AMSOIL Inc. of Superior, Wis., has re-positioned two of its synthetic automatic transmission fluids to be included in the company’s Signature Series family – the AMSOIL Multi-Vehicle Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid and AMSOIL Fuel-Efficient Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid.
The fluids’ robust performance was proven during severe-service field testing, says the company, validating the expanded service life recommendations. AMSOIL Signature Series ATF is recommended for twice the vehicle manufacturers’ severe-service drain interval. The products also feature new packaging.
Signature Series ATF provides high and low temperature performance and oxidation stability. In addition, AMSOIL Synthetic ATF is formulated to improve fuel efficiency, reduce transmission temperatures and increase equipment life.
A premiere feature of the new Signature Series transmission fluids is the effectiveness in severe service. In order to demonstrate the capabilities of the new line, AMSOIL partnered with a Las Vegas taxicab fleet whose constant idling, stop-and-go driving and passenger loads in searing desert heat can push drivetrain fluids to the limit. The test showed optimum wear protection and durability.
