Hi,

The manual says 'only diesel engine standard ACEA B3/B4 oils' in the range 10W40 - 10W50 or 5W40 - 5W50 or 0W40.

You should not use 0W30, 5W30 or 10W30

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.

Should have added that most people like to go for either semi or fully synthetic, but the fully synthetic can be pricey depending on your budget!
