Hi y'all!! I just bought a 1981 240D. It is such a cool car - I've never had anything like this.!The ride is just great and I love the fact that the wind and/or passing trucks don't push me off the road.

Does anybody have a recommendation for the oil I should be using? I was at a parts store to get oil - 10W40. But I read somehwere that I should get oil specifically made for diesels. Any ideas??

Here's the information straight from Mercedes.

There's no reason to use oil "'specially for diesels" as that's mostly marketing, except in relationship to 2007 and newer models with diesel particulate filter.

You'll find that Mercedes 229.5 oils are synthetics and Mobil 1 0W-40 European Formula is easiest to find.
