    Hi,

    I have got A190 petrol automatic (2001). I was wondering if i can use high octane RON97 or RON99 (Tesco Super Unleaded 99) instead of RON95 in it. As per manual it recommends minimum 95 RON but i was not sure if higher RON will cause any problem to engine.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome, do not waste your money on 98 ron, 95 is fine for anything other than an AMG
