VW oil compatibility chart

Found a VW pdf chart for VW502 00 and VW505 01 oil compatibility. Updated chart has now been published. Unfortunately the pdf is too big for the forum rules to post for direct download so have linked to it instead here:

Thanks for that. VW507 00 spec is a 5W-30 oil with extended life.

The VW507.00 spec. 5W-30 oil is required for all current top end turbo engines in the VAG ranges, on the extended service schedule. They are all delivered with the engine filled with that oil. Used to be that diesels and petrols had different spec. oil, but the top spec. synthetic seems to cater for them all now.

Goes down well with a splash of Ginger Ale. And you don't need another for 18,000 miles.

So there's no confusion: the owners manual for the US GTI (gasoline engine, of course) does NOT spec 507.00. It specs 502.00 This is also stated on a sticker in the engine bay.

The manual also specs EITHER 5W-30 OR 5W-40.

I prefer using the 5W-40 to minimize the oil consumption

Well, looks like I'll just keep buying 0W-40 Mobil1 by the jug...My BMW takes the same oil as our new Golf since it meets the spec.

Hello,
If I have in engine Castrol oil with VW 502 00 specification (fixed service interval), can I add Castrol oil VW 504 00 specification (variable service interval) to get „max” on dipstick?
If in the engine is Castrol oil with VW 502 00, can I add Mobil 1 ESP, same 5W30, with VW 502 00 to get „max” on dipstick? The additives are different? Problems may occur?
Thank you for answers.

Has anyone tried this Oil Additive by Liqui Moly:

Ceratec Oil Additive
Volkswagen Golf VII R 2.0T Gen3
Performance additive for longevity of metal engine/transmission components. 300mL
Ceratec is a high quality ceramic wear protection product which is safe for use in all engine oils. It reduces friction and wear due to ceramic compounds that withstand extremely high chemical and thermal loads. Ceratec reduces direct metal-to-metal contact, thus increasing the engine service life. The low-friction effect reduces fuel consumption in gasoline and diesel engines. The chemicals in this specially-formulated product adhere to metal surfaces to reduce internal wear and friction, giving you peace-of-mind and saving you costly repairs in the future. Treats up to 6 quarts of engine oil and provides up to 30,000 miles of protection under normal driving conditions.

*Note: Not suitable for use with wet clutch applications or limited slip differentials. Great for use in vehicles with high pressure, cam-driven fuel pumps or engines making noise upon start-up.
