petrol RON for W203 C230
Greetings and salam all,

Firstly I would like to copngratulate Brader Sham for successfuly organizing the C-CLass TT yesterday. I managed to meet the guys who had helped choosing the great car for me; Brader Rothman, Mabel, Feelgood, Ismaia, Sham and the rest of the guys. They were very generous with their advice and opinion

Nevertheless, I would like to ask the Kaki-Kakis here which petrol RON to use for W203 C230 Kompressor? Although articles have mentioned the usage of RON 95 , there are some articles and mechanics stressing to only use RON 97 for the betterment of the car in the long run.

Mind you, my car is a used,year 2005 and I bought it in UK.


Thanks guys!

Re: petrol RON for W203 C230
You CAN use RON95...No problems at all. But if you're so particular...use RON97.
(Only the AMG motors need 97>)

The 230 motor, be it the 2.5V6 or the 1.8 Kompressored one is NOT a highly strung performance motor. The 95 already provide enuff octane since the engines are NOT high compression engines anyways.

I understand the worries however...hence, for your peace of mind, if not anything (or the placebo syndrome whatever)...if you can afford it..run the 97.

Thank you Bro Rothman & Renngrun for your replies and advice. Btw, Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri and Maaf Zahir dan Batin to you all and fellow MyBenzers.

My work ( I guess, so do most of the guys here :)! ) requires me to be on duty whenever necessary. Hence, my concern for the proper care and maintenance of the car. Furthermore, I will be shifting work (still in Klang Valley) which takes me a longer drive to reach

I had returned to my hometown in the East Coast a week before the Hari Raya to feel the fasting atmosphere there. I took the opportunity to visit relatives; the elderly and the sick. Drove back to KL 2 days before Raya. It was my first time driving the Merc > 8 hours duration .

Nonetheless, I wish Malaysian drivers are more disciplined; I witnessed a few vehicle accidents on the road and lots of roadkills, chickens & cats

Don't know about your engine, but on the W207 (UK), this is the sticker pasted on the refueling flap which says min RON91



So, I'm not so worried about RON, but a little concerned about sulfur content, which is not stated at petrol stations.

Thank you guys for the replies. Indeed, it was a comfortable and relaxing journey to and fro. It's a very therapeutic tradition returning to the 'kampong'. Probably better than therapeutic shopping!

Fortunately, I didn't observe any monkeys as road traffic accident victims.

As for the RON petrol type, the sticker on my fuel flap just mention the usage of unleaded fuel only

On another matter, Messi's paint had a few stone chips due to the 'balik kampung' travel. Therefore, I was wondering where I can obtain the merc paint code no. 744 metallic silver for touch up? Or do they have a touch- up pen which can perform the task?

Appreciate fellow MyBenzers' time reading this message and giving your opinion and advice

Salam Doc Rothman,

Thank you for your very helpful and friendly advice. I really appreciate it
Nevertheless, do we still have to apply the lacquer after doing the touch-up?
It seems that the paint stick set is not that cheap to obtain
Otherwise, the other option for me is to obtain a bit of the paint supply from the car paint shop and just invest in a good quality small ink bottle
