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.

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

I drive VW with 2.0T engine. This engine is known for consuming oil that many owners experience. I'm not one of them but I was only running it on amsoil 5w40 as long as I own the car. Sold previous one being 8.5 years old and no consumption between changes. New one is the same thing but it's only 4 years old now. After all I'm very happy about this oil

Best Oil

By

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

I purchased a 2003 Audi S8 5 years ago which had 120,000 miles on it.
I was an ASE Master mechanic for many years and still do a lot of work on my vehicles.
When it was time for me to do my first oil change on this Audi, I did some research on forums and such.
I decided on using Ravenol synthetic oil. When I first bought the car it had a slight ticking noise which sounded to me like a lifter or tappet. I thought using a premium synthetic oil would solve the problem. But, this car has 40 valves, ( 8 cylinder x 5 valves per cylinder), and after about 3 oil changes the noise got worse. Also I was using about 2 quarts of oil per 5000 miles change intervals.
I heard a lot of good things about Amsoil, so I decided to try it in my Audi.
In less than 1000 miles the noise went away and has not come back since. Now I am using no extra oil between oil changes and the car has 190,000 plus miles.
I now use Amsoil in my Corvette, my Honda ATV, my Harley, my front-end loader and my fleet of 3 Ford step vans.
This oil is the best I have ever used. Yes, it may cost a little more up front, but what you will save down the road is worth it.
