Question about 2005 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz E320 Cdi
What is the best engine oil to use in the mercedes 320?
The best oil for any car is 5W-30 synthetic, I personally recommend Mobile 1. 5W-30 Synthetic flows more rapidly to engine parts thereby reducing "dry start" wear. In addition, full (not part) synthetics contain fewer additives (they don't need them) than conventional oils. Conventional oil additives "burn off" rapidly (500-1000 miles) after an oil change and sludge accumulates over time as a result.
Synthetic oils use much less of these additives (5% vs 20-30%) than conventional (Dinosaur oil) so there's much less sludge to build up. Synthetic oil also has a more uniform molecule size, this extends oil longevity and reduces running temperature.
I've personally used Mobile 1 for many yeas in my cars and would recommend it although I'm quite sure that other FULL synthetics would offer similar benefits.

Use a 20 50 synthetic blend
and allways change the oil every 2000 miles
if you go over 100 or 200 miles its ok.
i dont care what they say the cleaner the oil the far longer the miles.
allways use super unleaded fuel.
never ever put one drop of regular.
hope this helps .
