AMSOIL Marine Engine Oil


Most anglers work full-time and have precious little time for fishing. To maximize their time on the water, they need lubricants that protect their motors from wear despite challenging operating conditions. Much like automotive engines, marine motors are becoming more advanced and tougher on oil. Four-stroke motors are becoming lighter and produce more low-end torque than before. They’ve largely closed the performance gap on two-stroke motors. In fact, sales of four-stroke motors are on the rise, while two-stroke sales have declined.

Demanding Operating Conditions
Marine motors are characterized by high-rpm operation that can shear the molecular structure of oil and reduce its ability to protect against wear. On average, a marine motor propelling a boat 30 mph operates at 5,000 rpm,while an automotive engine at 60 mph operates around 2,000 rpm. The added heat and stress invite wear and deposits. Heavy deposits can cause piston rings to stick. Stuck rings lead to compression loss, which reduces power. Stuck rings can also lead to catastrophic piston scuffing.

The marine operating environment creates additional challenges for oil. Marine motors are constantly exposed to humid air. The moisture the motor ingests increases the likelihood of corrosion compared to automotive engines. Water-cooled marine motors also run at lower temperatures than air-cooled engines, so moisture in the oil doesn’t evaporate as readily. Plus, when the motor is shut down for the day, moist air continues to enter the engine as it cools, increasing the risk for corrosion, especially if the oil doesn’t contain anti-corrosion inhibitors.

Why AMSOIL? | The introduction of the world’s first synthetic motor oil to meet American Petroleum Institute service requirements in 1972 set all-new standards for motor oil quality. AMSOIL synthetic motor oil outperformed conventional petroleum motor oils on all counts. It was clear from the start that this innovative product would play a major role in engine performance and engine life.

As the technology used in today’s marine applications has evolved, AMSOIL has remained ahead of the curve in performance and protection with products formulated to deliver clean engine performance and control harmful deposits, wear and rust. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants are engineered to protect your watercraft in all conditions so you can remain carefree and on the water longer.

Premium Protection for Marine Applications

Boating and fishing are popular activities for people across the nation, with the 2013 Special Report on Fishing and Boating indicating that 47 million Americans went fishing in 2012, 46.8 million participated in a boating activity and 21.2 million owned a boat.

Boat Engine Options

Boat applications can be broken down into four primary methods of propulsion. Available in both two- and four-stroke designs, outboard motors are self-contained units (engine, gearbox and propeller/jet drive) that mount outside the hull of the boat; inboard motors are enclosed within the hull; sterndrive (inboard/outboard) designs situate the engine forward of the transom, with the drive unit outside the hull; and jet motors propel the boat by drawing water into a pump and ejecting it out the stern. According to the 2013 Special Report on Fishing and Boating, 53.1 percent of boats are powered by outboard motors, while 16 percent feature inboard motors, 15 percent have sterndrive motors, 3.3 percent have jet motors and 12.7 percent are not motorized.

AMSOIL Products for Marine Applications

A successful day fishing or boating hinges on the reliability of marine engines. Deposits and wear from high-rpm operation and all-day trolling can limit performance and even shorten engine life, especially in newer engines that run hotter and produce more power. AMSOIL synthetic marine lubricants, including Formula 4-Stroke® Marine Synthetic Motor Oil (WCT, WCF) and HP Marine™ Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil (HPM), are formulated to control harmful deposits and wear in outboard, inboard and sterndrive motors. AMSOIL products are ideal for boaters because they effectively reduce time and money spent on maintenance and increase fuel economy. In fact, research reveals maintenance and fuel costs are foremost on the minds of boaters. The top three reasons ex-boaters cited for giving up their boats are cost of maintenance/ storage (41.1%), cost of fuel (21.5%) and time constraints (20.6%).

AMSOIL Products for Tow Vehicles and Trailers

Don’t forget about tow vehicles and trailers. AMSOIL offers not only premium synthetic marine oils for boat motors, but AMSOIL synthetic motor oils, diesel oils and drivetrain fluids for tow vehicles and Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease (GWR) for trailers. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils and diesel oils help reduce maintenance and downtime and extend drain intervals, allowing increased time on the water.

Stuck rings lead to compression loss, which reduces power.
