Im going to be taking a long road trip with my 2013 TDI, and like any good sole, i want to make sure i carry extra motor oil just in case along with me. Can anyone tell me what weight and viscosity i should be using in my 2013 TDI. The 3 dealers in my area refuse to tell me, without trying to upsell me on all sorts of other service i dont need.

Treat your TDI with respect. There is no "up sell" when it comes to the oil that goes into your engine.

Use Full Synthetic 5W30 or 5W40 or oil that meets or exceeds VW standard 505.00.

This is the oil that will be put in at your first oil change at 10,000 miles.

That is not correct. You must use synthetic 507 spec oil in your CR TDI engine. Anything else will have negative consequences on your engine, DPF, and powertrain warranty. Do not use the above mentioned oils.

Castrol EDGE Professional LL03 5W30 Engine Oil. Meets VW spec 507 and is what VW recommends. You can only get it at a dealer or online. I get mine from here:

http://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/40478/Engine-Oil-Fully-Synthetic-SAE-5W-30-G0521951L/
Yup, it's about $8.60 at the Dealership also, for a LITER... (it's imported from Germany). GET IT FROM THE PARTS DEPT! (Don't even ask the service guys... they want to sell labor).

Some NAPA auto parts stores have Lubro-Moly 507 Spec that's okay, but it's usually sold in 5 Liter bottles.

Personally... The diesel will be fine, just check it. Diesels don't usually burn much oil... if they did it would be bad (they'd basically run forever). It's due to the extreme seal/compression diesels have.

I bought a liter of 507 (don't use anything else) Castrol SLX, and 15K later... still haven't broken the seal or had the level go below full.

You have a pre common rail TDI...

All "Common Rail" TDI's (Any TDI produced from 2009 and up) requires 507.00 Oil (ultra low-ash), anything else and you'll be having a REALLY expensive DPF replacement in your future).

I would highly recommend the Shell Rotella 5-40 full synthetic. You can get it at Walmart, $22 for 1gallon.
It is designed for diesel engines and meets or exceeds the recommendation by VW. The manual will call out 5-40 for tdi.

VW has a couple oil specifications. Does the Rotella meet the 507 spec? To the best of my knowledge, Shell doesn't offer a 507 oil.

I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think this is a 507 spec oil. I don't believe any Shell products are 507 spec. You absolutely must use 507 oil in the CR TDI engine.

Hello all,

Thanks for the input, as I've been researching what oil to put into my trusty steed (2013 Passat TDI, btw) having just hit the 40K mile marker. So having found what I was looking for, I thought that I'd provide that list, along with the URL (at the bottom) to the masses. List is current as of 2010, so it's not the mot recent, but should prove helpful to most.
