Product Data Sheet
INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is Warranty Secure,™ keeping your factory warranty intact. INTERCEPTOR is a high-performance replacement for vehicle manufacturer-branded products and is also backed by the AMSOIL Limited Warranty (G1363). For details, visit www.amsoil.com/warrantysecure.
Recommended oil for Bombardier & Skidoo.
Two-stroke powersports equipment is meant to be ridden hard. Repeatedly pushing a machine to wide-open throttle during all-day, aggressive riding, however, takes its toll on the engine. INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is specifically designed for reliability and longevity in hard-ridden snowmobiles, dirt bikes, ATVs and PWCs, helping enthusiasts spend more time riding and less performing maintenance. Its low-smoke, low-odor properties help ensure riders won’t be “smoked out.” INTERCEPTOR is compatible with nearly all other two-stroke oils and is recommended for most makes and models of two-stroke powersports equipment, eliminating the need to purchase and store multiple types of oil. It’s an oil engineered to be pushed as hard as the equipment it protects.
Audio Overview on Interceptor & New Injector Oil
AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil is engineered specially for power sports applications and those engines equipped with exhaust power valves. It contains the finest synthetic ester based oils and additives available for exceptional cleanliness properties. INTERCEPTOR is the result of years of snowmobile field testing in the Rocky Mountain region, which provided some of the most severe conditions possible. INTERCEPTOR excels at controlling exhaust valve sticking and provides outstanding overall lubrication properties.
Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP®), the manufacturer of Ski-Doo snowmobiles, leads consumers to believe that only its more-expensive XPS-2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil is capable of providing the required level of protection. In fact, the snowmobile arrived from the factory with an attached notice recommending XPS-2 Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil exclusively.
This link to the AMSOIL Interceptor Case Study (2012) will demonstrate the superior protection AMSOIL provides

If you don't have power valves try the NEW (AIO) 2-Stroke Injector Oil
AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Cycle Oil is formulated with a proprietary blend of the finest synthetic base oils and additives available today. This unique AMSOIL chemistry represents a breakthrough development in the field of two-cycle engine lubrication.The backbone of AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR 2-Cycle Oil is a specially developed molecularly saturated synthetic base oil. This, combined with a potent additive package, ensures exceptional lubricity, cleanliness and optimum clean-burning characteristics. Specifically formulated to inhibit exhaust power valve sticking, ring sticking and engine wear in high-performance powersports applications. It contains synthetic base oils that increase lubricity and provide exceptional wear protection for pistons, cylinders and bearings.
Two-stroke powersports engines have evolved to run on leaner gas-to-oil mixtures, increasing harmful friction and heat. INTERCEPTOR’s synthetic formulation incorporates high-molecular-weight components with high flash points that resist burn-off. As a result, a greater amount of oil survives the combustion process to provide lubrication and protection. Its excellent lubricity and film strength inhibit metal-to-metal contact. In extreme dynamometer testing, INTERCEPTOR’s anti-scuff/anti-wear formula completely prevented piston skirt scuffing.
Excellent Deposit Control
INTERCEPTOR naturally resists harmful deposits due to its thermally stable synthetic formulation. It is additionally fortified with high-temperature detergency and dispersancy additives that provide excellent engine cleanliness. In extreme dynamometer testing, INTERCEPTOR completely prevented piston ring and exhaust power valve sticking for maximum performance. It also severely limited piston, combustion chamber and spark plug deposits for reliable operation.
Proven in Extreme Dynamometer Test on Rotax® E-TEC® Engine
INTERCEPTOR was installed in a 2012 BRP® Ski-Doo® Renegade X snowmobile equipped with a Rotax E-TEC 800R engine. Following 50 hours of severe-duty engine dynamometer testing designed to simulate a full season of real-world conditions, the engine was disassembled and rated for deposits, wear and other distress by an ASTM calibrated rater. Each component earned a merit rating on a scale of 0 to 10 (with 10 representing no distress) or a percentage rating (with 0 percent representing no distress). Results prove INTERCEPTOR excelled at inhibiting deposits and wear. See the complete dyno results at technical_study/proof.
Use AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil in all two-stroke snowmobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, PWCs and where API TC oils are specified.
Use as injection oil or 50:1 premix (2.6 oz. per U.S. gallon of gas). INTERCEPTOR is compatible with most conventional and synthetic two-cycle oils; however, for best performance, mixing oils should be minimized.

