Which oil

Post by BoSelecta75 » Wed Sep 04, 2019 9:09 pm

Hey guys which oil are you all using? Ive got a 2010 1.9 diesel with 160,000 on it. My mate is recommending 10w40 due to the high mileage. Anyone got anything to say about that? Any recommendations?

Using a thicker oil for higher mileage is a bit oil school thinking and can be detrimental to the running of the engine. The higher viscosity may make the engine sound better but may not necessarily lubricate as the engine requires.
Stick to a good quality oil, so long as it has the VW 504.0/507.0 approval to suit the PD engine.
