Evildad-
Don't confuse the Castrol Edge you can buy at common parts stores with that having the 507 rating. I believe this can only be ordered on line or purchased at VW/Audi dealers.

It's always good to compare oil specs with the Lubrizol tool: https://www.lubrizol.com/apps/relperftool/pc.html

IF YOU CAN'T FIND THE OIL YOU NEED ? Just run it with 1940 motor oil. Then do a oil change with the right oil ok...asp

So I was just reading on VW technician FB page about oil specs - turns out VW dropped the 505.01 (that was superseded to 5w30) and just made 507.00 the spec for TDI-PD engines.

Well the VW 505.01 oils never impressed us very much. Folks have been getting much better wear numbers by using the latest, HD diesel oil Spec (currently "CK-4/SN"), in PD motors calling for VW 502.00/505.01. I have had fine results using the VW Spec stuff in VW & Audi gas engines that call for a VW 502.00, gas engine formulation.

I thought some of the 507 bottles say not for PD

CK4 are supposed to be safe for trucks with DPF, But I can't find sulfated ash, I wonder how it compares to 507.00 and MB 229.51?

According to these API CK-4 Amsoil flavors the sulfated ash is between 0.91% and 1%:

https://www.amsoil.com/lit/databulletins/g3467.pdf

Compare that to the 0.6% for the Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30:

Default Should a 93% oil filter last 10k miles?

https://www.mobil.com/english-us/pas...p-formula-5w30
https://www.mobil.com/English-US/Pas...bil-1-ESP-5W30
Yet on this page for the same oil (but w/out "formula") it's 0.8%, with slightly lower Pour Point, Density, and Viscosity at 100 C. On the latest product-specs-guide only two oils have "Formula" in their name: Formula M 5W-40 for Mercedes 229.3/5 and ESP Formula 0W-40 for GM dexos2.
.
But the former may be what a coworker w/an Audi A3 was using years ago. He said that the car was less sluggish than w/ 5W-40 when new. My 2003 Jetta was as well, but using Mobil 1 Extended Performance, and changing it well before 15,000 miles as it seemed that I shouldn't be pushing the lighter grade to the limit when the stated preference in the manual is 5W-40 (and the filter wasn't rated at 99%). I'm now using a 93% filter w/Mobil's High Mileage 5W-30 (non-EP) that likewise has ACEA approvals B1 & B5. BTW, should a 93% filter last 10k miles?

There are much better diesel rated oils out there that aren't any more expensive (the 0w-40 M1 European car 505 spec comes to mind). That B1/B5 stuff is pretty weak sauce for a tdi, imo. I'd use it in my ford/IH 7.3 w/ 4 gallon capacity if someone gave me a bunch for free. But not in the tdi.

If this oil isn't rated for diesel, then you shouldn't use it.
Use any 5W40 for an ALH. I've never seen one that isn't appropriate for that engine.
As for filters, I don't remember what the Mahle/Mann/Hengst cartridges were rated, but 93% sounds pretty low.

I am writing in hopes that you can reply to me. I was looking at the castrol oil selector and for my car it said i should get castrol edge 5w-30. My car is a 2002 VW Bora 1.9 TDI ASZ 131 horsepower. Tonight a friend of mine told me i should not have used that in my engine. Did i make a big mistake and should i change the oil in my car again? It has 142 000 km right now.
