Formula 4-Stroke® Power Sports
0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil (pdf file, click here)

Formulated for Top ATV and Snowmobile Performance

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil is specially
formulated for ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles and other powersports applications.
Its broad viscosity range and wax-free formulation make it excellent
for use in both hot and cold temperature extremes. As an SAE
40-weight motor oil, AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Oil provides
outstanding protection for hot-operating engines, while its 0W rating and
-60°F pour point ensure easy cranking, excellent cold-weather starting
and quick post-startup protection. Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Oil
is an extreme-temperature lubricant that provides outstanding performance
in high-performance, recreational or work/utility engines.

Resists Heat and Thermal Breakdown

AMSOIL engineered Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil to withstand the high temperatures of recreational engines. It effectively resists oxidation and oil vaporization to help prevent carbon/varnish formation, control oil consumption and minimize exhaust emissions. It also controls oil thickening, promoting improved fuel economy, and it helps keep engines clean for peak operating effciency.

Excellent For Transmissions

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Oil is wet-clutch compatible and contains no friction modifers, making it ideal for both two- and four-stroke ATV transmissions. The friction-modifer-free formulation is designed to prevent clutch slippage, helping deliver maximum torque and power to the wheels – a critical feature for towing or high-horsepower engines. It meets the frictional requirements of JASO MA/MA2 and ISO-L-EMA2.

Superior Wear Protection

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Oil is formulated with high levels of anti- wear additives that provide excellent protection for pistons, bearings and gears in transmission-containing units. Its shear-stable, SAE 40 viscosity delivers a thick lubricating flm for an extra margin of protection in hard-working engines.

Anti-Foam

Churning occurs in high-RPM engines that can cause oil to foam, depleting its lubricating abilities and increasing heat and wear. AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Oil controls foam, promoting cooler engine operation and reduced wear.

Special Additives

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil contains robust dispersant/detergent additives that effectively neutralize the high levels of acids and combustion by-products prone to small engines. It is anti-rust fortifed for superior rust prevention, which is especially important in seasonally or infrequently used powersports equipment.

COMPATIBILITY

AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce its performance benefts. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.

SERVICE LIFE

Follow the equipment manufacturer’s recommended drain intervals.
