    I dont believe i have a DPF
    Would there be any issues for running an oil which is for DPF in a none DPF vehicle???

    cheers

    The first batch of 3.0 D4s were fitted with a DPF so either the VIN has to be referred to or as already stated, have a look.

    LR dealers usually use the DPF spec oil in all TD/SDV6 engines probably to avoid having to keep 2 oils and to avoid the possibility of making the mistake of using non-DPF oil when a DPF is fitted. However oil compatible with DPFs doesn't look after the engine quite as well as the correct non-DPF version of the oil.

    Edge Prof A5 5w30 appears to have slightly different benefits to Magnatec Prof A5 5w30 so perhaps choose the one that you think will better look after your engine considering your driving.

    Hi Graeme. Can you point me to the evidence for this? I understand there are some wives tales about this but absolutely zero evidence Iíve been able to dig up to support this assertion. Just because an oil uses an additive pack or constitution that produces less ash to help the DPF, doesnít have to mean it doesnít protect the engine as well. In fact, the add packs etc for low ash oil cost more and thus more complex I believe so one might argue that the oils are of better quality with less ď****Ē so to speak? I donít know, but Iíd love to base this on fact.

    Are any guys in Perth using a 5w40 was recommended by an indie but after doing a lot of reading i'm starting to question if i did the right thing.
    As long as the 5-40 uses the fords specs it should be good to go, yes?

    Yes people are. Also the invoices I have from Barbagallo report using a 5W-40 Castrol Professional oil (before my ownership). I am not sure that the invoice reflects what they actually use however. I know from my experience of dealer management systems itís all pre-canned and little on the invoice relates to the reality of the activities.

    That doesnít work for mine, and I suspect others, MY14, SALLAAAN5EA****** ĎNí isnít even listed as an engine option.

    Only way to be 100% is to actually have a look at the exhaust as it runs under the front passenger footwell.

    The specification difference was discussed some years ago. Whilst improvements in oils since that time may have closed the gap, neither LR nor Ford originally specified or currently specify the DPF compatible oil when no DPF is fitted.
