a few months ago it was Castrol 0-30 syn. oil coming from Germany which was abbreveated down too GC, well I was at a car parts store today and now they have Castrol 5-40 "made in Belgeim" so I guess it would be know as BC. Their big claim is that it meets VW TDI & Mercedes requierments.

Just a garden-variety 5w-40, meets TDI 505 spec, and turbo 502 spec but not Long-Life 503.01 spec like GC. I dunno if all 5w-40s meet diesel specs, like SynPower or Kendall, it's probally a lil better than them, maybe Rotella Syn too, but not as good as Mobil 1 5w-40 (Delvac-1).

I saw it at my local GI Joes also. It was $4.69 a quart. That beats $6.79 that VW charges.

must have gotten the spelling half way close for someone figured out what I tried to say, must have been my learning of 'fonics'.

Where did you find BC?
A lot of Speed Shops have it now. I used it in my old Audi, It works great, but gave away my last case, I prefer GC or M1 T&S for future use.
