Subtract the additive
PULP is the best fuel for the W201 190E. It has the required octane for that engine, which would have been developed to run on the old leaded super. The Australian Institute of Petroleum says you should use an additive, but the Merc has an alloy cylinder head with cast-iron valve seat inserts that have probably been hardened. which means you could safely run it without an additive.

It's a loophole to allow enthusiasts to bring in classic and historic cars. Unfortunately, it has opened the door for people to import commercial quantities of cars that don't fit the definition of a classic car. Try a Mercedes-Benz specialist for details of the 190e.
