I am looking for a 0W40 oil that is 229.51 approved and easily available in Canada. I can not find an easy one to buy. Any suggestions? Roger

M1 FS 0w-40 does not meet MB 229.51 spec. But the upcoming M1 0w-40 ESP will.

M1 5w-30 ESP meets it also.

Mercedes.

Mercedes-specific Mobil 1 Formula M 5W-40 is reasonably priced at dealers, in addition to the 0W-40 oils from the major players.

MB dealers. Easily available, but not cheap.
229.51 has been superceded by 229.52. It's a MB diesel oil spec.

Google 229.5 Itís off a Mercedes Benz list.

The OP is asking about 229.51 which is a different spec from 229.5.
229.51 is low SAPS.

Which explains why Castrol Edge 0w-40 (Euro) went back to lower calcium, high magnesium mix 1-2 years ago.

The MB 229.51 approved Edge is the 0W-40 C3. The 0W-40 A3/B4 is 229.5 approved.
