Thanks, VolManiac! Orange you a Vol?

(We lived in Knoxville from 1987-1990, when we moved here to Colorado Springs.)

Here's another thing we miss about East Tennessee.

TDI YWG has a 2003. The ALH uses 505.00, and would be fine with several Mobil 1 varieties at walmart for $22-$25 for a gallon/5 quarts, as well as the full syn Rotella T6 5W40 for $21.

Napa has Valvoline MST 5w-40 for $5.50 per liter.

They also have Valvoline Synpower XL-III 5W30 $133 for 19L. That’s $33 per oil change if you need 507.

Depends on your TDI.

The early ones were 505, the PDs were 505.01, and then along came 507.

I would only recommend 507.00 for the CR engines, and a robust CJ-4 or CK-4 5w40 for all older TDIs, VE or PD.
