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 oil, but too much $$$$

It seams to be a great oil but just doesn't add to any savings when following VWs oil change intervals as suggested on the Amsoil website.

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

The engines in my car are know to be on the noisy side due to their lifter design. This oil has greatly helped in reducing the noise.
Also this oil tends to stay very clean even tho it's being used in a turbo engine.

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

Bought this as recommended for my 2002 1.8t Jetta. Cold starting, smooth idle and generally quieter operation is all good. These engines consume a little oil. Consumption did NOT go up. Will buy again and again.
