AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (ACD)
Outperforms Conventional Diesel Oils
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Diesel Oil (ACD) is formulated with premium synthetic base oils that exceed both
10W-30 multi-grade and SAE 30 straight-grade viscosity requirements for outstanding performance in modern and older
diesel engines. Unlike conventional SAE 30 motor oils, AMSOIL ACD has a naturally high viscosity index and does not
contain paraffin (wax). It has a -36°F pour point and qualifies for SAE 10W, making it an "all season"
multi-grade lubricant with a wide operating temperature range. AMSOIL ACD is formulated without viscosity index
improvers (VI). This shear stable formulation stops viscosity loss and associated bearing and cylinder bore wear.
AMSOIL ACD contains premium additives with a high 12 TBN to neutralize acids from blow-by, exhaust gas recirculation
(EGR) and high sulfur diesel fuels. It protects against damaging piston deposits, ring sticking and sludge.
AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world's first API qualified synthetic motor oil back in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, The First in Synthetics®, to do the best job protecting your equipment.
Where these viscosity grades are specified, AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Diesel Oil (ACD) provides outstanding performance as a straight-grade SAE 30 for older two- and four-stroke diesels and as a multi-grade SAE 10W-30 in modern four-stroke diesels as well as gasoline engines. AMSOIL ACD is ideal for use in a wide variety of light and heavy-duty applications, including agriculture, off-road construction, trucking, mining, industrial (pumps and generators) and personal automotive or commercial transportation. It is recommended for use with low or high sulfur diesel fuels in standard, turbocharged or supercharged engines, all off-road engines and pre-2007 on-road engines.
- SAE 10W-30 performance without VI improvers
- Cost-effective replacement for conventional oils
- Excellent shear stability
- Outstanding wear protection
- Superior protection over a broad range of operating temperatures
- Extended service life with oil analysis
AMSOIL ACD is recommended for diesel engines and other applications requiring any of the listed worldwide specifications and gasoline engines requiring API SL, SJ, SH... or ACEA A3.
- API CI-4+/CH-4/CG-4/SL
- API CF/CE/CD/CC
- API CF-2/CD-II
- Global DHD-1
- ACEA A3/B3, E2, E3, E5
- JASO DH-1
- Mack EO-M+, EO-N Premium Plus '03
- Detroit Diesel Power Guard 93K214
- Caterpillar ECF-1-a, ECF-2
- Cummins CES 20076/20077/20078 (current), 20071/20072 (older)
- Volvo VDS3/VDS2
- Mercedes Benz 228.1/228.3/229.1
- MAN 271/3275

AMSOIL ACD is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils, however, mixing AMSOIL ACD with other oils will shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where AMSOIL ACD has been mixed with another product. Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.
AMSOIL Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in unmodified1, mechanically sound2 vehicles or equipment as follows:
- Normal Service3 - Up to 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
- Severe Service4 - Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
- In gasoline engines, oil drain intervals may be extended up to two times (2X) the OEM recommended drain interval (not to exceed 15,000 miles without oil analysis) or one year, whichever comes first.
AMSOIL Ea and Donaldson Endurance full flow oil filters are designed
for extended drain intervals. They stop smaller particles, have less restriction and last longer than regular
filters. For best performance, use AMSOIL Ea or Donaldson Endurance oil filters.
AMSOIL Ea By-pass oil filters are specialized for the removal of small, wear-causing dirt particles, thereby extending engine life. AMSOIL encourages using an AMSOIL Ea By-pass filter system for maximum engine and oil life.

1 Engines operating under modified conditions are excluded from extended drain recommendations.
Examples include the use of performance computer chips; non-OEM approved exhaust, fuel or air induction
systems; and the use of fuels other than those recommended for normal operation by the manufacturers.
2 Mechanically sound engines are in good working condition and do not, for example, leak oil or consume excessive amounts, are not worn out, do not overheat, do not leak anti-freeze and have properly working emission control systems. AMSOIL recommends repairing malfunctioning engines prior to the installation of AMSOIL synthetic oils.
3 Personal vehicles frequently traveling greater than 10 miles (16 km) at a time and not operating under severe service.
4 Turbo or supercharged vehicles, commercial or fleet vehicles, excessive engine idling, first and subsequent use of AMSOIL in vehicles with over 100,000 miles, daily short trip driving less than 10 miles (16km), frequent towing, plowing, hauling or dusty condition driving.
