Engine oils for Mercedes-Benz

Like many other German automobile manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz also publishes its own specifications for engine oils. Some of them are approved for the subsidiary Smart, too. With our Oilfinder you can find the right oil for your Mercedes-Benz. Our ADDINOL engine oils meet the requirements for Mercedes-Benz engines and guarantee you the best performance. The engine oils have good cold start behaviour and lubricate the engine reliably. Reduced friction and optimum corrosion protection increase the service life of the engine. At the same time, fuel costs and emissions are reduced for your Mercedes.
