AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil

AMSOIL 5W-40 European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil

Superior Protection and Performance
for European Gasoline and Diesel Vehicles

Product Code: AFL

NOTE: AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-40 100% Synthetic Motor Oil has been newly reformulated to meet VW 505.01, Mercedes-Benz 229.51 and BMW LL-04 specifications.

AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil is specially formulated for the lubrication needs of European gasoline and diesel cars and light trucks. Formulated with advanced AMSOIL polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetic base stocks, premium additives and a broad 5W-40 viscosity rating. AMSOIL 5W-40 allows motorists to take advantage of the maximum extended drain intervals recommended by European automakers while providing second-to-none protection and performance in the most demanding operating conditions.


NOTE: AMSOIL 5W-40 European Engine Oil is now available in 5 Liter bottles (Product Code: AFL5L-EA). See product list below.

Maximum Engine Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil surpasses the North American SAE and European ACEA oil specifications for high temperature/high shear (HTHS) viscosity. It does not shear back to a lower viscosity oil in the high temperature/high shear conditions of today's smaller, high RPM automobile engines. AMSOIL 5W-40 contains high quality anti-wear additives for superior engine protection. It resists the damaging effects of heat, blowby chemicals and oxidation for extended drain intervals, providing cool, clean and
efficient engine performance.

Reduced Oil Consumption
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil does not vaporize (burn off) in the high temperatures that vaporize conventional motor oils. It provides consistent high temperature protection, improved fuel economy and reduced oil consumption and emissions.

Provides Low Temperature Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil remains fluid at temperatures as frigid as -59°F (-51°C), permitting easy engine cranking for fast starts and immediate start-up protection, greatly reducing engine wear and prolonging engine life.

Prevents Rust and Corrosion
AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil contains special rust and corrosion inhibitors to protect iron parts, as well as copper, lead and aluminum bearing materials.
