Many European Engines are Harmed by
Common North American Oils
manufacturers design vehicles to use specific high quality lubricants with
specific properties and additives. Well over 90% of API-Licensed motor oils offered
on America's retail shelves do not
meet the demanding ACEA specifications, and the European lubricants are not
readily available. Those that are available are typically hard to find, and
quite expensive. As a result, vehicle owners, quick-lube shops and
even dealerships use standard American-market petroleum oils. This
lets problems such as premature engine wear and engine
sludge develop, which can cause complete failure in some engines as early as
40,000 to 50,000 miles.
Engine sludging is
an American oil problem noted in the Audi/Volkswagen 1.8L turbo, for years
1997-2004, and in Saab's 2.0 and 2.3L turbo engines in the 1999-2003 9-3,
9-5 and Viggen. Sludging refers to the creation of tar-like deposits
in the engine. It occurs when petroleum oil breaks down under high
heat and/or under stress such as using the oil for much longer than it can
handle. Sludge deposits also afflict engines from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep,
Toyota and Lexus. And it also hit Mercedes-Benz in a dramatic way when the courts determined that M-B did not
adequately inform American car owners that standard American oils were
sub-standard performance, and that they could not follow the M-B oil change
intervals using those oils. We'll
come back to that in a moment.
"Europeans build their cars and impose higher requirements on the type of
oil than we are used to here in North America," remarks an oil industry
source. "They have more of a multi-tier system within their specifications,
whereas the API uses the lowest common denominator as a guideline. It is by
its own admission, within API 1509, a minimum Spec..."
While the American Petroleum Institute (API) sets minimum oil standards in America,
the Automotive Manufacturers Association (ACEA) sets them in Europe. "ACEA
standards reflect a wider complexity of the offering of engines on the
market right now," says Herve Blanquart, VP Automotive of Motul North
America. "On top of that, manufacturers have introduced their own standards,
most of which start with the ACEA standards, and go further in specific
tests to solve specific problems and address specific issues."
In the U.S., the API adopts one standard for all engine oils. "For example
they are working on ILSAC GF-4, and the problems they are running into is
that this oil will be too thin for a lot of older engines," explains
Blanquart. "In Europe, they decided from the beginning that they would not
adopt a linear standard - rather a standard for each type of application -
gas, diesel, turbo, etc."
European vehicle manufacturers keep tight control over which lubricants
they allow to be used in their vehicles. Inner-company bureaucracies are in
charge of keeping the approved lubricant lists up-to-date with the latest
requirements, and a few companies apply some of the regulations to North
America. European aftermarket service stations must stock different
lubricants for different automobile brands. Sometimes different models put
out by the same manufacturer require different lubricants.
Do-it-yourselfers are less prevalent in Europe. Qualified repair shops,
franchised or tightly controlled by the vehicle manufacturers in order to
dictate the type of oil being used, typically perform most of the oil
The high quality oils used in Europe allow Europeans to enjoy longer drain
intervals. However, when European vehicles are exported to the United
States, the concept becomes distorted.
"There is in general a longer drain associated with the higher tier oils in
the European system," remarks the oil industry source, "so the thought
process is if we don't allow the longer drain in North America, consumers
should be able to get by with API spec oils - but it leaves manufacturers
open to the type of problem Mercedes-Benz recently experienced."
A recent class-action lawsuit brought forward by owners of certain 1998
through 2001 Mercedes-Benz vehicles claimed they weren't informed that
synthetic motor oil was required in order to take advantage of the extended
drain intervals afforded through the use of the vehicles' Flexible Service
System (FSS). Many using conventional oils experienced premature wear
problems, and the settlement will cost the company over $32 million.
"The long drain indicator used by Mercedes is predicated on using
Mercedes-Benz-approved oil, which is a very top quality synthetic oil,"
explains the oil company source. "When those vehicles came to the States,
somehow dealerships weren't impressing upon the consumer the need to use the
right oil. And whether or not the dealers were doing so, some consumers were
putting in regular API-spec oil, resulting in problems."
Although synthetic motor oils are generally of higher quality than
conventional oils, not all synthetics can meet the stringent European
specifications. "A good quality synthetic could solve the problem," says the
source, "but in the case of M-B, for example, you're dealing with an
extremely high-spec oil. Not every synthetic is going to meet that spec.
Some only meet the baseline API specs. Just because it's a synthetic doesn't
mean it's a top tier product.
"Shop owners must keep in mind that there are numerous special requirements
for European vehicles and that they shouldn't always be knee-jerking to the
stuff in the big tank. If you call M-B, Volvo, or VW, for example, they
should be telling you that their vehicle needs ACEA spec products."
Although it's easy to assume that the more expensive the vehicle, the better
quality the lubricant it needs, that's not always the case. For example, the
mid-priced Volkswagen TDI requires a very specific, high spec lubricant.
Looking at this
from yet another perspective, the United States is the only major market in
the world where Group III petroleum oil can be legally labeled as
synthetics. While this clever 1999 maneuver allowed a flood of
petroleum "synthetics" to hit the market and command much higher profits by
undercutting the manufacturing costs of true synthetics, it may well be
contributing to European-vehicle engine problems. Some vehicle owners,
even those aware of the need for high-performance oils, may be using these
API Group III "synthetic" oils while assuming their engine will be
protected. In reality, those oils are only marginally better than
their cheaper siblings, and almost none of them meet the ACEA
specifications. Perhaps Mercedes-Benz should consider a lawsuit
against the oil companies for deceiving the American public and directly
contributing to these problems.
Given this bleak engine-oil picture for American owners of European cars, the corporate hero in the American story is
Several years ago AMSOIL made a splash in the European vehicle market by
introducing their flagship 0W-30 oil. Formulated to surpass a proposed
European oil spec to enable 30,000 mile oil changes, Amsoil recommended it
for 35,000 mile drain intervals. In fact, it is this oil's world-class
technology - improved again in 2008 - that enabled the
Million Mile expedited-delivery van to run conservative 25,000 mile oil
changes. A sub-standard valve keeper halted the engine at 930,000
miles, leading to an engine-rater's discovery that there was almost no
With over 30 years of leadership,
the world's only 25,000 and 35,000 mile oils, and a record of repeatedly setting new
benchmarks for world-class lubricant performance, it's not surprising to
find that AMSOIL European Car Formula 5W-40 100% Synthetic Motor Oil is
formulated to meet
VW 505.01, and Mercedes-Benz 229.51 and BMW LL-04 specifications. This means
the performance is so high that it can handle the most strenuous technical
requirements for the highest performance vehicles, both gas and diesel, with
ease. That's not an easy task. It's one that requires both great
expertise and skillful use of the latest, most-expensive, ultra-high-performance additives. In fact,
Amsoil 5W-40 European car oil (AFL) is the only
motor oil in North America to be recommended for the latest specifications
of all three major European automakers – Volkswagen (Audi), BMW and
Saab is good example of how AMSOIL's high-performance synthetics

