    Oil Drain vs Extraction

    I used both methods. In the winter months I use the extraction method hooked up to my air compressor. Summer I tend to drain and fill. Mercedes dealerships here all use extraction.

    MB Metris oil and filter?

    I've used M1 0w40, Amsoil EFM 5w40 and PP 5w40. Sticking to PP 5w40 as its easy to get, on sale a lot at local auto parts store here in Canada (and I run pennzoil platinum in my other cars too) so might as well stick to the same brand.

    Canadian gas. My test.

    Great work on the Ethanol testing!. I switched from Esso 93 to Petro 94 few months back. I have a Mercedes-Benz c43 AMG that is aftermarket tuned so it definitely makes use of higher octane. Unfortunately, until Shell can bring to market an ethanol free 93 or 94 octane gas, im stuck with PC...

    105k civic r18 valvetrain pics

    Switch to Pennzoil platinum or Ultra for 2 OCI at about 8K each. See if the varnish goes away. I am also surprised like others here of the varnish created from a premium boutique oil. Check PCV and replace.

    2018 Mercedes AMG GLC43 Air Filters

    Nice!. I've replaced the filters in my C43 (same motor as your GLC43) with BMC filters. Can't say I notice much from it alone, however I do have my car tuned which would make use of the BMC filters. Also stick to OEM or Purflux oil filters. Mann's aren't same construction/material as OEM...

    Canadian gas. My test.

    What are you using to test? I want to compare Esso 93 vs Petro 94 on my tuned C43 AMG. I have torque app with bluetooth dongle.

    Hey Canucks - Petro Canada Fuel Discussion

    Does anyone know if Esso 93 contains ethanol? My C43 is tuned so I've been using Esso 93 or Petro 94 in it exclusively. I was running Shell 91 when it was stock.
