2021 Volkswagen Atlas Outside

What is the recommended oil for the VW Atlas? This is a question we get asked a lot because our Bayside customers take their automobile maintenance seriously. Knowing which Volkswagen Atlas oil type to use is an important part of that maintenance. The recommended oil to use in your Volkswagen Atlas oil change is 0W-30 full synthetic for later models. But be sure to check your owner’s manual or with ourservice department for the specific oil for your car and circumstances. Here are some more details:

  • VW Atlas Oil Type – Full synthetic
  • Recommended Weight – 0W-30
  • Recommended Brand – Castrol
  • Amount – 6.02 quarts with filter



What is the Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

Why is full synthetic the recommended oil for the Volkswagen Atlas? Synthetic is the recommended Volkswagen Atlas oil type because the engine in your Atlas is precision-engineered and needs oil with high viscosity to fully optimize its performance. Here are some differences between synthetic and conventional oil:

  • Cleaning the engine – Synthetic oil is specially formulated both with enhanced engine cleaning properties and to produce less gunk and residue over time.
  • Viscosity (the ability to flow smoothly through the engine) – Since synthetic oil runs cleaner, it runs more smoothly.
  • Protecting turbo components – Synthetic oil is formulated to do this.
  • Oxidation – Synthetic oil is made to oxidize more slowly than regular oil.
  • Cost – Synthetic oil does cost more than synthetic.

Changing your oil regularly is vital to keeping your car running on our Huntington roads. In fact, failure to change your oil could cause catastrophic damage to your engine. Here’s what happens if you don’t change your oil:
