The 502 and 504 specs are approved for use in the GTI. I own a 2018 GTI and I use Motul 8100 X-Max.I’m seeing in VW oil charts that they have gas engine oil spec 502 through 509.
I getting a 2018 gti. Which spec should be used. Is the higher number an improvement over the lower and therefore can be used in its place.
I'm attempting to research this at the moment. I looked up the SDS for Mobil 1 and its looking like group III. Wonder if they changed the formulation when they lost BMW LL01 certification.I believe Mobil-1 FS 0W40 meets the requirements as well (pretty sure the FS one is Type 4) but did lose it's BMW LongLife-01 spec (compared to Castrol).
API SN, SM, SL, SJ
ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4
VW 502 00/505 00
Note: the small FS label near the handle.
also, 2019 is still "Castrol." If they are switching to Mobil, then it's with the 2020s, and in NA, those Euro '20s won't be a new model here for another 2 years anyway, right?Specs have not changed for 18 and earlier MK7s. The spec for 19s did change. 508.xx. 0w-20
