    Sorry, maybe my question was a bit obscure. What I meant was: does a description such as "VW 507" specify whether it's a mineral or a synthetic oil, or can there be a VW 507 synthetic as an alternative to a VW 507 mineral?

    The VW 507.00 stamp of approval is only given to new oils that meet the requirements of a DPF'd diesel and is only a synthetic oil from my understanding. It's to do with the particles created once the exhaust gases flow out the back of the car. If they were too big then the DPF would get blocked up. This would happen if you use 505 in the car.

    It has lots of additives to cope with the performance of a modern high powered Diesel engine.

    The 507 is suited to their DPF'd engined cars but is also useable in a non-dpf'd car.

    Currently the 2.0 tdi 170bhp has a DPF but it is only just available to order on the 1.9tdi and 2.0 tdi 140bhp.

    Well worth the extra money in my opinion, no black soot out the back of the car when you have one.

    So, as it's the latest and best oil then you'll do no harm at all in using it in your 1.9tdi 130bhp. Be warned though that it can cost 14 a litre and although you won't, I only get 7-10,000 miles before I need to fill up with another litre.
