The Right Oil

Shell Helix Oil Every 

Volkswagen is designed to work at its optimum performance using the correct grade of Shell Helix 0W-30 oil. Running low on oil or using the wrong grade can cause performance issues, reduce your fuel economy and ultimately if it gets too low, can damage your engine. 

That’s why we recommend using Shell Helix Ultra Professional 0W-30 oil when you top up your Volkswagen. To find out which grade of oil your Volkswagen needs, contact your local Volkswagen retailer here. Our Volkswagen retailers also offer a convenient top up kit for £17.99. Included in this kit is a handy pouch to sort the oil, funnel, wipes and gloves, and it also has a velcro fixing to ensure it stays secure in your boot.

1 in 3 cars need an oil top up. Does yours? 

Check your oil level regularly to maintain engine performance between servicing. If necessary top up your oil.

  • With today’s demanding driving conditions, it is more vital than ever to check your oil regularly
  • If you wait until the oil light comes on it is often too late
  • Always top up with the correct specification of oil
  • Low oil levels or topping up with the wrong oil can potentially cause damage to your engine
  • Ask your dealer for a 1 litre top up kit to ensure you always have the right oil for your car

Topping up your oil 

Ask your Volkswagen retailer for a convenient top-up kit. The kit includes a handy pouch, oil funnel, wipes, gloves and velcro fixings to keep it safe within your boot.

When topping up, it's essential to pour oil gradually and not top up with too much as it can cause engine damage. Check your dipstick to ensure you have sufficiently topped up your engine oil; this should be up to the maximum level indicator on your dipstick.
