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.

Superior Engine Cleanliness

The excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency properties of AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil help keep engines clean. It is specially designed to prevent sludge and varnish deposits for reduced oil consumption, extended engine life and maximum overall performance.

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.

All-Season Performance

The broad 5W-40 viscosity rating, low volatility (burn-off) and wax-free nature of AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil make it excellent for hot and cold temperatures. It helps reduce engine wear, control oil thickening and provide easier cold starts.

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

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.

SERVICE LIFE

Recommended for the extended drain intervals established by the vehicle manufacturer. Change oil filter at time of oil change.

Great choice for gasoline powered European vehicles

I have a 2003 Audi A4 with a 1.8 liter Turbo engine. One inherent problem with this engine is, it's hard to get the rings to seat properly. It is not uncommon to use a quart of oil in 1500 miles. My mechanic told me, don't baby this engine, drive it like you stole it! So I change the oil to the newly formulated Amsoil 5W 40 European blend, and went on a road trip. The next time I added a quart of oil was 3000 miles later, and as a bonus, I was getting 2.5 MPG better fuel mileage!
I bought this car used two years ago, and switched it to Amsoil shortly after I got it. I change my own oil, so I know what it looks like when I drain it and I can tell you that the Amsoil really cleans very well too.
I very much trust the quality of the Amsoil products, and would urge you to try them yourselves. It has proven to be well worth the money!

Best Oil for my 2017 Volkswagen Jetta!!

Best oil for the buck for my Turbo 1.4L engine - my average gas mileage (approx 38 mpg) now exceeds EPA estimated MPG for my vehicle - will continue to use it for the life of my vehicle to ensure the best gas mileage and performance possible. I use their product in almost all of my engines....

Great synthetic really helps with engine performance.

I've used Amsoil 5W-40 in my 2003 Passat station wagon for most of the 100K miles it's been driven. The 2.8L V-6 always idled rough and the dealership had no suggestions as to how to improve things. The only product I tried that helped was Amsoil synthetic oil and so I stuck with it. The dealership recently did an assessment of my vehicle and said the engine was "pristine" inside. It still has amazing pick up and burns very little oil between changes. I'm really pleased with the product and will stick with it. Highly recommended.
