AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil delivers extraordinary lubrication in both diesel and gasoline engines found in commercial, fleet and personal vehicles. By combining the industry's premier synthetic technology with AMSOIL premium additives, AMSOIL Series 3000 exceeds the higher performance demands of modern engines, including those with turbochargers. It withstands the stress of higher heat, higher acid levels and excessive soot-loading found in exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)-equipped engines. AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil consistently outperforms conventional and synthetic diesel oils for long-lasting performance and protection.
AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world's first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, The First in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your engine.
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system deliver maximum engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals, reducing vehicle maintenance and waste oil disposal costs.
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil is energy efficient for reduced fuel costs. Its low viscosity minimizes "drag" associated with high-viscosity oils, allowing the engine to operate more freely, maximizing power and fuel economy.
Even under high temperatures and pressures, AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil's superior film strength and anti-wear additives help prevent metal-to-metal contact. AMSOIL Series 3000 reduces ring wear, cylinder bore polishing, oil consumption and valve train wear for improved engine life and lower maintenance costs.
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil is heavily fortified with detergent/dispersant additives and is naturally resistant to soot. It is designed to keep soot particles suspended independently and prevent them from attaching together to form larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is controlled.
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil effectively reduces high-temperature volatility (evaporation), outperforming conventional oils. Because less oil vapor passes into the combustion chamber, oil consumption and emissions are reduced. Additionally, lower volatility helps AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection and excellent fuel economy.
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown, oxidation and sludge formation better than conventional oils. And unlike conventional petroleum oils, AMSOIL Series 3000 contains no wax. It stays fluid down to -50°C (-58°F) for improved cold-temperature oil flow, reduced bearing wear and easier starting.
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in unmodified, mechanically-sound vehicles or equipment as follows:
Diesel Engine Service
• Three times (3X) OEM* recommendation, not to exceed 50,000 miles/600 hours or one year, whichever comes first. Drain intervals may be extended further with oil analysis.
Gasoline Engine Service
• Normal Service - Up to 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
• Severe Service - Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
*Operating conditions and drain intervals for severe and normal service are defined by the OEM. Refer to your owner's manual.
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.
Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Re: update after 9k miles
Chip, thank you for confirming the outstanding performance of Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy-Duty Diesel Oil, and that it provides the driver the security of knowing their engine is going to provide trouble-free operation mile after mile. Based on the oil analysis, it is still fit for use.Replied by Tech Admin
Re: the best multipurpose oil
Hi Ryan, series 3000 HDD is a high performance, multipurpose oil, excellent for a wide range of older & off road vehicles and equipments (gas & diesel) but it is not suitable for 2007 & up diesels equipped with diesel particulate filter (use a CJ-4 spec Amsoil).Replied by Tech Admin
Also do not use HDD on modern vehicles that require oils with certain specs (as described by the manufacturer), which HDD may not cover.
