Product Description

European Car Formula 5W-30 Improved Emissions System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil (AEL) Low-SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil provides exceptional performance and protection for high-performance European vehicles. Its low-viscosity formulation maximizes fuel efficiency without compromising engine protection, while meeting strict European performance requirements for gasoline and direct-injection diesel engines calling for a 5W-30 oil. Formulated with low sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS), AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil complies with modern emissions systems to provide optimum life and performance.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world's first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, The First in Synthetics®, to do the best job protecting your engine.

Stay-in-Grade Performance

Sophisticated European engines subject oil to severe operational conditions. Oils must demonstrate excellent high-temperature/high-shear (HT/HS) performance to maintain viscosity and provide adequate engine protection. AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil is engineered to stay in grade despite rigorous operation throughout the extended drain intervals European automakers recommend. Formulated with a select additive package and shear-stable synthetic base oils, it meets strict ACEA and VW HT/HS requirements to provide outstanding wear protection throughout the entire drain interval.

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.

Low-SAPS Formulation

Excessive sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS) in motor oil can harm modern exhaust treatment devices. Diesel particulate filters (DPFs), for example, require low-SAPS motor oil to resist filter plugging. AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil's lower-SAPS formulation promotes optimum emissions system performance and life, allowing reduced maintenance costs.

Maximum Fuel Economy

AMSOIL European Car Formula is engineered with a lighter 5W-30 viscosity and friction modifiers to reduce friction for increased energy through-put. It minimizes internal engine drag, providing an alternative for motorists currently using heavier-grade oils, but who desire maximum fuel efficiency.

Emissions System Protection
AMSOIL European Car Formula features precisely balanced formulations that consider the needs of modern exhaust treatment devices. Protecting sensitive emissions systems depends on using the optimal blend of SAPS (sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur) to keep these systems functioning properly.

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

Enhanced Turbocharger Protection

Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) engines commonly used in European vehicles require thermally stable oils that resist deposit formation and provide turbocharger cooling. Thermally stable oils help keep oil passages clean and promote fluid circulation so turbo bearings stay cool and lubricated.

AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil provides protection and performance for TDI systems in all temperature extremes. Its low pour point protects turbochargers against oil starvation and ensures rapid oil pressure in sub-zero conditions, while its thermal stability withstands high-temperature/ high-RPM breakdown to resist deposit formations that can starve TDI systems of lubrication.

SERVICE LIFE

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

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.

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).

Turbo motor

Purchase this oil and oil filter for my turbo charged mini Cooper. I have used premium synthetic motor oil from different manufacturers for a long time. However when I changed to this oil I could Immediately hear the difference. The motor definitely ran quieter and has stayed quiet since using Amsoil. Thank you for a superior product.

My VW TDI runs amazing with Amsoil European

It's always hard to find a quality American made oil that meets European Manufacturer oil standards. Amsoil European exceeds those standards. I trust this oil in both of my German diesels, a 2005 VW TDI and a 2009 BMW X5 35d. Even at -25* during the polar vortex of the Chicago winter this oil did it's job to protect my engines.

Great oil

Long time ago when I was using Mobil one (at leat 15 years ago) my friend was trying to convince me to switch to Amsoil. What made me switch is this guy has taken samples from two of his cars and mailed to the lab. The lab showed us that the car with Amsoil, 60k miles, and 6k on oil is estimated to be 20k car with 2k synthetic oil, while other sample was spot on. So I switched. And never had any engine failures, even in vehicles over 200k. The ESP keeps my diesel egr clean, while other oils in same engines cause lots of ash/carbon build up.

Amsoil is the best.

I have found in using Amsoil that with great protection also comes great gas mileage. When I made the switch, my gas mileage went from 31mpg to 35mpg. I'm also able to go longer between changes.
