I'm not familiar with different variations of the V6CDI but I believe our sulphur content is nominally 5ppm, 15ppm likely then acceptable for a car with particulate filter. However, the CDI engine is available without the particulate filter too, without option code 474 (not an accessory that a customer normally can choose but more like market dependent). I believe 474 would set the highest requirements for sulphur but the 500ppm level would not be acceptable for the V6CDI even without the particulate filter. 50 ppm might be.
I believe there was a thread with accurate info on the acceptable sulphur for the I6CDI and other models, at about the time the Bluetec (our E320CDI with particulate filter) entered the US market.
