Petrol types- 350

Whats everyone verdict on what type of petrol to put in a 350slk....

I have always used super unleaded in cars of this type. (98 Octane or above), but I get the impression that a lot of people use standard unleaded.

This is in the UK (not sure if that makes a difference).

We're talking in RON.

98 = 93

always 93. Also, I prefer the old Standard White Gas i.e. Amoco Ultimate. Although not sure if its still a white gas with BP's influence. Always was the cleanest gas you could buy
