w123 280ce, 1985 C reg

hi, just got this car and wondering if the engine 2.8 m110 inj is ok on unleaded, or does it need an additive . last owner didnt know. this is merc number 7 previous mercs all w123 240d sal and est, 200 sal,230 estate, 230 sal, 220d sal lud ex german taxi, 300d sal. also a 230 g wagen , should have kept that one! so like the guy with the donkey number 7 i think i will stick with this one, always wanted a coupe just had to wait to get one at a reasonable price. i am going to put it on lpg, i have been told i need a closed loop mixer system, any idea,s i live in the north east 17 mls from whitby if you know of anyone in the area. silver bill does spares on ebay now formerly Blue Star Enterprises in Billingham. Any help or info on spares and repairs in the area please contact me I will need a new exhaust soon a stainless steel is a bit to steep for now so any ideas welcome.
