Shell Rotella T6 5W-40 | Oil:5532km | Vehicle:153797km [2010 C63 AMG]

Picked up an SOS kit form Toromont to give em a try. About 25k km back I would have added 2 bottles of Ceratec, not sure if any of it was still clinging on.

No dice. They already discarded the sample. Email trail that led to a phone convo didn't really go anywhere since I can't prove the additive numbers without official documentation from the manu. Hopefully the wear/contamination numbers are accurate. I don't think I will use them again.
