The Mercedes-Benz C240 uses 5W-40 synthetic oil. Mercedes-Benz recommends using Mobil1 synthetic in your C240. When you change the oil in your C240, you need to drain the oil from the oil pan before you remove the filter. Use caution to save the brass washer when you remove the drain plug from the pan. Change the oil in your C240 every 10,000 miles or at the prompt of your "Service Required" indicator.
