Hi All. I bought a 2006 MC S automatic when it had 10,300 miles on it.
Now it has nearly 20 grand. The PO said she had always used 87 octane
with no problems. Soooo, I have continued using 87 octane with no
apparent problems. Recently I've had folks tell me to use 91+ octane.
Why?? Am I damaging anything by using the lower (and cheaper) 87
octane?? Thanks for your feedback.
