Hi..there..

 

Ok. so i gather its a sprinter van... Im still not fully sure what info your looking for but if i asume your asking on the which to use then usually recommended at the 5w30 more common /5w40 and must meet the OEM MB spec like 288.5 for example for 5w/30 - however too its is vital the oil you add is of spec too if the van is fitted with DPF "diesel particulate filter" and must be of a low ash content.and helps extent the life of the filter..I do hope this helps..If you need to ask anything else or include anything further then just continue before you rate..
