I had my car serviced about 3 months ago which involved an oil change. Checked the level today and it has dropped by about a third.
First of all is this normal to lose so much in 3 months? Never lost that much oil before the service anyway.
Secondly, I rang up the garage and asked what oil they used so that I could match it when topping up and he said Longlife 3 530PD. Best get it from VW as there is no off the shelf oil alternative.
Is this right? Am I best sticking to the OEM oil, or is there an off the shelf alternative I can use? Just wondering as I'd like to get some today asap.
