    Hi, just wondering if the engine oil used in the ibiza 1.6 tdi's is called platinum?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks Techie.

    I was talking to a guy in a car garage today, and he said they have gone from the pd oils to this platinum stuff on the newer models??????

    If you can find out though, it would be great.

    Cheers

    Platinum is a great oil but its 505.01 5w40

    You should use the longlife oil in the gold can which is 507.00 5w30

    I will double check
