Quick one for you oil gurus.
My old man has a 2003 130BHP Passat TDi. He's currently using Castol SLX to top it up between services - this is whats on the bottle :
VW SAE 5W-30; ACEA A3/B3/B4
VW 504 00/ 507 00
Now he's paying over £15 a litre so I said I'd check on Tradeclub and can get something similar for nearly half the price for him - the question is, will it be ok for his car. The Vx stuff has this on the TC listing :
Longlife Super synthetic 5W30 dexos2 -
SM/CF A3/B4/C3 GM-LL-A/B-025; 1 litre
My gut feeling is that it should be fine but what are your thoughts ?
