Hi .

I take it your engine is the DT 2.7L Diesel.

You can use the following oils from Castrol .
Edge 5W40 or magnatecc 10W40 and the oil you need is 7.2L with filter .

a. Diesel engine oil viscosity recommendations: below -30°C to -10°C, 5W-20; below -30°C to 15°C, 5W-30; -20°C to 20°C, 10W-30; -20°C to 30°C, 10W-40; -20°C to above 40°C, 10W-50, 15W-40, 15W-50; -10°C to above 40°C, 20W-40, 20W-50; -20°C to 0°C: 10W; -10°C to 20°C, 20W, 20W-20; 0°C to 30°C, 30; 20°C to above 40°C, 40, 50. (Turbo charged engines; 5W-30 not suitable, 5W-30 should only be used below 0°C)
b. Do not use CG-4
c. Alternative recommendations: <-30°C to 10°C, 75W; <-30°C to 30°C, 80W; <-30°C to 40°C, 75W-90; <-30°C to 40°C, 80W-90; -10°C to 30°C, 85W; 0°C to 40°C, 90; 10°C to >40°C, 140
