It will be interesting to see what happens with this and see how long they last on the street...or dont last, more like I think
I think MB engineers can somewhat easily prepare for 91 AKI gas since it's roughly equivalent to euro 95 RON gas (which is readily available at the pump in Europe).
However, the biggie will be to make sure the engine holds together with "accidental" (but somehow repetitive...) fill ups with our wonderful 87 AKI gas .
