Stored Equipment Needs Protection – Engine Fogging Oil

FREE Amsoil Catalog

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

amsoil engine fogging oil

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 Provides Complete Vehicle Cold-Weather Performance

Click here for FREE Amsoil catalog!

Amsoil

Amsoil synthetic oil works better in extreme cold. Extreme cold can cause conventional motor oil, transmission fluid and gear lube to thicken, starving vital moving parts of necessary lubrication. In many cases, thick motor oil will prevent vehicles from starting. Cold, thick transmission fluid results in delayed or sluggish shifts and inadequate protection for bearings, valves and other critical parts. Thick gear lube, meanwhile, requires more energy to turn the gears, reducing fuel efficiency. Because gears and bearings in the axle housing are splash-lubricated, conventional gear lubes that are too thick at cold temperatures can starve internal components of lubrication, which can cause excessive wear and premature failure.
Conventional petroleum lubricants thicken because they often contain paraffin (wax). While modern refining techniques remove most of the wax from petroleum oil, some wax-like molecules remain. These wax-like molecules are soluble at ambient temperatures above freezing, but crystallize into a honeycomb-like structure at lower temperatures and cause circulation problems. At startup, this can leave working parts unprotected while the lubricant warms to a temperature that allows it to flow. amsoil synthetic lubricants do not contain paraffin. Amsoil synthetic oils provide outstanding low-temperature fluidity for fast, dependable winter starts; quick, responsive shifts and immediate startup protection. Superior Amsoil Fuel & Coolant Additives and Amsoil Diesel applications can be especially sensitive to cold-weather issues. 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, most fuels have a cloud point near 32°F. The point at which the wax crystals clog the fuel filter is known as the cold filter-plugging point (CFPP). amsoil Cold Flow Improver reduces the CFPP of ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel by as much as 20ºF for increased protection. In frigid conditions, motorists often idle vehicles for extended periods to warm the interiors and defrost the windows. Not only can the practice be inconvenient, it wastes fuel as well. amsoil Dominator® Coolant Boost uses proprietary tiered-surfactant technology to provide quick and effective heat transfer inside radiator and cylinder heads, resulting in faster engine warm-up times. As a result, vehicle interiors warm more quickly and the defroster becomes effective sooner. Amsoil diesel fuel additive. Amsoil antifreeze. Amsoil fuel addetive.

Amsoil

Amsoil

Direct Jobber Craig Hamrick of Macomb, Ill. has been a firefighter in charge of fleet maintenance for 23 years. “My wife and I have been Dealers since 2006 and became Dealers after seeing the impressive results AMSOIL demonstrated in the fire department fleet,” Hamrick said. The fire department is a commercial account of Dealer Glenn Mike Arnold, Hamrick’s sponsor. “We have used Amsoil lubricants since 2003 in the fleet,” Hamrick said. The department has 11 vehicles and numerous small engines and generators, all running with Amsoil products. “Glenn’s knowledge of Amsoil products has helped us select the right products for our needs. Every vehicle in our fleet has AMSOIL installed from front to back.” AMSOIL Powers Generator The Macomb Fire Department generator at the main station is an Onan 150KW unit that is powered by a Cummins QSB 6.7 liter diesel. The generator is equipped with an AMSOIL Duel Remote By-Pass System and Ea Full-Flow and By-Pass Filters. For ease of oil sampling, there is a petcock on one of the ports on the filter housing. The engine is filled with AMSOIL  premium API CJ-4 5W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil (DEO). “The reason for choosing Premium 5W-40 over AMSOIL Premium 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil (DME) is the slightly better flow characteristics of the 5W-40 for cold-weather startup,” Hamrick said. “While this unit has a block heater to keep the coolant warm, the oil can still be fairly cold. This generator must go from stopped to running with full electrical load in less than one minute. The cold flow characteristics of AMSOIL diesel oil provide maximum protection and peace of mind for me and our department.”

