Following a lead I recieved here ( ), I found Mobil 1 5W-40 TDT at TnT Auto Parts in Silver Spring, MD. Need the stuff for my Saab 9-5 Aero. I bought two cases, they had quite a bit more than that. So if anybody in the DC area needs some, this looks to be a reliable place. They also had the new 5W-40 "ESP". I gather this is a new formulation for the diesels with the particulate filters and whatnot? It had some Daimler spec on the bottle, but not the laundry list found on the TDT. jeff

According to some info I found online, ESP stands for "Emission System Protection" Also found this tidbit: "Mobil 1 ESP Formula M 5W-40 229.51 According to an MBUSA bulletin this new low ash and low vapor pressure oil for clean diesel engines becomes available in the USA on May 15, 2006"
