I want to see how my OM606 in my E300D reacts.

The quieting of the engine might be the result of retarded timing due to the combustion characteristics of the fuel as it occurs when running WVO.

This is discussed here: Quieter engine on SVO is not better : 2 Tank veggie oil conversion and General discussion

"Retarded timing (quieter engine) means you are getting lower power, worse mileage and more emissions. And it burns cooler which leads to more deposits forming."

Blending in 10% Kerosene (at least with vegetable oil) is a remedy I've often seen recommended to optimize performance.
