A Low-SAPS, Low-Viscosity Formula for European Gasoline and Diesel Engines
MSOIL EUROPEAN CAR FORMULA 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil provides exceptional performance and
protection for high-performance European vehicles made by Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes-Benz,
BMW, Porsche and more. Its low-viscosity formulation maximizes fuel efficiency without
compromising engine protection, while meeting strict European performance requirements for
gasoline and direct-injection diesel engines designed for low-viscosity oils. Formulated
with low sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS), AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30
Synthetic Motor Oil complies with modern emissions systems to provide optimum life and
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.
Sophisticated European engines subject oil to severe operational conditions. Oils must
demonstrate excellent high-temperature/high-shear (HT/HS) performance to maintain viscosity
and provide adequate engine protection. AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor
Oil is engineered to stay in grade despite rigorous operation throughout the extended drain
intervals European automakers recommend. Formulated with a select additive package and
shear-stable synthetic base oils, it meets strict ACEA and VW HT/HS requirements to provide
outstanding wear protection throughout the entire drain interval.
Excessive sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS) in motor oil can harm modern exhaust
treatment devices. Diesel particulate filters (DPFs), for example, require low-SAPS motor
oil to resist filter plugging. AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil’s
low-SAPS formulation promotes optimum emissions system performance and life, allowing
reduced maintenance costs.
Maximum Fuel Economy
AMSOIL European Car Formula is engineered with a lighter 5W-30 viscosity and friction
modifiers to reduce friction for increased energy through-put. It minimizes internal
engine drag, providing an alternative for motorists currently using heavier-grade oils,
but who desire maximum fuel efficiency.
Enhanced Turbocharger Protection
Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) engines commonly used in European vehicles require
thermally stable oils that resist deposit formation and provide turbocharger cooling.
Thermally stable oils help keep oil passages clean and promote fluid circulation so
turbo bearings stay cool and lubricated.
AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil provides protection and performance
for TDI systems in all temperature extremes. Its low pour point protects turbochargers
against oil starvation and ensures rapid oil pressure in sub-zero conditions, while its
thermal stability withstands high-temperature/high-RPM breakdown to resist deposit formations
that can starve TDI systems of lubrication.
AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil is formulated to meet or exceed the
most demanding European specifications. It is recommended for European gasoline or diesel
vehicles requiring any of the following performance specifications:
- VW 504.00/507.00
- ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4
- Mercedes-Benz 229.51
- BMW LL-04
- Porsche C30
Recommended for the extended drain intervals established by the vehicle manufacturer.
Change oil filter at time of oil change.
AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic 5W-30 Motor Oil is compatible with conventional
and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten
the oil’s life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support
extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.
Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.
