Why Rotella?

What is the BEST Oil to use in our MB engines ? I look forward to this lengthy discussion, and hopefully this post will be a favorite thanks
You obviously didn't search thoroughly enough. Oil types are among the most hotly discussed threads on this forum. Oh, and BTW, it's Larry "Bible", and "Benzmac" is one of the partners here, not just a "senior member".

If I had a 1987 300E, I would change to Mobil 1 at my next oil change, and stay with it. Why? Because Mercedes ships all of their cars from the factory with Mobil 1 in the crankcase.

There is no way I would use Shell Rotella, even in a diesel engine...
