Afternoon everyone. I’ve owned my 2015 Jetta SE (1.8T) for about a year and a half. Initially, I used Mobil 1 Euro 0w40 from Walmart since it was easy to get. I realize, however, that it doesn’t seem to meet all VW specs for newer vehicles (unless I’m missing something. More recently I’ve been using Motul 8100 X-Cess 5w40 at 5K OCI’s. As quickly as I put miles on the car, the Motul is getting pricy. I have no problem continuing with this oil if that’s what’s best for it, as I know German cars can be picky. Ive narrowed my options to the Motul 8100, Liqui Moly High Tech, Casterol German (If I can even find it) or Mobil 1 0w40. For a newer VW, what would you all suggest? I’m open to other oil options as well! All oil changes will be run for 5K with a VW OEM filter. Thanks!
