Right, going with 10w40.
Also just got the receipt a couple days ago from Mercedes (together with a couple liters of oil to top it off before driving it home from winter storage), they filled it up with 10w40 synthetic. I told them to add 10w40 but I thought they'd find it logic to use conventional mineral oil. They apparently didn't find it logical so they filled it up with 10w40 synthetic.
Draining the synthetic oil as we speak, going to give it 10w40 conventional mineral oil from Castrol. Do I need to do anything before doing the change from synthetic to mineral?
