Quick Shot SE - Smail engine fuel additive (2-cycle and 4-stroke)

Question: How does AMSOIL Quickshot™SE address the problems associated with small engines and power sports equipment?

Answer: Quickshot™SE contains a revolutionary technology that focuses on three issues plaguing small engines and power sports equipment owners: water, ethanol and dirty pump gas. It is inevitable that water will ultimately find its way into gas tanks through condensation in tanks open to the atmosphere, gas pumps or any number of conditions. Therefore, if left untreated, contaminated gasoline will lead to starting, performance and corrosion issues. By keeping water in tiny molecules, Quickshot™SE safely moves it out of the tank through the combustion chamber where it vaporizes and goes unnoticed by equipment operators. Ethanol readily separates from gasoline and ends up on the bottom of gas tanks in a concentration that is rich in ethanol and water. This mixture does not burn well and can also create a lean burn situation. Quickshot™SE is designed to keep water dispersed throughout the fuel tank, moving it out as a normal part of operation and ultimately lessening the chance of ethanol separating from the gasoline. Dirty pump gas may cause fuel system gum and varnish as well as piston/combustion chamber deposits over time. Pump gas contains varying levels of detergents designed to keep buildup and deposits from causing problems. The lower levels of detergents usually cannot prevent this buildup of deposits, so added cleanup is required for optimum performance over time. Quickshot™SE contains unique chemistry that quickly softens and carries away deposits and buildups in fuel systems, injectors and carburetors. In addition, Quickshot™SE cleans hard to remove deposits on piston tops, spark plugs and other combustion chamber parts.

Synthetic Oil Basics


AMSOIL *NEW* Diesel Oils

AMSOIL upgraded the technology on DEO, increased the TBN to 10.4 and created a compelling extended oil
drain capability of up to three times (3X) original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) recommendations. The
extended drain interval on the reformulated DEO is now defined using both miles and hours for a wide variety
of on-road and off-road applications. Upgraded AMSOIL Premium API CJ-4 Synthetic 5W-40 Diesel Oil also has
a documented fuel efficiency benefit of up to 3% over conventional 15W-40 diesel oils. With the upgraded
technology, AMSOIL DEO can also be recommended for a longer list of worldwide specifications.

The new Premium API CJ-]4 Synthetic 15W-40 Diesel Oil (DME). AMSOIL Premium 15W-40 Diesel Oil is formulated to resist breakdown from continuous operation and high loads. Built with heavy duty detergent/dispersant additives, this high TBN (10.4) formula is naturally resistant to the detrimental effects of high soot loading. It keeps soot particles suspended independently, preventing them from attaching together to form larger, wear causing particles. AMSOIL Premium 15W]40 resists heat and breakdown better than conventional petroleum oils for long lasting performance and protection.

Testimonials

Peter Virgona of Merrick, NY is a self-proclaimed oil enthusiast.

“I do a great deal of reading and research, always looking for the best oil,” Virgona said. “The more I read the more I realized AMSOIL was the best ‘true’ synthetic I could buy. After using Mobil 1 since 1986, I made the switch to AMSOIL.”

Virgona drives a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria with nearly 98,000 miles on the engine. He switched from Mobil 1 to AMSOIL 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.

“The difference was immediate and signifi - cant,” Virgona said. “The idle became much smoother. There are times I can’t tell if the car is running. It also became much more responsive to the gas pedal, so much more responsive my wife asked me what I did to the car.”

He has owned the car for almost nine years. “Not surprisingly, the gas mileage improved signifi cantly,” he said. “This car always averaged 15 mpg going back and forth from work. It now averages 16.5 mpg. That’s a 10 percent increase. I truly didn’t expect such a big change.”

He waited to report his fi ndings until after he had driven the car at least 5,000 miles “to confi rm that the numbers are average and not just a fl uke.”

Virgona also installed AMSOIL 5W-30 in his sister-in-law’s 1996 Dodge Caravan with a 3.0 litre V6 engine. She had always used conventional motor oil with regular oil changes every 3,000 miles, Virgona said.

“Nonetheless, she had a signifi cant amount of sludge that was obvious under the oil cap,” he said. “She also experienced a very loud lifter noise that would come and go with the engine either hot or cold. Presumably the sludge was affecting the oil circulation to the lifters.”

Oil consumption in the van was increasing, using about one quart every 1,500 to 2,000 miles.

“I switched her to AMSOIL and put in a new fi lter,” Virgona said. “Within 1,000 miles the lifter noise was all but gone. By 3,000 miles, virtually all the sludge was gone. I drained and refi lled the oil a second time with AMSOIL 5W-30. The oil consumption is now down to one quart every 3,000 miles, with no more lifter noise. And, except for a little yellow varnish, all the sludge is gone.

“I am very happy with AMSOIL and plan to use it from now on. I recommend it to anyone who wants a great synthetic oil.”

Virgona just had a case shipped to his father-in-law in Florida because he believes in AMSOIL products, he said, and wants others to experience their benefi ts. In fact, he’s considering becoming a Dealer. The more I read the more I realized AMSOIL was the best ‘true’ synthetic I could buy.

Better Fuel Mileage

Better Fuel Economy Fuel economy is becoming more important with each passing year. Gas and diesel prices keep rising, putting a major strain on businesses that rely on vehicles and heavy equipment in their daily operations. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants improve fuel economy by allowing moving parts to move more freely, using less energy and creating less friction than when conventional lubricants are used. The use of AMSOIL synthetic motor oil, gear lubes and transmission fluids can have a profound impact on fuel economy. Industry tests demonstrate an average conservative decrease in fuel consumption by two to five percent by switching to synthetic lubricants. Many AMSOIL customers report even larger gains in fuel economy.
