Can anyone recommend a decent oil for a CLK 270 CDI, that provides good value for money?

I was looking on the internet yesterday for some and the one recommended for my car is 5W-30, which seems to be more expensive than 5W-40. Shell do one called "Shell Helix Ultra Extra 5W/30" which costs £68.15 for six litres and Castrol have one called "Castrol Edge 5W/30" which costs £61.10 for four litres.

Does anyone know of any other oils that will be of a similar quality but a bit cheaper?

Also how much will I need for an oil change?


Thanks in advance.

You can use any make that conforms to the spec "meets 229,3 or 5" , 5 being the latest

You cannot beat Mobil 1, especially at £23 for 4 litres from Costco.

My 220CDi takes 6.5 litres, the 270CDi must have at least that if not slightly more?

I'm pretty sure that my 53 plate E270 CDi uses 5W 40 will check in the hand book and repost
