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 right product at the right price for VW

By 

from Gainesville, VA

Verified Buyer

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

I use this in both VW's for the wife and daughter. It meets the required specs for the engine and has reduced the oil consumption that VW 4 cylinder engines are famous for. Combined with the EA oil filter, lab tests show no problems with the 10,000 mile service interval.

Never had a oiling issue and change it every 7500 miles. Price is right as my car only needs VW 502.1 oil. Why pay more for lower SAPS oil?

Making a great car better

By 

from Bismarck, North Dakota

Verified Buyer

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

I recently purchased a Porsche Panamera and had read that the v8 engine in this particular model was thirsty on oil. After several months of driving it was apparent that some of these observations were true. The previous owner of the car had it serviced at a dealership and they had used the recommended brand of oil at that time. I decided to switch to Amsoil as soon as possible, as I use it in all of my vehicles and small engines and have done for several years now. The car immediately reduced its oil consumption. Not only that but here in North Dakota this winter, we have experienced extreme temperatures in the minus 20's and the car has started perfectly and run like a dream.
I continue to be impressed with the tangible performance enhancements I get with Amsoil products. I have an STI Impreza and a Lotus Elise that I drive competitively and Amsoil has protected them through several seasons of autocrossing and track days. I have heard of several turbo failures from other STI owners who race but I am convinced that my European Formula oil protects me from those kinds of mishaps. Thank you for a range of high quality products.

Handles freezing cold to really hot!

By

Verified Buyer

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

We run this in our 2006 VW Passat and 2001 VW Eurovan. It's great in both vehicles, especially in our Canadian winter where it gets down to -30 to -35 Celsius. In the winter we drive the van down to Phoenix and the oil handles the outside temperature changes superbly.

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

I used this oil in a 2012 VW Passat and changed it after 6 months and 6,700 miles on it. I was very impressed with this oil, it looked like it could have gone a few thousand more miles. Great purchase.
