I believe I know what it is you are confused about. The only thing I am responding to is your statements that there are no 5w 40 507 approved oils.
Your statements:
“However, there are no 5w40 oils that meet 507 approval....go figure.
“I don't know what that post is for, but again, there are NO 5w-40 oils that are 507 approved.”
And some how you believe that I am saying that the oils that VW say are good to go for use in our TDi's (meet specs and will not void warranty) or otherwise known as "Approved for Use" have the individual oil companies claim they are 507 approved (?).
Anyway, I am not saying that; just posting info on 5w 40 507 oils approved by VAG.
