Hello to all Porsche Cayenne Diesel Owners. I am new to my 2014 and was surprised to see Mobile 1 synthetic as the oil requirement. I thought most diesels required oil formulated for diesels only. Are there more than one type of Mobile 1 synthetic oil? I would like start changing my own oil and want to make sure I am getting the correct oil.

Pay careful attention to the oil rating... yes, there are several oils labeled "Mobil 1"... I believe you need a low-ash oil...

It needs to conform to the Porsche C30 rating. I'd recommend Liquimoly TopTec 4200 in 5W30 but whatever you use make sure it conforms to the C30 rating.
