Its Protected
corrosion and degraded fuel can attack unprepared equipment
Technical Product Manager,
With winter approaching,
many of you will be putting equipment such as motorcycles,
lawnmowers and personal watercraft into storage. Though it
can be tempting to park it out of sight after the final use
and hope it starts again next season, such action (or inaction)
can have serious consequences. Engines left unprepared for
storage can suffer from fuel degradation, condensation and
corrosion. The results can lead to poor performance, costly
repairs or replacement, so it makes sense (and cents) to prepare
equipment for the off-season so its protected and ready for
springtime use. Even if you live in a moderate winter climate, extended periods of non-use warrant
following these winterizing strategies.
1) Wash and dry
- Road contaminants can permanently stain and corrode paint
2) Change oil -
Combustion and its by-products cause oxidation, which can
be detrimental to internal engine components. Fresh oil protects
engines against such unseen damage.
3) Stabilize fuel
- Gasoline can begin to degrade in as little as 30 days, forming
gums and deposits on engine components. Treating it with AMSOIL
Gasoline Stabilizer can prevent degradation and carburetor
and injector problems.
4) Remove battery
- If storing for an extended period, remove the battery or
connect a float charger to keep it at full capacity without
risk of damage from overcharging.
5) Lift off ground
- Use a stand or ramp to prevent flat spots.
6) Cover - Cover
the motorcycle to protect it from light and dirt.
Engines (Two- and Four-Stroke)
1) Stabilize fuel
with AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer after the final use if storing
four months or longer.
fuel stabilization for periods less than four months. No Gasoline
Stabilizer is required if you've been using Quickshot and
the engine will be stored fewer than four months
2) Change lower
unit oil - If any water has invaded the lower unit over the
summer and it's left there during storage, rust can form on
bearings and the lower unit gears can degrade.
3) Change oil and
filter (in four-stroke engines) - Most four-stroke engines
use a separate spin-on filter. Change the oil and filter for
protection against oxidation, rust and corrosion acids from
4) Fog engine -
AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil gives engine components an extra
protective barrier against condensation and dry starts.
1) Stabilize fuel
during last use with AMSOIL Quickshot or Gasoline Stabilizer.
2) Wash and dry
3) Flush with storage
antifreeze if the PWC is stored in subfreezing temperatures.
4) Flush with freshwater
if the PWC is used in saltwater.
5) Fog engine with
AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil (if applicable).
6) Remove battery
and store it off the ground in a warm, dry place.
7) Leave the seat
open slightly, cover the PWC and store indoors (preferably).
8) If storing outside,
cover the PWC but not so tightly that it restricts air flow.
and Handheld Equipment
1) Stabilize fuel
with AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer or AMSOIL Quickshot.
2) Change oil and
filter (on four-stroke engines) at least once a year.
3) Fog engine with
AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil (if applicable) - This is a good
idea for four-stroke engines, too, but fogging is a must for
two-stroke engines if they are being stored for 30 days or
4) Wash off grass,
dirt, wood chips, etc.
5) Apply AMSOIL
MP Metal Protector to exposed metal parts to prevent rust.
6) Equipment is
best stored indoors. If left outside, protect it with a cover.
simple steps can keep your equipment in peak operating condition,
even when it's not in use for several months. An hour or two
of preventive maintenance now means next spring you'll be
spending more time on the road, on the water or in the yard
instead of in the shed tearing apart dirty carburetors. Published,

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
