Specifically designed for VAG Group recent cars (Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Seat) fitted with EURO IV engines that require lubricants with low Sulphur, low Phosphorus and low Sulphated Ashes rates. Backward compatibility over previous VW oil standards, meets the following standards in addition to 504.00 and 507.00 - 502 00, 505 00, 505 01, 503 00, 503 01, 506 00, 506 01
Volkswagen 504 00 / 507 00
* Engines compliant with EURO IV emission regulation are fitted with sensitive systems for exhaust gas after treatment:
- Sulphur and Phosphorus inhibit catalytic convertors operation and can damage catalytic components : inefficient exhaust gas treatment.
- Sulphated Ashes clog diesel particulate filters : shorter regenerating cycle, higher fuel consumption and engine power loss.
Volkswagen developed VW 504 00 507 00 standard for lubricants with low Sulphur, Phosphorus and Sulphated Ashes content, compatible with after treatment systems. Those oils allow reaching extended drain intervals managed by computer on board.
