The Mobile Oil website has a good tool for determining oils for specific cars. It recommends a 0-30 for your specific vehicle.

My E420 runs 10-40 in colder months and 20-50 in summer. Just Castrol GTX since it was new so I won't be changing since it's still running 100%

The Porsche 944 is oil burning so whenever I top it off, I try something new. I try to keep the weight up (50 weight) to reduce burning.

I've tried:

Mobil One 15W-50
Castrol High Mileage 20W-50
Castrol GTX 10W-40
Castrol GTX 20W-50
Castrol Syntec 5W-50

The one that burns the slowest is Castrol 5-50

- just my observation -

The Mobil 1 site recomends 0W-40 for my 94' E420. Seems a little on the light side??
