Yes according to this:All,
I purchased 5 qt of the Mobil 1 ESP 0W-30, which I understand to be VW 507.00 approved. However, it doesn't state so on the bottles, only ACEA C3. Is this still safe to use for my JSW with CJAA?
why dont they list any VW spec as meeting or exceeding (i get not being certified) but you would think they would list it if it is same/better than?Napa has Mobil 1 Delvac ESP 5w40 on sale for $19.99/gal. Napa is on the approved retailer list for the Mobil $11 rebate above ^^^ as well. Price after rebate is $9 a gallon, which is the cheapest I’ve gotten it since 2015. I’ve used this stuff in all my diesels, even ones requiring 507 and Dexos 2 as I believe it’s the highest quality diesel oil available from a major manufacturer.
Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5w40 meets the API CK-4 spec, and for ALH TDIs that is just fine. For those with PD engines, while API specs never appeared in owner's manuals, many folks have been using the API-spec 5w40s since roughly 2006 with no apparent negative consequences.why dont they list any VW spec as meeting or exceeding (i get not being certified) but you would think they would list it if it is same/better than?
Has anyone else noticed the new FRAM oil at Advance Auto Parts? Apparently Advance has purchased the FRAM name and its first oil offerings are getting pretty rave reviews from what I have seen. Is it a value oil? Or just a really good oil that is new to the market and a good deal in order to get a fan base, I dont know which. Anyway, I bought a 5 quart jug just to try it and have not yet changed it with this oil, but im wondering if anyone else has seen it or tried it?
Its only available in 5w-40, but seems most peeps use that weight, so maybe its all they need? The full synthetic shows 505.01 and I think 505.00 as well and maybe a few others. There are currently some deals that get you a free oil filter with it for like 25 dollars for a 5 quart jug and a filter, so that might be the cheapest Full Synthetic oil change you can do for a 505.01 TDI.
