Did you give the dealer the bottle of Schaeffer's Moly EP to put in the engine?

Yeah 14ppm moly, you may as well have dumped fairy farts in. Save your money. Nice UOA.

The oil looks like Mobil 1 0w30esp which is listed under virgin oil analysis around page 9 or ten.

That's not M1 0W-40. M1 0W-40 has MUCH higher additive amounts.

Agree that it is ESP 0W-30, with the viscosity boosted by the additive.

Mercedes no longer uses Mobil 1 0w40 at the dealer level. There is a Mercedes branded 5w40 that is being used. Not sure who makes it though.

True. I think they stopped using the M1 at the dealers because of the sponsorship from Petronas in F1 Racing.

But, I think M1 bottles the MB brand oil. Or at least they get their bottles from the same vendor. Compare the MB bottle to the Mobil Super bottle:



Only difference is the plastic color. Label sticker is even the same shape.
I wish M1 made a 5W-40 for sale over the counter.. thumbsup

They make M1 0W-40, but no 5W-40.

Shears out of grade but that's fine though, as the oil is still serviceable for extended OCI IMHO.
