about Amsoil AFL 5W-40 European Formula:
questions have been answered by our degreed automotive engineers.
(None of them are employed by AMSOIL, Inc.)
I'm... a small shop owner and have a
question for you. I use Amsoil in my personal cars and sell quite a
bit to customers. There seems to be a lot of discussion on several
boards about VW 505.01 Approval list and the fact that Amsoil is not
listed. I can understand that there could be many reasons for this,
but I'm about to do an oil change on a customer's 04 Touareg in a
few days and I have 4 cases of Amsoil 5W40 Euro. I wouldn't know
what to say if my customers asks if it is an approved oil. I can
pick up Castrol TXT 505.01 oil at the dealer for about $5.95 a quart
and end all worries, but I think the Amsoil is a superior product
approved by VW or not. Worse case, if the engine blows up, totally
unrelated to the oil because they would look for any excuse, could
VW cause serious issues for my customer and my company? If there is
even a hint of a chance, I may just purchase the Castrol and be done
with it. I just wanted to get your position on this issue of meets
specs, but not technically approved by the manufacturers.
Marc - from Long Island,
The law specifically prohibits a
manufacturer from denying a claim based on unrelated aspects. But
further, the law puts the burden of proof on the manufacturer to
demonstrate in independent engine teardown results and in oil sampling
analysis that the oil was the actual cause of a problem. Because
it is very rare for any oil to be a problem, and because Amsoil has
never in history been found to have caused any damage whatsoever,
warranty concerns should be a non-issue. See this information
about warranty concerns with Amsoil products:
If a rogue dealer employee causes a problem, the OEM will not back them
when the customer asks, and Amsoil loves the rare opportunity to step
into these situations.
“European Car Formula 5W-40 Motor Oil” (AFL) IS approved because it DOES meet
the 505.01 spec. Some older lists do not have them, because for several
months they (Volkswagon) would not release either the spec or testing
requirements, or identify a testing lab that could perform the tests –
this is a common delay/ploy intended to benefit the original oil mf’r
(such as Castrol) who worked with them to formulate the spec and
product. The only questions are the product code and the age of the
cases you have in stock. If they have the AFL product code and have
been purchased in the last six months (very rough approximation), they
will have the new label as you see here, and it is certainly the new
formulation. Here’s the full scoop:
However, keep in mind that what the
manufacturer requires is meeting the specification - not being licensed
by the OEM for a listing in the owner's manual, or Licensed by the API
to display their trademark logo. Meeting the specification, or in
Amsoil's case typically exceeding most specification minimums by an
embarrassingly wide margin, is a matter of repeated and longstanding
record in the specified ASTM test results. In every case, whether
Licensed or not, the full burden for spec compliance rests on the oil
company and no-one else. In this case, there is no other oil on
the market that is claimed to meet all three latest specs for BMW, M-B
and VW - another testament to Amsoil's performance supremacy.
API Licensed oils are known to produce fatal sludging as early as 50,000
miles in a number of 1997-2004 engines from several OEM's, Saab service
experts noted that Amsoil's AFL outperforms everything they've ever used
in keeping engines clean and sludge-free. This shows once
again that the API's system of approving minimal performance is
questionably risky for consumers, while Amsoil's reputation for extreme
excellence is well founded. We'd appreciate it if you posted a
link to this information on some of the VW forums and member boards - it
would help a lot of VW owners.
AMSOIL is the undisputed leader in
Since 1972, AMSOIL Synthetic
drivetrain LUBRICANTS have proven to be the
highest performance engine oils, greases, transmission fluids, and hydraulic and differential
gear oils on the market.
But the other key issue is
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, 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,
and have OEM certified fitment for your vehicle. 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
Nanofiber technology filters. We have the full line of

AMSOIL offers a growing line of the only OEM
certified air induction filtration systems on the market. Offering
dramatic airflow improvements for gains in horsepower, fuel economy, and towing
torque, they also keep wear particles out of your engine better than any
marketed product. Current air inductions systems include the
7.3 liter PowerStroke. In addition, AMSOIL has released a full line of
nanofiber universal air induction filters (EaAU)
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 than oiled gauze. AMSOIL Ea Air Induction Filters are dry no-oil
filters that offer far better
efficiency, 50 times the capacity, excellent airflow and are easily cleanable.
Got a Hummer H2 or H3? How about a newer Ford
PowerStroke? Then you already have superb nanofiber air
filtration. But we offer the real PowerCore replacement air filter for your Hummer
or PowerStroke, at
a much lower cost than the dealerships!
