Well, it finally snowed! This morning I awoke to the sounds of snowblowers doing their thing. Then I thought, It's snowmobile time!! Even though I don't have one, I know a lot of people who do. Those people keep telling me how much I need one and how much fun I will have. They are probably right.
Then, I thought about all of the great stuff Amsoil offers for the wintertime equipment. Did you know that Amsoil is the official oil of the SnoCross Series? Check out their site for more information: snocross.com.
Today's sleds demand specialized lubricants. Amsoil has them. The Ski-Doo* Rotax* E-TEC* and Arctic Cat* C-TEC2* engines offer perfect examples. The E-TEC incorporates electronic equipment that can adjust the amount of oil the engine uses depending on operating conditions. As a result, the engine produces fewer exhaust emissions – and more severe operating conditions.
Similarly, Arctic Cat’s C-TEC2 engine features dual-stage injection, where fuel is injected directly into the boost port side of the cylinder at low rpm and also into the crankcase area at high rpm. Like the E-TEC, it uses less oil than previous engines. In one Arctic Cat promotional video, riders are told to expect fuel-to-oil ratios in the range of 65:1, depending on riding conditions. The result, according to Arctic Cat, is improved performance, fuel-economy and emissions.
Getting the most out of your sled requires using an oil proven to stand up to the punishment doled out by modern engines. Two-stroke oils should focus on three areas of performance:AMSOIL INTERCEPTOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil completely prevented piston scufﬁng.
