European Car Formula Synthetic
5W-30 Motor Oil (AEL)
A Low-SAPS, Low-Viscosity Formula for European Gasoline and Diesel Engines
Package sizes include:
1-Quart Bottles (case of 12)
5-Liter Bottles (case of 2)
AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Low-SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil provides exceptional performance and
protection for high-performance European vehicles. Its low-viscosity formulation maximizes fuel efficiency without
compromising engine protection, while meeting strict European performance requirements for gasoline and
direct-injection diesel engines calling for a 5W-30 oil. 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 performance.
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
• VW 504.00/507.00
• 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
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.
