I guess. I've got a cumulative 600,000 miles on our two OM606's using Delo 400 15W40, and the untouched E300 is running perfectly. Note that I live in a warmer climate. If we had cold winters, I'd be tempted to use the 5W40 for winters.

I started out with a 15W40 synthetic oil when I first acquired my Wolf. But it's 8 months of winter plus 4 months of tough sledding here in the Alberta foothills and my Wolf didn't like that thick syrup. So 5W30 it is for these environs. My little OM602 seems to like it fine during what passes for summer here and winter starting is mucho better. I could only wish I lived someplace with a climate that warrants 15W40 ...
