I assume nothing. Most 228.31 oils were also CJ-4, 229.51 oils are not. In the 2007 models MB 228.31 oil was listed as OK for that engine, but for 2008 and up the 228.31 was NOT approved. I stand by Mercedes since they are the engine maker and the one I have to deal with for warranty purpose.

Even Mobil don't want to take a chance, I quote from their FAQ:

"Question: Can Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck be Used in Place of Mobil 1 ESP Formula M 5W-40? The owner's manual calls for Mobil 1 ESP Formula M 5W-40 oil, which is hard to find locally. I can readily find Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40, which says on the label that it is "recommended for virtually all diesel-powered equipment from U.S., European and Japanese equipment builders. . ." But, nowhere is Daimler Chrysler mentioned on the label. I compared the properties specs for both. There are some differences. Is the Turbo Diesel Truck oil of equal or better quality than the ESP Formula? If I use the Turbo Diesel and have a problem with the engine later, would Mercedes have a basis to claim that I used an inferior grade oil to that demanded in their MB 229.51 spec? Thanks.-- Marvin Vanhise, Lawrenceville, NJ

Answer: You should use the MB 229.51 recommended product."

And this is your evidence that CJ-4 will harm the dpf? Gimme a break.

No break for you since you seems to not understand technical specifications and got nothing to show for except for a couple of anecdotal UOAs. I got Mobil and Mercedes recommendations and warranty on my side. Feel free to shade tree mechanic your ride and take it up with any CJ oil makers you like when your DPF is plugged up. Like the man said "Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it"

And you still have offered no evidence that CJ-4 will harm the dpf. It's all about manufacterers covering ther behinds on emission warranties. Same old story about non-GF4 SM oils damaging catalysts in gas burners. It has not happened . I don't shade-tree anything. Ran my own shop for years and been in the business for 25. What's you background other than sucking up whatever MB feeds you?

Yeah, they are covering their behinds on emissions warranties because they know lubricants' additive formulations affect the emissions hardware. There is plenty of evidence published online about this. Here's one, starting on page 21: http://www.engine-expo.com/05engine_conf/pres/day1/burnett.pdf

That article points out that E6 (228.51) oils are clearly superior in terms of emission equipment lifetime to E9(CJ4) oils.

[/quote]The only part that scares me-if BITOG "experts" think CJ-4 is acceptable-IMHO 99% of oil change places & mechanics won't know any better either. Using the recommended oil, which does cost a little more, lets you use the OLM to get maximum life out of the oil. Last I checked, the M1 ESP isn't outrageously expensive-why the obstinate contrariness on this spec? Pretty sure Daimler has better info on this one, don't think they're raking in big $$$ from the 229.51 oil producers?

Also guessing you're probably not running the Mann fleece oil filters either? The part I'd be keeping a VERY close eye on is the condition of the ATF and transmission-heard a rebuild on a Sprinter trans set back an ex-employer of mine EIGHT GRAND-bet a plugged DPF is chump change compared to that!

Is the DPF cheaper to replace than an engine?
Only time will tell if the DPF issue is over exaggerated.
Keep an eye on the salvage yards. Maybe you can get a spare DPF off a wrecked van and keep it in the attic.

Stick with this oil. And, hunt the aftermarket for a DPF delete.

Your automaker lied!
Is this a spelling/grammar forum or BITOG?

A used DPF is still around $400-800 (labor not included) and you would know what is its condition. New replacement DPF on a Sprinter van is around $3,000 at the dealer. So what exactly are you going to gain going with a non-spec oil?

+1 for the DPF delete if possible, will not pass inspection in many locales.

With all the electronics one needs a "patch" or convertor box to allow the truck to run properly with DPF and urea convertor gone.
There are DPF delete kits for pre 2011 Big 3 diesel pickups, but none so far AFAIK for 2011 Big 3 diesels, let alone Mercedes/BMW/VW imports.
If someone knows of a delete kit for a 2009 BMW X5 35d, let me know.
