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 .

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 arse from their elbow , probably one for VW Technical .

How do you know if your VW can use this spec?
My Golf uses either 502 or 504. Could it use this new oil?
NO ! You can absolutely NOT USE VW508.00 0W20 in older cars !!
Wichtig: Motoröle der Spezifikation VW 50800 sind – im Gegensatz zu 50400 Motorölen – nicht rückwärtskompatibel. Das bedeutet, sie dürfen nicht in älteren VW-Motoren eingesetzt werden, sondern nur in den neuen, die genau diese Spezifikation erfordern.
