Sorry guy, but you are in wrong forum.Motor oil is something that helps keep engine parts lubricated and running in good condition. Most cars hold about 5 quarts of oil at any given time and it's recommended that you replace or change your motor oil every 3000-4000 miles.
i'm pretty sure Mobil1 5w-30 is fine for normal driving conditions, i use that in my cls because it is available more places. correct me if i'm wrong?Napa has Mobile 1 for $5 or so a few times a year, thats better than the almost $8 at Amazon.
If you don't need 0-40, Costco has a 6 pack of Mobile 1 for about $26 a few times a year with a $10 off coupon.
Amazon is good for a lot of things, but oil, at least this deal really isn't.
It will work, but technology moves forward and we are in 21 Century for few years already.i'm pretty sure Mobil1 5w-30 is fine for normal driving conditions, i use that in my cls because it is available more places. correct me if i'm wrong?
your not comparing apples to apples.It will work, but technology moves forward and we are in 21 Century for few years already.
My 12 years old MB has manual specifying SE/CD oil requirements.
12 years ago Mercedes oil specifications didn't exist. Than MB start diagnose of oil market and gave their recommendations. With those oils your engine will run better and last longer.
So legally I can drive on basically any oil on the market, but since I care, I go for better stuff available.
You wouldn't go back to using hand-crank calculator, would you?
hey JoeVal, i did look at the bottles, and they do have the ACEA stamp. i did not realize there was such a difference in good synthetic oil, and i thought mobil 1 was one of the best. i have a 07 Vette, and 05 H2, and they both call for mobil 1, so i figured it was fine for the cls. i appreciate the heads up on the oil. :thumbsup: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.
