personally I would drain it immediately, that is a high ash oil only diesel rated for CF

you need a low ash oil to protect the dpf from plugging

Mercedes has specs for different oils: examples are 228.3, 229.3, 229.5, 229.51 etc. The link 2004tdigls sent you for the WavePower shows it meets 229.1. Most euro oil bottle labels will show what Mercedes spec the oil meets.

Try this: https://bevo.mercedes-benz.com/d/d/en/Spec_223_2.pdf

This may not be the right table, but something like this is what you need to consult. Hopefully you can find your engine in all this. You may need to find a version of this table dated 7-8 years ago. There is no guarantee an engine similar to yours produced today takes the same oil as a 2009 version.

Anything MB229.51 or 229.52.
By the way, which Georgia? Georgia country or Georgia state? Give us more accurate location and maybe we can help with specific oils.

I imagine any 5W-30 oil that meets MB 229.5 and VW 504.00/507.00 would be just right.

Everyone makes this type of oil choice so difficult when in reality it is very simple. Use any oil that carries the approval required by your owner's manual, make sure it has actual approval and is not just "recommended for" that approval. Ignore grade since all oils that meet the required approval will have a similar HTHS, and there in Georgia the slight differences in winter ratings will have no meaning.

Missed it by .01
Anyway many VW 504.00/507.00 oils meet that spec.

i will need to fill 10w40 again because engine was used to that oil from the beginning when it was new, the first fill was shell rimula https://www.shell.com/motorist/oils...-duty-engine-oil/shell-rimula-r6-lm.html

now it has 170k miles, can you recommend any good oil of this grade?

Why would you have to use the same grade? The requirement is the approval, not the grade. I would use the proper approval and forget about what is in there now. Engines do not get “used to” anything.

Pick the least expensive oil you can buy that has the actual approval required for your engine. That’s the best one. If that Rimula is easily available for you and inexpensive then use that. If it’s not then find something else.

Please listen to the advice being given to you here rather than making up new concerns or imaginary ones.

Angry Orc said he's from the country of Georgia, even though his location link takes you to the US state.
