    I've recently got a 2008 S320 CDI. Bought 10 litres of 5w30 oil synthetic oil from my local Merc main dealer as it was on offer at £19.99 per 5 litres. It doesn't specifically state that it's low SAPS. It has the right Merc spec obviously as it's from Merc but was just wondering whether it would be ok to use with the DPF?

    What Mercedes Spec does it say it meets?

    £20 for 5 litres is a very good price. Even a special deal on Amazon was £30
