Thanks so much..8 qts?.....What is it, GOLD??? What does "use Mercedes Benz engine only" refer to?

Don't remember what the bulletin says, would have to read it again, But welcome to the world of Mercedes Benz. They do a lot with their engineering to design that their fluids and such only be used. When they owned Chrysler they had components manufactured in such a manner if you didn't use the Anti-Freeze designed for that vehicle, the components would corrode. Good Luck and it's 8 and 1/2 qts.
