Does anyone know the grade/kind of engine oil MB recommends, if there is any, for an 1997 SL320?<br> <br> I was told by my friend to go for Mobil1 Gold (0w40). Is this OK?<br> <br> Eric

10-40 high grade (like top-of-line Quaker State, or go first-class and use Mobil 1 or Castrol Syntec.<br> <br> Personally, if you go with the synthetic, you can just change the oil filter element each 3K miles until you get to 9K miles, then change both the oil and the element. The synthetic never wears out, it just gets naturally contaminated, thus the filter element to cleanse away the gasoline combustions process nasties.<br> <br> Iv'e done this with various vehicles over the years. Or, the convential wisdom of normal motor oil and filter every 3k miles.
