    I'm running a vw tdi and the recommended is long life, look it up in your manual.

    Castrol Edge TURBO DIESEL 5W-40 is the best

    Must be true if Castrol advertising says so



    Never seen there advertising. Just going on past experience as i have been servricing my own cars for the last 15 years. Edge is good quality oil but hey dont go by my word or there advertising.

    Is it just me or is "what's the point" a ****.

    I have a Mazda 6 turbo diesel and personally use castrol edge. Take mine to national tyres who do the oil change for Inc new filter for less than cost of 4 ltrs from most retailers.

    That depends what service schedule your car is on,there are two.normal and long life.

    If your passat has the VW PD diesel engine(depends how old it is) the oil has to meet a special VW specification,it will say on the bottle itself if it does, not all do so be careful.

    First it was the best and now its only good, To think yourself qualified … First it was the best and now its only good, To think yourself qualified to judge how good an oil is because you have changed your own a few times is a joke, so thx for saying i don't have to take your worthless advice



    You come on here to give advice and you get a cretin like yourself cursing people like they have done something wrong. First of all mr know it all i havnt changed oil 'a few times' Try a few HUNDRED times. Now crawl back under the little rock you wormed your way out and go buy your wilkinson own brand oil.

    He asked what the best oil is i said edge is the best, i then later said its good quality oil, what shall i say its best quality oil? will that please your small brain?

    You got a good comment to say about oil? cos it looks like once again someone on here has a small winkle and is trying to take it out on others for no reason.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Went to Asda and got the Edge oil for £30. Apparantly its for £45 in Halfords.

    LOL What a crap oil if you feel it won't protect your engine for more … LOL What a crap oil if you feel it won't protect your engine for more than a couple of weeks without being changed, why else would you need to change it 100's of times in 15 years



    Once again jumping to conclusions without evidence. If you want to know my personal life i am a car trader, i have 5 cars outside my house right now and thats not many compared to usual. I service cars regularly not just my own. I get any oil FREE and i choose to use castrol edge after experimenting various oils.
