Default Another oil debacle input is welcome

So I had the crankcase breather issue which caused 3 quarts or so of my freshly changed oil to pump out on the ground. I needed to order more oil so I seen this newer formula of the same brand I was using and decided to give it a try. It shows the MB 229.5 but doesnít state if it was good for Diesel. Iím looking for opinions on weather I should drain this or if i can run it for a bit before changing it to the proper rating.
