On my 1977 240D I used conventional oil since new. I changed to Mobil 1(15W50 at 100k miles. Now has 170k miles. Runs very well. Looks good when the valve cover is off. Change oil and filter every 3k miles. When I removed the oil sump pan awhile ago to bang out a dent, very little sludge or detritus found. I cannot tell how I would have fared had I not changed to synthetic, but I can certainly note that things look good now.
