There are no other 15W-40 approved oils.

Shell Rotella T6 Multi Vehicle 5W-30, free pickup at my local Walmart. The grade is irrelevant with the MB approval requirement.

Check your local AZ stores, I scored 5 gallons on XLE 15W40 for $5 each! Hard to beat Delo HDEO.

DELO XLE is arguably the best value in HDEO.
