Still trying to get the right oil for my '07 3.6 Passat. Does the Mobil Super synthetic oil meet the VW 502 specs?

And I'm pretty sure that most of these car company specs are referring to extended change intervals. My car burns so much oil that I don't even bother with the VW specs anymore. :lol:

That's not good lol. You should always stick to OEM spec fluids.

I'm trying Rotella T 5w40 synthetic now. Something's gotta work in this car.
Does it meet specs?
Not for the VW gas cars. Works for the TDI's tho.
Rotella T6 is not on the list, but as the properties that will exceed VW502.00 and has decent low enough SAPS (1%).

It is not suitable for TDI's with DPF's, as it needs less SAPS (0.8% max). VE & PD TDI, it's fine for them.
