    So Many 5W-40 VW 502 00 Oils to Choose From

    When I visited RT-Mart (a super store like WalMart in US) in Taipei,Taiwan, these are the 5W-40 oils with VW 502 00/505 00 specs on the shelf:












    These are 0W-40 oils with VW 502 00/505 00 specs:





    I even saw Honda and Toyota oils:





    I am very interested in German Aral Super Tronic 0W-40 oil, which also meets VW 503 01, due to its unique piston-like bottle. I’d try it on my Passat if it were available in US. And the same to Honda Genuine HG 5W-30 oil, which is not available in US Honda dealers, on my Honda CR-V.

    Hmm, I wonder how the M1 5W-40 that's sold in Taiwan is different from the one sold here.

    You might notice that Mobil 1 5-40 oils sold in Europe meet Spec 502 while those sold here don't .

    Correct. M1 5W40 here is the turbo diesel truck oil but it is one of the better Mobil product and should work well in you engine.

    Mobil 1 5W-40 with SuperSyn is made in the France by ESSO Societe Anonyme Francaise.
    Mobil Synt S 5W-40 fully synthetic oil is made in the EU.
    Mobil 1 0W-40 is the same as in US with quart bottle instead of liter bottle like the other two Mobil’s.

    Remember all Castrol products are now under BP.
