The proper oil weight should be printed on the oil refill cap located under the hood. It's likely a 20 weight oil in the New Beetle.

What oil to use in 2006 vw beetle

On a 1.8T you should ALWAYS be running synthetic, otherwise you are going to have sludge issues...especially if you do a lot of city driving. Mobil 1 0w-40 is a great oil, readily available and reasonably priced.

Hope this helps...

How often should the oil be changed in a 2004 VW beetle? After how many miles? Is there any reason to change it after a certain number of months instead of a certain number of miles? Is the number the...

Oil should be changed every 5000 miles for moderate driving. Some people have adopted the 3500 mile interval for changing oil. The length of time is not relevant, change it between 3500 and 5000 miles. The number is the same for newer cars as well
