Thank you

My definition of special oil = can't get it at the average fuel station.

It is a relief to me that you documented the options.

Thanks again.

I like Mobil but others might not.

No problem. I know people hate being locked into one specific brand of things, especially oil.

IIRC, the MB 5w-40 sold here is a mobil product. Ill have to research if it is delvac 1, aka turbo diesel truck, or not; Id doubt it, as likely it is a low SAPS product.

Current Diesels:
1981 240D (73K)
1982 300CD (162k)
1991 350SD (113k)

Past Diesels:
1983 300D (228K)
1985 300D (233K)
