    Hello guys

    I have had my A3 for about 8 months, not due a service yet so do not know what oil has been used before!. I have been using a vw 505.00 approved 15w/40 API SL/CF ACEA A3/B3 to top up as and when. Bought some 10w/40 semi syn today with same numbers, am I ok to use this just for topping up? Mileage 131,000

    Many Thanks

    Jason

    Stick to factory spec, which is 5w-40 full synthetic.

    If you do want to go up to 10w-40 then rather go for full synthetic.
