Specifically its Penrite HPR5 that is oficially 229.5 approved. Their Diesel specific 5W40 isn't approved so make sure you get the HPR5.

Mmm now I think I need some assistance, just when I thought I knew enough to help my new mechanic understand the right / correct oil to use on my OM646 which if I read right is:

228.51 and 229.31 and 229.51 which cross referenced to Penrite recommends "Enviro +5w-40 FullSynth".

Is 229.5 the same at 229.51 and 229.31.. ? thanks

If wrong oil was used, consider a couple of short-term (20-miles) oil/filter changes with correct oil.
