2001 vw passat 1.8t turbocharged with 170,000 miles

What's the best oil grade I should use?
I've read that the best one is 15W30 synthetic motor oil. But, I can get 15W50 close by only.

You might get some better responses on a VW Forum

A quick google search revealed most people run 5w-40 or 0w-40 synthetic. Your neighborhood 7-11 isn't likely to carry them but any parts house should.

I run Castrol 0w-40. Make sure it’s VAG 502.0 compliant for what’s you choose.
