Hi,
Sure enough, this HX8 blotter demonstrates complete absence of soot and centre zone indicating this 1069 km oil is as new as virgin.

Btw, there appears to be no fuel dilution problem in this blotter spot test.

You're most welcome, sharing blotters of HX8 5W30 with other readers here with a view of 'ascertaining' the quality or efficacy of this oil.

Btw, Shell Malaysia claims MB 229.5 which I am doubtful of .......
can anyone confirms it with a packaging image ?

Unlikely to be mercedes side fault, if you scroll back up near the top, see the right side before the list begins, it is the date last updated.

And last updated yesterday icon_rolleyes.gif

Hi Chemistry,
can you take a closer look at the picture, if you've a higher resolution one, to establish this HX8 X 5W30 is MB 229.5 or 229.3 ?
I've images showing HX8 (without X) 5W30 from Russia, Indonesia and Australia/NZ showing MB 229.3.

Not sure whether you're suggesting 90Boyz's HX8 5W30 has MB 229.5 approval.

However accoding to your link, MB 229.5 only applies to Helix HX8 0W30 and 0W40, not 5W30 :

whereas MB 229.3 includes HX8 5W30 :
