What Engine Oil For Audi Q5?

The well-known brand oil Castrol Edge 5W-30 LL is suitable for almost every engine on the Q5. It meets the required specification and has an Audi/VW approval.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.
