I have a question concerning a couple of injection oils that are currently being sold on the market. The two in mind are: Shell Snow Ultra Full Synthetic and Amsoil Interceptor Full Synthetic.
I own a 2003 Summit 800 HO (ZX chassis) and was wondering if your team has experience with one or both of these oils.
I started using the Shell product and had no problems. My exhaust valves were relatively clean and the sleds exhaust didn’t have much smoke and strong smell at all.
I have seen and heard lots about the Amsoil product and its only about 2 bucks extra for the same amount of oil (when buying a 4L jug).
I just started using it to try so I haven’t been burning it long enough to see any results. Do you think the extra 2 bucks is worth it or should I be saving my pennies on this one?
Thanks for your email!
Both the lubricants you have asked about are – in my opinion – high quality products.
We have used both and found them to deliver excellent cleanliness from both a deposit standpoint on Exhaust Valves and from a smoking standpoint.
Which one is better? Whew – impossible question! I would use whichever one is the easiest to obtain and the most cost effective.
As long as you are using premium quality/premium brand full-synthetic lubes you should expect exceptional performance.
