AMSOIL European Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor OilA reader asks: I’ve got a 2015 Volkswagen GTI with the 2.0L turbocharged engine. I see that AMSOIL suggests 3 different motor oil options for this engine, being the European Formula 5W-40 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil, European Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor Oil or European Formula 0W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor Oil. Which is the best option? Also, do you offer the Mann HU6002Z oil filter for this car?

Our answer: Your engine requires a motor oil with the VW 502.00 spec for gasoline engines and all three of the AMSOIL European Formula Motor Oil products you mentioned are turbo-ready and formulated to meet that specification. But we lean toward one of these three candidates and it also happens to be the least expensive choice. That choice would be the “EFM” AMSOIL European Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor. Let us explain.

European motor oils are often categorized by their “SAPS” content. SAPS refers to an engine oil’s Sulfated Ash, Phosphorus and Sulfur content. These are vital additives that handle tasks such as wear prevention, engine cleanliness and oxidation prevention (to name a few). Some Euro motor oil specifications dictate lower SAPS levels because high levels aren’t always compatible with some emissions components such as diesel particulate filters. The VW 502.00 specification allows for high SAPS levels.

The AMSOIL Classic ESP 5W-40 and 0W-40 contain full SAPS levels. The “AFL” European Formula 5W-40 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil has lower SAPS levels, but still offers exceptional wear control and performance with a sophisticated base oil and additive formula. AMSOIL is able to go “all-out” with the SAPS levels of the Classic ESP 5W-40 and 0W-40 and because the formulation is actually less complex, input costs are lower and this is reflected in a cheaper price tag.

So based on the “Full-SAPS” formula and much lower price tag, we suggest that AMSOIL European Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor (product code: EFM) is the best all-round choice for your turbo-charged VW GTI. We chose the 5W-40 Classic ESP Motor Oil over the 0W-40 Classic ESP Motor Oil due to lower cost. If you live in climates with extreme cold, the EFM Classic ESP 5W-40 has a pour point of -39°C, while the “EFO” Classic ESP 0W-40 has a pour point of -51°C. If your car is started in extreme winter cold, the 0W-40 is a great option.

As for the Mann HU6002Z oil filter, unfortunately we do not have access to that unit at this time. As our Mann product list is constantly evolving, we hope to have this unit for sale in the future.

AMSOIL is making some changes to their collection of European Formula Synthetic Motor Oils. Some have been reformulated and improved to meet vital new industry specifications. All four products will receive subtle name changes and most get new container size options.

AMSOIL European Synthetic Motor Oil Collection

The AMSOIL European Synthetic Motor Oil collection undergoes name changes and some formulation advances for 2016.

The Low and Mid-SAPS products will be called “Improved” ESP, while the Full-SAPS products will be called “Classic” ESP. “SAPS” refers to the oil’s “Sulfated Ash, Phosphorus and Sulfur” content. “ESP” stands for “Emissions System Protection”. The emissions system of each European car model is designed to tolerate a specific SAPS level and that is why there is a variety of European motor oil types.

Let’s take a look at how AMSOIL’s Euro Motor Oils will look for 2016.

AMSOIL Low-SAPS European Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (AEL)

This product receives the most changes of all of the European engine oils. First off, its name will now be “AMSOIL European Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil” with the product code remaining “AEL”. As we mentioned a couple of days ago, AEL has been reformulated so that it now meets the Chrysler “MS-11106” and ACEA “C-3” specifications. This makes European Formula 5W-30 suitable for Dodge Ram 1500 pickups with the EcoDiesel engine. This engine is an Italian-made 3.0L turbo-diesel unit made by VM Motori. This engine is also found in some Jeep Grand Cherokee models.

AMSOIL European Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil will also meet the GM dexos2 specification. The dexos2 spec is required for Chevy Cruze models with the 2.0L turbo diesel engine.

Important: For the time being, this new formula is available only in the new US gallon (3.78L) jug format (singles or cases of 4). Quart bottles will contain the old formulation until current stock runs out which will be sometime in January, 2016.

The 5 litre jug format is being phased out and will be replaced with the aforementioned US gallon jug container option.

AMSOIL European Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil will meet the following specifications in 2016.

