      **I did this write up a few years ago for the Mk4 forum. It has not been updated since 2005. Please use this as a guide, but keep in mind that some oils may have been added or removed from this list since it was made.**

      All You Ever Wanted to Know about VW Approved Oil, and more!

      To make a long story short, VW Auto Group (specifically VW and Audi) maintain an oil standard of approved oils which are acceptable for use in their engines.

      This compliation of approved oils is to help you choose an oil which will both suit your needs, and confirm to the VW oil standard.

      Currently, there are two standards which you should be concerned about, the 502.00 and the 505.01 standards.

      If your car was made between 1998 and 2004, your car requires 502.00 oil. For a list of approved 502.00 oils, click here.

      If you car was made after 2004, your car requires 505.01 oil. For a list of approved 505.01 oils, click here.

      The 505.01 oil standard is the most recent - released July 2005.

      If you are confused about which oil you should choose, I suggest reading the PDF version of VW's Choosing the Right Oil—gasoline engines brocure, which is available here.

      **Regarding TDI Engines**

      Quote, originally posted by tjl »

      TDI diesel engines in the US, use:

      1996-2003: 5W-40 or 5W-30 synthetic with any of VW 505.00, ACEA B3 or B4, or API CF-4, CG-4, CH-4, or CI-4
      2004-2005: VW 505.01 rated oil only

      Note: VW 505.01 rated oils also meet VW 505.00 (though typically not VW 502.00). Most(?) VW 502.00 rated oils also meet VW 505.00 but not VW 505.01.

      disclaimer: all information in the thread was obtained from VAG as puplic domain information. If, after reading this thread, you are still unsure of what oil to use, please consult a VW Technician. That is all.

      VW/Audi Approved Engine Oils (Manufactures A thru P)
      Oil Quality Standard VW 502.00

      For the most part, these are all 5W-40 viscosity. There are a few that are 0W-40 and some that are 5W-30. These appear in green for easy identification.

      Does Valvoline claim that this oil meets VW 502.00? Last I checked, Valvoline claimed that Synpower 5W-40 and Max Life Synthetic 5W-30 met VW 502.00, but made no such claim for Synpower 5W-30.

      it's not if valvoline claims it but rather if audi claims it. this list was not made by the individual oil manufacturers but rather by audi. refer to the pdf linked to in the first post for more information (it's the official audi briefing).

      If your car was made between 1998 and 2004, your car requires 502.00 oil.

      Incorrect with respect to TDI diesel engines in the US, which use:

      1996-2003: 5W-40 or 5W-30 synthetic with any of VW 505.00, ACEA B3 or B4, or API CF-4, CG-4, CH-4, or CI-4
      2004-2005: VW 505.01 rated oil only

      Note that VW 505.01 rated oils also meet VW 505.00 (though typically not VW 502.00). Most(?) VW 502.00 rated oils also meet VW 505.00 but not VW 505.01.

      BTW, the VW 505.01 rating is much older than July 2005. Oils with that rating were supplied to VW dealers in the US in late 2003 for use in 2004 TDI engines. And such TDI engines were available in other markets prior to that.

      Quick modification.... 1996-2003, it's 5w40 only. The last service bulletin supercedes the 5w30 synthetic requirement-- making it 5w40 only.

      This is different from the owner's manual as it says 5w30 is acceptable if 5w40 is not available

      it's not if valvoline claims it but rather if audi claims it. this list was not made by the individual oil manufacturers but rather by audi. refer to the pdf linked to in the first post for more information (it's the official audi briefing).

      Could there be some confusion between Valvoline Synpower MXL 5W-30 in Europe and Valvoline Synpower 5W-30 in the US?

      Synpower MXL in Europe: https://www.valvoline-technolo...ument

      Synpower in the US: https://www.valvoline-technolo...ument

      The above documents claim VW 502.00 (and VW 505.00) for Synpower MXL 5W-30, which is sold in Europe, but claim VW 502.00 (and VW 505.00) for Synpower 5W-40 (but not 5W-30), which is sold in the US.

      seems to be correct to me - both Synpower 5W-30 and 5W-40 are on the service bulletin.

      i cant speak to their availability in the US, as i have never purchased either.

      well believe what you want, i'm sure its perfectly fine, however VW/Audi DOES NOT have Amsoil listed on their tech bulletin, so its not listed in this thread.
