I have just done a swift oil change on my 2.5DTI. The local spares place told me i should be using fully synthetic oil. Last time I bought oil from them I was told semi-synthetic was what I should be using. This time I was told the semi would shag my engine!!!

What is correct? Its a 2.5TDI on a W plate.

Only done a few hundred miles on the semi but going to Scotland and Ireland on the fully next week...........to be fair it does sound a bit quieter with the fully in it. Or am I being a tw*t?

Have a look on the bonet slam panel for the oil specification sticker, Mine which is an 03 2.5 TDI says VW 506.00, Yours may be different being an earlier model.

Have a look at this post,

I use fully synthetic 5w/30 in mine meeting the 506.00 spec but a lot of people do use semi synthetic 10w/30 or 40.

Hope this helps.
