I always use Castrol 20/50.
isnt that too thick for a 4 cyl in cold weather?

I have a 190E 16 valve, and I change oil (or have been) twice a year or about 5,000 mile intervals. I used Mobile 1 15w-50 in the Summer and Mobil1 10w-30 in the Winter in the past. Currently I've changed over to Mobil 1 0w-40 for all year use. It seems to run very nicely on it.
