My dad just got a 2001 Benz CLK320 with no owners manual! I found a sticker under the hood saying Mobil1 is recommended. But no weight was spec. Anyone have this car living in 20-90 degree temp area?

That car should take about 9.5 liters of Mobil-1 0W-40. However, the engine is also spec'd for 0W-30, 5W-40, 10W-40, etc. It's a beast so it isn't very picky about what it eats. [ March 09, 2004, 06:21 AM: Message edited by: FowVay ]

So, which is heavier ? A pound of oil, or a pound of water ? Which is more dense ?
