What oil does a Polo GTI take?

Volkswagen do not recommend a specific viscosity grade, but 5W-30 is a commonly used grade for all modern Volkswagens. However, if oil consumption is a problem, then a 5W-40 grade may (or may not) help to reduce it.

5w30 is a motor oil that is widely used in light-duty petrol and diesel engines. The “W” stands for “winter,” the number preceding it indicates the oil’s viscosity (or thickness) at low temperatures (hence the W), and the number after it indicates viscosity at higher temperatures, when the engine is running.

Can I use 10w 40 instead of 5w40?

SprayShack said: Aslong as its fully synthetic it will be fine. 5w – 40 will be better for colder conditions, 10w is thicker to start with thus doesnt get to places around the engine as quickly as 5w-40, but it all depends on temperature.

Why is 5w30 more expensive than 5w40?

5w40 oil is not thicker has it has a higher viscosity. 5w30 has lower viscosity hence it is suitable to use in hot or lower temperatures. 5w40 has higher viscosity hence it is not suitable at all temperatures. 5w30 is an expensive engine oil as compared to 5w40.
