Mobile 1 Synthetic is the way to go!!

Hm.. why the Canadian MBs still have Quaker State???

Also, by old thumbs rule, it MIGHT be better to use none-synthetic oil from factory 'til after break in period. Using Synthetic oil at the beginning may not give piston rings enough friction to seat themselves properly. But not sure if the "old" rules still apply??

Any thoughts, guys??
