Thanks, I was Multi-tasking and left out the most important part. The 0W30 M1 ESP 507 was also the same price, didn't give it a thought (if i was way up north, well then maybe). I probably should have gotten some for the Jeep, but I had just ordered 10 liters of Pentosin 5w40 (MB229.51)(505.01 too)(from FCP Euro)witch I prefer for it anyway, and looking around for the extra liter/qt after I ordered is how I found the NAPA deal anyway.
I Did say "Apparently" for a reason.NAPA's Valvoline sale oil is the wrong one for our common rail TDi cars.
Valvoline makes two 5W30 European motor oils for North America:
Only the second one (XL-III) is VW 504.0/507.0 certified and thus suitable for our CR TDi's. The first one is sometimes badged MST, which is how NAPA lists it on their website via the link donDavide posted above. NAPA does carry the XL-III, but only in a 5-gallon box for $137 (regular price, not on sale), which is $6.85/qt.
- VALVOLINE™ EUROPEAN VEHICLE SAE 5W-30 MOTOR OIL
- VALVOLINE™ EUROPEAN VEHICLE XL-III SAE 5W-30 MOTOR OIL
If you want to validate my info, here are my sources:
Here's the product page for the Valvoline European Vehicle motor oils.
If you click the "PI SHEET" link near the top of the product page, you'll get a PDF with detailed specs for each oil in this family. MST is on page 3, and XL-III is on page 5. This is where you'll find the specific VW certifications listed. Here's the direct link:
And here is a link with the specific vehicle info form NAPA's website which says it is for a Common Rail Diesel,I can't see the back of bottle and doesn't list specs which is why again I said apparently.I Did say "Apparently" for a reason.
Yes, it was quite confusing, and it took me a while to figure it out. I think the oil NAPA has on sale is for other makers' common rail engines, like Mercedes. Thanks for your contributions!And here is a link with the specific vehicle info form NAPA's website which says it is for a Common Rail Diesel,I can't see the back of bottle and doesn't list specs which is why again I said apparently.
At this moment the price is currently $25.80, which is $5.16 per quart.WalMart.com currently shows $28.80 for Castrol EDGE 5W-30 LL Advanced Full Synthetic Motor Oil 5-quart jug. Online only. Free shipping if the order total exceeds $35. That works out to $5.76 per quart for VW507 before sales tax.
$24.04 Wallyworld price is back.I just bought some of that Castrol Edge 5w-30 LL from https://www.walmart.com/ip/Castrol-...d-Full-Synthetic-Motor-Oil-5-Quarts/684753334 and it is 507 spec. It was $24 and some change (I bought some other stuff to qualify for free shipping aka $35 spent or more).
