Well the wording for a Mercedes-Benz approvals is incorrect and they don't show up on the BeVo website, so those are not actual approvals. I also don't see any "Sunoco" oils on the Audi/VW list, so I'll make the guess they aren't VW approved either. They don't show up on the dexos website so not dexos licensed. Looks like a lot of unsubstantiated hoopla, even the API licensing appears sketchy. No Sunoco 0W-40 is listed, and none of the Sunoco oils on the ELOCS website have the word "Euro" in them.

I haven't checked your other claims but they definitely show up for dexos. [Linked Image]

My mistake, you're right. Didn't realize it was d2 that was specified. I can't imagine that Sunoco (A rather big brand name) would lie about specifications, but you're right, d2 license isn't listed on the site.

Sunoco is available in the East Coast. I been loyal to Chevron gas in the West Coast. After moving to East Coast, there is no Chevron so I tried Exxon for a while. Then I saw Sunoco, gave it a try and stuck to Sunoco since.

Probably a great product. No 229.52 = No current benz diesels. UD
