Be careful which oils you use in your Sprinters! Just because it's synthetic and the viscosity matches, does not mean they are suitable for use in the 3.0 engine.
This is a list of oils that meet the MB specification 229.51
These are all low SAPS (sulfated ash, phosphorus, sulfur) oils suitable for use in engines with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). Although mid and high SAPS oils probably are better for engine wear, they will damage the DPF.
Mobil 1 has a euro spec low SAPS oil. I personally use Amsoil.
Please don't risk a DPF replacment just to save a few dollars on oil changes. It will cost more in the long run - a lot more!
