Hello, I'm using the Mobil 1 5W40 TDT and would like to know how miles can I get out of the 5w40 TDT before it need to be changed? I'm running it in my late model Vw beetle 1.8T...Thanks😊

Only way to really see how far it would be good till is to draw a sample and send it in for a used oil analysis (UOA) after a given period of mileage or hours.

2nd thread.....

1) Use correct VW502.00 oil. (see list on Audi's website)
2) Use the larger oil filter to increase capacity (068 115 561B or equivalent)
3) Regular oil changes, 5000 miles max

Mostly longitudinal engines due to smaller sump. Any good synthetic oil will cut it as long as HTHS is min. 3.5. TDT in that engine will work.

Yes.....that post is from 2008....so VW502 is now superseded with WV 504/507 anyway
Your "request" with HTHS min 3.5 is in place.....and covers "just everything".in 10w40....5w40....5w30.....from ACEA A3/B4 derivates ( VW 502....BMW LL-01 .....MB 229.3....229.5)
To C3 derivates (VW 504/507.....BMW LL-04.....MB 229.31....229.51....229.52)....

Even Acea Ex will work OK in 00 era gasser!

I had that engine in Passat as well as my roommate.
SHe was neglecting so much that car that one day when I was checking oil in her car, dipstick did not have anything on. I was using SHell Rotella T6 in her car as it was using bit of an oil and T6 was good choice.
SHe sold car with 270k miles.

The Americanized Passat did get a 1.8 TSI motor for a while which replaced the 2.5L motor, before getting replaced by a detuned 2.0TSI budack cycle motor.
