Look in your owners manual for oil specs. If you don't have one, I would go with a 10w-30 oil, and change it and the filter every 3000 miles.

Mercedes call for in all temperatures5/50 W oil, in temperatures above 32 degrees F call for 20/40W, SF/CC, or SF/CD class oil.
8.5 quarts with an oil filter change. I always change the oil in my cars at 3000 miles, none call for synthetic oil, with synthetic oil I would still change the oil every 5000 miles.
