I won't even use it in my lawnmower. 5w40 minimum or a low SAP oil of higher weight 10w40 or 15w40. I don't care about the MB specs but do care that I use an oil that won't clog my DPF prematurely requiring its replacement.
You want an oil:
Low ash content
[*]Helps reduce particulate buildup in diesel particulate filters.
Low sulphur and phosphorous content
[*]Helps reduce poisoning of catalytic converters
Sorry you must have missed my post further up. I am removing my DPF right away. I agree that i would never use it with the DPF, i currently use 5w40. Once the DPF is out i will switch to the mobil 0w40. That is what best suites my climate here, from -30 celsius to +30 celsius, anyone with a diesel and dpf delete uses that oil around here.
