We recommend that you follow the oil change service recommended by Volkswagen for your vehicle. A diesel engine oil can have more frequent oil change service, but that depends on several factors such as type of vehicle, usage, maintenance, type of motor oil used, and more. Our skilled and qualified technicians can guide you to the ideal service interval for your vehicle.
The diesel engine requires a different type of motor oil compared to what a gasoline engine requires. The motor oil for diesel engines contains a higher concentration of additives, including anti-wear load. The catalytic convertor of a diesel engine is designed to handle these additives, but a gasoline engine will not be able to. Also, diesel engines tend to run at a higher temperature than gasoline engines. This requires a motor oil that can withstand such temperatures. The viscosity of the diesel motor oil is also higher compared to the gasoline engine.
The purpose of motor oil is to provide lubrication to the engine so that the engine parts can move efficiently, and there is protection for the components from friction. Motor oil also helps regulate the temperature of the engine. Synthetic motor oil can enhance these features of the motor oil. It is designed to improve the vehicle's fuel efficiency, increase the life of the engine components, and allow the engine to deliver peak performance.
