Based on the specs for their 5W-30 diesel recommendation, I'd stick with Mobil 1 or something better. The ash content is higher on the Schaeffer than the LL04 spec (and higher than Mobil 1), and the HTHS is lower than the LL04 spec. Both are not good, given that there are better alternatives out there.
