    oil grade

    Evening all

    I had a look in the books that come with the car, a small search on here, i had a look at the google, so far it is 500/ 5007

    What dose that mean. I have all ways had a petrol car and that was 5/30.

    The car, 2.0 tdi A6 manual.

    Regards Graham

    Hi Graham,

    5w30 is the grade of oil ... Link:- HowStuffWorks "What does the weight mean on a can of motor oil?"

    VW 504 00/507 00 is the manufacturer specification for oil, what I understand this to mean is that VW specify x additives/detergents in oil so it is suitable for their engines/service regime ...

    So a 5w30 oil without a VW 504 00/507 00 approval is not appropriate for your car ...

    For past 2yrs been using Quantum 5w30 oil :-

    i) as that is Castrol Edge but rebadged for VAG Dealers
    ii) most of the time cheaper/more quanity than Castrol
