New ML owner, need advice on diesel type

Hi everybody,

I'm in the UK and recentely purchased a ML 270 CDI low milage 29K and since this is a modern vehicle with a modern diesel engine I was wondering what type of diesel can/should I use?

BP, shell and the likes now have 2 types of diesel, the regular and the new ultimate/v-power, does any one know if this new fuel is suitable for the CDI engine without causing long term problems or deposits inside the engine?

Similarly, can the diesel engine run on GPL (gas) is I get it converted?

Thanks alot.

The Shell is very highly regarded here. I am not sure what the exact blends are in the UK.

I really do not think you can go wrong with the BP or Shell. I have two farm tractors
and have used the new low sulfur diesel in both with no problems. They are both more
than 20 years old.
