Emissions System Protection

AMSOIL European Motor Oil features precisely balanced formulations that consider the needs of modern exhaust treatment devices. Protecting sensitive emissions systems depends on using the optimal blend of SAPS (sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur). AMSOIL European Motor Oil is carefully crafted in six varieties to ensure proper emissions system function.

Superior Engine Cleanliness

The excellent oxidation stability, heat resistance and detergency properties of AMSOIL European Motor Oil help keep engines clean. It is specifically designed to prevent sludge and varnish deposits, reduce oil consumption, extend engine life and provide maximum performance.

Excellent For Turbochargers

AMSOIL European Car Formula 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 turbo-chargers against oil starvation in subzero temperatures and ensures a rapid return to appropriate oil pressure at startup.

Great product
By  CARLOS,  a  Verified Buyer  on  March 24, 2023
Changed the engine oil in my VW CC . I would take it in for oil change while under warranty. Now that my warranty has expired I decided to change it my self and use a quality motor oil. I noticed a smother idle and my valve train quite down. I will continue to use amsoil on my VW.

We’ve been using this oil in my son’s VW for a while now and we have noticed easier starts and a much quieter and smoother running engine. Excellent product!
Excellent value and exceptional quality

Amsoil was one of the highly recommended oils for my 2020 RAM Ecodiesel and I am extremely impressed with it.
Great for VW/Audi TDI engines

By  LINC,  a  Verified Buyer  from  MI  on  September 14, 2021

I have used this oil on my TDI engines for the last 8 years. I had a Q7 TDI and ran 60K miles on one oil change (multiple oil filter changes). I still had oil life left per the AMSOIL oil analysis. Every motor is different, so get your tests in. My current TDI only goes 20k between oil changes. Highly recommend
Great oil

By  PAULO,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Davie,FL  on  September 06, 2021

Living in south Florida it gets real hot, so I want the best protection for my engine. I been using Amsoil since 2018 for my Civic Si and use it for my wife’s 2019 Civic sport hatch. I drive a 2015 Golf TSi and I want to know that with the extreme heat my engine will run smooth and the turbo keeps cool.
