synthetic oil versus synthetic blend


New member
I purchased my 2018 GLA 250 4 matic from a Ford dealership. In doing so I get two free oil changes. MB says I have to use full synthetic (their stuff) Ford typically uses synthetic blend. If I get Ford to use full synthetic they will use Mobile 1. Will I have a problem is they do a switch and bait and use synthetic blend ?
