    Have a look in the service book for the Golf, it should say oil to a spec of VW 503 01 or something similar.

    The oil supplied with my new S3 is the same my dad got supplied for his Tdi A4 s line so i'd say yes!

    petrol engine oil should be ok in a diesel in small amounts but diesel engine oil has loads of additives that will strip too much oil from the working parts of a petrol engine.

    looking into this on various sites castrol edge 5w/30 is the oil of choice it seems the same oil is used foir petrol as for diesels ???

    anyhow had some Fuchs 5w/30 in the garage so its got 1/2 a litre of that in it for now.
