By "they" I assume you mean VW officially? If so, it should be 5W-40 oil with a VW filter (which is probably made by Mann).Spud Bug said:What brand of oil and filter do they recommend for the NB.
Rotella is oil for a diesel - so I assume this means you have a TDI?finklejag said:I use the OEM filter, which is either Mann or Mahle. I use Shell Rotella T 5W-40 full synthetic. My mothers 01 bug hasn't burned any oil at all. You can pick up a gallon of Rotella T for around $13.74 at Wallyworld.

Rotella T and Mobil Delvac 1 are made for the diesel market. They are also can be used for gas engines. They are either SL or SM rated. They have a higher detergent content to clean diesel engines. So they can help clean our 2.slow really well. Another thing about diesel oil is they stay in grade. They don't shear down because of their higher viscosity.Porkchop said:Rotella is oil for a diesel - so I assume this means you have a TDI?
