I've been changing oil on Benzes for years and I can tell you what kind of oil has been used in the engine.I don't know about the latest oils on the market but I can tell you this: You get what you pay for.Stay away from Parafin based oils As they have a tendency to sludge(I cleaned a 119 engine that had been running on penzoil or quaker state for 55 000 miles and spent hours with a butter nife...litterally.The client complaint was "lack of oil pressure")Myself, I use valvoline on my car and never had a problem.Mobil one will give you exelent results But you'll pay for it...
