What engine oil ?

Recommended Posts

Thank you Gazwould appreciate the help. I found Bizol Allround 5w30 looks like a good engine oil (API SN/CF).

Does anyone know about engine oil capacity?

Not heard of that one , where are you located ? 

It's not a bad oil being VW 502.00 505.01  but 504.00 507.00 is higher quality and cheap being a VAG staple diet.

Oooh , that's a hot climate ?  , high engine temps experienced ? 

Edge is better than Magnatec , period , but some Edge are higher spec than others , ie  5W30 is higher spec than Edge 5W40 .

No its not that hot we have all four seasons weather here from 30 degrees Celsius in summers to -5 to -10 degrees in winter when it snows. ok so i'll look for a 5w30 with high specs.

Loads of choice concerning this spec oil and cheaper , whether approved or not , a spec is a spec and quality should be the same . 

 

Equivalent to the dual C3 & C2 of Mobil 1 ESP Formula
