Here is an overview of the Volkswagen oil change services:
The basic recommendation for most vehicles, it is also called Standard or Regular oil because it is the foundation for all oil types. It is made from raw petroleum.
This oil has no crude petroleum in production and is totally produced without any real oil. Although it contains no actual petroleum, it outperforms the oil alternatives that do. Sometimes our loyal customers with older vehicles make a switch to full-synthetic because it helps protect engines with significant miles to extend engine life.
An easy way to think of semi-synthetic oil is a blend or mixture of conventional oil and synthetic additives. The synthetic additives improve the oil performance inside the engine regarding its resistance to thermal breakdown. It outperforms conventional but does not last quite as long as full-synthetic.
