    New VW oil specs 508.00 & 509.00

    New petrol and diesel oil specs .

    0W20 LongLife 4 for the newest engines with close tolerances .

    Thinner grade / viscosity means less drag , so energy conserving , more bhp and torque and mpg , emissions down too .

    How do you know if your VW can use this spec?
    My Golf uses either 502 or 504. Could it use this new oil?

    I would imagine being this years car , but ultimately check with the dealer preferably by email so in black and white .

    Quite often they are poorly informed and don't know their **** from their elbow , probably one for VW Technical .

    Just reminded me to change my oil. Got some GTX knocking around somewhere.

    LOL - Castrol's 'GroTeX' wasn't that good back in the Eighties, ranked down as fence paint oil these days.
