Amsoil Reformulates European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil

Amsoil Inc. has reformulated its European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil to further meet the lubrication needs of modern European gasoline and diesel cars and light trucks.

A new name goes along with the new formulation: Amsoil European Car Formula 5W-30 Improved Emission System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil.

The company says the new formulation provides outstanding performance and protection for high-performance vehicles made by Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche and more.

In addition to those previously offered, the new formulation now meets the following performance specifications:

* Chrysler MS-11106 (Eco Diesel);

* ACEA C3; and

* GM dexos2 (Diesel).

Amsoil European Car Formula 5W-30 Improved Emission System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil meets strict ACEA and VW HT/HS requirements, according to the company. Its mid-sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS) formulation promotes optimum emissions system performance and life, resulting in reduced maintenance costs. Friction modifiers and the lighter 5W-30 viscosity reduce friction for increased energy through-put to maximize fuel economy. 

The new formulation also:

* provides excellent deposit control and outstanding wear protection for gasoline- and diesel-fueled engines;

* is formulated to stay in grade throughout the extended drain intervals recommended by European automakers;

* is thermally stable to keep oil passages clean and promote fluid circulation so turbo bearings stay cool and lubricated;

* provides enhanced turbocharger protection in all temperature extremes, while its thermal stability withstands high-temperature/high-rpm breakdown; and

* has a low pour point to protect turbochargers against oil starvation and ensure rapid oil pressure in sub-zero conditions.

The company recommends Amsoil European Car Formula 5W-30 Improved Emission System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil for gasoline or diesel vehicles requiring any of the following performance specifications:

  • API SN
  • Chrysler MS-11106 (Eco Diesel) 
  • ACEA C3
  • GM dexos2 (Diesel)
  • VW 504.00/507.00
  • Mercedes-Benz 229.51
  • BMW LL-04
  • Porsche C30
