Maximum Engine Protection
AMSOIL European Car Formula contains high-quality anti-wear additives and surpasses the tough ACEA oil specifications for high-temperature/high-shear viscosity.

Superior Engine Cleanliness
AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil possesses excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency properties to 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.

Minimizes Exhaust Emissions
The mid-SAPS formulation of AMSOIL European Car Formula is designed to protect newer vehicle emissions control systems. It meets current industry and vehicle manufacturer requirements for long-life protection of gasoline vehicle catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters (DPF).

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.
