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

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