Is anyone using VW502.00 (or other spec etc.) instead of VW508.00 in a newer VW? #5403154 04/14/20 03:30 PM

I ask because i've been placed into the position of having to do so because VIOC significantly overfilled my Passat this weekend and i did not realize it until Sunday (thread link below). So i drained the oil and replaced it with Mobil1 0W-40 (VW502.00 and VW505.00). I've only driven about 35 miles since the change and noticed nothing different although i know i will take a small MPG hit versus the VW508.00 0W-20.

Leaving warranty discussion out of this, what if any differences should i notice during this OCI?

Mobil1 0W40 is VW 502.00 too. 505.00 is OLD specification.
Personally, I would leave 0W40 in and never looked back.

Added the 502 in an edit. Thanks.

Yes, that's the opinion of a few folks i've asked. Even the VW tuner near me, NOVITECH who also does routine VW/AUDI maintenance.

At the time i was looking, there was no Castrol 0W40 available. I've always thought the difference between these two is like splitting hair.

How dare you? Difference between Mobil1 0W40 and Castrol 0W40 is BITOG difference! It is the most important measurement of quality!

On serious note, as everyone pretty much knows here, I would run Mobil1 0W40 any day over 0W20 in that engine. Actually, if I had that Passat, I would change oil immediately after bringing it to my garage.

But seriously,

I also ask because i have more 0W40 meant for the Santa Fe 2.0T, but have Shell Rotella GT i can use for that vehicle as well. So if i decide to, the 0W40 can go into the Passat in the future.

EA888 is designed around VW504.00/507.00 and VW502.00 oils in mind. 0W20 is CAFE driven.

thumbsup , although i read on other forums that the "new oil-pump" may have something to do with it.

I did a couple early changes. The first with 508 and now this one with 502.

Hmmm, I'm picking up a new Jetta this week that is spec'd for 508.00 I think my first two maintenance visits are covered by VW though.

Nothing wrong with the 508 oils, they appear to be pretty stout 0W20. But the choice is yours

wemay, I think you will be fine running 0W-40. I do agree with edyvw in that I would prefer Castrol to Mobil, but that's nit. Importantly, you live in Florida. 0W-40 will be thinner in a Florida winter than a 0W-20 will be in a frigid -20 degree Minnesota winter!
