What does it say on the "slam panel" under the bonnet?

There should be a sticker there stating the oil specification.



I have 3 "cars", all "require" different specs....

For the last 10 years they have ALL been run with Mobil 3000 fully synth.

I use the 5W-40 recipe....as it suits my climate.



Oil is oil...unless running a high performance engine....I:



As long as you don't use "rubbish", and change it and the filter at the specified time....a fully synth should be OK for any engine....

Or am I talking ? :* (Not unknown....)
Cheers for that matey I'll have a gander when I get home.... I'm off down Anglesey for bank holiday so want to make sure I got oil.

Alternately you can go to local vw dealer or local TPS branch and ask for Quantum oil in 5w30 or 5w40 fully synthetic, same stuff as in Castrol Edge gold bottles from supermarkets but cheaper... i used to buy it in 20L drums, it worked under 50 quid per change...
