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.

HEALTH & SAFETY
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Take my money!

I've had a few cars over the years, studebaker, Ford, Jeep, Kia, and bmw to name a few. I've also used many brands of oil. Amsoil is the smoothest I've used. The cars run better, the engine is clean, and I've had better mileage due to the clean lubricating properties of the oil. I even put amsoil in my chainsaw, trimmer (mix with fuel) and lawn mowers. I also use their antifreeze In the car and pickup. I never have an issue with oil, and amsoil personnel are always the most helpful, kind; and when I'm having difficulty with a project, patient people I could ask to work with.
Go amsoil!

I run this in my 2002 Mini Cooper S (R53). After trying a few different brands the Amsoil seems the best as far as gas mileage, keeps the motor running a little cooler and no burn off of any oil. This is the only oil I'd use on this car.

From race bike to SUV

I started using Amsoil after a friend of mine who's racing cars told me about how he thought Amsoil had some of the best products around when it comes to lubrication. I started using it in my Aprilia RSV4 1000 cc race motorcycle. Not only are shifts smoother but overall the engine felt smoother and ran better. First oil change proved the oil to be in better condition and kept more viscosity than any oil I used before. I now use it in my Porsche Cayman S and SUV too with the same result and I can only say I trust Amsoil's products for all my lubrication, cooling and braking. Thanks to Amsoil for such great products at very attractive pricing.

Like it but requires top up between changes.

Noticeable difference however requires top ups between changes. Using the factory pennzoil euro does not use any oil between changes. The difference in quality from the specs makes the extra oil from Amsoil usage acceptable.

Maintenance Guru

I run a fleet of diesel trucks from Mitsubishi box trucks to Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans and simply put there is not a better product line of maintenance products for vehicles. Personally, I recall one of the trucks coming back to me with with just 1 quart of oil left in it and the engine was still running great. To me that is all the testimony I need to believe.
Another little fact is that the first time I did use Amsoil was on my 2005 Mitsubishi 14' box truck and it went from getting 11 MPG to 14 MPG. I then put Amsoil in my personal gas engine vehicles and I did not see any difference in gas mileage. Regardless, I use it because it protects the most expensive parts in my vehicle, engine, transmission, brake, power steering etc...

Average oil

I had this oil lab tested after 6,500 miles. Results were all excellent but one. The viscosity had been reduced from 40w to 30w. Consequently I had to change the oil at that time. I have a brand new car with a turbo charged engine.
I will try other oils as this oil is not worth the premium price.

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.
