My first gasser oil change- need advice

Hi Guys-

I just acquired a 1995 E320 wagon for $3200. No rust and the A/C actually works.

This is actually the first MB gasser that I will be changing the oil. I've purchased the Mann oil filter but I'm confused as to what oil to get.

The Castrol website says I have to use special MB oil. Really?

I've always used Mobil 1 in my other cars. What Mobil1 weight should I use?

Pictures coming later!

I recommend using diesel grade 15-40W such as Chevron Delo 400 or Shell Rotella-T (Delo has more cleaning additives though based on my oil analysis) and it'll keep that top end squeaky clean and give it the ZDDP additive package it needs for decreased wear.

I used the same oil I used for my diesels, at the recommendation of my mechanic. Mobile Delvav 1300 super 15w40. This was in my E320 Cabriolet btw
