AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic Oil is a 2-cycle oil that is made with one thing in mind: outperform all other 2-cycle oils for snowmobiles, ATVs, dirt bikes, and PWCs.  Period.  In fact, this has always been the goal for all of AMSOIL's products, but this one is special.  It's special because AMSOIL knows this product holds a place in the hearts of powersports enthusiasts world-wide.  Just go to any big snowmobile race in the USA and you will see AMSOIL being used everywhere.  Take a look at the decals and you'll see AMSOIL's name all over.  Or just ask the 4-time Eagle River Snowmobile World Champion (2011, 2006, 2003, 2002) PJ Wanderscheid what brand of synthetic snowmobile oil he uses.  He will tell you AMSOIL.  You can also ask one of the many people who've provided AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® Oil Reviews.

Now, I'm not telling you to go and race professionally using AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® oil.  If you're going to open the throttle every possible chance you get, switch on over to the AMSOIL DOMINATOR® 2-Cycle Oil page and grab some of that.  But if you enjoy pushing your machine to the edge repeatedly during all-day, aggressive riding sessions, then this is the synthetic 2-cycle oil for you.

So what specifically does AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® oil do for you?

What about the anti-scuff/anti-wear properties of AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® oil?  As 2-cycle engines have evolved, they have consistenly required leaner and leaner gas-to-oil mixtures.  Using less oil in the gas means there is more opportunity for metal engine components to come into contact with other metal engine parts.  However, AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® uses proprietary, high molecular weight components that resist the burn-off process of an engine and more of the oil is able to lubricate the engine parts that are supposed to be lubricated.

Deposit Control - Protects Power Exhaust Valves
One of the more important aspects of the oil is that it is proven to protect your snowmobile's Power Exhaust Valves.  AMSOIL performed a field study on a 2011 Polaris® 800 Assault snowmobile and had it used for 2 full seasons.  After the 1,300 miles (yes, that is probably more than most of us ride our sleds in 2 years!) of riding, the exhaust power valves showed very limited deposits which allowed continuous high-performance operation.

Proven Protection for Rotax® E-TEC® Engines
AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® oil was also tested using in a standard ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) test on the Rotax® E-TEC® Engine and the oil performed brilliantly (see the published results here).  The reason I mention that ASTM tests were used is because anyone could look up the ASTM test, perform it, and if AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® oil did not perform as our test results show then they could debunk our claim - but it has never been debunked because they found the same results!  So you should have absolutely no reservations about using it in these engines.

Warranty Secure™
Your factory warranty will remain intact using AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® oil.  AMSOIL's Warranty Secure™ pledge also means that when using AMSOIL products adorned with this symbol, your components are protected by the AMSOIL Limited Warranty (G1363).  For more details, click here.

So when you get out and ride this winter, make sure to go for the best.  Make sure that you don't compromise your engine's power and protection.  Make sure that you give yourself the best chance your engine will perform when it needs to and you don't break down.  I recommend AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® oil.
