PERFORMANCES AND APPROVALS
Mercedes Benz 229.51
Engines compliant with EURO IV anti pollution regulations are fitted with sensitive systems for post treatment of exhaust gases.
Sulphur and Phosphorus inhibit catalytic convertors operation and can damage catalytic components : inefficient exhaust gas treatment.
Sulphated Ashes clog diesel particulate filters : shortening the regenerating cycle, higher fuel consumption and engine power loss.
Mercedes-Benz developed MB 229.51 standard for Mid SAPS lubricants (low Sulphur, Phosphorus and Sulphated Ashes) compatible with post treatment systems.
This oil achieves flexible drain intervals managed by on board computers.
