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).

Take my money!

I've had a few cars over the years, studebaker, Ford, Jeep, Kia, and bmw to name a few. I've also used many brands of oil. Amsoil is the smoothest I've used. The cars run better, the engine is clean, and I've had better mileage due to the clean lubricating properties of the oil. I even put amsoil in my chainsaw, trimmer (mix with fuel) and lawn mowers. I also use their antifreeze In the car and pickup. I never have an issue with oil, and amsoil personnel are always the most helpful, kind; and when I'm having difficulty with a project, patient people I could ask to work with.
Go amsoil!

Great product with no compromise

This is a great oil that protects and performs. I have used this on a VW TDI and now on the FCA 1.4L Turbo. I have never had a problem with the oil's performance on hot or cold days and even stands up to track day abuse. The engines will even run quieter with this oil compared to other brands.

Great for a Mini Cooper S

I run this in my 2002 Mini Cooper S (R53). After trying a few different brands the Amsoil seems the best as far as gas mileage, keeps the motor running a little cooler and no burn off of any oil. This is the only oil I'd use on this car.
