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).

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.
