505.01 Is it true

Is it true all the bad stuff the owners manual says about not running 505.01 in the PD engine. Im stuck running Castrol TXT cause thats all i can get here in HI. Plus the owners manual says that i can go 10k between oil changes after the initial 10k on the odo. Im not sure i wanna do this since the oil is quite nasty already just a few miles after an oil change. Ive only got 10100 on the odo now. Maybe its time to block off the EGR. Its my wifes car and she is real gentle on the throttle. The car only sees about 20 to 30 highway miles a week the rest is short trips to and fro, i mean like 1-2 miles. The EGR is bound to be jacked up by now.

This is a 1.9l VW engine. VW requires a 5w40 that meets 505.01 specs.
