Product Description

European Car Formula 0W-40 Classic Emissions System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil (EFO) Full-SAPS formulation for maximum engine protection. AMSOIL European Car Formula contains high-quality anti-wear additives and surpasses tough vehicle-manufacturer oil specifications. It provides outstanding protection in high-rpm, hot-running engines and delivers dependable long-term performance for the extended drain intervals recommended by European vehicle manufacturers.

Superior Engine Cleanliness

The excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency properties of AMSOIL European Car Formula help keep engines clean. It is specially designed to prevent sludge and varnish deposits, reduce oil consumption, extend engine life and provide maximum overall performance.

All-Season Performance

The broad 0W-40 viscosity rating, low volatility (burn-off) and wax-free nature of AMSOIL European Car Formula make it excellent for hot and cold temperatures. It helps reduce engine wear, control oil thickening and provide easier cold starts.

Excellent For Turbochargers

AMSOIL European Car Formula has a robust composition that shields engines from the high temperatures produced by turbochargers. Its thermally stable oil formulation resists deposit formation and cools turbochargers. Its low pour point protects turbo-chargers against oil starvation in subzero temperatures and ensures a rapid return to appropriate oil pressure at startup.

• Engineered to meet European manufacturers' specifications
• Excellent protection for gasoline and diesel engines
• Fights sludge for superior engine cleanliness

Complete Coverage

AMSOIL European Car Formula meets and often exceeds strict European manufacturer specifications. Its shear-stable synthetic base oils and high-quality anti-wear additives provide outstanding protection in high-temperature conditions and deliver dependable performance throughout the long drain intervals recommended by European manufacturers.

COMPATIBILITY

AMSOIL European Car Formula is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will reduce the performance benefits.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.

Service Life

Recommended for the extended drain intervals established by the vehicle manufacturer. Change oil filter at time of oil change.

HEALTH & SAFETY

This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Great Oil Bought by the Case!

Been using this great oil since I bought my 2017 VW Spotswagon. Great product and time will tell if my engine lasts the 10 + years I plan to keep my station wagon.

Buy again, no DSG

I would definitely purchase this product again and have for the last 3 years. The problem that I'm running into is that you sell the lubricate for my DSG transmission, but no filter. I can't in good faith buy oil that is 135.00 w/o a filter so I went to another company. I was hoping to have all Amsoil in the car, but I guess I won't.

Will buy again and highly recommend!!

I used this for my 2013 Audi Q5 3.0t. I couldn't be happier with Amsoil! I've seen an increase in gas mileage (appox. 2-3mpg) and I haven't had to add three quarts in between oil changes like I did with the manufacturer's suggested synthetic oil. Only thing I can complain about is that it isn't available at any auto parts stores.
