    Canít say for sure but in that kind of distance Iíd expect my golf to have used non up or at least an unmeasurable amount using the dipstick.

    Iíve done over 25,000 miles in the last year and not had to top up any oil in my Ď15 plate 2.0 diesel other than the oil changes at the last 2 services.

    How much have you had to top up? And are you certain enough was in there in the first place?

    I donít know what the figures are for the latest engines in the Golfs but when I was having problems with my last car (a 2007 PD diesel Touran) I found out that VW had an allowance of half a litre of oil per 1000km (620 miles) on those engines and I had used 1 litre of oil in 2000 miles so below the level for any official concerns from VW.

    VAG say that anything upto 0.5 litres per 620 miles is acceptable. If you think it is exceeding that they have a special test program that is initiated in ODIS where the oil is actually weighed to determine consumption.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I know it is obvious But.

    If i use the incorrect oil i might as well throw the warranty into the shredder.

    0W-20 is the oil specified by vw.

    Thankyou Crasher i will bear that in mind :-)
