I've spent the last two days reading many posts about recommended oil types and changing intervals. Unfortunatly most of the posts I've read are in reference to E-Class and C-Class Mercedes. Since the S-Class are so much larger, I would imagine whats great for the E and C Classes may not be so great for my S-Class.<br> <br> My driving habits? I baby my Benz. No hard cornering, no rapid accelleration except for getting on the freeway, no hard braking and I try to only take it out for long freeway trips of 50 miles or more. My wife, unfortunatly, often takes it for short trips to school and to the store.<br> <br> I live in Southern California where temps are rarely below 40. I travel to Las Vegas about 4-6 times per year.<br> <br> From what I've read, Mobil 1 Tri Syn seems to be very popular. Does 20W 50W seem right for me. Walmart seems to have the best price.<br> <br> Thanxxx i advance for any input.
