See link to data sheet for this oil. Looking to use this in my 2012 VW Touareg TDI.

http://www.epc.shell.com/Docs/GPCDOC_X_cbe_24855_key_140007054903_20120227110_5.pdf

Notice in the 2nd paragraph it says:

Also suitable for turbo-charged and inter-cooled direct injection high performance diesel engines fitted with
'blow-by' recirculation and exhaust gas recirculation without particulate filters

It also states that it is VW 507 approved. How can this be?

it can not be a 507.00 if it can not be used with DPF

It's a low SAPS oil. In Europe, low SAPS oils can also be used in gasoline cars (so no DPF.)

If it meets the spec that your Tourage calls for, I don't see why not.

By the way, M1 ESP 5w-30 is marketed very similarly:
http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXENPVLMOMobil_1_ESP_Formula_5W-30.aspx

So there is nothing strange in how SOPUS markets Ultra Euro L. The problem is finding this stuff. I think only Amazon carries it.

PaJohn, looks like you are still under warranty on that VW like I am on my Passat TDI. Why not just use the VW-recommended oil, the Castrol LL03 which is what most of the dealers use? Do you still have free maintenance?

Nope, past 36k miles. Just felt like trying something new. Don't always drink the same beer either grin

^This. And all diesels without DPF. It's fine. The "Also suitable" comment just expands the pool of engines which can use this oil.
