Your fine. 5-40w is also good. Lately I got oil changed with Castrol Syntec 5-40w. Put hard track miles, just driving it hard. Checked oil level after 700miles. Still on the full line. Don't know is it because of I switch brands, previous was Mobil 1 5-40. The latter the level went down. Maybe Castrol syntec is better?

Thanks for bringing this one up (again). Went to my local oil pusher and for some reason he is only stocking Mobile 1 05 W50.

Am I safe adding this on top of the w40 which I'm currently running?

As long as the oil is rated as MB 229.5 approved, then you should be fine.

Your dealer is telling you information that contradicts what is stated in the owners manual. I confirmed it with my mb master tech and he told me to use 0w-40. 229.5

My dealer said they use 5W-40. What's the difference between 5W-40 and 0W-40?

0-40w is for really cold climates.

Motul is the best oil PERIOD. I only use the Motul 8100 X-max for oil changes in 63's.

I fact, I only use's Motul in ALL CHANGEABLE fluid services(brake, coolant, gear oil.etc)!

I would tell them to use the correct weight 0W-40 and make sure that oil they are using is in the 229.5 spec list.

0w40 is better for cold starts as it is more liquid when cold. The negative point is the engine consumes more oil with the 0 than 5 when cold.
