European performance and styling define a culture of exceptional engineering. AMSOIL matches that devotion to precision by engineering oil that exceeds the demands of your European vehicle. When excellence is required, you need AMSOIL.
Synthetic oils, though more expensive than natural options, allow you more mileage between oil changes, perform better at lower and higher temperatures, and also are designed to help clean your engine, keeping it free from build-up.
AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil delivers long-lasting performance and protection in gasoline and diesel European cars/light trucks, letting you confidently take advantage of the maximum extended drain intervals recommended by European automakers today. Not only does European Car Formula deliver the value of extended drains, it helps save on maintenance due to its outstanding wear protection and all-season performance. European Car Formula is formulated for optimum fuel economy, and advanced turbocharger protection which helps reduce maintenance costs.
AMSOIL European Car Formula Features and Benefits
Ryan Kimble has been using AMSOIL products in his 2003 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T since he purchased it with 24,000 miles on it. He put AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-40 Full SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil (EFM) in the engine and never looked back. "The only oil I have ever, or will ever, use is AMSOIL" Kimble said.
According to Kimble, a common problem among Wolkswagen owners with the 1.8T is oil sludge, which causes premature turbo and engine failure well in advance of reaching 100,000 miles. Kimble, on the other hand, has never experienced problems with sludge.
Kimble noted, "I have never seen any other brand of oil look as good after 8,000 miles as AMSOIL." He also compared the performance and protection of AMSOIL products to other brands and said, "I use nothing but AMSOIL lubricants in all my vehicles for every lubricant. Don't waste you money on anything else."
To ensure proper engine protection and optimal emissions system performance and life, it is important to use an oil that meets the recommended specification listed in the vehicles owner's manual.
