    I'm running a S124 E300d and was wondering wether it was better to buy cheap oil and change it frequently or buy decent oil but change it less often?
    Also what the general opinion of Castrol GTX as its £10 for 4litres at ASDA at the moment which sounds like a good deal to me.

    10W40 DIESEL semisynthetic and change it at 5/6 K e.g. FUCHS Titan XTR 10W40 or Shell Helix HX7 10W-40 semisynthetic
    or if you want to extend those oil changes a bit say to 9/10 K Fuchs TITAN SYN DIESEL 10W-40 Ultimate Performance, Full Synthetic,

    Really depends on how averse you are to changing oil?
