New European Car Formula Provides Superior Protection for High-Performance European Vehicles
March 18th, 2011:
New AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W30 Synthetic Motor Oil (AEL) provides exceptional performance and protection for high-performance European vehicles manufactured by Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche and more. Owners of vehicles requiring an oil meeting the VW 504300/507.00 specification are actively seeking appropriate products, and AMSOIL European Car Formula 5230 is one of only a few oils available in North America that meets the VW 504.00/507.00 specification. The 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 5W30 complies with modern emissions systems to provide optimum life and performance.
Sophisticated European engines subject oil to severe operations conditions. Oils must demonstrate excellent high-temperature/high-shear (HT/HS) performance to maintain viscosity and provide adequate engine protection. AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W30 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 and is recommended for the longest drain interval recommended by the manufacturer.
Low SAPS Formulation
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 help prevent filter plugging. AMSOIL European Car Formula's low-SAPS formulation promotes optimum emissions system performance and life, reducing maintenance costs.
Maximum Fuel Economy
AMSOIL European Car Formula is engineered with a 5W30 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 adequate 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 provides protection and performance for TDI systems in all temperature extremes. Its low pour point protects turbo charges 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 formulations that starve TDI systems of lubrication.
AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W30 Synthetic Motor Oil is available in quarts, five liter jugs and drums. It is recommended for European gasoline or diesel vehicles requiring any of the following worldwide specifications: VW 504.00/507.00, ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4, Mercedes-Benz 229.51, BMW LL-04, Porsche C30
Why Carry This Oil?
AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W30 Synthetic Motor Oil is one of only a few oils available In North America that meets the VW504.00/507.00 specification. VW and other European vehicle owners have a difficult time finding oils that meet this specification.
