You are correct sir. What MB has done is in conjunction with Mobil is, agree to recommend that synthetic, since the previous one, 5w40 is no longer distributed in the US. Also, making the new one suitable for gasoline engines, which allows mobil to sell more of it. The previous oil had the moniker "formula M" meaning for Mercedes (diesel). You can just bet how much of that stuff got sold after spending oodles of formulation and testing with MB engineers. So, marketers step in and wella, the magic wand is waived, and we have a new recommended oil, broader use, different viscosity, etc. all is good, MAYBE. Just sayin'

FYI, there are 2 different fuel filters based on VIN and SA code. Parts catalog states "the correct filter must be verified at the vehicle". One filter sensor uses a 3 pin connector and the updated uses a 5 pin connector.

CaptDan, I couldn't open the video, but it's my system. It did say it was for 2002-06 models on the title. The filter is located about center engine on top. When you partialy remove the air intake (Blk plastic) housing and swing it out of the way, you get a much better view. You will need one specialty tool called a; Collar Hose Clamp Pliers Clic and Clic-R Type. Got mine on ebay for around $13 bucks. There was a guy who posted pics in Sprinter Forum with his narative, showing the steps. Hope that helps.

Heck, after you read that oil description, I'd vote for it if it was running for office even. I know we can't do anything about the viscosity change, so only time will tell. It's like a politician, promises, promises, then we get to see the performance.

Does any one have the Mann oil and fuel filter part numbers for a 2015 chassis? I am getting conflicting numbers with an online search.