engine failure using API Certified "synthetic" oils
because they simply don't meet the
higher-performance requirements of the
European oil specifications.

Amsoil 5W-40 European car oil (AFL) will consistently
outperform all other options in preventing and reducing damaging sludge
buildup in the Nines engines, retaining good oil chemistry and minimizing engine
wear. Previous to extensive Amsoil testing in the many Saabs he

questionably risky for consumers, while Amsoil's reputation for
pursuing extreme excellence appears well founded.
Formulated with top-of-the-line synthetic base stocks and robust

We now cover oil filters, air filters and other fluid filters like NO-ONE else can. AMSOIL
offers the highest performance, most cost-effective, most comprehensive filter line on
earth. Consider air and oil...
Until now, Nanofiber filtration technology has been used
exclusively in heavy duty applications, including the
US ARMY Abrams M1 tank. AMSOIL Ea Filters are the first and only
filter line to bring this technology to the auto/light truck
oil filters provide unmatched full-flow
98.7 percent at
15 microns, and
50 percent at 7
This translates to a 70% reduction in engine wear rates, tripling remaining
engine life while giving longer
filter life and lower pressure drop for better cold-start performance: the only
filtration that gives you the best performance in every category! Compare
that to the filters lining the auto-parts shelves, which don't tell you their
common 7,500 mile design life and either won't tell you what micron level their efficiency rating is for,
or they claim a micron particle size without stating an efficiency: deceptive,
Additionally, consider bypass filtration systems for
commercial and fleet applications in cars and light, medium and heavy trucks
which can filter particles down to less than one micron and are 89% efficient
at 1 micron, making oil changes virtually unnecessary and virtually eliminating engine wear.
(A standard full-flow oil filter can only filter to 20 microns with any
reasonable efficiency, but 5-25 microns is widely accepted as the wear-particle
Easy to install, these oil filter systems have been proven by millions of miles of over-the road trucks,
construction equipment and fleet service. And we use these on our personal
diesel pickup trucks: my
Duramax 2500HD has over
70,000 miles since the last oil
drain, the oil analysis looks perfect, and the appearance of this diesel oil
looks like a gas engine with 3,000 miles on the oil.
The MOST IMPORTANT filter on the M1A1 Abrams
battle tank is its' nanofiber air filter.
The MOST Important filter on YOUR vehicle is also the air
It's far better, and easier, to keep wear particles out of the
engine than it is to attempt filtering them out of the engine oil. Yet
filter companies and vehicle manufacturer's are strangely silent about actual
air filter performance and engine needs. Now AMSOIL offers world-leading breakthrough
filters with exclusive nanofiber technology. Based on battlefield-proven
air-induction systems used in military ground and air vehicles, this high-technology filtration is now available
for consumer use! Ea filters are guaranteed for 4 years, 100,000 miles. The engineering rule of
thumb for damaging wear particle size is 5 to 25 microns. Incredibly, these filters
are 100% efficient at removing particles of 3 microns, and are 80% effective at
removing particles of a 1 micron size. This means that NO WEAR PARTICLES
CAN GET PAST OUR Ea AIR FILTERS! AND, they're less expensive to
use than ANY other air filter.
For Power Sports applications, AMSOIL offers a line
of oiled-foam filters. These filters provide better performance than
oiled-gauze air filters, and are used almost exclusively in most off-road
applications including baja, dirt-track racing, and motocross.
For light to heavy trucks, both gas and diesel
engines, AMSOIL's partnership
with Donaldson provides you with the best performance and most cost-effective air
filtration systems in the world. These include both Powercore and

Well-engineered aftermarket air induction systems
can provide airflow improvements with gains in horsepower, fuel economy, and
towing torque. Unfortunately in many cases they may also let far more wear
particles into your engine than the OEM filter. And oiled media can
contaminate mass flow air sensors, causing problems with emissions, fuel economy
and performance that can even damage transmissions in some cases. AMSOIL
lets you leave those problems behind. Their full line of
nanofiber universal air induction filters (EaAU)
are designed to replace stock oil wetted gauze or foam conical
filters that were supplied with custom induction systems
produced by K&N, Injen, S&B, Green, AIRAID, AFE, TrueFlow
and more. Whether your air induction system is in a gasoline
street-rod, or a diesel truck, you have great airflow but you need better
filtration and more capacity than oiled gauze or foam. AMSOIL Ea Air Induction Filters are dry no-oil
filters with nanofiber filtration media to bring your
aftermarket far better
