Question:
Can Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30 Be Used in a Volkswagen Golf TDI?
I see that your Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30 has the Volkswagen 504.00/507.00 approval. I have a 2005 Golf diesel that requires Volkswagen 505.01. Your specification sheet says that the ESP Formula can be used in applications requiring 505.01, but it says except for pump duse TDI without longlife service and DPF between 1999 and 2003. My Golf is a pump duse TDI and does not have longlife service or a DPF but wasn't built between 1999 and 2003. Can I use this oil in my 2005 TDI? Thanks

Answer:
