I'm thinking about the Valvoline Synthetic/Dino blend oil for the auto-RX treatment of my 1.8T motor with 60K miles on it. Any problems with this thinking? I'm trying to save some money.....

I'm also using the Fram PH-2815 oversized filter.

I'm sure I'll hear it from you guys!!!!!

thanks....

Ditch the fram filter and use the dino oil only for the rX treatment then go back to syn. I change out my syn every 5000 miles so its about every 3-5 months for me.

if you want your warranty to be intact, it has to meet 502.00 specs. Dino oil does not . . . . its up to you.
