Help DPF and Oil???

Apart from Selenia oil, what oils are useable with a DPF??? Looking to service the 159 1.9JTDm and have a Halfrauds discount card which makes things very cheap. What do people recommend???

I have had proplems getting Selenia WR over here so I use Castrol Edge....Still pricey but I have had no problems with it, performance remains excellent.

As David C said, a 5w-40 synthetic meeting ACEA C3. As long as it meets that, brand is largely irrelevant as long as its a reputable one.
