#4577229 - 11/17/17 03:57 PM BMW 335d w/o DPF - M1 TDT or RT6?

The DPF/SCR fell off my BMW 335d...

Looking to use either Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck or Shell Rotella T6 (both easily accessible in Canada), as those seem to be the most commonly used/recommended 5w-40 oils for the 35ds, as I don't need a low-ash LL-04 compliance anymore.

What would be be the consensus recommendation in this scenario? For DPF-deleted BMWs, is LL-01 something that I should still be looking to conform to?


I read elsewhere that Shell is only Group III, but Mobil has been using Group IV production. Is this true, and does it make a difference?

There's no reason to really avoid an LL-01 oil. Look at the price of TDT versus M1 0w-40 or Castrol 0w-40. European oils in A3/B4 can be found in decent sized containers at decent prices, at least on sale.

With DPF = BMW LL-04 and ACEA C3
With Out DPF = BMW LL-01 and ACEA A3/B4

Castrol Edge 0W40 is what I would use.

Still nothing wrong with M1 TDT or Rotella T6 as an oil, they are good stuff, but why not use BMW LL-01 if you can.

I thought the new CK-4 T6 was primarily composed of GTL derived group III basestocks. I would use amsoil AME 15w40 in your situation.

You could use an LL01 oil, or:

Mobil Delvac 1
Chevron Delo
Mobil TDT
Rotella T6

My order of preference.

No, they have the same shortcomings as other G III basestocks. Both M1 TDT and T6 are now primarily composed of GTL DISTILLATES, HEAVY, C18-50 - BRANCHED, CYCLIC AND LINEAR. They are value engineered products with an attractive price which allows them to be sold at Walmart.

If the OP wants a primarily group IV or V oil then he will need to look at other manufacturers to find what he is looking for.

Castrol 0W40. Better then both oils you are considering.

And, on special, 45% cheaper than the TDT, unless one takes a road trip south.

Like what exactly? I'm referring to these finished oils in particular. What are their specific shortcomings?
