I thought the same thing, see i got a pre owned 07 ml, and the salesman told me that i can use regular gas. Which was kind of fishy to me because hes the first person who told me to use regular gas. I was always told by friends and family and some research that its usually best to follow what the manual recommends. Im sure that regular gas would work but i feel like if i want my car to last long and treat me well, i have to give it the best of things. Especially with gas. I've also found out that the main benefits of using premium gas is improved gas mileage, cleaner engine, and optimum performance. One of my buddies always uses premium, and one time he let one of our friends drive his car and when they filled it up, the gas man mistakenly put regular in it. He told me that he noticed a difference in power. I didnt get to feel it because i was used to regular gas before i got the ML350. But like they say "take care of your car and itll take care of you".
EDIT: I think that the salesman told me to use regular gas because he thought that i would be discouraged from buying it if i knew that i had to spend money on gas...smh what a tool...i think i knew more about cars than that bloke did.
