I've been trying to establish which oil to use/buy. I work on a fair amount of tdi's mainly from the 99 to 06 range. Always been buying the oil from the dealer. 5/40 castrol syntec for 2003 and prev and 5/30 2004 and after. I'm considering Amzoil. price is right and I beleive they have a good product. I would buy it in bulk Plus it's a friend who's a dealer. Amzoil just came out with a new 5/30 which has the 504 507 spec. the 5/40 is 505 01 spec. If i was south of the border I'd probably have some more options... but shipping is prohibitive. Anyone have any advice?

I've been advised to use Fuchs pro s 5w 40 ester oil as this out performs (by a country mile) all fully synthetic oil recomended by VW. This oil is used in pd engines that are raced with excellent results. Don't know if this oil is available in Canada though.

Amsoil is a good oil as well according to my oil expert.
