First Time MB Owner - FUEL question
Just purchased a 2006 MB C280 with 8,000 from the dealer. It was their loaner car. I'm a driver who drives 7500 miles a year.
My questions is regarding fuel.
How important is it to use premium fuel only?
Is it OK to fuel up with regular unleaded once in awhile?
I had a BMW 325xi and used regular unleaded, Infiniti G35 same thing-never noticed a difference. I just keep reading to use premium fuel only - would this disrupt my warranties or something?
Plus-honestly-how do I know if this car hasn't been fueld with regualar unleaded since it's in service date? even with leased vehicles?
That is why I'm a bit confused.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
(Please no answers like - why would you do this to a benz? why purchase if your concerned about gas?) I'm being for real-this is my first benz-and really want to know.
