Most people seem to recommend branded gasolines rather than the off-brands you find at convenience stores and Sam's club. The brands have more detergents than the others, and should keep your induction system cleaner.
The only gasoline additive recommended by Mercedes is Techron which is a Chevron product. While MB doesn't recommend a gas brand, I suppose you could conclude they prefer Chevron since that gasoline uses Techron as a detergent.
I like Shell, but that is mostly because there are a number of Shell retailers in my usual paths to places.
