So has anyone heard of or used this oil before? I bought a case while at Pep Boys stocking up on Red Line Diesel Catalyst. It said on the back of the bottle that it meets Mercedes-Benz and VW diesel engine oil standards. I normally use Castrol GTX 10W-40, but perhaps this will lubricate better during those long hard Italian tune-ups!

I have been using it for about 3 1/2 years on my 83/300CDT.
I selected it only because it was the only oil I could find which specifically stated use for MB diesel cars.
I have no complaints.
