Re: Advice on oil type sought

Definitely use a C rated oil. You should never use S oil in a diesel except in an emergency and it should be changed ASAP - the additive packages are very different.

Years ago most oils had dual ratings (SF/CD) and could be used in either but the formulations have changed dramatically since then and I know of no oil with dual ratings anymore.
