Well, yes, it is correct. Diesel motors are considered extreme duty - long story short, if it's good enough for a diesel, then its more than good enough for your car. All your lubrication requirements are met and exceeded.

What oil is needed for a 2002 VW beetle diesel for engine


I personally have used shell rotella 5w40 and nothing else since 2001. You can find it at almost any wal-mart, and napa can get it for you. Recommended viscosity is 5w40, with a commercial rating (ch, ci, cj...) and turbo approved.

What type of engine oil is used for a diesel


go to any auto parts store, like an auto zone and tell them what you are driving. They have a data base which will guarantee that you get the exact oil that you need.

I use Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5W-40 , a fully synthetic supreme performance heavy duty diesel engine oil that helps extend engine life while providing long drain capability and potential fuel economy for modern diesel engines operating in severe applications. Mobil Delvac 1 ESP utilizes state-of-the-art technology to deliver exceptional performance in modern low emission engines, including those with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Aftertreatment systems with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF’s) and Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC’s). Therefore we believe it will be a good oil for the high mileage vehicles with the proper care for your vehicles as recommended by your manufacturers' guidelines.

How often do I need to change the synthetic oil in a 2003 jetta tdi? and what grade of oil is best?


Change it every 10k miles. You have to use 5W40 FULL SYNTHETIC oil. Not just any oil! You can buy Shell Rotella T 5w40 or Mobil1 5w40 Turbo Diesel Truck oil at Walmart. Both of these oils meet VW's TDI oil requirements.
