    Hello, I've searched through so many threads and still could not find a striaght answer. My warranty is up on my 2006 jetty tdi. Can I use Mobil 1 tdt or Rotella t6? Will it perform just as well as a 505.01 oil? And if so, which do you recommend?
    Thanks!

    Both will work but I use 505.01 because I don't feel like paying for oil analysis. My best guess is that the viscosity matters more.
