    You shouldn't mix your oil up Matey If you are unsure. If you have the service book and the last service was a VAG dealer....good chance it will be VAG long life...should maybe say in the service book. For the same price a full tank of derv you could treat your pride and joy to an oil and filter change and put in some nice fresh gear to be on the safe side.

    Good Luck
