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).

Amsoil believer

As an Amsoil Preferred Customer, I exclusively use European Car Formula 5W-40 in my Mercedes Benz Sprinter work van, as it meets the required MB specifications. I do so for the same reason I use the appropriate Amsoil products in the 38-year old Diesel engine in my commercially-operated boat, in my whole-house generator, my small engines, and in the generators and small engines I service for my customers. I use Amsoil lubricants because I know from long experience that engines supplied with Amsoil oils (and properly maintained in all other respects) enjoy a long, trouble-free life. I sold a '91 Aerostar with 348,000 miles on it-and the engine never needed oil between changes. Same with my '04 Astro van, sold in 2014 at 336,000 miles and still running now. Given the well-earned reputation for longevity of Mercedes Diesels and the high level of protection afforded by Amsoil European Car formula, I'm expecting an even longer life for the Sprinter's engine.

The Best oil on the Mkt.

I have been using AMSOIL , since 1974.When I first heard about AMS OIL. I put it in my 1972 cad. My CAD got over 500.000 miles till a push rod went bad. I all so put, it in the rear end all so in 1974. I never change the rear end oil in 30 years. In 1998 I got a jeep Grand Wagoneer. That week I started using AMS OIL European 5w-40w and AMS in the Trans, Transfer case, Rear end and front axle. It is now 2019 and jeep still runing.

Would Highly Reccomend Amsoil Products.

Bought a used BMW 2013 X3 28I F25 with 180000 miles on it. Switched from the BMW oil that the dealer was putting in it to the European 0W40 Amsoil and the engine is Happy. The valve train noise is much quieter and the performance and fuel mileage is better. The car just seems to be running better. Transmission oil change is next.
Will be installing Amsoil ATF OE.

Hope this keeps my Diesel running.

the Mercedes CRD 3.0 in my car needs high end oil for long longevity as I'm doing a lot of miles per month. With this oil I hope to reach the 500k mark.
Will report here. Currently at 250k with no issues.
