Oil for top-up in 2.4 JTD

I've had my 1562.4 JTD for a couple of weeks now and checked the oil level. It's a little low (just above min mark), so I'd like to top it up.
The problem is, I have no idea which oil was put in at the last service. I've heard before never to mix grades of oil, but I guess any oil is better than none.
Would it be ok to buy any diesel 10/40 oil from the local petrol station for top-ups or do I risk doing damage?

You could contact whoever did the last service to find out. But mixed oil is better than no oil. Fill it up!
