Superior Protection and Performance
for Gasoline and Diesel European Vehicles

API SL, CI-4, CF

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.

APPLICATION
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
  • Porsche
  • Saab
  • Volvo
  • Volkswagen 502.00, 505.00, 505.01
  • DaimlerChrysler MS-10725

Service Life
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.

Mixing AMSOIL
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.

Health & Safety
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). An MSDS is available upon request at 715-392-7101 or on the AMSOIL Website. Keep Out of Reach of Children. Don't pollute. Return used oil to collection centers.
