There are only four quarts in each one-gallon jug.

The ad simultaneously mentions “gallon” and “5 qt”. Many store jugs are in fact now 5 quart jugs, so it behooves the purchaser to confirm.

Well, I don't know all the specs of T6 but whatever they are they are not and do not meet VW 504/507 and it is not VW approved for your engine. use it if you like your car will not explode. Long term you may have an exhaust component premature failure. ie. dpf.

Smile Mobil1 ESP 0w30 for $4 a quart after rebate!

There is a great deal on Mobil 1 ESP 0w30 for $6 per quart at Napa Auto Parts until May 31st. Went I went to a local Napa yesterday, they were out of stock at that store but they brought it from another store 15 miles away this morning. If you don't have a Napa nearby you can order a case of 6 for $43 at Summit Racing, with free shipping on orders over $99 otherwise $10 shipping. Mobil 1 ESP 0w30 is an approved VW 50700 low ash oil.

https://www.mobil.com/english-gb/pas...bil-1-esp-0w30

Don't forget you get a $12 rebate from Mobil for 5 quarts of any Mobil1. You can get up to 2 $12 rebates. Napa does not stock any Mobil1 filters. Ignore the list of participating retailers, it's not a complete list.

Thats a great deal for 507 oil, but any concern running the thinner oil in my 2012 Passat TDI, especially now with summer here?

Thanks for sharing. As an aside note I called my nearby NAPA store and ask the to read me the back of the bottle spec approvals and VW 507 was not listed. So I wonder if there has been a change of formulation to get the VW 507 approval or not. I also called ExxonMobil and the person on the line could not tell me if the formulation has changed recently or not to meet VW 507.

For somebody who has recently purchased the Mobil 1 X1 ESP 0W-30, could you please post a picture of the back of the bottle with the approvals.

I just bought 10 quarts for 59.99, and got $24 rebate back. $3.60 a quart for Mobil 1 ESP is pretty damn good. It does not have VW 507 rating. But it has MB's ratings, and is full of text about being safe for all new diesel engines with diesel particulate filters. F' it Im going for it for the price. If I blow up my NMS Passat Ill let y'all know. Oil just changed at 137K. Cheers brethren.

I just bought 10 more quarts Im good for 4 oil changes now.

My MPG went up quite a bit. I know they are both 30W when the engine is hot, and it shouldnt make any difference, so dont flame me. But I have NEVER got 44.7 MPG average on my 1 hour (non-freeway) morning commute. Ever.

Are you accounting for temperature and wind? I would submit that those would be far greater contributors than the slight viscosity difference between 0w30 and 5w30.
