Octane for '99 CLK430
Just recently purchased my 99 CLK430. It's a beautiful car and has been treated with the utmost care and respect. This is my first Mercedes, so there are a lot of things I do not know about my new car. Definitely a newbie.
The operator's manual calls for 91 octane. After doing a little research, I came to the conclusion that European octane ratings differ from American/Canadian ratings. I live in the USofA and want to know exactly what to put in my new cream puff.
Any insight, suggestions for a new owner, constructive criticisms, or ideas will be appreciated. Thanks for the help.
