Mobil 1 0w40 has an ACEA A3/B4 rating so that makes it a very good light duty diesel engine oil. The fact it can meet CF these days is mostly irrelevant.

After 300K miles with M1 I tried ACD and it got the engine cleaner the first OCI and kept cleaning until the car was parked, just my personal experience so yes an HDEO will clean your gas engine.

Diesel formulations have about 50% more detergent, and one or two changes with it won't hurt the CAT.

But the AutoRx has solvents that will add cleaning power do dissolve what detergent alone can't.

What about oils that are designed for both diesel and petrol engines, A3, B3, B4?

The only oils i have seen that you could consider diesel only are HDEO.

Usually, the E type oils can be used in a gasser, too. The big names here have ACEA E sequences, along with SM or SN for our gassers. Of course, they're heavier than what the North American manufacturers tend to call for, and they're all panicky about phosphorous. wink

Your right buddy. specially if you are using CAT DEO ULS 0W-40 this is dual rated for gas and diesel engine.
I have been using Cat oil stuff in my car since i joined them six years ago and up to now i don't have any problem.

If you don't mind 10w-30 or 15w-40 there are some very good HDEO's available.

I have used Rotella in my Triumph for years, My Toyota 22R also gets it in the summer.

I dont know about diesel oil but we used to do that in the early 80 s but it was automatic transmission oil.not needed anymore (unless you have an old 70s 80s car .even then i would dismantle and clean manually.but yes we did that and it worked relativly good as a temporary measure
