    Hi everyone,
    Ive recently bought an ML430 (W Reg - 2000) LPG.
    What would be the recommended oil for it?
    It says on its last service 5w 30 fully synth was used, is this right?

    Cheers

    Any of these should suit, although some SI engines are restricted to 0w-40 and 5w-40. Mobil, Fuchs and Shell are the ones I tend to use.
