For decades, Mercedes-Benz has set its own manufac-turer’s specifications for the type of oils and fluids used in its cars and large trucks. These specifications exceed international standards, such as those set by the ACEA. The specifications are designed to accurately reflect the technology used in certain vehicles.
Mercedes-Benz distinguishes between its engine oils for use in car engines and those for use in commercial vehicles (including large trucks). Car motor oil specifications are always preceded with MB 226.x or MB 229.x, where the x represents one or two digits, for example MB 229.5 or MB 229.52. In this case, a higher number doesn’t necessarily mean the oil is better. Commercial vehicle motor oil specifications are always preceded with MB 228.x, where the x once again represents one or two digits, for example MB 228.5 or MB 228.51. Here, too, an oil with a higher number isn’t necessarily better than one with a lower number. Motor oils specified for cargo vans are usually those designed for cars. However, there are some Mercedes-Benz VITO models for which a 5W-30 engine oil, with the commercial vehicle specification MB 228.51, is explicitly and exclusively stipulated. Two examples are the VITO 109 CDI and 111 CDI with a 622.951 engine. The MPM product with official MB approval in this case is the MPM 05000LE.
Responding to the rising demand from its customers for this product, MPM’s product range now includes this product in a 5-liter container, with product number 05005LE. This 05005LE oil is increasingly being specified for various trucks from other manufacturers, as well. A 5-liter container is also useful for topping up trucks. MPM’s 05000LE oil should be used where a 5W-30 engine oil with any of the following specifications is recommended:
- ACEA E4, E6, E7, E9
- API CJ-4
- Caterpillar ECF-3
- Cummins CES 20081
- Deutz DQC IV-10 LA
- JASO DH-2
- MAN M 3271-1 / M 3477 / M 3677
- MB-Approval 228.51
- MTU Type 2.1 / Type 3.1
- Mack EO-M Plus / EO-N Premium Plus / EO-O Premium Plus
- Renault RGD / RLD-2 / RLD-3 / RXD
- Scania LDF-4
- Voith Retarder Oil class B
