Red face Gasoline for Mercedez C280 1999

I have a 1999 C280 that requires premium gas as do all probably. Has anyone ever used regular. If so, did it cause problems?:

I dont know if you would have problems or not, but if it were me-I would use the premium gas that Mercedes says it needs.

Use whatever MB owner's manual says to use. You probably could use lower octane for a while, but I think it might catch up w/ you--and your car. See if the dealer can adjust the timing so that it would run okay w/ lower, if you really must, but also see if you can get Top Tier gas in whatever grade you choose.
