sstomcat, I suggest you go with Mobil 1 0W40 Synthetic. The FSS should tell you when to change the oil, which is typically around 10,000 miles.

2002 Mercedes-Benz ML320 (sold)
2011 Chrysler Town & Country
2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid
2003 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic
2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5

Agreed! Though I still change mine at 5k intervals. The oil is so clear I cannot tell the oil level on my dip stick after 68k miles.

I was low on cash...kragen was near, dealer far...filter was dirty... replaced and to this day, no sand in intake.

The W163 forum will provide you with a lot of information. There is a search function as well.
