I don't know if it was diesel rated. ****. It was right next to the rotella bottles but it was a dollar cheaper. Castrol I believe was the brand. You guys got me worried...

Do we want to go into the difference between CI-4, CI-4 Plus, and CJ-4 Oils..

Quickly:
CJ-4
Introduced in 2006 for high-speed four-stroke engines. Designed to meet 2007 on-highway exhaust emission standards. CJ-4 oils are compounded for use in all applications with diesel fuels ranging in sulphur content up to 500ppm (0.05% by weight). However, use of these oils with greater than 15ppm sulfur fuel may impact exhaust aftertreatment system durability and/or oil drain intervals. CJ-4 oils are effective at sustaining emission control system durability where particulate filters and other advanced aftertreatment systems are used. CJ-4 oils exceed the performance criteria of CF-4, CG-4, CH-4 and CI-4.

CI-4
Introduced in 2002 for high-speed four-stroke engines. Designed to meet 2004 exhaust emission standards implemented in 2002. CI-4 oils are formulated to sustain engine durability where exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) is used and are intented for use with diesel fuels ranging in sulphur content up to 0.5% weight. Can be used in place of CD, CE, CF-4, CG-4 and CH-4
Used in conjunction with the CI-4 category, the "CI-4 PLUS" designation identifies oils formulated to provide a higher level of protection against soot-related viscosity increase and viscosity loss due to shear in diesel engines.

hmmmm.... I'm reaching here but I'd venture CCMG C5... But now I'd recommend CI-4 Plus. Depending on your climate 15W-40 or 15W-50....LOL...

i just recommended 15-40 because the manual in my 300d shows a chart that explains that 15-40 is good for all temperature ranges (besides like below 20 degrees.)

Thats cool. According to the Mercedes Shop Manual. under the 616 617 oil change section: Note 1: For continuous temperatures above +30 deg C (84 deg F) SAE 40 can be used.

I think its more important to change it every 5,000 miles. Then split hairs over brand/type oil... LOL
