  • Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil develops a strong fluid film that keeps metal surfaces separated while its robust anti-wear additives further reduce wear in metal-to-metal contact regions for maximum engine life. The Sequence IVA Engine Test, which must be passed to meet the API SN PLUS specification, simulates extended periods of stop-and-go driving. For 100 hours, the test engine cycles between 50 minutes of idling and 10 minutes of elevated rpm – conditions that encourage engine wear. The camshaft is then measured for wear in 84 locations and an average score is determined. We used Signature Series 0W-20, the lightest viscosity in the line, to further increase the severity of the test. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provided 75 percent more engine protection against horsepower loss and wear¹ than required by the industry standard, extending the life of vital components like pistons and cams.

  • We armed Signature Series with an advanced detergent system that protects against harmful deposits and low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI). Most new engines feature gasoline direct injection (GDI), often combined with a turbocharger to boost power and improve fuel economy. These new technologies, when combined with a poorly formulated motor oil, promote LSPI and threaten engine operation. LSPI is the spontaneous ignition of the fuel/air mixture prior to spark-triggered ignition. It occurs in today’s advanced engines and is much more destructive than typical pre-ignition. A properly formulated motor oil is critical for protecting your engine. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like GM* have addressed the issue by designing tests to determine a motor oil’s ability to prevent LSPI. Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil achieved 100 percent protection against LSPI2 in the engine test required by the GM dexos1* Gen 2 specification – zero occurrences were recorded throughout five consecutive tests.

  • Our unique synthetic formulation is inherently stable to resist oxidation and neutralize acids. Signature Series Motor Oil provides outstanding protection against deposits common to high-temperature engine environments. The tremendous heat and stress turbos create can cause some oils to break down and form harmful bearing deposits through a process known as turbo coking. Over time, turbos can suffer reduced performance or fail altogether. We challenged Signature Series to the GM Turbo Coking Test, which consists of 2,000 cycles of extreme heat soaks. An oil must limit the temperature change within the turbocharger to 13 percent or less to pass the test. Signature Series limited the temperature increase to only 3.6 percent, protecting the turbocharger 72 percent better than required3 by the GM dexos1 Gen 2 specification. 

    Signature Series controlled heat and minimized performancerobbing deposits on the turbobearing and shaft surfaces.

  • AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil has 50 percent more detergents4 to help keep oil passages clean and promote oil circulation. Engine failures due to sludge are often caused by a plugged oil pick-up tube screen – the motor is effectively starved of oil. The Sequence VG Engine Test measures an oil’s ability to prevent sludge. During the test, a Ford* 4.6L engine is subjected to sludge-inducing conditions for 216 hours. The industry standard allows for 10 percent blockage before the motor oil fails the test. Signature Series produced a screen virtually free from sludge (see image). Its detergent and dispersant additives are so effective, Signature Series provides 90 percent better protection against sludge.5

  • Dedicated engine builders and mechanics put in long hours honing their craft. These architects of powerful, highperformance engines turn to Signature Series to protect their passion. “When we use AMSOIL, I don’t worry about a film breakdown or an oil breakdown – and the oil pressure is always consistent. We’ve tested oils back-to-back on the dyno in our shop and we’re always able to make more power with AMSOIL.” Brett Bowers, Professional Engine Builder.

  • AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provides reserve protection, allowing you to go longer between oil changes if you choose – up to 25,000 miles (40,200 km), 700 hours of operation or one year, whichever comes first (see back page for details). Our unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system are inherently stable to resist oxidation and neutralize acids over longer periods. Signature Series is designed to deliver outstanding engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals – guaranteed. It provides peace of mind so you can fit oil changes into your schedule.

  • The extreme durability of Signature Series Motor Oil helps your engine run stronger, for longer. We installed Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil in a Ford* F-150* with a new 3.5L Ecoboost* engine to test its ability to protect turbocharged direct-injection (TDGI) engines from torque and horsepower loss during extended drain intervals up to 25,000 miles (40,200 km). Power sweeps were done at the beginning and end of the test to evaluate horsepower and torque retention. As the graph shows, Signature Series helped maintain engine performance throughout the 100,000-mile (160,934 km) test.

  • Signature Series has a uniform molecular structure that limits evaporation and keeps it where it’s needed most – protecting your engine. Volatility (burn-off) occurs when oil gets hot, causing lighter molecules to burn off or evaporate. This leads to oil thickening, additive imbalance, higher emissions and oil consumption. The NOACK Volatility test is the industry standard for evaluating motor oil hightemperature evaporation. It measures the percentage of burn-off after a motor oil is placed under constant airflow at 482ºF (250ºC) for 1 hour. A lower number indicates a better resistance to evaporation. Signature Series falls far below the API limit for volatility, reducing the need for frequent oil top-offs and limiting vehicle emissions.

    Lower number = less volatility
  • Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil does not contain paraffins (wax) and stays fluid in temperatures of -58ºF (-50ºC) and lower. Extreme cold causes other motor oils to thicken, starving vital moving parts of lubrication, accelerating wear and even preventing vehicles from starting. Signature Series provides 66 percent better cold-temperature performance for easier starting, better fuel economy, improved oil flow (as seen below) and reduced wear. 


  • We formulated Signature Series with superior thermal durability that resists breakdown and keeps pistons clean. The Sequence IIIH Test uses the Chrysler* 3.6L Pentastar* engine to evaluate a motor oil’s ability to resist heat and keep pistons clean. The test is conducted with oil temperatures of 304ºF (151ºC), much hotter than normal operation, to accelerate oil thickening and deposits. A single-length 90- hour test didn’t even challenge Signature Series. Its viscosity was like that of new oil, and the pistons were still nearly spotless. To really test the oil, we told the lab to reassemble the engine and run the test again using the same oil. Even after doubling the length of the industry-standard test, the oil limited oil thickening to well under the allowable threshold while delivering 40 percent cleaner pistons than required by the standard.6



    Even after doubling the length of the standard test, Signature Series maintained viscosity and minimized performancerobbing piston deposits for a clean, long-lasting engine.
