I haven't seen the specs but Premium (91+) is typically recommended for any car with a turbocharged engine.

91 OCTANE CONFIRMED!

Watch this video VERY closely at the 2:23 mark and you will see a quick glimpse of the fuel filler door being opened on a USA CLA250. You can see the "OCTANE RATING 91" sticker on the inner side of the fuel filler door.

Thanks CEB, I get told that a lot! A little bit easier to spot if you watch the video directly in YouTube and switch to 720P resolution.

I live in the Seattle area and was really excited to also see in the video that the car is at Mercedes Benz of Bellevue (Barrier Motors). I called the dealership this morning (Monday, August 12th) and confirmed that they will have the car available for showroom demonstrations this week through August 16th, then the car will be gone. Guess where I'm going after work this evening! :D

Talk to Evan, and say that Alex sent you. He is very friendly and pretty knowledgeable about the car. :)

But it says in Page 347 "fuel grade except AMG vehicles". So what is the fuel grade for AMG vehicles then?
Actually, it says:

"Fuel grade (AMG vehicles)
Fuel grade (except AMG vehicles)"

Which is German for "Fuel grade (all vehicles)"

:D
