    Spec is one of the following,which is displayed on the Miller Oils drum we have here

    VW503.00
    VW506.00
    VW506.01

    I have a feeling 506.00 is the longlife one.

    For a 2.0TDI-140 the correct top-up was VW 506.01 with AVS and VW 505.01 for fixed interval servicing. Both of these specifications have been superseded by VW 507.00. 507 is also the only oil that should be used in a 170 2.0TDI.

    Both Castrol Edge 5w-30 and Shell Helix Ultra VX 5w-30 meet the 507.00 specification. Others may also meet the spec but check on the container. If they meet the spec they will say so I'm sure.

    Here's the bottle of Castrol I have in the boot in the small Audi bag:





    Does that means it's on AVS? (Btw, is AVS another term for Long-Life servicing?)

    Yes Longlife Service and AVS (Audi Variable Servicing) are the same thing. I think all new Audis leave the factory set for AVS. To check - look at the sticker with the VIN number in your service book. In the 3 digit codes in the lower part of the sticker should be one 'QG1'. This means Service Interval Prolongation in Audi speak which means Longlife Service of AVS.

    Ouch 13.99 for a Litre of Castrol Edge at Halfords. I used to pay that for 5 Litres of Semi that I used in my Mark IV Golf (changed every 5K though).

    I hope my 2.0TDi doesn't used too much between changes.

    Thats everyone for your help.

    That's the reason we (the company) went for a 25L drum of Millers.
    All bar one of our 2.0 tdi's burn oil at the sort of rate a 1972 Maxi would be proud of,so the MD got fed up of paying 15 per litre from the local Audi dealer.
    So he set someone the task of finding an alternative.
    The Millers works out at just under 10 a litre.

    Comming from a 120K Miles 1.8T that didn't need touching between 5K changes this may well be a bit of a shock.

    I guess my Shell Plus points will be getting used on Shell Helix of the correct spec.

    You might strike it lucky and get one that doesn't use any.
    It does seem to be a bit of a lottery though.
