    Anyone out there who has the good oil on correct oil to use in 505 XD2 diesel engines?
    I can't get 10-40 up where I live so mostly use 20-50 cf.I used this in my last diesel for a couple of years with no apparent ill affect.
    comments welcome if anyone has the time or interest.
    Cheers
    David.

    Default 505 diesel correct oil.

    When I bought a 504 diesel the owner had been using a truck type oil, Delo or something like that. I changed to Valvoline XLD and found the oil consumption dropped and the foam air filter didn't oil up as much via the engine breather.
    Read the back label on the container, most car grade, SF or SJ oils are suitable for light diesels.
    They need more regular, 5k,changes than petrol engines.

    I've used Shell Rimula-X 15w/40 for 24 years/275,000kms in my 504 XD2. It still uses one litre per 5000kms as it has since new.
