Engine Oil MB 229.51 or 229.52 best for T1N's?

My apologies that I didn't communicate better.

After you pointed out that I wasn't clear, I modified my reply.

The Mobil 1 0-40 Full Synthetic European Car Formula MB229.5 BeVo approved oil you mention on sale is great for T1N's.

In the thread link that I provided there is supporting information as to why I would not use MB229.51 or MB229.52 oil in MY T1N's. (That is not the oil you posted as on sale.)


vic

P.S. -
To be clear, both MB229.51 and MB229.52 engine oil is fully approved for the T1N engines.
