 Superior Protection and Performance for Gasoline and Diesel European Vehicles


AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil is specially formulated for the lubrication needs of European gasoline and diesel cars and light trucks. Formulated with advanced AMSOIL polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetic base stocks, premium additives and a broad 5W-40 viscosity rating. AMSOIL 5W-40 allows motorists to take advantage of the maximum extended drain intervals recommended by European automakers while providing second-to-none protection and performance in the most demanding operating conditions. Product Code: (AFL)

Maximum Engine Protection AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil surpasses the North American SAE and European ACEA oil specifications for high temperature/high shear (HTHS) viscosity. It does not shear back to a lower viscosity oil in the high temperature/high shear conditions of today’s smaller, high RPM automobile engines. AMSOIL 5W-40 contains high quality anti-wear additives for superior engine protection. It resists the damaging effects of heat, blowby chemicals and oxidation for extended drain intervals, providing cool, clean and efficient engine performance.Reduced Oil Consumption AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil does not vaporize (burn off) in the high temperatures that vaporize conventional motor oils. It provides consistent high temperature protection, improved fuel economy and reduced oil consumption and emissions.Provides Low Temperature Protection AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil remains fluid at temperatures as frigid as -59°F (-51°C), permitting easy engine cranking for fast starts and immediate start-up protection, greatly reducing engine wear and prolonging engine life.Prevents Rust and Corrosion AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil contains special rust and corrosion inhibitors to protect iron parts, as well as copper, lead and aluminum bearing materials. Meets or exceeds the following specifications for domestic and foreign gasoline engines:
  • API SL, CI-4, CF
  • ACEA A3, B3, B4
  • BMW LL-01/98
  • Daimler Chrysler 229.3, 229.4, 229.5
  • Opel Long Life Service Fill GM-LL-A-025
  • Opel Diesel Service ill GM-LL-B-025
  • Porsche
  • Volvo
  • Saab
  • Volkswagen 502.00, 505.00, 503.01

AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil surpasses the most demanding European oil specifications. It is recommended for European gasoline and diesel vehicles, including but not limited to, Saab, Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Land Rover, Opel, Mini Cooper, BMW, Peugeot and Porsche.

Mixing AMSOIL AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil is compatible with conventional petroleum oils; however, AMSOIL mixed with conventional oils is not recommended for extended drain intervals. Engine oil additives or after-market products are not recommended for use with AMSOIL 5W-40. Caution: Continuous contact with used oil has caused skin cancer in lab animals. Avoid prolonged skin contact. Avoid eye contact. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Flush eyes with water for 15 minutes in case of contact. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Contact a physician immediately. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. Don’t pollute. Return used oil to collection centers.
