A premier automotive status symbol and brand, all of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles for sale at our Washington, D.C. area Mercedes-Benz dealer are expertly engineered and execute flawless performance.

Enjoy Thrilling Performance On The Streets Near Washington, D.C. From Your Mercedes-Benz

Your Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicle is comprised of thousands of parts, all working together to deliver the quality performance, comfort, and safety you expect from this exceptional brand. In order to properly maintain your ride and keep it running like new for years to come, our Mercedes-Benz dealer serving Washington, D.C. recommends filling up your Mercedes-Benz vehicle with premium unleaded gasoline that is 91 octane or higher. Mercedes-Benz also recommends fueling your ride with top tier, low-sulfur unleaded gasoline the next time you’re at the pump, if available. This type of high-quality fuel contains additives that remove harmful carbon deposits and prevent buildup in the fuel system and critical engine parts, effectively extending the life of your engine!

Many Mercedes-Benz owner manuals warn against using gasoline that contains more than 10% ethanol and 3% methanol by volume as this can harm your luxury vehicle, however, drivers can still power their Mercedes-Benz with lower octane regular gasoline in an emergency. Take note that filling your Mercedes-Benz with a lower grade gas can decrease your vehicle’s performance levels and negatively impact fuel economy if used for extended periods of time, so take it slow until you can refuel with the proper type of gas.

Feel free to contact us at Mercedes-Benz of Alexandria for more information or if you have any questions about maximizing your Mercedes-Benz vehicle’s performance.
