So, do we know what 507 oil does for cam lobe wear? Higher ZDDP levels is a typical solution, but maybe this adversely impacts the cats.
My T3 burns a little over 1 quart every 10,000 miles. It's a little irritating but suppose it's manageable.So do I - especially as I haven't had to add any oil between services to any of my cars for nigh-on 2 million miles now!
I regularly thrash the living daylights out of them yet they [all gassers bar one as in 3 SAABs, 3 Range Rovers, 3 BMWs, 1 Suzuki and 2 VWs] just don't burn oil!!
:laugh:You can get a 55 gallon drum of Quaker State Ultimate Durability European L 5W30 delivered for $1580.
Yes. Only a few select parts stores carry it; Pep Boys and Napa that I know of. Isn't really stocked anywhere else.Is it really hard to find 507.00 in the US?
It's available at sensible prices (for the UK!) at Asda, Walmart's subsidiary here in the UK and even cheaper on UK-ebay
Since you seem to argue somewhat pointlessly with many of the answers you get, it does seem you'd be better served in this case by asking the people who make the car then, perhaps, you can make a useful contribution by telling the rest of us what VW says.
