MB229.52 is no exception. Introduced in 2012, it is designed for use in vehicles fitted with advanced exhaust after-treatment devices which meet Euro 6 requirements. These devices were particularly tailored for use with Mercedes Benz vehicles equipped with BlueTEC diesel technology. To meet these requirements, the lubricant needs to be formulated with lower levels of sulphur and phosphorus, as well as the metallic elements that give rise to sulphated ash when combusted.
But this is not the only requirement needed to gain an MB229.52 approval. Enhanced fuel economy is also a condition for this demanding specification: a fuel economy improvement of at least 0.7% over the equivalent MB229.51 lubricant is required.
MB229.52 was developed with the aim of offering all round performance and protection.
Building on the baseline of ACEA C3, the specification offers enhanced performance in the areas of oxidation, wear and corrosion.
Oxidation is of particular concern in modern engines because in recent years power densities have increased dramatically. Turbocharging, for example, is now commonplace in both gasoline and diesel powered vehicles but these devices operate at extremely high temperatures. A traditional mineral engine lubricant would quickly oxidize, giving rise to oil thickening, deposit formation, sludge and harmful by-products of oxidation. To meet the MB229.52 testing regime, the lubricant must be capable of withstanding the temperatures and pressures experienced in modern engines. In addition, MB 229.52 is also designed to be suitable for use with biodiesel, where there is a propensity for increased oxidation.
When choosing an engine oil, it is essential to use an oil fully approved to MB229.52 by Daimler, and to have the approval confirmed by checking its entry in the MB BeVo-ONLINE system, managed by Daimler to control and approve suitable operating fluids.
The name of the MB specifications derives from the Mercedes Bluebook scheme, divided by numbered paragraphs and pages. It is used by dealers to identify the products certified by the manufacturer and their correct application on the engines.
- MB 226.5
- This specification is required for Mercedes vehicles with gasoline engines supplied by the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Specification requirements are similar to MB 229.5.
- MB 226.51
- This specification is based on RN0720 and is recommended for Mercedes vehicles with DPF fitted diesel engines supplied by Renault. Oils meeting this specification have very good thermal stability and aftertreatment compatibility.
- MB 229.1
- For petrol and diesel engines. Minimum quality required ACEA A2/B2 with additional limits on engine.
- MB 229.3
- For petrol and diesel engines. Minimum quality required ACEA A3 / B3 / B4 and MB 229.1. It can only certify 0/ 5 W-x oils.
- MB 229.31
- Multigrade, low SAPS engine oil, advised for both diesel and petrol engines of Mercedes Benz, Smart and Chrysler. Only low viscosity engine oils which can realize a 1,0% saving on used fuel in the M111 Fuel economy test (CEC L-54-T-96) can get this approval. In this test the fuel savings are compared to the performance of the Reference oil RL 191 (SAE 15W-40).
- MB 229.5
- MB sheet for energy conserving oils for certain car and van engines. Approved oils must meet ACEA A3, B3 and B4 specification and some additional demands by Daimler Chrysler AG. Oil must be on the approval list.
- MB 229.51
- Low SAPS Long Life engine oil for diesel engines with particle filter meeting emission EU-4 -> standards.
- MB 229.52
- Oils meeting this specifications must have lower ash content, at least 1% better fuel economy compared to the requirements of MB 229.31 and MB 229.51 and better oxidation stability for biofuel compatibility. Can also be used where an MB 229.31 or an MB 229.51 oil is required. Just like MB 229.5 and MB 229.51 this spec requires a long life oil.
