Iím assuming the 2019 fit and gli are using the same oil since the engine is the same. If going 0 20 what brand is recommended?


500 miles, new engine and turbo

Take advantage of FCP's lifetime guarantee and they'll refund the cost of the oil after the next purchase and you shipping the used oil back to them.

Mobil 1 Extended Performance is not approved for be 508/509 00 spec but compared the mobile 1 to the 508.00/509.00 spec it's pretty darn close. I think I'm will be fine with Mobil 1. I've been running Mobil 1 Extended Performance since last month and have noticed anything different. Oil temp range from 215-227F same with Castrol from the factory. I planned to change every 5K miles. To use Mobil 1 will not put a dent in my pocket like Castrol. LOL

I put regular mobile 1 extended at 4K miles. It seems fine but I changed back to the factory Castrol 0w-20 508.00 at 5K and consider it my first oil changed LOL. I'll change the oil every 5K miles from now on. The car got 6 years/72K miles warranty. I don't want to running into a problem with warranty denial down the road.

Dealer switched my 2019 Rabbit 6spd MT to 5w-40 due to rough dle, poor driveability, and terrible gas mileage issues that destroyed the O2 sensor in 600 miles. Car has run perfect since switching to 5w-40. Dealer said there's a bulletin out there for the 2019 MT cars, but no one has seen it. They also claimed manuals would be going back to old oil spec for 2020.

I can't confirm this through any official means, it's what my dealer is telling me. They said they've seen 3 2019's running the same easy and destroy the O2 sensor and switching oil back resolved the issues with all 3 cars.

Manual cars are supposedly getting an ECU update at some point too, due to the stalling issue.

My 2019 Black Rabbit 6spd has no issue with 0W-20 VW 509.00. I asked the service advisor at the dealer in Virginia about using different weight oil. He said if you are using anything different from what the manual said might void your warranty.

Lol, that's pretty funny. VW didn't change the engine and would have to provide some rational, that doesn't exist, for voiding the warranty over oil weight, especially since the R still uses 5w-30 and 5w-40. Your dealer staff are idiots.

And what's your point? If your car isn't having issues, why would you ask to charge the oil to fix a problem your car doesn't have? Or are you implying that since your car doesn't have an issue, my car wasn't really getting 26 mpg on the highway and didn't destroy an O2 sensor in 1200 miles?

Try reading. Dealer changed the oil to fix my issues based on a tech bulletin.

So itís just on the MT ? Iím assuming the ECU settings are different from DSG for obvious reasons, but I really donít like running 0w20 in my car either way.

Different weight I can get 3 times cheaper at Walmart. I can get a 5qt Mobile 1 0W-20 VW approved for $10 changes vs the 508:00 about $50 for 6 qt
