    Hi All!

    Hope your well! my A4 2.0T drinks oil......as many do! Top up every 3000 / 5000 miles depending.....!

    Anyway Ive used Castrol Edge 5 - 30W ( I am prety sure thats the correct rating or whatever it says in the handbook!). Is there anything better you would recommend? maybe something not as thin? It doesnt bother me too much just curious to know experiences of other drivers?

    thanks

    The Castrol Edge stuff is what I use and haven't had any issues. I believe the dealers use Castrol Longlife SLX III 5W-30 which you can buy on ebay.

    I've never had a car that needed oil between services but the 2.0TFSI certainly does. I wonder why.

    If you look in the handbook it says something like expected oil consumption "up to 0.5l per 1000 miles" so Audi certainly seem to expect you'll use some oil.

    I checked mine for the first time after the oil change 700 miles used 500ml - 600ml

    It's a lot innit!
