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.

Decade experience

I've been using this particular grade for the last decade and I'm very happy with the performance which it provides. Less burn out from blow by and greater performance with the turbo. The car has just over 200k miles and I can feel the get go every key turn I do . If you "drive it without mercy" this fluid will flow with the smile on your face. Hope you can process that I'm very pleased.🏎

Amazing product for winter

The hydraulic lifters are known to be noisy in Mitsubishi cars. This oil was able to get to the lifters in -30C on a 25 year engine and help keep the engine quite.

This is my go to winter oil! I Highly recommend it.
