Audi Gasoline & Oil

A few words about oil use

Every gasoline or diesel engine uses a certain amount of oil during its normal operation. Oil use varies from engine to engine and may even change during the life of the engine.

Many factors contribute to the rate of oil used:

  • Use may be higher within the first 3,000 miles, a common occurrence during an engine's break-in period.
  • The rate of oil use depends on a number of factors, including oil quality, oil viscosity, engine rpm, outside temperature, road conditions, oil dilution caused by condensed water or fuel residue, and oxidation of the oil.
  • Driving habits and towing can affect the rate of use.
  • Oil use may increase with engine wear over time, until replacement of worn engine parts may become necessary.

Audi recommends checking the engine oil level at every fill-up, and always before a long trip. See our service advisors at Audi North Atlanta or reference your Audi Owner's Guide for the proper procedure to check the oil level.

TOP TIER gasoline

As an Audi owner, you appreciate the exceptional performance of one of the world's finest automobiles. One way to help maintain that performance is to use only an Audi approved gasoline. By fueling with gasoline from a TOP TIER retailer, you help to ensure that your Audi will deliver all the performance it was designed to provide.

Lower quality fuels can build up deposits in your engine, which may degrade engine performance and vehicle emissions.

Using fuels that meet TOP TIER standards helps you avoid lower quality gasoline. These U.S. retailers provide fuels that meet the high standards required of TOP TIER gasolines:

What if I can't find TOP TIER gasoline?

When TOP TIER gasoline is not available, we recommend the use of Audi fuel additive, purchased at an authorized Audi Dealer such as Audi North Atlanta in Alpharetta, GA.

If most of your driving is done over short distances, using Audi fuel additive every 3,000 miles will help keep your engine clean and performing at its best.

Finally, should you notice a change in drivability after refueling, even with TOP TIER gasoline, it could be an isolated fuel-quality problem. A quick and easy fix may be the use of Audi fuel additive, available at your dealer.

For more information on fuel quality and octane requirements, please consult the Audi Owner's Guide located in the glove box of your vehicle.

Audi approved engine oil for 2005 and newer model year Audi vehicles

The engine in your Audi is a sophisticated powerplant, and it requires engine oil that meets exacting specifications. Choosing the correct oil, along with oil and filter changes at factory-specified intervals, will help ensure proper lubrication for your vehicle's engine.

Many synthetic oils available today provide better engine lubrication than traditional petroleum-based oils. In any case, the oil you use must conform to one of the following Audi oil quality standards:

  • Audi oil standard VW 502 00 (for gasoline engines)
  • Audi oil standard VW 507 00 (for diesel engines)

Oils that meet these standards help keep your vehicle's engine running smoothly and help prevent the formation of harmful deposits that over time can lead to expensive repairs.

At the time of publication, engine oils available in the U.S. that are in compliance with Audi standards are all synthetic engine oils.

However, every synthetic oil may not meet Audi standards. To be sure that you are using an approved oil, check the container label, which may carry the specification, or see Audi North Atlanta, who will have approved oil in stock and available for purchase.

Viscosity

Engine oil is manufactured in different viscosities to meet the requirements of various engines. The correct viscosity grade for your engine also depends on climatic or seasonal conditions where you drive. You can use oil with a viscosity of SAE 5W40 across all temperature ranges for normal driving conditions. However, if that grade is not available, you can use SAE 5W-30 or SAE 0W-40, as long as it meets one of the Audi oil quality standards specified to the left. Because Audi approved engine oil may not be available everywhere, we recommend that you always carry with you an extra quart (liter).

For more information about engine oil that has been approved for your vehicle, please contact either your authorized Audi Dealer (such as Audi North Atlanta) or Audi Customer Relations at 1 (800) 822-2834, or visit audiusa.com. The website can provide you with a current list of oils (manufacturers, brand names, etc.) that conform to Audi oil standards.
