Which engine oil is the best for my car W202 193 Year 2000 C220 cdi, 160K Miles, due for B service. If I need to change gear box oil (automatic + t-tonic)
Thanks

Hi

I have a C240 V6 estate on a 03 plate. Having just had an oil change with my service and been charged £93 + vat for Castrol Longtec oil I was wondering a couple of things.

Good as the provided Castrol Longtec MB229.3 might be, can it really be that much better than the recommended, fully synthetic, Selenia 20K that I buy for my Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo, which costs £6.75 net from Fiat? Surly a highly stressed turbo of a sports car (being driven enthusiastically by me) needs as good if not better oil than a big un-stressed V6? (being driven gently by my wife). The fiat specialist site Selenia as being suitable for all cars as it is so advanced. Can that be true? Could I really not use ANY other brand fully synthetic 0W-30 oil

The service book for my MB says "You can use any oil approved by MB for use in MB vehicles." - If that were true then why all the standards above?

If I did provide an alternative oil to use at the next change, would I get into trouble with the warranty (I'm with 'warranty direct' but I'm talking generally) if a claim had to be made?

As far as I can tell from the specs given above of the Castrol longtec MB229.3 spec oil they used, service intervals can be up to 30,000 klm (18,642 mls), but the service counter on the computer is counting down to the next 10,000 mls. Can I go longer between changes? Should I ask for 229.1 spec next time if it is cheaper?

Thanks

Andrew

I think the straight answer to your question Andrew is yes - the lubricants would be good for a longer life than the servicing schedule allows - so I suppose the system "fails safe", and probably by quite a margin, especially on newer (2007 onwards) low mileage cars where ASSYST requires a service every year or 15,500 miles. Those who do sub 10,000 per year in such circumstances are not nearly taxing the endurance of synthetic oils.
