Sounds interesting, can you share the source of this information?

MB229.5 has a bit of higher fuel economy demenads. However, if you ahve both oils with HTHS of 3.7, that is hypothetical laboratory saving.

Since we're being precise, I have no idea where this 1.8% number came from? The MB229.5 spec requires testing in the M111FE, with different minimum limits for xW-30 and xW-40. Neither limit is 1.8%. Furthermore there is also an M111FE limit for MB229.3, but it is lower than for MB229.5. MB229.5 also requires testing in a chassis dyno FE test, whereas MB229.3 doesn't.

Source? Well, MB don't publish their specs publicly, but you can get an idea here. It's a bit old and the MB spec have been updated since then, but they are similar to this.

Maybe, because it can be 5W-50 with 229.3, but not with 229.5? I can imagine, than between thikest 5W-50 and thinny 0W-40, we can achieve 1.8% savings whistle

"Its a trap!" wink
