Driving and operating

Activation

The lane departure warning system is

activated by pressing ). The

illuminated LED in the button

indicates that the system is switched

on. When control indicator ) in the

instrument cluster illuminates green,

the system is ready to operate.
The system is only operable at

vehicle speeds above 56 km/h and if

lane markings are available.
When the system recognises an

unintended lane change, control

indicator ) changes to yellow and

flashes. Simultaneously a chime

sound is activated.

Deactivation

The system is deactivated by

pressing ), LED in the button

extinguishes.
At speeds below 56 km/h the system

is inoperable.

Fault

The lane departure warning system

may not operate properly when:

● The windscreen is not clean.
● There are adverse environmental

conditions e.g. heavy rain, snow,

direct sunlight or shadows.

The system can not operate when no

lane marking is detected.

Fuel

Fuel for petrol engines

Only use unleaded fuel that complies

with European standard EN 228 or

equivalent.
The engine is capable of running with

fuel that contains up to 10% ethanol

(e.g. named E10).
Use fuel with the recommended

octane rating. A lower octane rating

can reduce engine power and torque

and slightly increases fuel

consumption.

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

Driving and operating

151

Caution

Do not use fuel or fuel additives

that contain metallic compounds

such as manganese-based

additives. This may cause engine

damage.

Caution

Use of fuel that does not comply to

EN 228 or equivalent can lead to

deposits or engine damage.

Caution

Use of fuel with a lower octane

rating than the lowest possible

rating could lead to uncontrolled

combustion and engine damage.

The engine-specific requirements

regarding octane rating are given in

the engine data overview 3 210. A

country-specific label at the fuel filler

flap can supersede the requirement.

Fuel additive

Fuel should contain detergent

additives that help prevent engine

and fuel system deposits from

forming. Clean fuel injectors and

intake valves will allow the emission

control system to work properly. In

certain countries fuel does not

contain sufficient quantities of

additive to keep fuel injectors and

intake valves clean. In these

countries a fuel additive is required for

some engines to make up for this lack

of detergency. Only use fuel additive

approved for the vehicle.
Adding fuel additive to the filled fuel

tank is required at least every 15,000

km or after one year, whichever

occurs first. For further information,

contact your workshop.

Prohibited fuels

Fuels containing oxygenates such as

ethers and ethanol, as well as

reformulated fuel, are available in

some cities. If these fuels comply with

the previously described

specification, then they are

acceptable to use. However, E85

(85% ethanol) and other fuels

containing more than 15% ethanol

must be used only in FlexFuel

vehicles.

Caution

Do not use fuel containing

methanol. It can corrode metal

parts in the fuel system and also

damage plastic and rubber parts.

This damage would not be

covered by the vehicle warranty.

Some fuels, mainly high octane

racing fuels, can contain an octane

enhancing additive called

methylcyclopentadienyl manganese

tricarbonyl (MMT). Do not use fuels or

fuel additives with MMT as they can

reduce spark plug life and affect

emission control system

performance. The malfunction

indicator light Z may illuminate 3 79.

If this occurs, seek the assistance of

a workshop.

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

152

Driving and operating

Fuel for liquid gas operation

Liquid gas is known as LPG

(Liquefied Petroleum Gas) or under

its French name GPL (Gaz de Pétrole

Liquéfié). LPG is also known as

Autogas.
LPG consists mainly of propane and

butane. The octane rating is between

105 and 115, depending on the

butane proportion. LPG is stored

liquid at around 5-10 bar pressure.
The boiling point depends on the

pressure and mixing ratio. At ambient

pressure, it is between -42 °C (pure

propane) and -0.5 °C (pure butane).

Caution

The system works at an ambient

temperature of approx. -8 °C to

100 °C.

Full function of the LPG system can

only be guaranteed with liquid gas

which complies with the minimum

requirements of DIN EN 589.
Fuel selector 3 73.

Refuelling

9 Danger

Before refuelling, switch off

ignition and any external heaters

with combustion chambers.
Follow the operating and safety

instructions of the filling station

when refuelling.

9 Danger

Fuel is flammable and explosive.

No smoking. No naked flames or

sparks.
If you can smell fuel in your

vehicle, have the cause of this

remedied immediately by a

workshop.

A label with symbols at the fuel filler

flap is indicating the allowed fuel

types. In Europe the pump nozzles of

the filling stations are marked with

these symbols. Refuel only the

allowed fuel type.

Caution

In case of misfuelling, do not

switch on ignition.

Fuel filler flap is located at right rear

side of the vehicle.
