More like $200. Eight quarts of Mobil One ain't cheap.

Could be a Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG -- that one takes about 10 quarts of oil.

Usually diesels take 7-7.5 liters. the 4 and 6 cyllineder Mercedes take less than than, around 4.5-5 liters.

My dad's big block Chevy (427 block bored at 366) work truck with a double filter, oil cooler and an extra large oil pan takes 10 quarts. I didn't realize any cars actually did.

Re: AMEX Platinum vs AMEX Mercedes-Benz Platinum

I can only imagine if I bought my car on this card. i just got a Mercedes.

 

This card is a revolver right? I doubt that it would come close to my 1.99 APR that i got :smileyhappy:
