    Oil Min warnig - 2.0l TDI 170 Oil Grade/Spec?

    Hi all,

    My 2007 2.0l Tdi 170 Bleeped at me on the way to work with oil Min which I only hope isn't the rocker cover issue after new injectors!

    Anyway car was serviced @ an independent prior to my purchase and is on Longlife plan currently.

    What Make/grade of oil do i need to top it up?? Got a Halfrauds/motor factors or a VW garage on my way home...........

    Cheers!

    Got some Castrol Edge on the way home all sorted. How much oil do the 2.0 l TDI's use??? i've never had to top oil up between services on any other motor i've had. But it is the first oil burner i've owned :-).
