oil filters

I've been led to believe that MB doesn't actually make their own filters (like they don't make their "own" brake pads) but use Mann, Hengst & Bosch production.

I've been told they are pretty much interchangeable, but could certainly be wrong. I bet a search would find a discussion or two.

Delo's great stuff. It is my personal belief that any of the Fleet (S?/C?) type oils in 15W-40 provide tremendous protection & cleaning in gas engines. Not necessarily for those extra long "extended drain" intervals, though. That's where 100%Synthetics and oil analysis come in. I go 5K miles betwen changes. Oil's cheap: MB parts are NOT!
