New 5W-40 Full-SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil Completes European Car Formula Lineup

Sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur (SAPS) comprise a significant portion of a motor oil’s additive content. To ensure proper engine protection and optimal emissions system performance and life, it is important to use an oil that meets the recommended specification listed in the vehicle’s owner’s manual.

With AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil (AFL) meeting mid-SAPS requirements and European Car Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (AEL) meeting low-SAPS requirements, new European Car Formula 5W-40 Full-SAPS Synthetic Motor Oil (EFM) completes the European Car Formula lineup (5W-40 continues to be the most commonly recommended viscosity for European vehicles). Its robust full-SAPS formulation provides excellent protection and performance in a wide range of vehicles.

All three European Car Formula bottles now feature an updated and consistent look, with the SAPS level clearly shown on the labels to help customers select the proper oil for their vehicles.
