Speaking of oil ...

Here's a link to a newsletter from Blackstone Labs - the oil analysis folks. Not sure that there's any specific takeaway from the newsletter, but it does make interesting reading.

Thanks for posting. After reading the article I want to track down 5-40 oil under the 229.51 spec that still applies to my Sprinter. The 5-30 oils showed an increased wear trend in the Diesel engine reviewed . I worry that the new use of 0-30 may be worse .

I found this article after reading a little more on viscosity.

Motor Oils - Fuel Economy vs. Wear

Now more convinced to find 5-40 oil especially since cold starting is not an issue for me here in Florida and I've been able to avoid the sludgy biodiesel when refueling.
