Semi truck transmission fluid… keeps you trucking a million miles
One highway marker after another, long haul drivers put their machines through some of the toughest workloads you can dream up. Extreme heat, maxed-out loads, frequent upshifts and downshifts – it all relies on using the best fluids in your semi’s powertrain. Nowhere is it as important to use the premium fluids as a semi truck transmission.
Whether you drive a Peterbilt, Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack, or any other make, transmission failure could cost you days of lost income and thousands in transmission repair. For fleet managers and vehicle owners alike, a small investment in AMSOIL Long-Life Synthetic Transmission Oil will not just help prevent wear and tear and breakdowns, but will improve your semi tractor’s efficiency as well.
What AMSOIL® oils do for you
After case studies and real-world testing, there’s no comparison at all. AMSOIL transmission fluid outperforms all others. Our transmission fluid shows the lowest iron content in the fluid after a half-million miles (800,000 km) signaling extremely low internal wear. Copper content is extremely low as it protects against synchro wear. It measures as the most stable oil against oxidation, even when under maximum load way beyond 100,000 miles.
What you can expect as a commercial truck owner-operator, fleet manager, or driver is a truck that:
- Maintains its transmission fluid level better due to less leakage past seals
- Shifts better since there’s less wear on gears and synchros
- And smoother clutch engagement and disengagement
Even fuel efficiency is improved with lower friction inside a heavy, rotating mass when AMSOIL is used.
