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).

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.

Great Oil

I use this stuff in my 08 E350 4Matic. I commute 150 miles a day to NYC and back. Stop and go traffic combined with high mileage can take its toll quick so I need Oil that can handle it.
This stuff is great. I feel a noticeable difference in performance. Not to mention the oil is still relatively clean when I change it after 8k miles.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking for good engine protection.

The best of the best

i buy my vehicles and typically keep them for 10 years or 200K miles. most are used for towing and not what you would call lite duty applications. the other vehicles are high performance euro cars. Amsoil is the best of the best and has never failed me. i use the Amsoil products in everything from brake fluid to grease to oil, diff oil etc... none of my vehicles use, consume, or burn oil after 200,000 miles running amsoil. what more proof do i need than that?
