72

Instruments and controls

Two trip odometer pages are

selectable for different trips.
Select menu ; by pressing Menu

on the stalk. Turn adjuster wheel on

the stalk and select ;1 or ;2.

Each trip odometer page can be reset

separately by pressing SET/CLR on

the stalk for a few seconds on the

respective menu.

Tachometer

Displays the engine speed.
Drive in a low engine speed range for

each gear as much as possible.

Caution

If the needle is in the red warning

zone, the maximum permitted

engine speed is exceeded. Engine

at risk.

Fuel gauge

Displays the fuel level or gas content

in the tank depending on the

operation mode.
Number of LEDs displayed shows the

level in the respective fuel tank. 8

LEDs means fuel tank is full.

During liquid gas operation, the level

in the gas tank is displayed.

Low fuel indication

One remaining LED illuminating white

indicates that the fuel level is low.
If the LED changes to red and Y

illuminates yellow, refuel the tank

soon.
If the LED illuminates red and Y

flashes yellow, refuel immediately.
Never run the fuel tank dry.
The arrow indicates the vehicle side

where the fuel filler flap is located.
Because of the fuel remaining in the

tank, the top-up quantity may be less

than the specified tank capacity.
During liquid gas operation, the

system automatically switches over to

petrol operation when gas tanks are

empty 3 73.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Instruments and controls

73

Fuel selector

Pressing LPG switches between

petrol and liquid gas operation as

soon as the required parameters

(coolant temperature, gas

temperature and minimum engine

speed) have been reached. The

requirements are usually fulfilled after

approx. 60 seconds (depending on

exterior temperature) and the first firm

press on the accelerator. The LED

status shows the current operating

mode.

LED off : petrol operation

LED

flashes

: checking conditions for

fuel transition to liquid

gas operation.

Illuminates if conditions

are fulfilled.

LED illu‐

minates

: liquid gas operation

LED

flashes

five

times

and

extin‐

guishes

: liquid gas tank is empty

or failure in liquid gas

system. A message is

displayed in the Driver

Information Centre.

The selected fuel mode is stored and

reactivated at the next ignition cycle,

if conditions allow.
As soon as the liquid gas tank is

empty, petrol operation is

automatically engaged until the

ignition is switched off.
When switching automatically

between petrol or gas operation, a

brief delay of engine tractive power

may be noticeable.
When petrol fuel tank is empty, the

engine will not start.

Every six months, run the petrol tank

down until control indicator Y

illuminates, then refuel. This helps

maintain fuel quality and system

function for petrol operation.
Fill the tank completely at regular

intervals to prevent corrosion in the

tank.

Faults and remedies

If gas mode is not possible, check

whether there is enough liquid gas or

petrol present for starting.
Due to extreme temperatures in

combination with the gas

composition, it may take slightly

longer before the system switches

from petrol to gas mode.
In extreme situations, the system may

also switch back to petrol mode if the

minimum requirements are not

fulfilled. If conditions allow, it might be

possible to manually switch back to

liquid gas operation.
Seek the assistance of a workshop in

the event of all other faults.

Instruments and controls

Caution

Repairs and adjustments may only

be made by trained specialists in

order to maintain the safety and

warranty on the LPG system.

Liquid gas is given a particular odour

(odorised) so that any leaks can be

detected easily.

9 Warning

If you smell gas in the vehicle or in

the immediate vicinity, switch to

petrol mode immediately. No

smoking. No naked flames or

ignition sources.

If the gas odour persists, do not start

the engine. Have the cause of the

fault remedied by a workshop.
When using underground car parks,

follow the instructions of the operator

and local laws.

Note

In the event of an accident, switch off

the ignition.

Caution

If engine coolant temperature is

too high, stop vehicle, switch off

engine. Danger to engine. Check

coolant level.

Service display

The engine oil life system lets you

know when to change the engine oil

and filter. Based on driving

conditions, the interval at which an

engine oil and filter change will be

indicated can vary considerably.
When the system has calculated that

engine oil life has been diminished, a

warning message appears in the

Driver Information Centre. Have

engine oil and filter changed by a

workshop within one week or

500 km, whichever occurs first.
This can be an additional engine oil

and filter change or part of a regular

service.
To display the remaining engine oil

life duration use the buttons on the

stalk:

Reset

Press SET/CLR on the stalk for

several seconds to reset. The

remaining engine oil life duration

menu must be active. Switch on

ignition, but not the engine.
The system must be reset every time

the engine oil is changed to ensure

proper functionality. Seek the

assistance of a workshop.

Next service

A message appears in the Driver

Information Centre, when

maintenance of the vehicle is
