At the moment I’m not concerned about the saps content and the possible DPF blocking but then I wouldn’t want deposit build up in the engine that’s a possibility with a higher saps oil.

If the 504/507 will stand up better than the C2 JLR oil in regards to fuel dilution and staying in grade then I guess there’s no need to go up to a 40 weight oil?

If you aren't concerned about DPF issues then you haven't owned a JLR diesel for long.

I was a LR master technician before leaving to work for Audi. The DPF issues they have can be easily solved by having an awareness of what your car is doing. I’m not concerned about ash mass build up as your engine needs to be burning oil for this to happen.

Oil changed today using some of this from my stock pile (oil from previous A4 2.0 TDI owned for 3 years 80,000 miles)

That'll work alright. On diesel Ingeniums there are reports of timing chain breakdowns, could be the result of extended OCI by JLR. Be on the watch. Mine is a gas/petrol, no bad reports on both sides Jaguar & LL forums. Seems solid and dependable engine.
