    Shell Helix HX7 Diesel Oil

    I just picked up a can of Shell Helix oil, 10w/40, only to read on the back that it's not suitable for engines with particulate filter, TBH I only wanted it for the Lego figures, so why isn't it suitable? Has anyone used it in their 2.0TDi?

    It needs to be a low ash oil 507.1 spec or better for use with the DPF. Nothing to do with the thickness.
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....
