Is this mandatory in 2000-2006 sprinters or can you use a auto parts store brand? I will be changing my water pump in the next 20k and want to make sure I use the correct kind before below freezing temps come around.

claims that Zerex G-05 sold at Napa is appropriate.

My memory agrees with that (but i'm being lazy and haven't dug out the official MB BEVO sheets)

It might be just as inexpensive to get the mercedes oem stuff and mix it 50/50 you get two jugs for around 19 bucks

Napa prices

$16.99 gal 100%
$11.99 premixed

Looks like only a dollar savings I think I'll pay a dollar or two more and get the oem MB coolant
