Engine Fogging Oil

As fall turns to winter, customers in many parts of the country begin placing summer work and recreational equipment; including motorcycles, boats, lawnmowers, construction and farm equipment; into winter storage. Ensure customers’ stored equipment is protected throughout the winter season and in top condition when it is put back into service in the spring. Engine fogging oil helps protect your equipment.

AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil

Fluctuations in ambient temperatures can cause water vapor to form condensate within stored engines. When this condensate comes into direct contact with steel
and iron components, it forms surface corrosion on cylinder liners, piston rings, anti-friction bearings and steel/
iron contact surfaces on rotational seals. Long periods of storage can also dry out cylinders, often resulting in permanent damage when the equipment is taken out
of storage and dry-started. Most two- and four-stroke motor oils are formulated to have an affinity to engine component surfaces, acting as a barrier that keeps condensate from contacting engine components and forming corrosion.
However, the effectiveness of motor oil in this area diminishes with time.


AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil (FOG)

offers superior film retention, providing long-term
protection against corrosion and dry starts, etending engine life and reducing operating expenses. Amsoil engine fogging oil is an aerosol spray formulation offers easy and clean application, while
reaching more components and offering complete distribution of the oil, something especially beneficial in applications with horizontal cylinder orientation, such as outboard
motors. Consult equipment owner’s manual for application directions.

AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer

Gasoline is not formulated for long-term storage and can start to degrade in as little as 60 days, leading to varnish and sludge deposits that clog injectors, fuel lines and carburetors; stick oats; and cause poor engine performance, starting problems, increased maintenance expenses and decreased equipment life. It is difficult to drain all of the fuel from equipment before storage, and doing so would expose the to other problems, including the formation
of rust and corrosion on the bare metal in the tank and fuel system and the drying and cracking of gaskets and seals.
Some fuels are pre-treated with oxidation inhibitors that allow them to be stored for short periods without forming excessive deposits, while other fuels have no inhibitors at all. AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer (AST) reduces
the oxidation that occurs when fuel is stored for extended periods, improving performance, extending equipment life
and decreasing maintenance expenses.

Amsoil Diesel Concentrate

Gelled #2 diesel fuel has always been a problem in many parts of North America. Amsoil diesel concentrate . The problem has become even worse with the advent of biodiesel, which gels at an even higher temp than regular diesel. That is why your diesel customers need Diesel Concentrate plus Cold Flow Improver (DFC). Diesel Concentrate plus Cold Flow Improver is a premium, year-round fuel additive that provides improved efficiency, maximum cold-weather performance and peace of mind for truckers hauling across northern climates in the winter months.

Just to be safe, every diesel owner should keep a bottle of AMSOIL Diesel Recovery (DRC) on hand for emergency situations when temps drop steeply and the truck’s fuel has not been treated with Diesel Concentrate plus Cold Flow Improver. Diesel Recovery quickly and effectively dissolves crystals that form when diesel fuel surpasses its cloud point. Amsoil Diesel Concentrate.

Amsoil diesel Plus Cold Flow Improver is formulated with excellent detergency properties to help keep injectors, rings, piston crowns and the fuel pump lubricated, plus lowers the cold flow filter plugging point (CFPP) by as much as 34 F (19 C) in ultra-low sulfur diesel.
Total system cleaner and lubricity improver for all types of diesel engines. Improves performance and longevity of diesel engines while reducing deposits, black smoke and emissions. Improves fuel economy by cleaning dirty injectors. Restores horsepower. Designed for heavy-duty diesel engines.


One 16-oz. bottle of AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver treats 40 gallons of fuel. Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver will show no signs of solidifying in its concentrated state in the bottle until the temperature reaches -22°F (-30°C). It will only freeze in its concentrated state, and AMSOIL recommends storing it at temperatures above 0°F (-18°C). If Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver is allowed to freeze in the bottle it can be thawed and used. When mixed with diesel fuel, Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver effectively improves diesel fuel cold-temperature properties. It is important to treat fuel before it has reached its cloud point as Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver will not dissolve wax crystals which have already formed in the fuel.

AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver meets federal regulations for ULSD fuel. It complies with federal low-sulfur content requirements for use in diesel motor vehicles and non-road engines. While Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver is formulated specifically for ULSD fuel, it also performs well with non-ULSD fuels, including biodiesel.

AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver is specifically formulated to improve the lubrication of fuel system components, improve fuel flow, help maintain fuel integrity and prevent the fuel filter and injectors from clogging. Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver is recommended for diesel-powered vehicles, home heating oil and kerosene heating systems.

As the temperature drops, the wax naturally found in diesel fuel begins to form crystals. The point at which wax crystals form is known as the cloud point. These wax crystals eventually clog the fuel filter and starve the engine of fuel, preventing it from starting. While low quality fuels may form wax crystals in temperatures as warm as 40°F (4°C), most fuels have a cloud point near 32°F (0°C). The point at which the wax crystals clog the fuel filter is known as the cold filter-plugging point (CFPP). AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver lowers the CFPP by as much as 34°F (19°C) in ULSD.

It also reduces the pour-point temperature of treated diesel fuel, providing better fuel delivery to the injectors during cold weather. It is formulated with a jet-fuel-type deicer that disperses water to control ice formation in all sections of the fuel system. Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver minimizes the need for the use of #1 diesel fuel, enabling better fuel economy, performance and lubricity.

