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

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.

Great choice for gasoline powered European vehicles

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

I have a 2003 Audi A4 with a 1.8 liter Turbo engine. One inherent problem with this engine is, it's hard to get the rings to seat properly. It is not uncommon to use a quart of oil in 1500 miles. My mechanic told me, don't baby this engine, drive it like you stole it! So I change the oil to the newly formulated Amsoil 5W 40 European blend, and went on a road trip. The next time I added a quart of oil was 3000 miles later, and as a bonus, I was getting 2.5 MPG better fuel mileage!
I bought this car used two years ago, and switched it to Amsoil shortly after I got it. I change my own oil, so I know what it looks like when I drain it and I can tell you that the Amsoil really cleans very well too.
I very much trust the quality of the Amsoil products, and would urge you to try them yourselves. It has proven to be well worth the money!

I plan on using this oil for as long as I own my Audi

By 

from Ponte Vedra Beach FL

Verified Buyer

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

With a factory oil change recommended every 10k I like having the piece of mind of knowing the oil in my crank case is holding up and not breaking down. I have seen first hand factory recommended castrol start to sludge just before the recommended oil change interval especially in hot climates in NV and AZ.
