    If your engine is an OM651 it almost certainly has a DPF. Your vehicle needs a low SAPs[ ash] oil. Any oil that meets either MB 229.31 [short change interval]or MB 229.51[ extended interval] should be OK Specifications should be printed on the oil container labels. Beware counterfeit oil sold in original manufacturer containers. Best to buy from a reputable source. There are many bona fide online suppliers such as OPIE oils.

    Too many fakes on ebay get it from a local supplier. It is the engine after all.
