Amsoil Racing or Injector

Thanks, Pacman.

I think I'm going to give the Amsoil Injector a try -- 100% Synthetic as well -- and can't beat the price -- $75Cdn for a case of 12, shipping and taxes included.

Many people seem to use it without a problem.

P.S.: You get that sled from G&S yet??? I notice your signature has changed so I assume you have...should be glad you waited since there was no snow here anyway! :-0

hey guys

i work at an arctic cat dealer and we are dealers for amsoil. your 800 has power valves and the only oil recomended by arctic cat is their APV synthetic. it is the only oil specifically made for those power valves. your amsoil probably wont hurt anything but cat doesnt recomend it. hope i could be some help

I run Ansoil Synthetic Injector oil in both our sleds, my wifes Trail, as well as my Modded out XC. Got started as a preferred cust, now am a dealer. Never had an oil related problem, always start easy. Just run your tank down failry low, then refill with your new oil.

In my opinion, Amsoil is better than manufacture's oil. I have two friends with identical '01 XC SP 500's. Recently they took a trip to Maine where they drove almost 1500 in about a two week period. One of them ran Polaris VES oil and the other ran Amsoil Injector. When they got back, they both had their exhaust valves cleaned and the guy running Amsoil had almost half the amount of crap on the exhaust valves that the guy running the VES oil had!!! In my opinion it doesnt matter if u run synthetic or racing as long as u run Amsoil!!!

zr60001, i thought all snowmobile oil was synthetic? oh well. but the dude who says he works at a cat dealership? i know the guy who owns the one near me and went to haydays with him, hes a good guy by the way, anywho, he said that the amsoil is good to run in it, but he recommends the cat oil, cuz obviously he wants to make a sale. as for difference between the injector and racing oil, the guy i talked to at amsoil said that the injector oil is recommended on all sleds with an oil injector, and the only difference is that the racing oil will withstand more of a punishment, so to say, as in racing with the extreme heat generated in the engine from the constant rpm changes.

All snowmobile oil is not synthetic! Even the Polaris VES and Gold synthetic is not a pure synthetic oil!! I'm not sure about the new Polaris race oil because the dealer I race for doesn't stock it so I haven't been able to check out the ingredients. They way to tell if a oil is a pure synthetic product is to look at the back label (or front on some brands) and read the fine print. I know for a fact that the Polaris VES oil contains a petroleum based ingredient. The oil manufactures are required by law (USA & maybe Canada)to put the ingrediants on the bottle. This is the only way to tell a good quality synthetic oil. How can the snowmobile manufactures call there oil "synthetic" when they contain petroleum based products in them? It is because there is a small amount of synthetic oil blended in. So read the oil bottle before you buy it if you want "synthetic" oil. You will not find any "pertoleum" based ingredients in any Amsoil products. We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality product available. Basically it is a buyer beware market when it comes to the "synthetic" oils. So read the bottle and make sure you are getting the high quality oils you are paying for. Any questions on Amsoil products go to my website
