Anyone have a good source for this stuff? I can't find it anywhere locally, and the few online sources I found want a ridiculous amount to ship it.
I'm giving another prop to Steve Schock at Europarts (www.europarts-sd.com). Steve knows his stuff (and he knows your Sprinter's needs).I use Europarts of San Diego. <snip>
Mobil 1 0w40 was $4.99 here. Why are you using a 229.51 oil? The NAPA I visited didn't have the 229.51 variety.Periodically the NAPA parts dealers have Mobil 1 ESP on special, and people have been posting announcements about it here on the forum.
About a month ago i picked up 10 quarts for (i think) $5.99 each, based upon such a post.
I did check with my local checker. They couldnt' even find the stuff to order.
You guys ordering from europarts, are you getting Mobil 1 ESP or running the Fuchs stuff they show online?
My van has 75K on the clock and hasn't had any DPF/EGR issues. the ESP stuff has been used for every oil change so I'm thinking it's best to stick with that..
