Both oils are on sale at my local retailer. For my GLK350 which is the better performer overall?.... Next OCI this spring, therefore for warmer temps

If you can actually get Total, try it smile

Nice to see an oil that isn't the same thing everyone else uses. I've never seen any Total oil on a US store shelf. And I've seen PUP *and* I've even seen Amsoil, but never Total crzy

Total has popped up and more accessible now through Part source, owned by [censored] tire In Canada... Might be a sales market test to see if it would be worth selling in [censored] Tire

M1 0W-40 is a hard oil to beat, and itís a [censored] of a value. Total may be worse than the M1 and it costs more.

I do not know is it "worse" then M1 if it meets MB229.5.
This FS M1 is IMO unimpressive in all aspects.

Is the FS M1 the gold label 0W40?

What I have in my stock is the grey label "European Car Forumla" is this the better version? Its getting replaced?

thanks

I was just going to post about this "Total" oil and ask what it's all about? I noticed it today just scrolling through the Part Source weekly flyer and wondered if it was new, where it came from, etc? I noticed the price and thought to myself, its a pretty stout price for something that is new on the market, but maybe its not new at all?

Not saying it's worse, just saying it is seldom used here due to availability. I'd rather choose something that I know has a good track record. M1 0W-40 FS has lots of reviews and UOAs here and seems pretty solid (almost as good as it once was)... plus it's ~$4-5 per quart and readily available. If Total was the same price, I'd say go for it.

M1 FS doesn't even hold BMW LL-01 any more, while the TOTAL does. On TOTAL's TDS they don't claim that it is a full synthetic, just that it is "synthetic technology."

If you're gonna go with expensive French oil, go with Motul.

Agreed. However, I'll pass on French anything. Except maybe some fries.

Haha that's not really fair... Contrary to popular belief the French are pretty innovative and are responsible for a ton of high-tech stuff in the automotive and motorsport sector.

Haha fair enough. Iíll still pass on Total, though! Hard to justify the premium.

Nothign wrong with Total, they have some solid products and in South / Central Europe they outsell Mobil 1 by A LOT.
