Just to add to this post, I have been using 2 stroke oil in my 850 TDI for months now. Quieter engine, and on initial usage an increase of about 3 mpg which has stayed there.

Not noticed anything with smoke, there's enough of that as it is with the TDI.

I have been told NOT to use semi-synth or synth for this purpose and to stick to mineral only oils.

'98 V40 2.0T B4204T - died...
'96 855 2.5 TDI D5252T - 255,000 miles

With no DPF its good to use 2 stroke oil ,try to use an oil with the lowest residual deposist when burned
You also could use a few (cheaper) liters vegoil for lubrication instead of 2 stroke oil
