none in stock, but used the code to get some other parts i needed, cheers
Thanks have put a order in anyway even though OOS at the moment
Amazing price for 505.01 approved PD oil :-)
Thanks for that, out of stock but I have ordered + TCB.
As per dsldude - incredible value for PD VW oil. Shame I don't need any (might just buy some though!)
Not actually out of stock, it's a non-stock item (ie never in stock) available to order only. Your franchised dealer would probably charge around £60 for this or something similar with a service... so should be red hot!
It's not 505.01 oil for PD, you can check the actual specs on the Petronas website.

Yep sure seems to be 505.01

So If you have a PD engined car on Fixed servicing, it does not matter what make of oil you use as long as it meets VW 505.01 spec and is 5W-40
I have bought some and it has doesn't have 505.01 on the bottle only VW 502.00 / 505.00.

Please don't buy this thinking it's ok for PD it's not.

These are the specs on the bottle... mymesra.com.my/ind…cle

That's the spec from the Malaysian website, see here for UK ... pli-petronas.co.uk/Bro…=48
Yes.... but the spec on the UK website is wrong!

This is the spec from the back of the bottle... imageshack.us/f/3…pg/
Really hard to know here untill we get a bottle, could be quite possable its only recently had the 505.01 approvel,
seems stange its 505.01 on the uk Petronas website so its not just as if Eurocar parts have made the error.

When and where did you but it Jaguar9 and if possable could we have a full picture of front and back to compare
with what may come from Eurocar parts.
I bought it from ECP last week, other retailers selling this don't list the 505.01 specification so I think it's an error on the ECP website. You need the Syntium 3000 AV for the 505.01 spec which is a lot more expensive.
Here is the Petronas data sheet for Syntium 3000... http://flcf.onion.it/commonfile/ENG/pdf/1815_scat_ENG.pdf

So it looks as if the product supplied by ECP may either be to an older spec or the correct stuff in old packaging. Worth querying with them and Petronas and grounds for return & refund if incorrect.
what id pd?

pd is pump deuse which is a type of vw diesel engine which requires a very very high spec oil, hence they created a new standard for it, so a pd spec oil is about the best oil you can get
i've just had an online chat with them, and their sales guy has given me a returns number.

i really hoped it was up-to-spec, especially for this price.

the fact that they have given me a returns number doesn't mean that they've admitted the product is not upto spec - prob just that it's easier for them just to issue a refund.
i've just ordered
Petronas 4Ltr Syntium 3000 AV
Part No.: 521772501

using OILSPILL30

Total Cost: £18.19 (inc Vat)

still a great saving since i can't find anywhere that does 4L for less than £25 (excl. del)

ok - new development - i've contacted Petronas HQ - and they state that the oil supplied to ECP is manufactured in Spain, and meets the 505.01.

I then spoke to their National Sales Manager who is looking into if
1) it's a fault with the labelling of the container / can, and it should read 505.01
2) or if the oil is not 505.01, and the websites need to update their specifications, so that 505.01 is REMOVED.

He stated that the Malaysian website is correct - in that the Malaysian spec oil is not PD compliant, that it is NOT 505.01 spec. as it's manufacturered outside of the EU.

I told him about the online confusion, and that this thread existed.

He's going to come back to me to clarify details.

Hi, good price heat added.

Don't mean to hijack thread, but for all you that require 505.01 THIS might be a suitable option albeit more expensive, but still pretty good value for the specification and 5Litres.

Cheers
Right, final post - I've just had the national sales manager come back - and here's what I was told.

The Syntium 3000 was originally an oil for petrol cars. (it's been selling for the past three years).
It's been approved by VW (he said he's got the VW approval fact sheet) as a 505.01 specification, which is a diesel specific specification.
SO IT IS A 505.01 spec oil - so the label is incorrect......

This VW 505.01 approval ends at the end of this year - at which point, they're going to let the approval lapse,
And they're going to update the website, and remove the reference to 505.01.

He also said something along the lines of the fact that the 3000 AV is definitely a 505.01, and is the better oil anyway, and from a commercial point of view, that's maybe why they're not going to renew the approval on the lower priced product.

So - it's one of them, the product is apparently good to go as a 505.01 spec oil (cost me £13.30 (£19 -30%)).

I'd ordered the 3000 AV before I spoke to the sales manager, and that cost me £18.19.
So is the extra £4.89 worth the extra piece of mind, and for a better product ??

£18.19 is still cheaper than the £27 I paid back in November when I last did my service!

Either way - I'm impressed with the response I've had, considering I could just be some random on the internet !

LOL i dunno if I should pour this in my engine or not.

Wonder if its worth asking VW for a upto date list of 505.01 approved oils.
anyone received their order yet?
i have, both ! got them within 5 working days.
