MK6 GTI remapped approved oil
« on: October 13, 2020, 08:37:54 AM »
Hi Guys,

just recently purchased a 2012 GTI MK6 remapped loving it so far.


getting conflicting information about the recommended oil to use what would be the best oil you would suggest especially for a remapped MK6 GTI I have been given different options but would like some opinions any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I use Castrol 5w-30 and have a mk6 edition 35 running on stage 1 apr & dsg remap, i top my oil up every 1000 miles and change the oil & filter every 6 months (my choice).

After speaking to APR they told me I could be expected to use a little more oil than usual with a car being mapped, VW mechanic also said similar.

They usually say 5w30 for a standard engine.........but for a stage 1 onwards to use 5w40, which also help with oil lose
