What is the best brand and viscosity of oil for a 560SL? Is there a brand that I should stay away from?

Thank for your help.

I've used Castrol 20W/50 in all the 450/380/560SL's I've owned with good results...Our lowest temp in the Deep South is in the high teens/low 20's Farenheit

Mercedes Benz approves Mobil-1 0W40 for the gasoline engines readily available in the US market. Make sure you stay with an oil on their approved list. See your dealer or research on line.
