 Strength. For maximum performance. 

  • Double-strength oil film

No tearing of the oil film even under extreme strain.

  • 15% less friction.

For more strength and less wear and tear.

  • Retains its strength 140 hours longer.

Due to added titanium.

Recommended by Volkswagen.

Developed together.

For over 15 years, Castrol and Volkswagen have been working together to develop exactly the right lubricant that your car needs. Castrol is also there at the race track, cheering on the Volkswagen Motorsport Team when they're competing for the World Rally Championship title.
A team can only achieve peak performance when they're perfectly in tune with one another. The same applies for lubricants, which is why Castrol has developed special professional products for Volkswagen engines, putting them to the test under the harshest conditions out on the track.

Recommended by Volkswagen.

Engine oils are not only your engine's lifeblood, they are also crucial when it comes to optimizing engine performance and conserving fuel. Castrol Professional lubricants have been developed in collaboration with our technicians, resulting in products that meet the exact specifications of Volkswagen engines.

With the strength of Titanium FSTTM.

Volkswagen now produces engines that are smaller, more efficient and more powerful than ever before. As a result, the pressure inside the engine has almost doubled, which poses a real challenge to the lubricant: after all, the only thing that separates the metal components in the engine is the engine oil. Castrol EDGE Professional is Castrol's strongest oil. The addition of TITANIUM ESTTM has doubled the strength of the oil film - this prevents the oil film from rupturing and considerably reduces friction between the metal surfaces.

Castrol EDGE Professional therefore meets the exact specifications of modern Volkswagen engines. Castrol EDGE Professional oil with the strength of TITANIUM ESTTM: for maximum performance. Available at your Volkswagen distributor.

Certified CO2-neutral.

Selecting the right engine oil helps to reduce the CO2 emissions that occur during driving. Castrol now offsets engine oil emissions itself and, with Castrol Professional, has developed the world's first certified CO2-neutral engine oil. Every single litre is CO2-neutral certified according to international standards. To this end, Castrol reduces the amount of CO2 generated over the entire oil life cycle, from the production to its disposal. To offset the remaining emissions, Castrol is investing in carefully selected projects, such as landfill gas extraction in Turkey and clean energy production in China.

Castrol and Volkswagen Motorsport have been partners in a range of motor sport disciplines since 2005.

The Volkswagen Oil Service.

A short stop for a long engine life.

Extend your engine's life - with the Volkswagen Oil Service. Your benefits in brief: We change engine oil, filter and seals using our know-how as a manufacturer. And we use only Castrol Engine Oils and Genuine Parts, which have been developed especially for your Volkswagen.

Why change the engine oil?

Journey after journey, engine oil fights tremendous pressure, resistances and temperatures. It neutralises particulates, acids and water. Even the very best engine oil wears out over time. Residues begin to collect.

Change the filter at the same time?

The oil filter collects the combustion residues and dirt that the oil absorbs in the engine and clogs up over time. It should therefore be changed at the same time. For a long engine life.

The right oil.

Only the right engine oil provides your Volkswagen with the optimal protection.

Maximum performance. Even the best engine oil needs the correct fill level to protect your engine. Too little oil: Metal rubs on metal and may damage the engine. If there is too much oil, it may get into the combustion chamber and result in damage to the catalytic converter. Therefore, pay attention to the oil display and manually check the oil level on a regular basis.

Engine oil level too low or engine oil level faulty.

Illuminated: Engine oil level is too low. Switch off the engine and check the oil level.

Flashing: Engine oil system faulty.
Visit a specialist and have the engine oil sensor checked.

The engine's lifeblood. Several thousand revolutions a minute, pressure of more than 10 tonnes per cm2 and temperatures up to 2,000°C. An engine performs unbelievable feats: The right engine oil supports and protects it as it does so.

Reduces friction & noise.

Cylinder, piston and other engine parts move at extremely high speeds. A robust oil film reduces frictional forces and wear and tear.

Cleans the engine.

Combustion gives rise to a wide range of contaminants such as tiny soot particles. Special additives in engine oil bind them and prevent harmful deposits.

Protects against acid corrosion.

Combustion gases and unburnt fuel cause acids to form. Engine oil neutralises them, thus preventing acid corrosion.


Modern engine pistons alone reach temperatures of up to 350°C. Engine oil absorbs the heat and quickly dissipates it, thereby also cooling engine parts that coolant does not reach.

Seals off the engine.

The clearances between piston ring and cylinder surface are very fine: Engine oil ensures that they are finely sealed by not flowing into them and, instead, forming a sealing layer around them.

Measuring the oil level correctly.

Always keep one eye on the oil level. Driving with too low an oil level puts the engine at risk - too much engine oil is just as damaging. The animation will show you how to correctly measure the oil level. Speaking of which: how's it looking in your Volkswagen?

Improved engine performance with lower fuel consumption. Did you know that you save money during the prescribed maintenance procedure? Oil filters clean circulating engine oil of dust, metal abrasion debris, carbon and soot particles, allowing only clean oil to reach lubrication points and bearing positions. This prevents wear and ensures a long engine life. With the Volkswagen Genuine Oil Filters, both the oil quality and engine performance are preserved, as well as its economic viability.

How the oil filter works.

Volkswagen Genuine Oil Filters separate the good from the bad. They reliably filter all dirt particles out of the oil circulation system and guarantee the oil supply in almost all operational conditions. Now learn how Volkswagen Genuine Oil Filters ensure a high engine performance and long service life.

Volkswagen Genuine Fuel Additives.

What is it for?

Fuel additives are compounds formulated to enhance the efficiency and quality of fuels used in motor vehicles, increasing fuel's octane rating or act as corrosion inhibitors or lubricant. They allow the use of higher compression ratios for greater efficiency and power. Fuel additives can help to avoid problems such as loss of performance (engine running irregularly), increased exhaust emissions and high fuel consumptions.



The VW Fuel Additive helps clean your injectors by protecting against corrosion and pre-mature wearing, ensuring the component of your vehicle's fuel system is constantly performing at an optimum level. 

Volkswagen G13 Genuine Coolant Additive.

Maximum protection with maximum performance.

If you accelerate, things start getting very hot in your engine - actually, too hot for many materials. Volkswagen G13 Genuine Coolant Additive cools reliably even under heavy strain. At the same time, the innovative formulation protects against limescale, corrosion, acids and frost up to -40°C. 

Environmentally responsible.

Thanks to up to 20% glycerin based on renewable and recycled raw materials. An initial filling of all Volkswagen alone saves around 35,000 tonnes of CO2 a year.

Protects the engine. Is gentle on materials.

Matched to all materials of the cooling system. Protects the engine against extreme temperatures, corrosion, overacidification and limescale.
