Product Highlights View Full Description

AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil provides exceptional performance and protection for gasoline and diesel European vehicles. It meets a wide variety of specifications and carries multiple manufacturer approvals. European Car Formula features a broad range of viscosities and different levels of emissions system protection to keep sensitive emissions systems operating efficiently.

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.

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.

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.

Superior Engine Cleanliness
The excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency properties of AMSOIL European Car Formula help keep engines clean. It is specifically designed to prevent sludge and varnish deposits, reduce oil consumption, extend engine life and provide maximum performance.

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

The only thing I ever put in German cars.

By 

from Greensburg, PA, Painesville, OH.

Verified Buyer

Comments about European Car Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor Oil:

This oil works great in my Mercedes, BMW, and my mom's Audi. Valvetrain got much quieter and can hardly hear any noise from the timing chain. Had the valve cover gaskets replaced recently on a BMW and the head was so clean you could eat out of it. Definitely a great product. Oh and I do my oil changes every 15,000 miles.

Great synthetic really helps with engine performance.

Comments about European Car Formula 5W-40 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil:

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.

Amsoil is always trustworthy!

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about European Car Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil:

I have used Amsoil for years because of its reliability and recently converted my 2014 Dodge Ram EcoDiesel over to Amsoil European Car Formula 5W-30. Although my vehicle only has 32,000+ miles on it now, I have noticed a slight increase in fuel mileage in town and on the highway. I will continue to use Amsoil for the life of this vehicle.

The oil that can resist sludge in Audi engines

By 

from New Jersey

Verified Buyer

Comments about European Car Formula 0W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor Oil:

I use this product in the winter for my 2001 Audi 1.8T quattro equipped car because I live on a mountain. The temperatures in the winter time are always 5+/- degrees from an average temperature of 28* degrees in the season so having a superior oil is no exception, its the rule. Since my car is genuine factory turbo car it doesn't play nice with oil at ALL. This particular model was issued a sludge warning from Audi because of the destructive forces of heat from the turbocharger. I can call myself a spirited driver because I dont drive slow unless there is traffic on the road so therefore I am putting this oil and engine under stress at times. The oil protected my car from catastrophic failure when OEM K03 turbo went out at 175k miles. It also cleaned out factory oil cooler, now my engine temps are always at 205* degrees. The valve-train is very quiet at 178k miles and you barely hear any hydraulic lifter noises at all. You really get what you pay for! Only con about this oil is that it is not readily available in local stores or vendors since they do not stock up on it. I would recommend this oil to anyone who maintains their German vehicle to a high degree.

Only bad part is they have moved away from selling this in liters so now instead of buying one liter to Chance oil two have to buy one gallon and a quart.
