Post C280 Premium Fuel

Is it really imperative to use only premium unleaded fuel?

If you can't afford the fuel, sell the car to someone who can. Mercedes engines are designed to run on premium fuel ONLY. It is not recommend, it is required.

No be to be a snobbish jerk here. I was just asking a question and seeking opinions of long term owners. You know nothing about me of my finances. Try not assuming information that you know nothing about!

don't listen to powerseller, he is an ass. Use premium, it's not much more and you will get slightly better mileage.

I would only put in premium. I wouldn't want engine knock by using regular unleaded.. Not to mention lower performance.
