3.0L TDI

Anyone know if the 3.0L TDI's are prone to high wear metal readings? I realize it is my first test on this car, but these numbers are a bit concerning I think. I did just purchase this car about 15K miles ago.

I used that oil a few months back and didn't like it at all, was ok at first then started to breakdown increasing fuel usage and engine oil temps. It looked the goods when I researched it but yea not good for my car. All of this is just what i noticed i didn't get a UOA or anything so you know...

The oil suffered "breakdown" which caused increased fuel consumption and higher engine temperatures? That's some conclusion you've drawn there.

Has a very high viscosity index? What are you talking about? If so, how did you measure the viscosity index change? What were the engine oil temperatures you measured and how much did it increase as the breakdown occurred? I'm interested because higher viscosity results in a higher oil temperature, your use of the term "breakdown" generally means the oil has a reduced viscosity. This would lower oil temperaure. I've suffered no breakdown, "buddy." Just asking for details on what you yourself posted.

haha i found a simple explanation for you. Why does it have a high VI... https://www.machinerylubrication.com/Read/1327/viscosity-index-improvers

Its called friction, im sorry it doesn't conform to the your bob established and promoted ideals. What causes wear... haha

Hmmmm see my 40k and 30k OC of my 2.0 TDI. I don't think it's the oil.
