2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sport: Flex fuel capable
December 06, 2007
Who says GM is the only one promoting E85? Our new Mercedes-Benz C300 long termer asks for either premium unleaded or E85 ethanol. It even has a yellow fuel filler cap like our old Tahoe.
This struck me as odd given that I havenít heard a word about the C300ís flex fuel capability despite sitting through numerous press briefings on the latest C-Class.It's an interesting alternative given Mercedes' requirement for premium gasoline.
Then again, with the nearest ethanol station over hundred miles away, our C300's ability to burn it won't matter much. A closer station is expected to open up soon. Until then, well be paying for the top shelf stuff to keep our new Benz running clean.
