We don't have a choice of grades when it comes to diesel (unless you count bio diesel). DPF cleaner is available in 5l drums from your local truck/ tractor supply, works out to less than $5 per fill and easily pays for itself in MPG by not ever going into regens, but yes, if you're not doing regens you don't need DPF cleaner

Slightly confused by what I've highlighted? The point I'm making is, my car does regen, perfectly properly as it is supposed to and still does so even using Shell Nitro diesel. I don't need to use a dedicated DPF cleaner. I've just shoved 12 gallons of Nitro diesel into my Saab this afternoon. I just don't understand those people who think it's all placebic and is a con. I can absolutely state the stuff works. I've used normal everyday supermarket diesel and in my very humble opinion, it's crap, causes my EGR to soot up in no time and stuffs the MAP sensor in short order too. The problem with folk when it comes to more expensive fuel is, they can only ever see past what goes out of their wallet at fill up. They can't see past the long term benefits, such as increased mpg, a cleaner more efficient engine etc. If you use something like Shell Nitro all the time such as I do, you find you can't justify going back to the run of the mill diesel being dished out of a grocery store pump.
