VW Oil, Volkswagen Oil and Oil for VW from Opie

If you are looking for VW Oil then you have come to the right place

VW introduced their own specifications for engine oil in the 1990s to ensure that oils met a minimum standard suitable for their vehicles. Over the years, the requirements made on oils have increased and the VW oil specifications have moved on from the early 500.00 specification to the latest 504.00 and 507.00 specifications.

VW oil specifications are now used for Audi, Skoda, Seat and Volkswagen cars.

VW 500.00 oil

Oils listed in this section meet the VW 500.00 specification. This is an “old” oil specification and is applicable to engines built before model year 2000 (up to August 1999). Oils with an approval made post March 1997 will have been given an alternative, later VW specification.

This oil can be used in older petrol and some diesel engines, except from those referred to under other specifications. Not suitable for vehicles using extended service intervals.
