This is in general, not MB Specific: I don't know where the break is, somewhere around mid 90s to 2000, but post 2000 gas engines need thin oil, and 15-50 may do damage, unless it is really worn. most are 0W-20 and some are 0W-30.

Consult the owners manual and the approved oils list for MB

And a little EPC research tells me it's got flat tappets.

So, stick with Turbo Diesel Truck or 15w50?
Or have they taken the zinc out of the 15W50 by now?
