Do the bottles of any oil you use read "Approved Mercedes Benz Specification MB229.5". Otherwise, it may be a great Mobil 1 but not the European Formula to meet ACEA B4 Specification. This is the only spec recognized for MB high performance today's gas engines.
The rest (pick of viscosity) is according to the locale and SAE specs, so 0W40, 5W30, 5W40 are all OK as long as the oil is to the ACEA aforementioned spec.
A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.
Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
