RAVENOL WIV III SAE 5W-30 is a fully synthetic fuel-saving engine oil, with CleanSynto®  technology, which combines the high standards for gasoline and diesel engines (pump-nozzle diesel with particulate filter).

RAVENOL WIV III SAE 5W-30 prolongs the life of the diesel particulate filter by decreased exhaust concentration of ash-forming particles. Harmful emissions into the environment are reduced. High security by high protection of the motors.

Application Notes

RAVENOL WIV III SAE 5W-30 is suitable for all Volkswagen vehicles (except R5 and V10 – TDI- Pumpe-Düse- Engines with or without DPF ( for example in Phaeton and Touareg) with or without Longlife-Service).

RAVENOL WIV III SAE 5W-30 can be used in engines with the following specifications:

VW 504 00 (Gasoline-Engines) acc. to specifications VW 501 01, VW 502 00, VW 503 00, VW 503 01, VW 505 01

VW 507 00 (Diesel-Engines) acc. to specifications VW 505 00, VW 505 01, VW 506 00, VW 506 01 (see exceptions!)

RAVENOL WIV III SAE 5W-30 is not suitable for  specification VW 506 01 for

a) Engines with LongLife Service (QG1): Diesel-Engines (R5-, V10 TDI Pumpe-Düse) with or without DPF

b) Engines without LongLife Service: R5-, V10 TDI Pumpe-Düse with or without DPF.

For this we recommend RAVENOL WIV SAE 0W-30 with specification Longlife II: VW 503 00 / 506 00 / 506 01.
