Revamped AMSOIL Marine Product Line Keeps You On The Water
Much like automotive engines, marine motors are becoming more advanced and tougher on oil. Four-stroke motors are becoming lighter and produce more low-end torque than before. They’ve largely closed the performance gap on two-stroke motors. In fact, sales of four-stroke motors are on the rise, while two-stroke sales have declined.

Demanding Operating Conditions

Marine motors are characterized by high-rpm operation that can shear the molecular structure of oil and reduce its ability to protect against wear. On average, a marine motor propelling a boat 30 mph operates at 5,000 rpm, while an automotive engine at 60 mph operates around 2,000 rpm. The added heat and stress invite wear and deposits. Heavy deposits can cause piston rings to stick. Stuck rings lead to compression loss, which reduces power. Stuck rings can also lead to catastrophic piston scuffing.

The marine operating environment creates additional challenges for oil. Marine motors are constantly exposed to humid air. The moisture the motor ingests increases the likelihood of corrosion compared to automotive engines. Water-cooled marine motors also run at lower temperatures than air-cooled engines, so moisture in the oil doesn’t evaporate as readily. Plus, when the motor is shut down for the day, moist air continues to enter the engine as it cools, increasing the risk for corrosion, especially if the oil doesn’t contain anti-corrosion inhibitors.

Marine-Specific Four-Stroke Formulations

AMSOIL 10W-30 and 10W-40 Synthetic Marine Engine Oil and new AMSOIL 25W-40 Synthetic-Blend Marine Engine Oil are shear-stable formulations that deliver maximum wear protection in four-stroke marine applications. They are formulated with advanced additives to guard against corrosion common to marine environments.

Marine-Specific Two-Stroke Formulations

AMSOIL synthetic two-stoke marine oils provide the same great benefits as always, including outstanding wear protection and low smoke. AMSOIL HP Marine® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is excellent in modern direct-fuel-injected (DFI) motors that generate increased heat and friction compared to their predecessors. It provides increased lubricity for reduced wear during normal and lean-mix operation. In field testing, HP Marine completely prevented piston skirt and cylinder bore scuffing (see http://www.amsoil.com/proof for details).

AMSOIL Synthetic 2-Stroke Injector Oil protects against wear and piston scuffing while providing the added benefit of year-round use as a snowmobile oil.

For pre-mix applications, AMSOIL Outboard 100:1 Pre-Mix Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil contains a heavy dose of low-temperature dispersant additives that excel at reducing varnish, carbon and deposit formation in water-cooled motors. Its low-smoke, low-odor, low-toxicity properties produce fewer emissions at 100:1 mix ratios than oils mixed at 50:1, benefitting operators and the environment.

AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube protects lower units from wear, even when contaminated with up to 10 percent water.
Synthetic Marine Oil Products 
The introduction of the world’s first synthetic motor oil to meet American Petroleum Institute service requirements in 1972 set all-new standards for motor oil quality. AMSOIL synthetic motor oil outperformed conventional petroleum motor oils on all counts. It was clear from the start that this innovative product would play a major role in engine performance and engine life.As the technology used in today’s marine applications has evolved, AMSOIL has remained ahead of the curve in performance and protection with products formulated to deliver clean engine performance and control harmful deposits, wear and rust. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants are engineered to protect your watercraft in all conditions so you can remain carefree and on the water longer.
AMSOIL 10W-30 & 10W-40 Synthetic Marine Engine Oil

For use in 4-stroke gasoline fueled engines in marine applications. Offers unsurpassed wear protection, viscosity stability, low volatility and excellent rust protection. NMMA FC-W approved and "warranty certified". For use in 4-stroke outboard and marine inboard engines. Also excellent for personal watercraft.
25W-40 Synthetic Blend Marine Engine Oil


Engine performance and reliability are key to a successful day fishing or boating. High-rpm operation and constant exposure to water, however, invite engine wear and formation of rust and corrosion, reducing engine performance and life. AMSOIL 25W-40 Synthetic Blend Marine Engine Oil guards against wear while delivering excellent protection against rust and corrosion. It is Warranty Secure® and will not void your marine engine’s warranty.
 Outboard 100:1 Pre-Mix Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil


Designed for pre-mix applications as lean as 100:1 ratios or richer. Improves throttle response and lowers or eliminates smoke. Minimizes deposit formation and lowers emissions. Performance emphasis on the cooler operations of water-cooled motors.


 HP Marine Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil


Excellent for Evinrude® E-TEC™ factory-lean setting (replaces Evinrude XD100™ 2-Cycle Oil). Helps prevent deposits, protects against wear, has low smoke, protects against rust and has low aquatic toxicity. Superior performance as an injection oil or at 50:1 pre-mix.
AMSOIL Warranty

AMSOIL guarantees the performance of its products, so you can be confident they perform as advertised. AMSOIL introduced the world’s first API-qualified synthetic motor oil and has since introduced a full line of industry firsts. For more than 40 years, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have proven themselves in the lab, on the racetrack and on the highway.