  • Volkswagen 504.00/507.00
  • Mercedes-Benz 229.51
  • BMW LL-04
  • Porsche C30
  • Chrysler MS-11106 (gallon jugs only until further notice)
  • ACEA C-3 (gallon jugs only until further notice)
  • GM dexos2 (gallon jugs only until further notice)

AMSOIL European Formula Full-SAPS Synthetic 5W-40 Motor Oil (EFM)

The Full-SAPS Euro 5W-40 is getting its name changed to “European Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor Oil“, with the product code remaining as “EFM”. Although the formulation is unchanged for European Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP, some its specifications are newly OEM-licensed. EFM 5W-40 is now carries the Mercedes 229.5 factory approval and the official Porsche A40 endorsement.

This product will also now come in US gallon jugs (or cases of 4). The 5 litre jug will be discontinued once current stock is sold off.

Like most other European car makers, Mercedes-Benz has long had their own motor oil specifications. While some European car owners may grumble about the fact that finding the correct motor oil for the car can be inconvenient (and possibly expensive), these motor oil standards do remove any doubt from the buying process.

Below is an explanation of each Mercedes motor oil standard along with the AMSOIL European Formula Synthetic Motor Oil that complies with the specification. We sell four different European engines oils formulated to meet the specifications for Mercedes-Benz cars and Sprinter diesel vans.

MB 229.1

This obsolete Mercedes motor oil specification was devised for both gasoline and diesel engines back in the late 1990s. The MB 229.1 spec dictated minimum standards in terms of motor oil detergent levels and soot dispersant content. Motor oils suitable for the MB 229.1 specification required high SAPS (Sulfated Ash, Phosphorus and Sulfur) levels. The AMSOIL motor oils that cover the MB 229.1 specification are AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil and AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil.

MB 229.3

For gasoline and diesel engines covering model years from 1998 to 2004, MB 229.3 compliant motor oils also require high SAPS levels. MB 229.3 differs from the 229.1 spec in that it an MB 229.3 engine oil must also be capable of longer oil change intervals and also must reduce friction to improve fuel economy by a percentage point over 229.1. For cars requiring MB 229.3, use AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil or AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil.

MB 229.31

This specification came into effect during the 2003 model year for both gasoline and diesel engines. MB 229.31 motor oils are required to have medium SAPS levels in order to be compatible with Mercedes Bluetec diesel exhaust particle filters and the catalytic converters on the gasoline engines. Higher SAPS levels of some non-compliant motor oils can foul these emission components and cause operational problems. MB 229.31 motor oils must be designed for a service life of up to 15,000 km. AMSOIL European Formula “Mid-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil is suitable for cars and Sprinter vans requiring the MB 229.31 engine oil standard.

MB 229.5

For both gasoline and diesel engines, the MB 229.5 specification was released in mid-2002. This specification was designed to be an upgrade over the MB 229.3 spec in terms of fuel economy and oil change interval duration. MB 229.5 motor oils are formulated with high SAPS additive levels. AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil and AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil cover the Mercedes 229.5 engine oil standard.

MB 229.51

Introduced in 2005, MB 229.51 was designed for longer oil life over the MB 229.31 specification in gasoline and diesel engines. MB 229.51 oils must be capable of staying in service for 20,000 km. MB 229.51 oils must have low to moderate SAPS levels to be compatible with catalysts in gasoline engines and diesel exhaust particle filters. Both the AMSOIL European Formula “Low-SAPS” 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil and the AMSOIL European Formula “Mid-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil are designed for MB 229.51 service.

AMSOIL European Car Formula Full-SAPS Synthetic 0W-40 Motor OilAMSOIL has released a brand new 0W-40 engine oil for many popular European applications with gasoline or diesel engines. The AMSOIL European Full-SAPS Synthetic 0W-40 Motor Oil rounds out AMSOIL’s extensive line of Low-SAPS, Mid-SAPS and Full-SAPS engine oils.

Why Is AMSOIL Now Offering A European 0W-40?

AMSOIL already has a 5W-40 European Full-SAPS Oil, so why did they choose to offer a similar 0W-40 Full-SAPS version? The reason is that 0W-40 is recommended for some European cars in winter and it is a fairly popular viscosity in the European motor oil category.

This new Euro 0w-40 meets the following worldwide specifications.

  • Volkswagen 502.00, 505.00
  • BMW LL-01, LL-98
  • Mercedes-Benz 229.1, 229.3, 229.5
  • Porsche A40
  • ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4
  • Renault 0710, 0700
  • API SN/SM

AMSOIL European Full-SAPS Synthetic 0W-40 Motor Oil is an excellent substitute for the following European engine oils.

