            I noticed the difference right away when I started to use this product. I drive a Volkswagen Jetta and it really has made my car sound better and run a lot more efficiently. I recommend it highly. My car is now at 120,000 and it still sounds brand new.

            You often cannot get 5w 40 in stores anywhere and typically has to be ordered from Audi/VW or ECS. It's usually pricey too, like $6-10 per quart. This was a great value. I could change my oil every month for the cost of doing it every 3 months through Audi.

                    What can I say, I love this motor oil. I use it at every oil change on my VW. This oil is specific to european vehicles with performance in mind. The difference between this oil and filling up with a brand that is also synthetic but not formulated for euro vehicles, you will definitely feel the difference. This oil does alot for your engine as far as lubrication and helps resist wear on vital engine parts that would be costly to replace. I have always used Castrol oil in all my vehicles and have not had any problems with this brand.

                          Hi Neil, good question! No, this is not compatible with turbo diesel engines. You will require a motor oil that meets the VW 505.01 specifications. I do not see a compatible one available online. However I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance store for a compatible motor oil.

                          Hi Neil, I'm glad to assist you! The correct grade of oil to use will be listed in the automobile owner's manual. As far as whether to use a conventional or synthetic - that depends on the driver, the conditions and the type of driving that you do. Both conventional and synthetic oils will protect your engine, synthetic oils provide superior protection to conventional oils. Synthetics also provide much better protection at extreme temperatures and severe driving conditions. Some automobiles do require synthetic oils, this would also be mentioned in the owner's manual. According to the lubricating guide recommended for the 2005 Volkswagen Passat Station Wagon TDI, it meets VW 505 01 specification. Castrol EDGE Professional 5W-30 meets this requirement and is available online. Regrettably, Castrol EDGE 5W-40 does not meet the requirements of your vehicle, and is not recommended to use.

                          I'm happy to help, Jiawei! The oil change interval of a motor oil is not set by the oil manufacturer. The change interval is set by your vehicle manufacturer. Synthetic motor oils will resist breaking down much better than conventional oils. If your vehicle manufacturer allows for extended oil change intervals when using synthetic oils, the Castrol Edge will be able to meet those requirements.

                          If you would like to extend your drain intervals past the manufacturer's recommendations you may find that purchasing oil analyses from a company that does them to see if the oil can meet those longer intervals in your vehicle. These are generally done by fleets as it allows them to get full use of the oil before doing an oil change.

                          If you could please provide your vehicle's year, make, model and engine size, we can look up the correct oil change interval for your vehicle.

                          I'm happy to help, Ian! Without the year of the SAAB I don't have a specific recommendation for your vehicle for motor oils. I would suggest to ensure that the API Performance Level meets or exceeds your engine's requirements. According to the specifications this oil meets SN. I also recommend ensuring that 5W-40 is the correct viscosity for your engine. In general specifications starting with S are for Gasoline engines and those starting with C are for diesel. Having the SN would indicate that it will perform in a gasoline engine, although I would make sure that it does meet the correct performance level and viscosity by checking your oil cap or owners manual.

                          With reference to your inquiry on the Castrol Edge with Syntec Technology 5W-40 Fully Synthetic Motor Oil (1 Quart) - Part No. 06249, a 5W-30 and a 5W-40 or any 5W-XX motor oil will behave the same on cold starts. Their viscosity and so their behavior will differ once they are up to operating temperature. In most inhabited regions a synthetic 5W-40 will be OK, since it will behave at least adequately from -10 to +45 or so.

                          We apologize for the confusion caused. Both the 1 Quart and 5 Quarts of Castrol Edge with Syntec Technology 5W-40 Fully Synthetic Motor Oil are not high mileage motor oils. We will have this updated in the product specifications. You can check the Castrol GTX 5W-30 High Mileage Motor Oil (1 Quart) - Part No. 06440 which is an high mileage motor oil. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