November - From The Presidents Desk - Comments from Founder & CEO Al Amatuzio:
Opportunity doesn’t stop with products. As you will read in this issue, we back up our products with technical support. We make every attempt to arm our Dealers with tools that validate our product performance. The extensive testing we conducted on AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR 2-Stroke Oil is documented in our technical paper, A Study of INTERCEPTOR Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil for Ski-Doo Rotax E-TEC Engines . This piece is the most comprehensive study I have seen on two-stroke oil. I can’t envision the snowmobile owner who won’t consider using AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR after reading this detailed document.
Extensive testing was also documented in the diesel market, where fuel economy is critical. On the heels of a study released recently which demonstrated that AMSOIL lubes provided a 6.54 percent increase in fuel economy in on-highway service (Diesel Fleet Fuel Economy Study), we have now released a study revealing that our products provided a 3.15 percent fuel economy increase in stop-and-go city driving. That represents significant savings. You can see the details on page 10 of this issue.
These studies, along with all of the others we have done, deliver conclusive proof that AMSOIL lubricants provide real, meaningful value to consumers. At AMSOIL, we don’t just talk the talk. We remain committed to arming Dealers with both outstanding products and concrete proof of performance. No company does it better.
Be advised - Ski-Doo snowmobile dealerships caught lying to customers and breaking federal law at the same time. From time to time some original equipment manufacturers have been caught advising customers that the use of oils other than the OEM branded oil will void customers warranties. Of course this is not true as dictated by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act which states, in essence that any oil conventional or synthetic which meets correct viscosity grade and service requirements can be used in the application in question. the only circumstance under which a manufacturer can require the exclusive use of a particular oil is if that manufacturer provides the OIL FREE OF CHARGE! (or if the application is not intended for consumers).
Here's the letter sent to BRB:
Actual scare tactics were used in the owners manuals but it was quickly taken to their attention by AMSOIL INC. The language in the Ski-Doo owners’ manual stated that the “Use of other
2-stroke engine oils may cause severe engine damage and may void the limited warranty.” It went on to say that there was “no known equivalent” to the branded Ski-Doo lubricant on the market. Needless to say this is all total nonsense. AMSOIL wasted no time in setting the record straight.
AMSOIL Attorneys advised the staff at BRP - Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. that their warranty language “violates both federal and state laws regarding warranties and deceptive/unfair practices.” The chaps at BRP agreed to modify the language in its snowmobile owners’ manual.
Recently, AMSOIL customers notified us that when they purchased a Ski-Doo snowmobile, the snowmobile dealer advised that it was necessary to use Ski-Doo branded lubricants – or risk the loss of warranty coverage. Dealers were likely relying on language in the Ski-Doo operators’ manual that said to “use only” a specified Ski-Doo synthetic lubricant and stated: “Use of other 2-stroke engine oils may cause severe engine damage and may void the limited
warranty.” Other language in some Ski-Doo operators’ manuals said that there was “no known equivalent” to the branded Ski-Doo lubricant on the market.
AMSOIL confronted Bombardier Recreational Products, the manufacturer of Ski-Doo snowmobiles, about the warranty language in its operators’ guides. Specifically, AMSOIL asserted that the warranty language violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a federal
law which prohibits manufacturers from requiring the use of a branded service/replacement part, unless the branded service/replacement part is provided free of charge. AMSOIL pointed out that its line of synthetic lubricants meets or exceeds the engine performance requirements for both 2- and 4-cycle engines used in power sports equipment.
Bombardier Recreational Products, while denying that its warranty language violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act or any other regulation, has advised AMSOIL that it has never denied a warranty claim based on use of an “improper oil.” Further, Bombardier advised that it will modify the language of its snowmobile operators’ guides as follows:
1. It will no longer say that use of oil other than the Ski-Doo branded product may void the warranty.
2. When it recommends a particular branded product, it will ensure that the language is clearly identified as a recommendation rather than a requirement.
3. It will no longer comment on the availability of equivalents to the Ski-Doo brand oil(s).
AMSOIL is publishing this notice to inform the public of this significant change in Ski-Doo’s warranty policy and to assure its customers the AMSOIL line of synthetic lubricants meets or exceeds the performance requirements of their snowmobile engines and to insure that snowmobile owners do not mistakenly believe that use of AMSOIL lubricants will place their warranties at risk.
Although BRP did not come right out and admit they were in violation, they obviously conceded the issue and I appreciate the initiative they are taking to change their oil recommendation language.
We can expect that issues like this will continue to surface, and our Dealers and Preferred Customers can be assured that the company will remain diligent in its effort to keep the playing field level. Purchasing decisions should be made on product quality, and any effort, whether intentional or not, to drive those decisions by any other means is simply unacceptable. At AMSOIL, we let our products do our talking.
Keep in mind that although the interceptor meets API TC, this specification is outdated and becoming obsolete. The primary and more recent specification to look for is JASO FA, FB and FC standards which apply to air-cooled motors found in transportation, hand held power equipment and other small air cooled motors. These standards address improved cleanliness, decreased smoke, emissions and lubricity .AMSOIL goes a step further with Interceptor. This product is designed to combat the problems associated with power valves and expensive OEM 2-cycle lubricants. The AMSOIL Interceptor oil (AIT) if formulated from premium-quality synthetic oils and a potent additive package, Interceptor provides the ultimate in clean engine operation. This two-stroke formula effectively prevents plug fouling and significantly reduces wear on cylinders, pistons and bearings while also minimizing smoke and odor.
Exhaust Power Valves are devices installed in the exhaust port that increase or decrease the size of the exhaust port during the operation of the motor. This system increases the efficiency of the motor and expands its power band. The motor produces more power, uses less fuel and produces fewer emissions. Personal watercraft, motorcycles and snowmobiles commonly use these types of engines. In the past, these valves required routine maintenance. Carbon and soot build-up on the valves caused them to stick. If the valve sticks, the motor looses power. The ash type chemistry used in AMSOIL Interceptor 2-cycle injection oils are very potent and limit the carbon deposit formation. Proper amounts of ash are critical and provide excellent results.

Driver: Scott Clark Racing: Professional Oval Track Snowmobile Racing World Series Champion in Stock 550 and Pro Stock 440 "After some testing on the snowmobile, AMSOIL additives were put in and contributed to better speed performance and quicker times. The other products, such as lubes and grease, worked exceptionally well. They are superior to any other that we've used. The grease was on all suspension parts of the snowmobile as well as the fifth-wheel hitch and our truck. We put the engine additive in the truck, which made it run cooler and, most likely, will prolong the life of the engine. The AMSOIL spray lube was used when cleaning the clutches. We found many performance gains."
