are these specs related to the engine type? or how, on the basis of these specs, choose whether 5W-40, 10W-40 or other is the right engine oil for my car?
Thanks Raoul,

In Brisbane/Australia I use a Penrite HPR 10 which is a 10W-50 Full Synthetic and am told by many (including some very good MB mechanics) that this is too high in viscosity, yet in checking with Penrite they verified that it does meet the 229.1 and 229.3 MB specs required (as below in the specs from Penrite for their HPR 10) -
