It was in conjunction with the Pep Boys offer that I used last time. I have found the 5 gallon buckets for $150 with free shipping and no tax. The Beetle isn't bad but the new to me 2004 Excursion diesel has a huge capacity(15 quarts).

Type: Engine Oil
Product Name: Liqui Moly Top Tec 4200 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil - 5 Liter Jug
Price: CDN$ 69.96
Source: Amazon.ca
Location: online on Amazon.ca from Autozon Canada

$9.58 shipping and no tax.

The only place that I can find this oil locally is from Napa and they sell it for CDN$ 99 plus tax.
Maybe (probably) you can get it at this price where you live, but for me, that's a steal of a deal. I can also get my filters at a good price from Autozon. I hate that I have to get oil shipped to me but what else can I do?

The other Mobil-1 oils are available for the spring rebate also, including TDT:

Looked on the Mobil site at the specification of the super synthetic, various weights however found none that met the VW 507 00 spec. Also remember talking about the TDI oil and was told it's not a diesel oil (not sure what that was all about) If the spec does not cover VW 507 00 I would not use it.

Right- there's only one M1 that is low ash, not sure if that qualifies for the sale. Many of us use the M1 5W-40 TDT and M1 0W-40 in our older TDIs.

I have been watching craigslist.com for my area. I have been able to buy at about the retail price, motor oil, air filters and cabin air filters. With everybody turning in their TDIs, there are bargins out there.

Not trying to hijack this thread and if it's answered elsewhere please forgive me. What is the advice of the day on oil flavor for my 2006 PD engine. Time for an oil change and can't seem to find any approved oils locally. TSB 2012855/11 from 11/30/2010 had recommended two Mobil one products, the ESP and the Super 3000, neither of which I can find today. As a matter of fact, if you use the oil finder tool on the Mobil website it ends the search by saying Mobil makes NO APPROVED oils meeting 505.01 spec at all. I plan to take a trip to the dealer tomorrow and get some Castrol Edge but that's a 40 mile round trip. So once again, what is the current advice. Thanks

Many TDI PD owners have been using API-spec 5W40 oils like Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck and Shell Rotella T, with very good results, since the first few months after the PD engines were introduced in 2004 in the US and Canada.

I spent/wasted about 20 minutes trying to find the thread started by the first guy to experiment with Mobil 1 or Shell Rotella T 5w40 -- probably back in 2005 or maybe 2006 -- then gave up. The main thing to think about back then, when the PD TDIs were still under warranty, was that using a non-VAG 505.01 spec oil would void the warranty. But that is no longer an issue, and the engines last just as long with an API-rated oil.

I use Rotella T6 (full synthetic) in my 2005 BEW. Wal-Mart carries it, and it's cheap.
