Since I've noticed some members have repeatedly been searching for a dedicated list of Volkswagen
approved engine oils and some tried to help by uploading PDF sheets, which inevitably suffer from
getting outdated quite soon, I will post these links offcially provided by Volkswagen's "erWin" platform.
The very particular merit is, that these links, even though they remain the same, will always direct you
to the very LATEST list. Please remember these are global lists, you won't be able to obtain all of them
close to you.

in a somewhat numerical oder:

LATEST OFFICIAL VOLKSWAGEN 501 01 / 505 00 APPROVAL LIST:


LATEST OFFICIAL VOLKSWAGEN 502 00 / 505 00 APPROVAL LIST:


LATEST OFFICIAL VOLKSWAGEN 504 00 / 507 00 APPROVAL LIST:

LATEST OFFICIAL VOLKSWAGEN 505 00 / 505 01 APPROVAL LIST:


LATEST OFFICIAL VOLKSWAGEN 506 01 APPROVAL LIST:


LATEST OFFICIAL VOLKSWAGEN 508 00 / 509 00 APPROVAL LIST:


LATEST OFFICIAL VOLKSWAGEN 511 00 APPROVAL LIST:

https://erwin.volkswagen.de/erwin/downloadStaticFile/volkswagen/files/oil/step_51100.pdf

Hope I finally happened to provide the most comprehensive collection of Volkswagen approved oil.
For obvious reasons some VW approvals are more relevant than others. That's why I choose to pass
on approvals intended for use in 3rd world coustries (VW 508 88/509 99). Most relevant are certainly
VW 502 00, VW 504 00, VW 508 00 and perhaps the most recent VW 511 00 may also be interesting.

On a side note, VW used to provide a VW 502 00 / 505 00 / 505 01 list in the past
and perhaps some more "triple-approval" lists, though these don't exist anymore.
For some time (two years or something like that) Volkswagen approvals are limited
to just two at a time.


I’m waiting for a “what’s the Best VW oil specification?” Thread

That's about opinions, which is legit, however this one is aimed to provide facts, that
might be helpful to some. That said, I'm quite certain such threads do already exist.
You perhaps even made a post in one of them..... 😇
