Thumbs up 1991 420SEL @ 135+K

Using 5K oil & filter change intervals, 8 quarts of Pennzoil LongLife 15W-40 (dino) puts the level square in the middle of the dipstick.

Have never needed to add more between changes as the level always remained well above the low mark.

p.s. 8 quarts between changes is WAY excessive, IMHO, but the oil should never go out of grade because of so much fresh oil being added. I would certainly go with a heavier weight oil than a 0W-30 in AZ.
