If engine running problems are apparent, have the cause checked immediately and repaired. Excess unburned fuel can otherwise enter the catalytic converter, leading to overheating and possibly causing a fire.

Use a filter when refueling from a fuel can.

Otherwise, the fuel lines and/or injection system could be blocked by particles from the fuel can.

gasoline with a specified minimum octane Only refuel with premium-grade unleaded gasoline with a specified minimum octane number of 91 (average value of 96 RON/ 86 MON).

You can find more information under “Fuel”, or by contacting an authorized Mercedes-Benz Service Center or visiting http://www.mbusa.com (USA only).
