Any opinions?
Didn't we already discuss this in detail back in 2019? Ravenol NDT 5w40. End of discussion...

Hi You very kindly offered advice on my Jeep 3.0crd with the Mercedes unit. My observation/enquiry is for the later VM Motori unit found in the latest Jeep. Totally different engine. I just found it interesting that FCA in UK decided on a different Oil spec than North America. I would like to upgrade to the later model Jeep Diesel but after reading a fair amount I am put off by the Engine issues. Also wonder how DPF friendly the Selenia A3/B4 is. It does not give an ash content.
