The specs for this AG oil match the specs for more expensive VW/AUDI/VAG Shell oil - 507.00 (or Porsche c30 spec).

I would be happy using this in most modern engines that require a ACEA a3/b3/b4 oil.

The exception are most Ford engines and Mazda engines that call for a5/b5 oil. For those you need the Shell Helix AF oil

Is this oil ok to use in a toyota corolla (2006) ?

Most likely, but you'd need to state which Toyota corolla you have. Engine size, and if petrol or diesel. I should imagine this would meet or supercede your manufacturer specs.

Yes, this oil would be suitable for your car. Toyota recommends 5W30 synthetic oil with an interval of 15000 kilometres/one year (roughly 12000 miles-ish I think). Although 5W40 synthetic is also listed as safe to use. It's 3.7 litres plus 0.2 for the filter. Most suggest 5W30, and I would agree. Although, if your engine is high mileage, burns or drops oil, I'd go for a 5W40 instead and change it a little earlier. If you're using a top quality 5W30 oil like this and doing less than 5K miles a year, I wouldn't rush to change it at 12 months. Some would shoot me for saying that, but it's a bit overkill unless you're doing at least 7 or 8000 miles on a car like yours. Definitely go for genuine oil filter though if you can. Hope that helps

I've personally only had and worked on German cars for the past 20 years as I love them (although I'm aware that Jap cars are probably the best made cars in the world). Many suggest that Mann filters are equal to, if not even the same as OEM quality BMW, and VAG filters. For instance, I know that VAG used to use NGK plugs, so I never purchased VAG ones because you're basically paying more than twice the price for the logo on them. I've used Mann filters myself with no issues whatsoever, except on two BMW M cars that I always used genuine everything on. But it's important to remember that Mann filters are German filters, known for their German OEM quality on German cars. How good their version of Japanese filters are is something I personally have no knowledge or experience of, which is why I'd recommend spending a few extra quid on a genuine one. It's your call though, and I doubt you'd have any problems either way

Apparently this version is designed to produce less emissions, particularly for diesel cars. Top quality oil is top quality oil, and this stuff will almost certainly meet or supercede anything your manufacturer would use. The problem is when you're putting in lower spec oil than your car is specified for. It's totally not true that 'oil is oil'. You're not paying for the brand, you pay for the performance of the oil and its anti-sludging properties. Its the most important part of maintenance. This stuff is used by BMW main dealers in relatively high performance stuff, so I wouldn't worry at all.

One last question my local toyota dealer sometime has offers on the oem oil for £20 would you that's a better choice then the shell oil?

That's okay I would say that if you've been using that oil, and it's a good price, then why not stick with it? But if you're due a service and can't get it, I'd recommend fully synthetic Shell Helix, Castrol Edge, Mobil 1, or Millers if the price is right. These oils are designed to meet very high demands, and will more than likely be overkill on an average car, so it's probably not necessary for you unless the price is right. I don't know what oil Toyota main dealers use, but any of those oils will be at least as good, if not better. As long as you don't put cheap or the wrong viscosity oil in it your engine will thank you for it

Depends if you want to go long life service interval or not. Although there's technically no such thing as long life oil, a 5W30 can be used for longer intervals than a 10W40. I'd personally go for the this deal unless your T4 drinks oil heavily, as the HX7 is not fully synthetic either.

Most OEM Toyota oil filters are made by Denso (no car manufactuer makes their own filters).

I would personally trust a filter from any major OEM supplier (Purflux, Mann, Hengst, Bosch etc). And I would go by oil spec rather then viscosity.

If it's 2009 then it will be a 2.0TDI, but you're right on the cusp of the injection type changing from PD to CR - not sure if that makes a difference or not to oil spec.

Try looking at the oil specs pdf for the ECT oil VS the AG oil.

The viscosity at various temperatures is equal the viscosity index value is equal. And just because they've each passed different tests is simply because those were the tests shell paid for.

Both are super high quality fully synthetic. The most important things are weight (5w30 in this case) and the ACEA choice;

A3/B3/B4 are where the HTHS (high temperature high shear) value is more than or equal to ≥3.5

A5/B5 specification is similar to A3/ B4 but with lower HTHS viscosity, ≥2.9 and ≤3.5


The A/B class's A5/B5 oils have lower HTHS viscosities, which means that they provide better fuel economy but they may not provide adequate protection in engines that are not designed for them. ACEA A3/B3 and A3/B4 on the other hand require oils with higher HTHS viscosities that may not provide as good fuel economy as an A5/B5 oil but may offer better engine protection in certain engine designs.

So basically EVERY engine is fine with A3/B4 but it can result in lower MPG in engines designed for A5/B5 (usually Ford and Mazda engines - but even some of the recent Ford/Mazda engines call for A3/B4....for example the mazda mx-5 would need a3/b4)

Every German/French brand car calls for A3/B4 so you can safely say this is a great buy for most modern engine cars.

Damn. Pretty sure my Bora uses 5w-40w
This and the AG are both C3 which means it's low sulphur and good for DPF.

Yes C3 is recommended for cars fitted with DPF.
