Signature Series Max-Duty Diesel Oil 10W-30 DTT

Maximum Engine Protection

Wear on rings and cylinder liners leads to increased oil consumption and loss of compression, resulting in reduced horsepower and fuel economy. Independent testing shows Signature Series Max-Duty delivers 6X more wear protection than required by the Detroit Diesel DD13 Scuffing Test for Specification DFS 93K222, delivering extra protection so you can push your diesel with peace of mind.

Viscosity Control

Using top-tier synthetic base oils, Signature Series Max-Duty is naturally resistant to oxidation and the thickening effects of soot contamination. That, along with boosted detergent/dispersant additives, keeps soot particles suspended independently, helping prevent the formation of larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is controlled. Lower volatility also helps Signature Series Max-Duty Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for maximum engine protection and efficiency.

Excels in Extreme Temperatures

Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown better than conventional and competing synthetic diesel oils. Unlike conventional oils, Signature Series contains no wax, staying fluid in sub-zero temperatures for easier starting, improved oil flow and reduced wear. Signature Series 0W-40 (DZF) has a broad viscosity range that offers 4X better cold-cranking ability than a 15W-40 oil in the ASTM D5293 cold-cranking viscosity test, making it excellent for use in both hot-operating engines and cold-weather starting extremes.

Minimizes Oil Consumption

Signature Series Max-Duty has a low rate of volatility (burn-off), reducing oil consumption during operation and passing less oil vapor into the combustion chamber. It provides up to 76 percent less oil consumption than required by the API CK-4 standard in the Caterpillar-1N oil consumption test.

Two times (2X) OEM1 recommendation, not to exceed 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.

Drain intervals may be extended further with oil analysis.

Note: Extended drain intervals are not recommended for performance-modified engines, when using biofuels containing more than 10 percent ethanol or 15 percent biodiesel (B15) or for 2007-2009 Caterpillar* C13 and C15 on-highway engines. Extend drain intervals beyond OEM recommendations in these instances only with oil analysis. Note: 2007-2010 Dodge, Ford and GM** turbodiesel pickups are also not recommended for extended drain intervals when using DHD.

1Refer to your owner's manual for OEM drain interval recommendations and guidelines for severe and normal service.

Product Warranty

Using AMSOIL synthetic lubricants or practicing extended drain intervals does not void your new vehicle or equipment manufacturer’s warranty. All AMSOIL lubricants and filters are covered by the AMSOIL Limited Warranty. For complete information visit
