I am using the plug for radar detector, laptop (via inverter) and some other stuff as well. The poorly design plugs with spring not holding the unit in the hole are too common. What works for me the best (but still not bulletproof) is the splitter with wire extension. I insert light weight plug into the car outlet and on few inches of wire there hangs 4-holes splitter, that does not put weight on the car outlet.
Than some plugs come with securing ring that helps, but will still bounce off on California roads.
What oil you but into your Bluetec? I just spend over an hour trying to get approved oil for my 320cdi. Posted question in W211 section, but not much traffic there.
