223.2   Specified engine oils (service) - overview

Select Sheet 
Overview  

Single grade and multigrade oils can be used year round, taking the outside temperature into account (for application ranges, see sheet 224.1, sheet 224.2).

Before the cold season begins, ensure that the viscosity class (SAE-grade) used is sufficient for the outside temperatures to be expected.

Notes:

The general rule is that the binding oil quality (MB sheet) can be found in the respective vehicle operator's manual.

This table only contains oil types for engines that are currently in production.

Information on unlisted, older engine models can be found in the vehicle operator's manuals or the maintenance procedures.

The prescribed engine oil change interval may depend on the engine oil specification used. Details can be found in the vehicle operator's manual, the service information or the maintenance procedures.

Before the cold season, ensure that the viscosity class (SAE-grade) used is sufficient for the outside temperatures to be expected.



● Approval

○ Can only be used in exceptional cases or under certain operating conditions/in certain applications.

- May not be used.

1.) Restriction: Only SAE-grade 5W-50 products are permitted.

2.) Restriction: Only SAE 0W-40 and SAE 5W-40 engine oils may be used!

3.) Recommendation: In order to guarantee the cold start ability at temperatures below -20 °C as well as the best possible lubrication behavior at low outside temperatures and due to increased loads (e.g. due to alternative fuels), the viscosities SAE 0W-30, 0W-40 or SAE 5W-30, 5W-40 are recommended as year-round oils for van engines. Please note the application temperature ranges in the operator's manual or on sheet 224.1 in this regard.

4.) The product "Mercedes-Benz engine oil MB 229.51 BlueTEC" is also permitted.
