5w30 PD oil?
« on: October 09, 2014, 12:26:50 PM »
May have been asked before but the search function is not working. I have a Galaxy Pd115 diesel 112k. Can I use a 5w30 which is Vw505.01 approved. Thanks in advance.

If it meets spec 505.01 then it should be fine, though I thought the usual oil viscosity for the PD was 5/40- see here.
