Thank for the info and link Kirill.
Did you happen to notice that the 5W40 that Mercedes is supposedly now recommending is only shown on the Mobil1 website as the one designed for diesel engines?
I have been anxious to change to the newer viscosity, and I don't mind buying a couple of quarts from the dealer. One of the managers at AutoZone said that "diesel variety" should be fine, but I don't like the sound of it. Plus, we looked on a bottle they had on the shelf and there was no mention of the MB specs on the label.
