Which Diesel fuel


I have just bought a 2003/53 E220 CDI and am wondering which diesel I should fill up with. Is standard ok or will a premium diesel help with engine noise and fuel consumption?

Thanks in anticipation

OT topic question. Sounds like you have premium diesel in UK? Never heard about it. In US we have only summer and winter blends.
Now they switched to ultra-low sulfur and lot fear that old diesels might suffer.

I've use Aral premium here in Germany in my BMW 530d in the past, I've noticed that the engine runs smoother and quieter (with better MPG's) Given the higher price, think it's worth it once and a while. I know what prices are like up there in the UK (vice here in Germany) so if you can afford a few more pounds each fill up, I dont see why you wouldnt use the premium.
