Product Description

European Car Formula 5W-40 Classic Emissions System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil (EFM) Full-SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil is specially formulated for the lubrication needs of European gasoline and diesel cars and light trucks. Its full sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS) formulation provides excellent protection and performance for a wide range of vehicles.

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.

Full-SAPS Formulation for Maximum Engine Protection

AMSOIL European Car Formula contains high-quality anti-wear additives and surpasses the tough ACEA oil specifications for high-temperature/high-shear (HT/HS) viscosity. 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 5W-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.

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.

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

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.

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).

European Car Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor Oil

Ordered this oil for my 99 Limited Edition E320 AMG. This Oil is definitely better than the German made, Castrol Edge A3/B4 Full Synthetic 0W40 oil, which I have been using for a few years.
Just my 2 cents...

Great oil

I drive VW with 2.0T engine. This engine is known for consuming oil that many owners experience. I'm not one of them but I was only running it on amsoil 5w40 as long as I own the car. Sold previous one being 8.5 years old and no consumption between changes. New one is the same thing but it's only 4 years old now. After all I'm very happy about this oil

Love this stuff

I run the 5w40 on my built Subaru ej257 Sti I have to say I love this oil works great and had no issues. I also used the 30w breaking in when I was breaking in the motor. I have also have oil analysis done of the 5w40 and came back with nothing but positive comments. I always refer my friends to amsoil.

I plan on using this oil for as long as I own my Audi

With a factory oil change recommended every 10k I like having the piece of mind of knowing the oil in my crank case is holding up and not breaking down. I have seen first hand factory recommended castrol start to sludge just before the recommended oil change interval especially in hot climates in NV and AZ.

I have been using this in my 2000 Mercedes E320 for years. I now have over 300k miles on the vehicle. This is the best oil by far.
