normally it is a 10w40, i use a 5w40 fully syth from vw, very good price and does the job, it's called quantum platinum. it's the very same stuff as castrol edge, but at a sensible price :D.
i really do not think there is a advantage going to a 5w/30, and the engine in the t4 is not a modern design to be able to use this viscosity.i would not thought it would be a problem to use .... but why risk it.

You can run 10-40 but I would go with 5-40 as that is what I run them on. You can use 5-30 but this is more for long life servicing.

Be worried if a garage tell you this seems there reading from the comma spec book which is confusing 10w/40w is good enough as said above genuine vw oil is castrol but cheaper to buy from TPS quantum platinum *<:)> and you will need to buy 6 ltrs *<:)>
