TDI Club members have been using API-rated oil in PD engines since about 18 months after the PD engines arrived in the US and Canada. Back then they were CH-4 rated oils like Shell Rotella T and Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck. Specs have changed and the current spec is CK-4.

At first people thought the VAG 505.01 oil was needed to protect cam lobes. But the PD cams have failed regularly even when the 505.01 oil was used.

I don't have a PD engine, but if I did I would not hesitate to use one of the widely available API-rated oils. You might start a new thread to ask people how their engines have fared when not using the specified oil.

I just got a 5L jug of Pentosin HP2 for $28.79 at RockAuto. No idea if this is a sale price, and if so, for how long.

$39.xx total including a Mann filter & shipping, not bad.


Alternatively, not quite as cheap, but for local purchase, Napa carries the Liqui Moly oils. Your local store may not have all types in stock but should be able to order it in a day or so. For the PD/505.01 oils, it's currently $43.49 for the Diesel High Tech and $45.49 for the Top Tec 4100.

For those of you in Canada,
Canadian Tire has pennzoil euro LX 0w30 (vw507) in 5L jugs on sale for $31.34. Plus pennzoil has a $10 mail in rebate for each 5L jug. So $21.34 for a jug of vw507 oil is pretty cheap up here in Canada land!

UFA has the 18.9L pails on right now for $129.


shell has a $35 rebate going on right now.


thats 18.9L of t6 for $95... good luck beating that. its usually $167 at wal mart.

Canadian tire has it for $133 right now, so all Canadians can get the deal and not just Alberta residents. $133-35 is $98 for 18.9L
