How safe is it to use this oil in our 1.8T engines when it doesn't have the ILSAC GF-3 certification that VW recommends in the manual? Will using this oil void our warranties?

It's a group III based diesel fleet oil. It would probably meet all the specs if they tested it, but there are better oils out there.
