Product Description
European Car Formula 0W-40 Classic Emissions System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil (EFO) Full-SAPS formulation for maximum engine protection. AMSOIL European Car Formula contains high-quality anti-wear additives and surpasses tough vehicle-manufacturer oil specifications. It provides outstanding protection in high-rpm, hot-running engines and delivers dependable long-term performance for the extended drain intervals recommended by European vehicle manufacturers.

Superior Engine Cleanliness
The excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency properties of AMSOIL European Car Formula help keep engines clean. It is specially designed to prevent sludge and varnish deposits, reduce oil consumption, extend engine life and provide maximum overall performance.

All-Season Performance
The broad 0W-40 viscosity rating, low volatility (burn-off) and wax-free nature of AMSOIL European Car Formula make it excellent for hot and cold temperatures. It helps reduce engine wear, control oil thickening and provide easier cold starts.

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

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.

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL European Car Formula is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will reduce the performance benefits.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.

Service Life
Recommended for the extended drain intervals established by the vehicle manufacturer. Change oil filter at time of oil change.

The oil that can resist sludge in Audi engines

I use this product in the winter for my 2001 Audi 1.8T quattro equipped car because I live on a mountain. The temperatures in the winter time are always 5+/- degrees from an average temperature of 28* degrees in the season so having a superior oil is no exception, its the rule. Since my car is genuine factory turbo car it doesn't play nice with oil at ALL. This particular model was issued a sludge warning from Audi because of the destructive forces of heat from the turbocharger. I can call myself a spirited driver because I dont drive slow unless there is traffic on the road so therefore I am putting this oil and engine under stress at times. The oil protected my car from catastrophic failure when OEM K03 turbo went out at 175k miles. It also cleaned out factory oil cooler, now my engine temps are always at 205* degrees. The valve-train is very quiet at 178k miles and you barely hear any hydraulic lifter noises at all. You really get what you pay for! Only con about this oil is that it is not readily available in local stores or vendors since they do not stock up on it. I would recommend this oil to anyone who maintains their German vehicle to a high degree.

Making a great car better

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.

Robust European Car 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.

I will always purchase this brand. It's the best.

How about more power and slightly better gas mileage for my 2010 GLK350 Benz? I don't need to say anymore.
