Found MANNOL engine oil on eBay it looks like it covers alot of VW specs if it does it's like a wonder oil lol , but it's really cheap .
Also says it covers 505.01 and 506.01
But the in description says
504.00/507.00/502.00/505.00/503.01/506.00/
VW 505.01*/506.01**

*Except VW PDU engines without LongLife Service (WIV)
**Except V10 PDU engines in Phaeton until February 2006 and R5 PDU engines in Touareg until December 2006


does this mean it can be used in the earlier 2.5 AXD r5 engines or not ? Hoping someone can click on the links and see if its more clear to them


Look at this on eBay

This debate has raged for years. No one will ever tell you why you cant use these multi std oils on the pre DPF engines but there are mechanical differences between the engines so there's probably a reasonable reason why the newer 507 oil cant be used. Personally, yeah, if its VW approved to 507 std (which is probably the toughest OEM passenger car standard) then it'll have the right constituents. I was told by the lab manager of an oil company that 507 is the only OEM car oil which actually needs true synthetic oil in the make up (i.e a type 4 oil rather than a cracked 1/2/3 etc).

Yes it's the same mannol 7715 . Yeah I've seen the picture of the letter but I've been on the oil companies website and its very basic I mean like a child has done it lol .
Its the 505.01 and 506.01 showing as * , ** next to it which gets me asking .
I messaged the eBay seller and they said it would be ok for the 2.5 AXD engine .
But don't know to trust it
