Proven to Eliminate Deposits that Cause Exhaust Power Valves and Ring Sticking in 2-Stroke Engines
AMSOIL Interceptor Full Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil (Product Code: AIT) is engineered specifically for power sports applications, with an emphasis on exhaust power valves. It is recommended for all types of recreational equipment. It provides maximum performance in all makes of two-stroke snowmobiles, including Arctic Cat, Ski-Doo, Polaris and Yamaha, helping enthusiasts spend more time riding and less performing maintenance. It contains high levels of detergent additives to prevent exhaust power valve and piston ring sticking. Its low-smoke, low-odor properties help ensure riders won’t be “smoked out.”
Extensive research and testing, including a full snowmobiling season in the severe conditions of the Rocky Mountains, has proven that Interceptor virtually eliminates deposits that cause exhaust power valve sticking and ring sticking. In fact, two separate field trials conducted with over 100 snowmobiles produced no stuck exhaust power valves after thousands of accumulated miles during an entire season of riding. See images in Product Details section below.
AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is excellent for use in all 2-stroke carburetor, electronic fuel injected (EFI) and direct fuel injected (DFI) snowmobiles, motorcycles, PWC (personal watercraft), ATVs and jet boats. It is a premium-quality replacement for manufacturer-branded oil and may be used as an injector oil or as a 50:1 premix. It is compatible with nearly all other two-stroke oils.

Snowmobile engines have evolved to run on leaner gas-to-oil mixtures, increasing harmful friction and heat. AMSOIL Interceptor 2-Stroke Oil’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, AMSOIL Interceptor’s anti-scuff/anti-wear formula completely prevented piston skirt scuffing.
Excellent Engine Cleanliness
AMSOIL Interceptor Full Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil 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, AMSOIL Interceptor completely prevented piston ring and exhaust power valve sticking for maximum performance. It also limited piston, combustion chamber and spark plug deposits for reliable operation.
AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil virtually eliminates hard carbon deposits that cause pre-detonation promoting “hot spots” in the combustion chamber.
AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is formulated with wax-free premium quality synthetic esters and mixes readily with fuel, even in low temperatures. Providing exceptional SAE 4 cold temperature fluidity (a pour point of -72°F), it resists gelling to provide excellent performance and protection in low temperatures.
Reduces Smoke and Odor
AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is ideal for the environmentally conscious. Their clean-burn characteristics dramatically reduces exhaust emissions typically associated with 2-stroke engines.
400,000 Miles of Severe Snowmobile Field Testing With No Deposit Build Up, Power Valve Sticking, Ring Sticking or Engine Failures
Extensive research and testing, including a full snowmobiling season in severe Rocky Mountain applications, has proven that wear on cylinders, pistons and bearings is dramatically reduced with AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil, for a longer engine life. AMSOIL Interceptor also demonstrated outstanding deposit control in the adverse Rocky Mountain field testing, which included long trail rides, high RPM powder riding and steep hill climbs:
No carbon deposits are detectable in the functioning region of the exhaust power valves, resulting in “no-stick” performance, continuous valve operation and reduced maintenance:
Pistons show no scoring, little to no wear and no heavy deposits, and wrist pins show no discoloration from heat. The original machine markings on the pistons are still visible:
Proven in Extreme Dynamometer Test on Rotax E-TEC Engine
AMSOIL 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 AMSOIL Interceptor excelled at inhibiting deposits and wear. See the complete dyno results, including images of the disassembled engine:

Polaris Exhaust Power Valve Field Study
AMSOIL Interceptor 2-Stroke Oil was installed in a 2011 Polaris 800 Assault and placed into service for two seasons. After 1,300 miles of hard riding, the exhaust power valves were removed and inspected.
Protects Against Engine Rust
AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil’s special rust and corrosion inhibitors provide 2-stroke engines with excellent protection, especially during off-season storage.
Applications – Injector Oil or Premix
AMSOIL Interceptor Full Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil (AIT) is a premium-quality replacement for recreational equipment manufacturers’ branded 2-cycle oils.
