Question 09 w/M272 motor oil weight?

Hi,

No owners manual, so want to double check. I recall that my old C230 took 5w40 synthetic oil, and it had the same motor.

Is this the correct weight for the 09 M272 motor as well?

Also, if someone can direct me to an online owners manual, pdf or other format, I'd be grateful. Official MBZ only goes back to 2012.

Thanks!

You just want ot use an oil from this chart:

https://bevo.mercedes-benz.com/bevolisten/229.5_en.html

Since you are in a fairly mild climate that doesn't get very cold, you can use a 5w40. You may find the Mobil 1 0w40 more easily, though. As for the owner's manual, MBUSA claims they have it online, but it's not there. I have a few in my repertoire:

Personally, I think Mobile One is over rated. This is the same thing:

I run castrol in my other cars. It's become a good oil. And that price is right!

The only reason I use Mobil 1 0w40 is because it's readily available and not too expensive. My local Walmart carries it in 5 quart jugs for about $27 each. Last time I was in there, they only had one jug, so I found the Castrol Edge 0W-40 A3/B4 and used it. I think it was pretty much the same price, or maybe $1-$2 less.

Mobil 1 0w40 is currently at Walmart for $22.88 (5qt jug). If they don't have it in stock, order online and pickup later.

I live in a rural area and I have been purchasing my synthetic oil at a farm supply store that sell a brand called Rural King from Mid States Distributing. It has an API rating of SN and meets or surpasses the ILSAC G5 - same as Mobile One. Every so often they have it on sale for $2.50 a quart. A Real bargain. Use it in my tractors and my cars.

If it does not meet the MB 229.5 spec, then you should not use it for the extended (10K+ mile) change interval. You should change at no more than 7K mile intervals.

Since I only put about 5 to 7 k a year on the car, I change it once a year no matter what! And rarely is it driven at more than 70 MPH.
