For reference purposes, I am posting the most recent Audi/VW 502.00 approved oil list. This is the standard (I believe) for all gasoline powered engines manufactured by Audi and VW. Here is the complete list of Audi Approved Oils. Unfortunately the favored GC is not among the list.

Actually, there is not a single Castrol oil on this list, which is rather peculiar. Also, wasn't the 502.00 spec replaced with an updated spec now?

VW 502 is based on the Generic ACEA A3-spec with thte additional cold-cranking and mpg stipulations. So, any oil meeting A3 can meet VW 502, which is to say it is not an impressive spec. The fact the 502 sequence is run on an old VW 2.0 makes it even less impressive. Consider the fact that some blends and dinos carry or carried A3. DuraBlend 10w-40 and Chevron Delo 15w-40 are both examples. As for the AoA version of "The List", it has SynPower 5w-30 on it, which is an error I confirmed with Valvoline. SynPower 5w-30 is formulated thinner in N.A. than Europe. So, imo, VW 503.01 is the minimum spec to look for running in an RS4 at ANYTHING over a 5000 mi interval.

VW 502.00 also includes the T-4 high temp test which is quite difficult to meet, ie a 248 hour dyno run with NO makeup oil allowed and specific limits for wear, deposits, oil thickening and TBN retention. So it's a significant step up from the generic ACEA A3 spec. Any oil meeting ACEA A3 cannot meet VW 502.00 by default.... TS

You can repeat this claim as often of you want, and it still isn't going to be true. It wasn't true last year when you started claiming this, it's not true now, and it won't be true next year either.

Well, d'oh! [Razz] Consider who ACEA is: BMW, Fiat, European Ford, GM Europe, Daimler Chrysler, Porsche, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Renault, Rolls Royce, Volkswagen and Volvo. The ACEA ratings are simply minimum standards of various tiers (of quality/application) that the European car manufacturers set. As far as I know, all those car manufacturers have their own oil approvals that go above and beyond ACEA ratings.

Please show me any petroleum based oils that meet VW 502.00? I don't think they're are any.... I'd agree that VW could use some newer specs that require testing in their multivalve, turbocharged engines....I believe that VW 505.01 and VW 503.01 are both superior to the old VW 502.00 spec. TS

Ted, I thought the T-4 Test was part of the A3 Sequence, but accept your correction as fact. Seeing A3 on dino and Blends does not instill confidence in the spec. I do wonder, exactly how VW 502, A3, GF-4 and SM stack up.

Almost any Group III 5W-40 meet VW 502.00! I don't remember any 5W-40 that didn't meet this spec.

No Dave, why don't you EXPLAIN what you are talking about? [No no] Can you do that? [LOL!] As far as "The List" goes, SynPower 5w-30 is not VW 502 in it's N/A formulation...noted and confirmed by me with a helpfull Valvoline tech. MaxLife Synth is absent as well as German Syntec 0w-30. [Roll Eyes]

Sorry then, you are absolutely right! There is no Group II to meet VW502.00 as far as I know.