The fuel is also treated with AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate plus Cold Flow Improver at each fill-up. “The savings are substantial,” Hamrick said. “We only change oil based on oil analysis now, where before we changed every three months or 250 hours. Fleet uptime is one of the most important benefits for us.  Our equipment must respond and perform at maximum capability every time. The generator is just as important.” Oil Analysis Proves AMSOIL Benefits. Hamrick said he was a skeptic of extended drain intervals when he first was approached about AMSOIL synthetics. However, he soon learned the saving potential of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants. The department saves money through the reduction of waste oil generated, as well as fewer costs for equipment repairs and services, both in time and labor.

The department regularly sends oil samples to OIL ANALYZERS as part of its maintenance program. “The proof is in all of the oil analysis reports,” he said. “We can see by the results.” AMSOIL lubricants are especially well-suited to emergency service vehicles where every second counts. “You never know when you’re going to get that call, and there isn’t a lot of extra equipment available,” Hamrick said. “We need our equipment to be ready and able to perform.”
Even during the winter months, the generator has “instant oil pressure” when it’s fired up, he said. “If you walk into
our station all you will see in our maintenance room is AMSOIL products.” Growing His Own AMSOIL Business
Hamrick specializes in commercial accounts because his background is in heavy-duty diesel equipment. Name recognition of AMSOIL has improved in the years since he became a Dealer. “AMSOIL is easier to sell now
than even when I started as a Dealer,” Hamrick said. He credited AMSOIL INC. for its work building AMSOIL brand recognition in numerous markets. His experience with the products also helps him with other fleet managers as he tells them his first-hand experience of AMSOIL cost savings, equipment performance and longevity. “It’s all about saving money and extending the life of the equipment,” Hamrick said.

Free Amsoil Catalog shipped to you door.

The fall months are the time to place boats, motorcycles and lawn care equipment into storage and prepare snowmobiles, snowblowers and other vehicles for the coming winter.

Amsoil

AMSOIL products are formulated to provide maximum protection for engines and fuel systems during storage, while Amsoil synthetic motor oils’ low pour points provide superior cold-temperature protection and performance in two-and four-stroke winter equipment.

 

Fall Storage Protection

Gasoline can break down in as little as 60 days, causing varnish and gums that clog injectors, fuel lines and carburetors, leading to poor engine performance and starting problems. In many applications, draining the fuel system can be impractical, and doing so can expose the system to corrosion on the bare metal in the tank and fuel system and cause gasket and seal cracking.

AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer reduces the oxidation that occurs when fuel is store for extended periods, improving performance, extending equipment life and decreasing maintenance expenses.Amsoil
During storage, fluctuations in ambient temperatures can form condensation within the engine that can cause 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 dry-started in the spring.

AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil offers superior film retention, providing long-term protection against corrosion and dry starts, extending engine life and reducing operating expenses. Its 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.

Winter Four-Stroke Performance 

Conventional oils thicken in the cold, which can result in inadequate lubrication to critical engine parts at cold start-up, or even prevent the engine from starting.
AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Power Sports Synthetic Motor Oil provides serious protection and performance in four-stroke engines, including ATVs and snowmobiles. Its broad 0W-40 viscosity rating effectively protects in both hot and cold temperature extremes.
AMSOIL Formula 4-Stroke Synthetic Small Engine Oil provides exceptional protection in the severe-service conditions common in both gasoline-and diesel-fueled small engines including welders, skidsteers, compressors, snowblowers and more. It remains fluid at sub-zero temperatures for superior cold-weather protection.
Winter Two-Stroke Performance
AMSOIL DOMINATOR and INTERCEPTOR
Synthetic 2-cycle Oils provides exceptional performance in snowmobiles and other two-stroke equipment. Amsoil DOMINATOR is formulated with heavier base oils for “on the edge” operation, while also protecting pistons and bearings subjected to the rigors of extreme riding.

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.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS
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.

SUPERIOR COLD-WEATHER PERFORMANCE
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.

POUR POINT VS. CFPP
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.

REDUCED NEED FOR #1 DIESEL FUEL
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.
