As a car owner, you know that it’s important to use the right kind of oil in order to keep your vehicle running smoothly. But each car manufacturer has their own requirements specified for their vehicles. I know this makes it more difficult to choose the right oil for your car.
For instance, the VW 508 00 standard is one of the requirements issued by Volkswagen. And only some oil brands can meet this standard.
If you’re looking for approved oils that meet VW 508 00, look no further than this list! Whether you find an affordable option or a high-end brand, you’re sure to find something that fits your needs.
What are VW 508 00 Oil Specs?
VW 508 00 is a specification issued and approved by VW for petrol engine vehicles with low consumption. The certificate refers to the latest low viscosity engine oil of 0W20 to reduce friction and guarantee fuel efficiency. For the best performance, the manufacturers recommend changing the oil two years or after 19,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Even though the VW 508 00 standard applies to other subsidiary vehicles like Audi, Skoda, and Seat, it is not compatible with previous generations of VW oils. It is also essential to note that while VW 509 00 exists as a similar oil spec to VW 508 00, it only works for diesel engines.
VW 508 00 Oil Equivalent
Tempting as it is to resort to oil equivalents in times of an emergency, it is dangerous for your engine and can significantly reduce the oil emission values. For instance, you might want to use previous generations like VW 502 00 or VW 504 00 for a VW 508 00 standard. While it seems logical, it would help if you stuck with oils that strictly meet the VW 508 00 standards; at least you get a warranty.
In addition, many good-quality oils fail to gain VW approval since their producers did not submit them for testing. As a result, VW cannot expressly give an attestation to avoid warranty problems. Unfortunately, there is no telling what specific engine parts that car manufacturers designed for thinner oils. Therefore, it is safe to stick to your car manual and use oils that are approved for VW 508 00, avoiding ”recommended” for use with this standard.
