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.

Use BP or Shell, then run Diesel Kleen every 20K. Make sure to change the fuel filter every 10K. I wish we had those 270's in the US. Is that a turbo?
