I'm sure the single cam sixes will run fine on mid-grade, but for the 104 twin cam six, I'd stick with premuim. I run Sunoco Ultra 94 in my 300E and in return I get excellent fuel economy and smooth running. You definitely can't run anything lower than premium in a V8, and from what I was told when I worked at the dealer, Mercedes recommends premuim to keep the cats and everything clean and in top condition. I tried running mid-grade in my DeLorean but found it to run horrible. It seems to like Sunoco 94 like the rest. Just my $0.02.
