Hi,
I have a 2000 B5 V6 due for an oil change. WalMart stocks Rotella 5w40 SYNTHETIC for $12 a gallon. I used Rotella 15w40 Dino in my 8v Rabbit for years with no complaints. Has anybody tried the synthetic and with what results? Or should I just order the Pentosin for twice the $$?
Thanks...

I've heard that the 5w40 synth from rotella is designed for diesels. If that's the case, I imagine you could still use it but I'm not an oil expert.

It is a very informative thread. After reading that, I do not think I will go with the Rotella but rather order the Mobil 1 SuperSyn 0w40.

They are the same price but I just have to wait a day or so for the Mobil 1 rather than taking the Rotella off the shelf. I will just buy a few at a time.
