Amsoil 5W-40 European motor oil


  • Delivers 100% synthetic engine protection for advanced automotive technology.
  • Thermally stable oil formulation resists deposit formation and cools turbochargers.
  • Formulated for long drain intervals recommended by European automakers.


Excellent For Turbochargers

AMSOIL European Motor Oil has a robust composition that shields engines from the
high temperatures produced by turbochargers. Its thermally stable oil formulation
resists deposit formation and cools turbochargers. Its low pour point protects
turbochargers against oil starvation in subzero temperatures and ensures a rapid
return to appropriate oil pressure at startup.

Superior Engine Cleanliness

AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil delivers excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency to help 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

The mid-SAPS formulation is designed to protect newer vehicle emissions control systems. It meets current industry and vehicle manufacturer requirements for long-life protection of catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters (DPF).

All-Season Performance

The broad 5W-40 viscosity rating, low volatility (burn-off) and wax-free formulation make AMSOIL European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil excellent for extreme hot and cold temperatures. It helps control oil thickening for easier starts and maximum startup protection, while resisting elevated heat for long-lasting performance.

AMSOIL 100% Synthetic European Motor Oil is compatible with other synthetic and conventional motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL
motor oil with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce its performance benefits. AMSOIL does
not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils. It’s just a dumb thing to do!

  • AMSOIL European 5W 30

    By  TIM,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Denver  on  August 19, 2021

    My mechanic calls AMSOIL a religion! I call it the best oil on earth. My 2009 TDI Jetta has 292,000 miles on um – no oil leaks, does not burn a drop of oil. Just had to replace the turbo plan to get 500k plus miles on um. Change oil and filter 7500 or 5000 miles.

    I have a golf r mk7 running 91oct with 410+ ho to the wheels and daily driven. I’ve been running this oil for the last 10+ oil changes and no issues. Car runs solid. Doesn’t burn oil nor have any oil issues of any kind.
  • THE ONLY MOTOR OILBy  NEIL,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Carlsbad, NM  on  November 26, 2021
    Been using Amsoil in my 2011 Harly since the first oil change. It now has 177,000 miles. Just bought a 2006 Porsche w/37,000 miles. They recommend Mobil 1 but I wont use anything but Amsoil. Cheap insurance!
    Bottom Line – I’d buy again!!

    Had a wicked lifter sticking (common on M113), after an oil change with AMSOIL it’s practically gone. I’m hoping it continues to get better. Im so happy with the product I just ordered more for my other car. If you’re having a hard time paying more for this oil, I get it; but if you have a similar problem as me, just try it – my guess is you’ll be happy!
