Protection Against Wear - Critical for Snowmobile Engines
Why AMSOIL? | The introduction of the world’s first synthetic motor oil to meet American Petroleum Institute service requirements in 1972 set all-new standards for motor oil quality. AMSOIL synthetic motor oil outperformed conventional petroleum motor oils on all counts. It was clear from the start that this innovative product would play a major role in engine performance and engine life.
That tradition of innovation continues with AMSOIL synthetic two- and four-stroke snowmobile oils. They withstand the toughest operating conditions, delivering peace of mind that your sled is protected no matter how hard you ride. Plus, AMSOIL synthetic snowmobile oils are Warranty Secure™, keeping your factory warranty intact. They’re outstanding choices whether you are a Polaris®, Ski-Doo®, Arctic Cat®, Yamaha® or other brand of sled.
- Exhaust Power Valve Cleanliness
- Premium Quality and Warranty
- Outstanding Cold-Flow

Field Studies and Performance Data for AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR®
for Ski-Doo Rotax E-TEC Engines (G3039) (1.4 MB PDF)AMSOIL subjected INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil to 50 hours of severe-duty engine testing and two industry-standard ASTM tests to demonstrate that INTERCEPTOR exceeds the performance requirements of high-performance DFI snowmobile engines in severe operating conditions.
INTERCEPTOR ® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil (AIT)
is a specialized oil designed for specialized engines. It provides reliability and longevity in hard-ridden sleds, helping you spend more time riding and less time wrenching. It also costs less than OEM offerings. Its extreme low-pour point makes AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® perfect for DFI engines, providing peace of mind riding.
AMSOIL subjected INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil to 50 hours of severe-duty engine testing and two industry-standard ASTM tests to demonstrate that INTERCEPTOR exceeds the performance requirements of high-performance DFI snowmobile engines in severe operating conditions.
Testing proves the effectiveness of AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil in Rotax® E-TEC® engines specifically, and high-performance DFI powersports engines in general. Following 50 hours of engine dyno testing, merit ratings assigned to components by an ASTM calibrated rater offer convincing proof of performance, with INTERCEPTOR earning perfect ratings for piston skirt scuffing and piston ring sticking. Ratings for cylinder bore cross hatch removal, exhaust port blocking and other areas were high and reflect the oil’s ability to control deposits and inhibit wear. INTERCEPTOR exceeds the performance requirements. AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is safe to use in Rotax® E-TEC® engines.
The results of the ASTM D 4863 lubricity test provide additional proof of performance. At a 150:1 gas-to-oil ratio far leaner than the ratios produced by the Rotax E-TEC 800R engine INTERCEPTOR demonstrated increased lubricity compared to XPS-2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil and surpassed the performance benchmark. In addition, INTERCEPTOR prevented piston skirt scuffing and cylinder wear and showed strong detergency properties in the ASTM D 4857 detergency test, surpassing XPS-2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil as the performance benchmark in almost all instances. Proving that AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR 2-Stroke Oil is an excellent alternative to XPS-2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil.
These results have also been confirmed in a 3,469-Mile Rotax E-TEC Engine Case Study (G3038). Pistons taken from a 2011 Ski-Doo TNT snowmobile equipped with a Rotax E-TEC 800R engine exhibited no scuffing or ring sticking following 3,469 miles of real-world, aggressive trail riding.
Based on the results of the Extreme Dynamometer Test on Rotax E-TEC Engines, AMSOIL guarantees that INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil effectively lubricates Rotax E-TEC engines and is a highperformance replacement for BRP’s more-costly XPS-2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil.
