There are some oils that were approved by Mercedes-Benz itself. Therefore it will be the best and wisest thing – to use that ones. For example for majority of its commercial trucks which are equipped with diesel engines, Mercedes suggests SHPD (Super High Performance Diesel) oil, which is multi-viscosity, and also drain interval up to the 30,000 km. Though you should be careful when using the 228.x oils in some gas cars – as additives might also damage the catalytic converters. Therefore the ACEA E2-96 is fully based on these spec.

Or it is also possible to use Euro 2, the minimum specs for the CDIs, a multi-viscosity SHPD oil, and therefore extended drain intervals to the rate of 45,000 km. The 228.x oils are specially designed to handle the increased soot loads