It is important to distinguish between CFPP and pour point. Many competitors make great claims regarding pour point, leading consumers to believe their products are superior when they actually have an inferior CFPP. Once fuel surpasses its cloud point, the wax crystals begin to clog the fuel filter. The CFPP temperature is a more important characteristic than pour point because the engine will not run if fuel cannot pass through the fuel filter.

One traditional solution to cold weather problems in diesel engines is the use of #1 diesel fuel, which is diesel fuel diluted with kerosene. While #1 diesel fuel has an advantage in low-temperature operability, there are also several disadvantages. The energy content of #1 diesel fuel is about 95 percent of that of #2 diesel fuel, resulting in reduced fuel economy and less horsepower. In addition, the kerosene used in #1 diesel fuel provides less lubrication for the fuel pump and fuel distributor, increasing the likelihood for wear on these critical components. AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate Plus Cold Flow Improver minimizes the need for blending standard #2 diesel fuel with lower-quality #1 diesel fuel, helping to maintain fuel economy and keep engines functioning normally.

A Federal Court Judge has denied a Harley Davidson motion to dismiss Harley bikers’ claims for fraudulent and unfair business practices, violations of Consumers Legal Remedies Act (CLRA), and unjust enrichment. A class action lawsuit may now go forward against Harley Davidson alleging certain Harley motorcycle engines produce severe, and excessive heat causing burn injuries and clothing to catch on fire.

Harley Davidson Sued

Last week, a federal judge ruled that a class action lawsuit against Harley Davidson could go forward, siding with four bikers who claim their Harley Davidson motorcycles were defectively designed because their engines ran so hot as to pose a constant danger to riders of being burned and were therefore not fit for their intended use.

Harley Davidson Sued

The complaint alleges that since 1999, Twin Cam 88, 96, 103 and 110 cubic inch engines in Harley motorcycles produce severe, excessive heat causing clothing to catch on fire, burn injuries and the danger of burn injury to riders and passengers as well as overheating causing premature engine wear and in models manufactured after 2006, transmission failure. Although Harley Davidson asked the Eastern District of California court to throw out the claims under state law, the U.S. District Judge sided with the bikers.

Greg Owen, a partner at Los Angeles personal injury attorneys Owen, Patterson & Owen and one of the lawyers representing the plaintiffs in this case, states, “Harley Davidson has known about this problem from the early 2000s and has the technology to fix it, but has chosen to sell tens of thousands of touring bikes here in California without disclosing this known defect. When Harley customers complain to Harley’s dealers after purchase, Harley’s response is that’s normal and it refuses to offer an effective fix to the problem.”

Owen believes the unsafe heat problem is due to Harley selling larger engines that cannot comply with the emission standards of many states, including California.

‘The fix is pretty simple,’ says Owen, “and Harley already has it – manufacture touring bikes with liquid cooled engines instead of air cooled engines. If Harley did that this serious design and safety defect would go away.”

The recent ruling allows the case to move forward, and Harley Davidson will now face Class Action Certification process at the end of the month. image

EBR 1190 Ready To Race in Ohio

July 07, 2011

A pipe dream is about to become a reality this weekend in Ohio.  The AMSOIL sponsored Erik Buell Racing (EBR) 1190 RS has been in production for the past several months, with more than 30 bikes already in the hands of customers.  At the AMA Pro Road Racing event held in Lexington, Ohio this weekend, the EBR 1190 will race for the first time.

The new bike will be replace the Buell 1125 that top rider Geoff May has been riding so far this season in the American Superbike class.  The new bike will bring more horsepower, better aerodynamics and smoother handling to the Mid-Ohio Raceway.  For company founder Erik Buell, it’s the next step in Eric Buell Racingrebuilding a brand.

Eric Buell Racing

AMSOIL Racing: Erik, we know you’re excited.  How is Geoff doing?

Erik Buell:  Extremely excited, but cautious. We know we are just getting started racing the EBR 1190RS, but we all know what a huge amount of effort it took to get here. The whole EBR team, including suppliers and sponsors like AMSOIL, has been working so hard to get us to this point that it will be a very rewarding moment to see all their efforts on track at last.

AR: So you guys got approved by the AMA.  Not an easy process, right?

EB: This was a complex process, unlike in the past. We had to prove we had produced a certain number of fully street legal 1190RS models that met all EPA/DOT regulations. No special allowances for modifications, or using legality in some other country as a means to qualify. Also we had to supply a complete set of critical parts, all detailed drawings for the parts with tolerances, as well as parts manuals, owner’s manuals, etc. Everything to make sure they can validate that we are racing the street bike with only allowable modifications, nothing custom just for our team.

AR: The bike has a little more get-up-and-go over the 1125?

EB: The bikes will have a bit more than the 1125RR race bikes had,  but they have not been refined or tweaked yet. Basically stock motors, with a base gasket removed to increase compression, and a race muffler and race ECM. So about 180 RWHP.

AR: Is there anything also about the bike we can add?

EB: The bikes started as stock 1190RS models that the race department received about two weeks ago.  And the 1190RS is completely new from front to rear from the old 1125. The radically different bodywork is the visual cue, but from front axle to rear, it is a new bike. So the team has a lot to learn, but are very excited about the potential.

AR: Good luck this weekend.

EB:  Thank you and many thanks to everyone at AMSOIL for their help in getting this bike on the race track.

Racing fuels Buell’s comeback as maker of sport bikes
