He pulled his oil and filter from the trunk and I noticed Motul 5w30. He started to work and I asked him why 5w30 and he started to going on about how great of an oil Motul is, I was like yeah I know Motul dude, indeed it is a good oil and he points out the label it is MB 229.5 approved but your viscosity is a little off, he goes that's ok as long as it is MB approved...
That very special flavor of stupid is popular around here. Pay no attention the oil weight or climate, the only thing that matter is MB approval. Sometimes I wonder if these people have daddy issues, hence their desperate need for approval. Go figure.
