Thank you for posting this information, Boom vang.
I recently had the Stealer****s do an oil change on my C240, figured they had the mental capacity to at least do an oil change correctly, but I was wrong.
Apparently Mobil 1 5W40 oil (Q-1-09-0144) is approved for this engine type, so that's fine.
The point is, I don't know why I waited this long, but two weeks after the oil change, I decided to fireup dynomode on the computer to see an accurate measure of oil, and it read 6.7 quarts
on a completely cold engine. So I thought to myself...this can't be right and poured in an additional quart of Mobil 0W-40. Now it's at somewhere between 7.5 and 7.7 quarts, which is ideal for this engine.
I guess this can serve as a warning for the rest of the newbs out there...always check your measurements...
