Current fuel consumption - When the vehicle is stationary or moving slowly,

the fuel consumption is displayed in l/h (in models in some countries the fol-

lowing appears --,- km/l). With G-TEC vehicles the current consumption of the

fuel currently being used is displayed ( with regards to a stationary or slow

moving vehicle, the natural gas consumption is displayed in kg/h).
Average fuel consumption - Is calculated continuously since the last clearing

of the memory. After erasing the memory, no data will appear for the first 300

m driven. With G-TEC vehicles, the average consumption of fuel currently be-

ing used is displayed.
Natural gas quality - The details of the quality of natural gas are displayed as a

percentage of between 70% to 100%. The higher the value of natural gas, the

lower is the consumption.
Range - Drive distance in km which can be covered with the existing tank ca-

pacity and with the same driving style. If you drive more efficiently this value

can increase. With G-TEC vehicles the following details are displayed - Range

with natural gas / petrol.
Distance driven - Distance driven since the memory was last cleared.
Total distance travelled - Odometer
Average speed - Value constantly recalculated, for distance since last clearing

the memory. After erasing the memory, no data will appear for the first 300 m

driven.
