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
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.
AMSOIL Synthetic European Car Formula is formulated to surpass the most demanding European specifications. It is recommended for European and North American gasoline or diesel vehicles requiring any of the following worldwide specifications:
- API SM/CF
- ACEA C3-04
- ACEA A3/B3-04
- ACEA A3/B4-04
- ACEA C3
- BMW LL-04
- Mercedes Benz 229.31, 229.51
- Volkswagen 502.00, 505.00, 505.01
- DaimlerChrysler MS-10725
Recommended for the extended drain intervals established by the vehicle manufacturer or extend based on oil analysis. Change oil filter at time of oil change.
AMSOIL AFL is
compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing
AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed. Aftermarket oil additives
are not recommended for
use with AMSOIL motor oils.
