For Vehicles With Flexible Service System (FSS or FSS PLUS) - U.S. vehicles
Model Year 1998 - Model Year 2004 Mercedes-Benz recommends that you use
only MB-approved synthetic motor oil for all vehicles equipped with the Flexible
Service System (FSS or FSS PLUS).

Conventional petroleum-based oils must not be used for vehicles equipped with the
Flexible Service System but may be used on older vehicles. If the engine oil used
does not meet the above mentioned standard, engine damage is possible,
which is not covered by the Mercedes-Benz New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

The use of any oil additives is not recommended by Mercedes-Benz USA and
may result in damage to the engine which is not covered by the Mercedes-Benz New
Vehicle Limited Warranty.