  • Castrol Edge 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil
  • Champion High SAPS European 0W-40 Motor Oil
  • Lucas Oil Synthetic 0W-40 Motor Oil
  • Mobil 1 European Car Formula Synthetic 0W-40 Motor Oil
  • Red Line High Performance Synthetic 0W-40 Motor Oil
  • Shell Helix Ultra 0W-40 Motor Oil
  • Shell Helix Ultra Professional AV 0W-40 Motor Oil

Can AMSOIL European 0W-40 Be Used in Summer?

Absolutely. Keep in mind that this motor oil falls into the 40-weight viscosity category at operating temperatures. This 100% synthetic 0W-40 will not breakdown or thin out when faced with extreme summer heat, heavy loads or turbo-charged engines.

Where Can I Buy AMSOIL European 0W-40 Motor Oil?

Right here! Oildepot can sell AMSOIL European Full-SAPS Synthetic 0W-40 Motor Oil at the best price in Canada and the United States. We ship from 2 warehouses in Canada and 11 in the USA. Contact us with the form on this page or call us at 1-800-748-5781 and let’s start the conversation.

Of all of the auto manufacturers, Volkswagen (and sister company Audi) seem to be the most stringent about deterring motorists from making the wrong motor oil choices for their cars. VW started issuing their own motor oil standards almost 20 years ago as a way to ensure that their cars would perform well and last as long as possible. These specifications have evolved along with the technological changes to their cars and the motor oil industry has had to follow along.

VW motor oil standards are quite high and it is certainly not advisable for a VW or Audi owner to choose motor oil that is not designed to meet that appropriate standard for their car. Why are VW oil standards high? Here are some reasons.

  • Some VW cars are equipped with sophisticated emissions components that can be affected by certain motor oil ingredients.
  • VW suggests some of the longest oil change intervals in the industry.
  • VW engines are manufactured with tight manufacturing tolerances and advanced alloys.
  • VW cars are available in either gasoline or turbo-charged diesel engine formats.
  • The design of VW TDI engines can expose the limitations of lesser motor oils.

Let’s discuss each Volkswagen oil specification and offer an AMSOIL European Formula Motor Oil suggestion for each. We offer 4 distinct European Motor Formulas for Volkswagen applications.

VW 500.00

The VW 500.00 oil standard is now obsolete. It covered VW models from 1997 to 1999. This specification has been replaced by the newer VW 502.00 standard. The correct AMSOIL product for cars requiring VW 500.00 is AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil or AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil. AMSOIL European Formula “Mid-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor is an alternate choice for this specification.

VW 501.01

VW 501.01 is also obsolete and was devised for VW cars made prior to the 2000 model year. VW 501.01 has also been replaced by the VW 502.00 spec. For VW cars requiring VW 501.01, use AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil (first choice) or AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil. AMSOIL European Formula “Mid-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor is an alternate choice for this specification.

VW 502.00

The VW 502.00 specification is commonly suggested for many gasoline-powered Volkswagens from the late 90s to present. VW 502.00 oils are generally “full-SAPS or “mid-SAPS” formulations. “SAPS” stand for sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur which are prominent motor oil additives. Failure to use a VW 502.00 formulation can result in valve train noise and excessive engine wear over time. For VW cars requiring VW 502.00, use AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil or AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil. AMSOIL European Formula “Mid-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor is an alternate choice for this specification.

VW 503.00

The VW 503.00 oil spec is a defunct standard for higher horsepower (above 180 hp) Audi models with gasoline engines and very long service intervals. VW 503.00 has been replaced by the VW 504.00 specification. For Audi cars requiring VW 503.00 engine oil, the correct product is AMSOIL European Formula “Low-SAPS” 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.

VW 503.01

VW 503.01 is also an obsolete oil spec for higher horsepower Audi models that have long oil change intervals. VW 503.01 has also been replaced by the VW 504.00 specification. Therefore AMSOIL European Formula “Low-SAPS” 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil should be used where VW 503.01 is suggested.

VW 504.00

VW 504.00 is the latest specification for VW/Audi gasoline-powered engines with long oil change intervals. VW 504.00 motor oils are generally 5W-30, “low-SAPS” (sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur) formulations. For cars requiring the VW 504.00 motor oil spec, use AMSOIL European Formula “Low-SAPS” 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.

