I use Chevron on a regular basis. Have used Arco when no other stations around in the past but really 98% of the time Chevron. More expensive then most other brands but Chevron is the station closest to me and I don't have many choices. A lot of other friends with MB's seem to like Chevron as well. My MB SA only puts Chevron in his Benz. I guess it is a personal preference. I tend to use what my indy and dealer recommends and both recommend Chevron. Some say it doesn't make a difference but I don't know since I tend to be a creature of habit and a pretty expensive one these days at $4.37 a gallon for premium. Who knows what it will be Friday when I put gas in

I have used nothing but Chevron in all of my cars for the past 8 years. One reason is that they never went to ethanol additives, at least where I travel, which are parts of 3 states. Google "Top Tier Gasolines" and you will see a list of what the automobile manufacturers consider to be the top brands. I think you should be O.K. by using any of those.

To supplement Debbi's comment, MB only recommends 2 gasoline additives, or fuel system cleaners. One is their dealer-only brand, and the other is Chevron Techron Concentrate.

Same here, 100% Chevron and always on a Chevron credit card for an audit trail.

We even have a couple of stations offering a 2 or 3 cent/gallon discount if we use the Chevron credit card. These days, every few pennies helps.

I also refill with Chevron gas whenever I can. BTW, the Chevron stations in my area sell Octane 92 fuel at about the same price of Octane 91 fuel sold by the other major brands most of the time. I know that under normal circumstances it means no difference to the car though.
