    Just checked my oil level and it could do with a top up. It's due a service in December so will get oil and filter changed then. Can someone tell me what oil I should use in the mean time? ItÂ’s an A3 TDI

    What year is the car and is it on AVS (variable servicing)?

    Ask audi to be sure, but I think you can use upto 1 litre of non AVS spec oil between services in an emergency. As long as you dont mix non synthetic with synthetic or wildly different viscosities, you should be fine.

    best bet is to ring the garage that serviced it last and ask what they used.
