Re: engine oil for w203 2001 model fully synthetic or semi
Hi benzz,

The best base oil for an engine oil is the Group 5 base oil, ester.

As far as i know, the following brands are the only locally-available brands that use ester as a base oil for their top-of-the-range engine oils:

1). Chemlube
2). Millers Oils
3). Motul
4). Prince
5). Ravenol
6). Red Line

Of the 6 brands above, only Chemlube and Red Line use ester for all their products, i.e. these 2 brands do not use Groups 1, 2, 3 or 4 base oils.

You should also be aware that the term 'fully synthetic' should be used only for Group 4 or Group 5 base oil products. However, most manufacturers use the term 'fully synthetic' for their Group 3 base oil products. Technically, this is wrong as Group 3 base oils are hydro-cracked mineral oils.

In Germany, this practice is not allowed by law. Instead, the German manufacturers use the term 'HC Synthesis' for Group 3 base oil products.

Cheers,
Mike

If you don't know the history of the car then any branded semi-synthetic oil would be fine as the engine has already turned over 200K kms, but make it a point to replace both oil AND filter every 5000-7000km. If you have a fat wallet then going fully synthetic would be the luxurious ideal!
Good luck, safe driving.

Thanks Mike for the info. It is useful. Since my good friend Tommy from Chemlube left this world, I was thinking if I should continue to use Chemlube.(Cost in USD also much higher- Ha Ha Ha) With your explanation, I will continue with Chemlube.

HI Mike ,

I just thought of an idea. Can the Chemlube company / owner do a "small" tie up with all our mybenz owners.

Make an offer for mybenz owners cause there are many questions about what type of engine oil to use. Place an ad in our website as well.

I think it will be a win win position.

Something to think about for mybenz owners & chemlube as well.

Hi Joe,

Thank you for your custom all these years.

Tommy was my uncle (mum's younger brother), and he, my dad and another partner started importing and distributing Chemlube motor oils in 1985. I've been managing the company since Tommy's passing in 2012.

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Joe,

Sure, I'd be happy to do that. Let me have a think about how we can progress this.

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Mike,

Does your Chemlube 5w30 engine oil has MB approval 229.51?

Regards,

Johari