VW 505.00

VW 505.00 was a motor oil specification for diesel cars made prior to 2000. For older diesel cars requiring motor oil with the VW 505.00 spec, use AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil or AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil.

VW 505.01

The VW 505.01 spec is a vital motor oil spec devised for the pre-2007 VW turbo-diesel “Pumpe Duse” (also known as “PD”) engines in Jetta, Golf, Passat and Beetle models. In these engines, the fuel pump system is driven off of the camshaft and use of the wrong motor oil type can lead to accelerated camshaft wear. So it is crucial that VW TDI cars requiring the use of VW 505.01 motor oil stick to this specification. For cars requiring VW 505.01 engine oil, use AMSOIL European Formula “Mid-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil.

VW 507.00

VW 507.00 is VW’s latest spec for their turbo-diesel models (Jetta, Golf, Toureg) and is typically specified for TDI cars from 2007 and newer. These cars are equipped with exhaust particle filters, so therefore it is vital that a “low-SAPS” oil is used. Excessive SAPS motor oil additives can contaminate exhaust filters. VW 507.00 motor oils are typically 5W-30. For VW cars requiring the VW 507.00 standard, use AMSOIL European Formula “Low-SAPS” 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.

BMW issues clearly defined motor oil specifications to ensure proper engine protection and so that owners can satisfy factory warranty requirements. Let’s explore what each of these specifications means and determine which of the AMSOIL Synthetic European Formula Engine Oils we sell applies to each.

BMW LL-04 or Longlife-04

BMW-LL-04 was devised for BMW models with diesel engines. Motor oils developed for the LL-04 specification have a “low-SAPS” or “mid-SAPS” formulation. “SAPS” refers to sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur content of the motor oil. High levels of these motor oil additives can cause damage to the exhaust particle filters used on BMW diesel models since 2004. BMW LL-04 engine oils are 100% synthetic and formulated for long service life.

Motor oils bearing the BMW LL-04 specification should not be used in BMW models with gasoline engines requiring the BMW “LL-01” specification. The BMW LL-04 specification does not replace or supersede the older BMW LL-01 specification.

We offer two motor oils that are suitable for use in vehicles requiring the BMW LL-04 spec.

BMW LL-01 or Longlife-01

BMW LL-01 motor oils are fully synthetic with high “SAPS” levels (sulfated ash, phosphorus, sulfur) for maximum anti-wear capabilities and long service life. This spec covers most late model gasoline-powered BMW cars. BMW LL-01 cannot be used in place of motor oils requiring the BMW LL-04 spec in diesel engine models. The high SAPS content of LL-01 oils can cause damage to the diesel exhaust particle filters in diesel models from 2004 and newer.

For BMW models requiring the LL-01 specification, we have two motor oil suggestions.

BMW LL-98 or Longlife-98

The BMW LL-98 specification was a long life oil standard that was introduced in 1998. The LL-98 spec is now obsolete, but older BMW gasoline and diesel cars requiring this spec can use motor oils bearing the BMW LL-01 specification.

We suggest the AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil or AMSOIL European Formula “Full-SAPS” 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil for models requiring LL-98.

BMW M-Series and 10W-60 Motor Oil

For BMW “M” models with engines requiring 10W-60 motor oil, we do not offer a replacement product.

Find the proper European motor oil alternate for products from over 30 brands.

This cross-reference guide suggests an AMSOIL motor oil substitute for most European formula engine oils sold in the United States and Canada.

European car brands such as Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi require the use of different motor oils than North American and Asian car brands. Why is this? Tight European regulations dictate that their cars are equipped with the latest and most effective emissions equipment and the engine oil has to be compatible with these components. These motor oils also have to be suitable for both gasoline and diesel car engines. European automakers also tend to suggest ultra-long oil change intervals, so the motor oil has to be up to that task.

The European car oil spectrum is now split into three distinct motor oil types based on their “SAPS” levels. SAPS stands for sulfated ash, phosphorus and sulfur. These are important motor oil additives that can cause complications with some emissions sensors and exhaust treatment devices. Therefore it is vital that European car owners choose a motor oil that meets the industry specification allotted for their car.

We offer a full suite of 100% synthetic engine oils for European cars. Here are the AMSOIL European Car Formulas and the industry specifications they cover.
