    Allroad V6 Tdi 180bhp...Which Oil????

    Allroad is due an Oil change in the next 300 miles and was wondering what other owners have been using in the form of Oil.
    Engine Code is "AKE" and according to the manual Oil spec should meet 506.00 and/or 506.01.
    I've been recommende Millers XF longlife 0W-30.
    Anyone have any experience of Millers.
    Incidentally,car has been on Longlife servicing but i intend to revert to fixed servicing but still use Longlife Oil as i tend to do short journeys.
    Thanks

    My engine is an AKE too. Shell Helix diesel grade meets the VW spec for top ups, otherwise whatever Audi use as it has FASH.

    Engine oil: filling up

    The engine is filled with a high-quality multi-grade oil at the factory: this can be used all year round, except in extremely cold climates.

    Viscosity grades





    Select the viscosity grade of the oil according to the chart.

    A -
    High-lubricity multi-grade oils, specification → Chapter

    B -
    Multi-grade oils, specification → Chapter

    A -
    LongLife high-lubricity multi-grade oils, specification → Chapter
    Note
    The oil does not need changing for brief variations of outside temperature beyond the temperature ranges shown.

    Viscosity grades and oil specifications

    The specifications listed here must appear on the container - either singly or together with other specifications.
    Note
    When topping up it is permissible to mix different types of oil.
