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).

Absolutely

I love this brand. I have now switched 2 cars over to this product. One has over 200k miles. I can feel the difference in the amount of pick up and how much smoother the engine shifts. I will never use any other product in any of my vehicles again. The distributor I buy from is extremely customer oriented and makes sure I am happy and everything is going well. Thank you again for making such an amazing product.

Happy with the product, not happy with the process

I paid my Amsoil annual membership while inArizona this past winter and ordered some product. W(en I came back to Canada I sent an order to Toronto Canada and when it arrived I discovered that it came from the USA. This particular order of o8l and filter came in one shipment. This past week I received a "past due" notice for $27.00 and change. I contacted Amsoil and was told that the bill had been "split" and there was a balance remaining due. Not real happy about this process and it's not about the money, it's the principle.

AMSOIL should be renamed Amazing Oil

Been using this product in my 2011 Audi A4, never had any issues, engine runs smoothly at all times, inside of engine is very clean. Drained oil after 10,000 miles, had it tested and still could be used for 2-5k miles... I will always use AMSoil in all my vehicles!
