Pick my next oil for me

Sep 8, 2020
Okay, been deep down the rabbit hole of "boutique" vs normal euro oils and have compiled a list that I want to try out, as well as post UOA's after the fact. I'll post my list below, which one should I give a go first? Many of these are purposely less common.

•Liqui Moly Molygen 5w40
•Liqui Moly Leichtlauf 5w40
•Volkswagen Audi Genuine 5w40
•Total Quartz 9000 Energy 5w40
•Motul X-Max 0w40
•Pentosin Pento High Performance

Lemme know! Open to others as well
Without knowing what licenses you need my vote is motul. Had good success with luqui moly in my vw and audi though.
those are all good oils no doubt but i honestly wouldn't spend the boutique oil money. Quaker state euro 5w-40 is great. vw 502/505 approved with long life ratings but under at $19 a jug at Walmart but id check availability online first.
If anyone can post actual proof that one oil with a 502 00 approval is better than another with the same approval that would make the choice easier.

And to the OP, go by approval and not brand name nor grade.
