    One must assume this gives a whole new meaning to the term born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Now it is a MB pacifier.

    I don't know what the engine setting in the USA is but normally you wil have to use 95 until 98 octane on this engine. Check dealer or label in fuel door. 91 octane is way to low.

    Are you talking about Octane or RON? Since you're in Europe you're probably talking about 95-98 RON, not octane.

    Yes talking about R.O.N this means Research Octane Number. So octane number provided by test engine. it is also the octane nr of the fuel.

    Here in the USA we would use 93 octane at lower elevations and 91 at higher ones like where I live in Colorado.

    I guess I'm confused. So how is 91 octane too low, in your estimation, if you have to use 95 RON when 91 octane is about equal to 95 RON? Besides, I use 93 octane because the gas stations I go to only has either 87 or 93 octane, no 91 as required by MB in North America.

    Are not RON and octane just different ways of expressing the same absolute number, such as the way centigrade and Fahrenheit give you the same answer, just on a different scale?

    The best is to use 93 octane ( same as 98 RON in Europe) there is no difference only in the way of calculating the % of octane and anti knocking.
    AMG engine are preset for 93 but can take 91 , less power and fuel management will compensate automatic for this

    Yes, I agree with you which is why I don't understand the OP's concern about using 91 octane in the US being way too low. Not just low (even though it's not) but "way too low".
