Question Need advice about Fuel

Hi Everyone
I have a 1993 MB E220, Fuel Injection, Automatic Gear, A/C.

I imported the car from Germany 7 months ago, I've been using Premium fuel. I found a way to translate the manual and it said that I should use UNLEADED Fuel.

Now, I started using unleaded fuel, but I was thinking should I use fuel injector cleaners, so, is this advisable?

And if yes, what good brands are available in the market?
Many thanks

PS: I don't notice any problems in my fuel system, I just want to do it from a maintenance point of view.

I might not understand the question but let me point out that all gas sold in the USA is unleaded; that includes regular and high test 87, 89, 91 and 93 octane. The only leaded gas you might find here would be on the racetrack.

I think Yoesef is from the Mid-East, so I don't know what the gas norm is there...

Sometime it is important for poster to give a location to aid in proper replies.. specially which side of the pond , anyway...

BG44K works pretty well to clean the fuel system. Costs about 18 bucks.

I'm sorry for not being specific. I'm in the United Arab Emirates.
I don't know exactly about the octane thing, but i shall check it.
But in principle, is it advisable to use the fuel injectors cleaners (as a gentelman here suggested using BG44K.

Many thanks

Ok, I managed to ask the gas station.
The fuel I used with my car was 97 Octane. The gas i'm using now is 99 octane (Unleaded).
So, is there an advice about using fuel system cleaners?

Most good high octane fuels now have detergents due to many cars being EFI.
I would be more concerned with changing out the fuel filter
and getting an OEM one, for sure..
