Hello.

I have a w210 300 TD '98 with 106 000 miles. I bought the car at Berlin and until now I covered 7500 miles. The level of the oil is in the half, and other day in a very step road, the warning of low level engine oil appears.

Is this normal?

When I came from Berlin the level was OK not Max but almost.

Is usual this engine spends oil?

Greetings and thanks for the answers.

Pedro,

In general an MB motor will use oil much faster between the MAX and the midpoint on the stick. You shouldn't need to worry about the oil level until it hits the MIN level or the light goes off. Then fill it to the mid point (~1L). Keep doing that and I suspect that you will find that your oil consumption fears will vanish.
