Prepare For Winter With AMSOIL Products
When winter approaches and it’s time to store the lawnmower and roll out the snowblower, AMSOIL has a wealth of products that can help. Here’s just a few that will help keep your vehicles and equipment protected.
Gasoline can break down in as little as 30 days. Oxygen, humidity, heat and other factors cause gas to change over time. Varnish, gums and other debris can form, which can clog the tiny fuel passages in the carburetor of your small engine and stick the float, preventing it from starting in the spring.
AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer disrupts the chemical chain reaction that causes gas to oxidize and form varnish and gums. It keeps fuel fresh up to 12 months. It also fights corrosion and provides stability that Sea Foam Motor Treatment® can’t match, helping maintain startability and protect against the formation of varnish and gum.1
Adding a winter fuel additive to diesel fuel provides an additional level of protection against shifts in temperature and the corresponding expenses and hassles of diesel fuel gelling and plugging the fuel filter.
In independent testing, AMSOIL Diesel All-In-One repeatedly flowed at temperatures up to 32ºF colder than Howes Lubricator Diesel Treat.2 That is a substantial difference in performance when it matters most.
Engine Fogging Oil
Keeping your prized classic out of the elements this winter? If you aren’t in a position to conduct routine starts or short drives, you’ll need something to prevent surface rust from forming inside the cylinders and combustion chamber. A good coat of AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil sprayed into the cylinders will do the trick.
Change It Up
Engine operation produces combustion by-products, such as moisture and acids. Those harmful by-products can cause problems if they’re left in your engine during storage. Moisture can lead to rust formation on engine parts. Once rust starts to form, it doesn’t stop. When you fire up the engine in the spring, rust particles can flake off into the oil and scour bearings and other parts during operation, leading to wear.
If you’re winterizing your motorcycle, consider installing AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil. It contains rust inhibitors for maximum protection all season.
