Most folks know I love old MB diesels. Have owned a few W123s in the past and own two of the nicest examples out there currently. Id consider a w124, w126, w107, and maybe a few newer models. But IMO their engineering went downhill at some point a

It's too easy to buy the right stuff like M1 0W-40 or Castrol 0W-40 at the local store. If Amsoil were LL-01 and sitting on the store shelf, I might be tempted. But why go out of your way for something that does not meet spec and is more costly.
