I had tried synt on my 136,000 mi '92 190E 2.6 and found it too be too thin and the oil found its way out of every little gasket leak it could find...stick to dino for these high mileage cars in my opinion. I have Mobil 15w50 in my 500E for about 2000 miles and will be switching back to dino or semi-synt after the 3000 miles are up...I have not seen or noticed any improvement with the synt other than my wallet being lighter after buying the does work great on my SCCA racer though which revs at high rpms all day long.
