I'm on ECS' email list. Looks good to use for finding leaks. But is it more expensive than using other oil and buying a UV tracer if you ever get a leak you can't find?

Here is the latest Oil Approved Document dated October 2017

https://www.audiusa.com/content/dam/...-1.22.2018.pdf

By chance I had been just about to make a purchase of the FUCHS TITAN GT1 PRO C3 5W30 which on the bottle shows VW 504 and 507 approval (not just recommendation) and yet this oil is not even shown in this most recent TSB .

(How is one ever to keep up with "warranty approved oil"?)

If you're not using PetroChina Kunlun Tianrun SM 5w-40 you're not doing it right.

Manufacturer Approvals:* BMW Longlife-04; MB-Approval 229.51; Porsche A40


Not an approved oil.


Scamsoil is the herbalife of engine oil. There is literally zero reason to use it.


Especially at $12 a quart.

Take heart, that particular flavor is listed on p21 of the above link so use it and be happy!



I've been using LubroMoly Long Life III (VW 504/507) in both TDIs and the GTI, oil consumption on the GTI is about .2L in 5K miles, which is less than the M1 European the dealer used for the freebie and about the same as the factory fill. I like only having 1 oil for all our cars and neither of us drives over 10K per year anymore so the long life aspect appeals to me for annual oil changes.

I use what's recommended, Castrol edge. I figure I should listen to the guys that made the thing since they probably know more than I do.

I'd be interested in knowing what oil others are using in there 2019> GTIs.
As I'll be doing an early oil and filter on mine being that Volkswagen now
calls for 508.00 0W20.
I do feel that there are better oil choices than castrol.
Yes I will be using an OEM VW oil filter.
