    Best 504.00 507.00 Granville is Hyperlube Evo as it's also a C2 , like Mobil 1 ESP Formula .

    I've noticed a lot of folk asking, based on confusion, when they should change from 5w30 to 5w40 to allow for wear in a PD engine.

    The local VW garage parts counter lads told me the taxis are getting upto 400k miles on the clock so is 5w30 507.00 good for all that service life?

    Lol , you're infinite .

    You must look back on this expansive thread as the answers are there .

    The 30 grade 504.00 507.00 is just 1 - 2.3centiStokes difference at 100C to 40 grade 502.00 505.01 depending on the manufacturer of oil , a grade has a range of about 4 centiStokes so 8 centiStokes diffence is possible and more significant .

    Under Castrol's production it was just 1 .

    Higher group oil basestocks and additive package concentration of the 30 gives better protection etc .

    So why put a lesser very slightly thicker oil in that will return less mpg ?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
