    Shell helix ultra oil

    I have managed to pick up some Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 oil (fully synthetic) dead cheap and i wondered if i can lob it into my 2.5 TDI V6,i know there is a diesel version of this oil but wondered what the difference is between the two,would it do any damage?

    I think there's a big diff with petrol / diesel engine oils buddy, I'd hold off on that one...

    Diesel versions of oils have a completely different detergent package, there's no way I'd use oil designed for use in a petrol engine in a diesel...
