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).

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.
