Oil should meet MB 229.5 specification.

Mostly 5W-40, a few 0W-40, and even fewer 0W-30 oils meet this specification.

Mobil 1 Euro, Castrol Edge, both in 0W-40, and Pennzoil Euro.

Pennzoil is my favorite, it comes in two flavors, 5W-40, and a 0W-40.

For Canada, I would stick with a 0W-40.
It is also bottled as Shell Helix, and Quaker State Euro.

Careful, there are a lot of truck oils which look the same as Euro oil, but are for trucks, not Smarts.
