Hi Matt I have been topping up with 5W30 fully synthetic. The oil level is not dropping straight away. I topped up 600 ml at 700 miles (1st top up) & today (2nd) 400ml @ roughly 1000 miles. I am concerned that there is an issue with the engine (however running like a clock) but after research noting that the TFSI is a heavy user of oil. Car was purchased last month (independent dealer) who carried fully service with new oil filter. Do I need to use 5W40 (heavier oil) with new filter to reduce oil usage? Not sure if this oil is compatible with TFSI /VW engines as I do not want to blow the turbo! Please advise. Thanks.
Thanks, ***** ***** I need to change the oil filter as well?
