I don't have that engine so I don't have specific experience. I don't think a tank of regular would do that. When mine had code 0302 or 0304 it was a bad coil one time, and bad plugs (I think the other time). There are also connectors between 3 of the coils and the plugs which people say go bad, but mine didn't seem bad. However, the multi cylinder misfire code kind of seems to point to something more general. Hopefully someone else has a better answer. Did you search on code 0300?

Code 0300 is Random cylinder misfire & 0303 is #3 misfire. I believe,it may be coil issue,MAF Sensor &/or ???....Checking on BenzWorld past posts related to C280 Rough Idle,seems to be common MAF Sensor problem with C280....I hope members give some more input before I start process of elimination to correct the Rough Idle & Code problem............Thanks.
