just bought my first mercedes benz c300

This Mercedes Benz C 300 Luxury Sedan is awesome. This is my first and the comfort is beyond what I ever expected.

My cost was 36,900 for C 300 Luxury Sedan (2009) with option package 1
(heated seats, sirius radio, bluetooth, etc.) black w/black interior. Also,
i'm located in midwest and car had to be transported here from Virginia.

the car is simply the most gorgeous car i have ever seen.

If anyone has an opinion on price that would be great and also if u can use Ethanol 85 gas and/or regular gas.

thank you again. mt9

mt9, congratulations on your MB and welcome to the forum. We can only get fuel that is labelled "Contains up to 10% Ethanol" and mine runs fine on that. I don't know about the E85 but look in your owner's manual. The octane you should use will be on a label on the fuel filler cap and also in the manual.

The car can't use E85. If you find 100% real gasoline, then go for it. If not, the E10 junk will have to do. If you have to use E10, Make sure to purchase Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment and add it to your tank every time you fill up. This will help make sure your fuel lines don't rot from the inside out and also help keep your engine clean and running smooth.
