Gasoline and Diesel oil for EURO IV engines 100% Synthetic

Engines compliant with EURO IV anti pollution regulation are fitted with sensitive systems for exhaust gas post treatment :
- Sulphur and Phosphorus inhibit catalytic convertors operation and can damage catalytic components : inefficient exhaust gas treatment.
- Sulphated Ashes clog diesel particulate filters : shorten regenerating cycle, higher fuel consumption and engine power loss.
Mercedes-Benz developed MB 229.52 standard for Mid SAPS lubricants (low Sulphur, Phosphorus
and Sulphated Ashes) compatible with post treatment systems. Those oils allow reaching flexible drain intervals managed by computer on board.

Drain interval : refer to manufacturers’ recommendations and tune to your own use.
Do not mix with lubricants not MB 229.52 compliant.

SHIPPING IS FREE* for orders of £75 and over , regardless of the weight of your order.
We've tried to keep all other shipping costs as low as we can.

Carriage starts at just £0.95 (inc VAT) for small items, with our most common courier rate set at £4.99 for orders of 5kg (enough for 5 litres of oil).

  • *Free shipping is available for UK Royal Mail, UPS Access Point™ (click & collect) and standard UK courier services (not express / priority / islands).
  • Courier surcharges mean we are unable to offer free "to the door" courier shipping from us in Cornwall up to Highlands / Grampian in Scotland - and because we send a lot of liquids, not every courier option is available to us. UPS Access Point™ (click & collect) is available as a free shipping option across Scotland, Wales and England, wherever there is a UPS Access Point™ Location.
  • Carriage charges are based on weight - please see our table of carriage costs for full details (although adding an item to your cart and viewing the calculated carriage is often easier!).
  • Priority shipping is also available.
