Default Quaker State 507.00 Oil?

Is there a Quaker State Oil that meets 507 spec? Asking because I recently purchased a brand new 2009 TDI and this is what my dealer uses. Just want to verify if this is true, because they are also not servicing the DSG at 40K mi , saying NOT NEEDED

whoa.... they should be using the castrol oil....

They do not know what they are doing. Run, do not Walk, but Run to another dealer for your servicing!

Put in diesel plus in the product and click submit to read about their 507 oil.

That's pretty cool. Too bad they don't have it in a 5-40 weight.

It's the sheet that says diesel plus and it talks about use with VW 507 and diesel using DPF. It's in there.

What are the chances that oil would need to be imported?

I saw it at Wal mart two days ago. $5.25/ quart. Interestingly, the Pennzoil Platinum version did not list any VW Spec on the bottle. (So of course I scoffed and walked away.) But it did list the whole "for use on 2007 and later model diesels blablabla" It was also a 5W30 oil.

That's what I mean FLAK. The 507.00 version won't be sold in the US on store shelves.

If it meets CJ-4 though I'll add it to my list.

Do you really think that it's NOT 507 certified? I made the assumption that it WAS certified (based on the data sheets from the link posted above) but the labeling just omitted it for some reason.

By comparison, there was also a Castrol Syntec Full Synthetic in the black bottle 5W30 weight-the IDENTICAL bottle to what is purchased at the dealership but it does NOT say "VW 505.00 505.01 etc.) Do you assert that THAT bottle is NOT VW cert oil as well?

It was also the exact same price as the dealership too.

Castrol Syntec 5w30 has never met any VW specs, it's not suitable for ANY VW. Castrol Sytec 5w40 does meet 505.00 though. Castrol TXT 5w40 is 505.01, as is Castrol SLX 5w30. SLX LL03 is a 507.00 oil. You probably won't find TXT or SLX in a traditional store.

There are clues that lead me to believe it's not a 507.00 oil. (1) It's not listed on the bottle (2) Says it's for 2007 and later diesels. That sounds like an API CJ-4 oil.

It's not unusual for European/International and American versions of the same oil to meet different specs.

/EDIT: Added SLX LL03
