Use the cheapest oil you can buy from supermarket ,something like a 10/40 or a 20/50 that says diesel/petrol on the can ,mineral or synthetic it doesnt matter and change every 6000m with a oil filter every third oil change and this will keep the inside of the engine clean .So long as the inside of the engine is clean this will prevent problems with hydraulic tappets and gummed up piston rings .Too much hype is made from oil companies about their particular brand of oil and how long it will last ,this is ok but it allows the inside of the engine to gum up with clag i have found this system i use works on all cars and keeps costs down for the customer ,never had a engine fail on me yet for any of my customers ,now i have had engines blow up after i have changed the oil but this was caused by them not having the oil changed regular and the clag inside has been liberated by new oil and got caught up in the oil pick up filter and BANG big ends gone ,change it as stated and you will never have a problem

The best engine oil for your car is what is specified in the owner's manual. There should also be writing on the top of the oil fill cap saying what kind of oil is needed. This type of oil is specified because that is what Mercedes designed the motor to use.
