My local MB dealer is selling me this oil for the same price as M1 0W-40 (when it is not on rollback).

Does anyone know if this formula is still being produced by Mobil?

These shots were taken in January, 2019. It’s quite common at Walmart in Canada.

It would be great if you sent a VOA. I've always assumed that it was the same as the M5-40 which is about the same price as the MB oil.

Many people on here say that the MB 229.5 spec is a very high standard, one of the toughest. What about that spec makes people think highly of it??

#1 It's Mercedes Benz
#2 Lubrizol (Additive supplier) ranks it as one of the toughest specs relative to other Benz specs.
#3 You basically never hear about lubricant issues with regards to Mercedes Benz engines.

Some other highly regarded certs are. VW 504(Porsche C30) and Porsche A40,

Makes sense. My daughter has a 99 ML v6 with over 216,000 on it and it runs like a top. It's had a steady diet all it's life of Mobil 1 5-40M and 0-40. Most of the oil changes were around 5-7k by the same indy shop.

1. Most restrictive deposit control
2. Most restrictive max NOACK (10%).
3. Strict wear requirements
4. Strict oxidation requirements (though not as BMW LL01).

Those requirements require blenders to bland highly sophisticated oils.

11' VW Tiguan 2.0T (Castrol 0W40+MANN filter)
