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.

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).

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.

Longevity, ease of starting.

I've run this for 2yrs in my 1.8T Jetta, I do a year between changes using 25K oil filter. Oil comes out looking great after a year, and starts great on cold Illinois mornings.

This product is all that I use in my 98 MB Diesel.

I have nearly 300,000 miles on my Benz diesel and it is still functioning efficiently. It doesn't use any oil or show indications of any excessive wear.

Amsoil Longevity

I purchased a 1987 Mercedes station wagon in 1991. The car had about 100,000 on the odometer at the time of purchase. I started using Amsoil products including the remote bypass filters, air filter and oil filters. In January 2015 we junked the car. The odometer showed that the car had been driven just over 767,000 miles. We work in the construction industry and deal with a technical service for air conditioning on commercial buildings. We commonly travel about twelve southeastern states; therefore the high mileage driven. At the end of this car's life the engine still did not burn over one half a quart of oil with the change intervals as much as twenty thousand miles. The transmission still shifted perfectly and only the oil in the rear axle was changed about every one hundred thousand miles. The remainder of the car was a " RAG " for lack of a more descriptive word.
As far as I am concerned there is " NO " equal to Amsoil products. We have had and are having similar experiences with the other vehicles we drive. ie..........2001 Ford Powerstroke 7.3 Diesel, 2007 Mercedes E350 wagon, 2013 Volvo SUV and even my personal car a Mercedes S600 V-12 493 HP .

Great performance in an aging Passat!

My 2003 Passat V-6 station wagon idled rather roughly from the very beginning. The dealership said it was "all within specification" and offered no suggestion as to what might help smooth things out. I tried injection cleaner, octane booster, new plugs, all to no avail. I eventually tried using AMSOIL 5W-40 (the recommended formulation for my engine...) and was surprised at the smoothness of the idle as well as the added pep in acceleration. I've never looked back. Now, at 100K miles I swear by this formulation, change every 5000 miles, and burn less than a quart between changes. To be fair, changing to an oil impregnated air filter also gave my engine better air flow, which never hurts. I love everything about my Passat (it's still in great shape...) so I'm indebted to AMSOIL for smoothing out that rough idle and helping to improve the overall performance.
