Non -Detergent Oil

Recommended Posts

I'm changing the oil in the pump on a pressure washer and the book says use non detergent oil. I was wondering if synthetic oil was non detergent? How about diesel engine oil?

All current spec automotive, diesel, motorcycle, etc. engine oils are detergent-type regardless if conventional or synthetic.

Places like Fleet-Farm usually have non-detergent oil. It will say so right on the label. Usually it's in the section by the house brand oils.

I bought some at the area where they sell the pressure washers and it was marked as being for them. Try that.

Yes, all of today's engine oils for gasoline and diesel engines are high detergent. To get non-detergent it has to be 'SA' or 'SB' only rated - which can be rare to find anymore.

AMSOIL Compressor Fluid/Oil, when you read the full data sheet, is perfectly suited for pressure washers, as well as air compressors. (It is non-detergent.)
