Hiya,

Please could somebody let me know which oil I need to use in a 2002 150bhp 1.8T (80k miles). I have read that 10w40 is the grade VW recommend. But on various websites I get advised 10w30.

Also do I need to be 100% sure which oil is in there currently? or would mixing be ok?

Final thing, should it be fully synthetic?

Many thanks for reading all that.

i used to use 10w40 in my old 1.8t 99 V reg as the garage recommended...but that car was leaking loads of oil when i sold it, vw specs are 5w40 i think so am gonna try this for my 52 plate AUM. The vw quantum is the one you want i think
Am planning an oil change in next couple of weeks going for this one, unless anyone else has any comments
