AMSOIL, based in Superior, Wis., U.S.A., announced that it 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.
The company said the new AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Improved Emission System Protection (ESP) Synthetic Motor Oil 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 lube formulation now meets the following performance specifications: Chrysler MS-11106 (Eco Diesel), ACEA C3 and GM dexos2™ (Diesel).
Engineered with a select additive package and shear-stable synthetic base oils, AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP meets strict ACEA and VW HTHS requirements, the company said.
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 weight oil reduce friction for increased energy throughput to maximize fuel economy. It also provides excellent deposit control and outstanding wear protection for gasoline- and diesel-fueled engines, according to AMSOIL.
It was formulated to stay in grade throughout the extended drain intervals recommended by European automakers, it added.
