Does anyone know of a cheaper place for Mobil1 0W40 oil than this place...

http://store.parkplacestores-mb.com/mo1syoil0.html

...or maybe any other MB recommended oils.

Figuring on ordering 39 bottles for 4 oil changes; 9.5 quarts x 4 = 38 + 1 quart (if i spill any) = 39 quarts.

Thanks,
Seek

Best I can do is buy direct from the Mobil distributor at AU $6.00 per lire in a 20 litre drum Mobilone devalc 2006 5-40 that's not a bad price
Dam that's about nine yanky dollars:eek:
You guys do get it cheap at your end LOL

Thanks Roger. Too bad the Walmarts around here don't stock the 0w40's. I'll have to look again.

Hi Folks just remember the old Castrol Add Oils ain't oils!
There are different oils for different years.
Some of theolder 2004 2005 oils are not emission compliantfor 2006 EPA Bin8 regulations
Be careful with what you put in outside of Mercedes recomendations
oil companies have a nasty trick to get the oils to meet specifactions
so add quality long life Synthetic oils
Change the transmission oil at half the recomended time frame if your on long runs in high climatic conditions, the viscosity breaks down very fast when the oil gets too hot.
The following link will give you all options for oils

Walmart's regular price for all Mobil 1 including 0W40 is $5.92. 4 qt containers are $22.97 (I think) but Walmart does not carry the 0W40 in 4qt.

I just bought 10 quarts on sale at Advance Auto Parts for $5.48 per quart.

Humm I guess seeing this 0w-40 Mobil 1 for $5.00 a quart wasn't to bad of a price :idunno:

Anyone using the Shell Rotella Multigrade T (15w-40) ? They sell that at a local BJ's Club and it's reasonablely priced in bulk 6 Gallons for $57. I few of my buddies use that in there diesel trucks & heavy equipment.

I'll be in need for a oil change in the near future :thumbup:

Hi Guys sounding off again like An old record stuck in the grove.
OK oils aint oils, use only specified oils or better than DC ratings
DCX has one set of rules D-B has a higher one,
So if we stay the course with US brands, here is a new link for qualification for oils to use with the Sprinters.

I most likely will go for the mobil 1 0w40 to see if it actually makes any improvement in the fuel economy but the Rotella seems to be fine by their spec sheet. It's a MB 228.3 rated. I'm sure the dealer put in Rotella.

Shells has a good reputation , I love the scallywags in the way they state fuel sulfur levels below 500 ppm
It's supposed to say 300ppm not to exceed 500ppm Grrrrrrr'

My Dealer says they use Mobil 0W40 during changes (and recommends the same )
