Oil for Volkswagen TDI Diesel Engines
I have a new Volkswagen TDI diesel and the warranty says it must use only VW oil, which is synthetic (made by Castrol). I've used Mobil 1 in all my cars for 20 years and would like to stick with Mobil 1, Help.

Unfortunately we do not currently have an oil in the United States for this particular application which requires VW 505.01.
