    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?

    lol it's probably too thick and may damage the dpf?

    It needs to be a low ash oil 507.1 spec or better for use with the DPF. Nothing to do with the thickness.
