oil specifications for high temperature/high shear viscosity. It provides outstanding protection in high RPM, hot
running engines and delivers dependable long-term performance for the extended drain intervals set by European
Superior Engine Cleanliness
The excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency properties of AMSOIL Synthetic European Car
Formula keep engines clean. It is specially designed to prevent sludge and varnish deposits for reduced oil
consumption, extended engine life and maximum overall performance.
Minimizes Exhaust Emissions
AMSOIL European Car Formula is designed for newer vehicle emission control systems. It meets current industry and
vehicle manufacturer requirements for long life protection of gasoline vehicle catalytic converters and diesel
particulate filters (DPF).
All Season Performance
The broad 5W-40 viscosity rating, low volatility (burn-off) and wax free nature of AMSOIL Synthetic European Car
Formula make it excellent for hot and cold temperatures. Engine wear is reduced, oil thickening is controlled and
vehicles start easier in cold temperatures.
AMSOIL 100% Synthetic European Car Formula is formulated to
surpass the most demanding European specifications. It is recommended for European and North American gasoline or
diesel vehicles requiring any of the following worldwide specifications:
- API SN/SM
