      Taking the bait...saw Jess's quote.

      1.5 million on 2 different diesels...BS

      I drive about as much as anyone I know and I only do around 40,000 a year. Say I could do 1.5 times that and get 60,000 a year. In 10 years that would only be 600,00 on one car...do the math. Even if he were driving all day and got the cars with 100,000 each on them *but he said HE had the 1.5 on each not someon else* It would take almost 30 years of 60,000 per year to get 1.5 on ONE car. . . Might make sense as I think he is senile and that usually happens to old people.


      It is possible to drive way more miles than that, but usually you are hauling something and get paid for it. Even so it takes those guys years to hit the million mile mark.


      Normally I would say stop feeding the trolls and they go away, but this is funny so keep on

      Not at all. Straight 40= way too thick in the winter, not diesel rated, and wrong change interval.

      Mobil 1 TDT 5w40 or Rotella T6 5w40.. Both available at any Walmart..

      Perfect oils for your car.

      Also, oil/filter every 10k or 6 months, whichever comes first.

      I see no reason to change oil every 6 months if you have not hit 10k. Seems waste full the oil is not going bad in 6 months.

      6 months is a bit much. I do once a year if I don't hit the mileage mark in that time.

      I have been using Scheaffer's 9000 in the 5w-40. For me better and cheaper than Rotella. Comes with free oil analysis too.
      I like 1.6l and 1.9l Diesels

      That's the rule of thumb over at TDIClub...they get mad if you say you change your oil more often than 10k

      You know....our diesel trucks we use at work, Cat engines, we go 12,500 miles. But those engines max out at 2000 rpm, hold 12 gallons of oil and have a filtration system many times better than any automotive one. The logic on the TDI's is rediculous imho. If a car has a better quality paint job....the same logic would dictate you only wash the dirt off once a year

      My OCI's in the old Jetta were around 16,000 miles.. No issues when using a Group IV PAO full synthetic..

      360,000 miles on that car when I retired it, engine was still purring like a kitten.

      All of our cars we follow once a year or 5k, whichever comes first. Did this on my 2.0 Beetle, do this with my GTI, hubby's TDI, and his Accord (though that car had a "service engine soon" light come on every 5k to remind you ). We're still breaking in the TD though so OCIs are just now getting regular again. But that will be the same. We also keep an eye out on sales on oil at Autozone, etc. and stock up.

      I can see why people are telling you that you're wasting $$$ doing the oil every 5K on the TDI.

      Why not get a OA done with Blackstone?

      It has a lot of city driving on it. And we are planning on running biod eventually on it. Its our money and what we choose to do. Oil and filters aren't that expensive, especially if you grab it all on a deal like we try to do. We don't really put a ton of miles on our cars. It usually works out to be around that 5k per year anyway, especially now with 3 cars in the fleet, and we're not going 2 years on an oil change.

      I have no problem with someone saying "you know you could go longer" if they just drop it after someone says that they want to do shorter OCIs. But TDIClub goes nuts and pretty much verbally attacks anyone who does. They also claim that the second 5k is somehow better oil...?
