Thanks for reference.
Seems that after 1. e4 Cf6 2. e5 Ce4 3. d3 Cc5 4. d4 Ce6, the best is 5. Cf3 that leaves Black with a rather clumsy position.
5. d5 Cc5 6. b4 Ca6, White is suffering from some over-stretch.

Take a lot at this thread from a few years back - Stefan is the number 1 expert on this stuff (and a lot of other similar things!):

The answer is probably kind of no - absolute refutations are really rather rare to be honest. I'd imagine that white  should be able to get a +/= rather more easily than against some other options.

it seems to me that this Mokele Mbembe variation tends to spiral into nonsensical positions.
Is there a simple and reasonable way to refute Black's maneuvers?

I think it was Bob Carolgees.

1 e4 Cf6 2 e5 Ce4
Who called this variation "Mokele Mbembe"?
