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.

New car, AMSOIL is the only brand I will use!

After doing significant research on all the data sheets and testing, I started using AMSOIL products 17 years ago. I haven't looked back since then. We recently purchased a new VW Passat for my Wife and at 500 miles, I changed the engine oil over to the European Car Formula 5-40W Synthetic. With a long track history using AMSOIL products in all my other vehicles, I have every confidence that the VW will last reliably for many years to come!

560,000 miles

I have used this oil in the motor since the car was new. Utilizing oil analysis I determined a change frequency of 10,000 miles with filter. At 320,000 miles dealer completed a compression test and the readings matched that of a new motor. If you do the math, it is actually more cost effective to use Amsoil. I use Amsoil in all my vehicles and gas powered equipment right down to the gear box/differential in the front of my snow blower.

Makes my VW happy

Bought this as recommended for my 2002 1.8t Jetta. Cold starting, smooth idle and generally quieter operation is all good. These engines consume a little oil. Consumption did NOT go up. Will buy again and again.

Great oil, but too much $$$$

It seams to be a great oil but just doesn't add to any savings when following VWs oil change intervals as suggested on the Amsoil website.

Amsoil Euro Oil

I like it. Started using it in my VW GTI and I noticed that the oil looked cleaner than Castrol with similar mileage and driving habits.
