View Full Version : oil spec API SL/CF ACEA A3/B3
Please let me know what the equivalent VW spec is for the above. Thanks
They vary, and VW specs have little to with ACEA or API specs. Why is it you want to know?
Oilman thanks for reply. I was advised to get ASDA's own synth oil for 18 quid and it only had those API /ACEA specs, hence the query. I have now visisted the local store of GSFcarparts.com and they offered me Carlube synth, VW505.00, for my 2001 1.9TDi Alhambra.
I take it you dont have a PD diesel engine fitted? If so then a good 10w-40 semi synthetic or better still a good 5w-40 synthetic is ideal.
GSF used to supply Fuchs oils and they are very good (factory fill for VAG) and you can find them here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-394-fuchs-engine-oil.aspx The XTR 10w-40 or the Supersyn 5w-40 will be fine. GSF have now moved to Carlube, a very bad move for GSF as Carlube is pretty cheap and chearful to say the least.
