  14. Two Amsoil 5W-40 Questions

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok i know we have tons of oil threads on here and i've heard of some people swearing by Amsoil for a while but never really looked into it until now. I was talking to the service manager of my local VW dealer (the only mod friendly one) and he drives a 98.5 Audi A4 with our 1.8T engine and a...
