AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil

AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil

AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil is specially formulated for hybrid engines. The internal combustion engine (ICE) in a hybrid vehicle endures a unique set of challenges. Infrequent engine usage and increased stop/start activity place demands on lubricants not common in traditional ICE vehicles. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil is a premium upgrade over vehicle-manufacturer-branded motor oils, delivering purpose-built protection for the hybrid-drive cycle to maximize hybrid engine life, efficiency and performance.


Hybrid engines operate intermittently, making them especially vulnerable to corrosion. Infrequent use and reduced load on the ICE leads to lower engine temperatures that are insufficient to completely remove condensation inside the engine by evaporation, which can lead to rust, wear and decreased efficiency. AMSOIL is formulated with a boosted does of inhibitors to help prevent condensation-related corrosion and maintain optimal engine performance. It also contains an elevated level of dispersants to manage water that enters through condensation.


Frequent stop/start activity can lead to cooler cylinders and incomplete combustion, increasing the likelihood of unburnt fuel leaking down the cylinder walls into the crankcase and contaminating the motor oil — reducing its ability to provide proper lubrication. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil is engineered with robust viscosity to combat the negative effects of fuel dilution.


Because they are used intermittently, hybrid engines endure more frequent starts and stops and motor oil flows intermittently. Therefore, oil needs to flow quickly when the engine engages to reach critical components. The issue is more severe when the engine engages to assist the electric motor during high-load and must instantly reach high rpm. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic Hybrid Motor Oil is formulated to manage those issues with optimal low-temperature viscosity control to ensure rapid protection of components at startup.
