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

(CNG) in the tank depending on the

current operation mode.
The arrow indicates the vehicle side

where the fuel filler flap is located.
For bi-fuel engines, the Driver

Information Centre displays the fuel l

evel for the fuel type which is currently

not in operation. The fuel level for the

fuel type which is currently in

operation is shown in the fuel gauge.
Control indicator r illuminates if the

fuel quantity is low.

For bi-fuel engines: In petrol mode,

the control indicator r illuminates

before the needle reaches the red

area.
Refuel immediately if r flashes.
Never run the fuel tank dry.
Because of the fuel remaining in the

tank, the top-up quantity may be less

than the specified fuel tank capacity.

Fuel selector

LED

flashes

: fuel mode transition in

process, flashing stops

if transition is completed

Switching is not possible at high loads

(e.g. powerful acceleration, driving at

full throttle).
If the selector switch is operated

several times within a short time, a

switchover inhibitor is activated. The

engine remains in the current

operating mode. The inhibitor

remains active until the ignition is

switched off.
A slight loss of power and torque can

be expected during petrol operation.

You must therefore adapt your driving

style, e.g. during overtaking

manoeuvres and high vehicle loads

(e.g. towing loads) accordingly.

The vehicle consumes petrol when

starting the engine and even when in

certain natural gas operating modes.

The petrol consumption in natural gas

operating mode can vary depending

on driving behaviour (e.g. high load or

towing). In case of a low fuel level, a

corresponding message is displayed

as a reminder to refuel.

Note

Always ensure that there is enough

petrol in the tank.

Fuel for natural gas operation 3 221.

Forced fuel mode transition

Natural gas tank is running low

As soon as the natural gas tank is

empty, petrol operation is

automatically engaged. Manually

engaging natural gas operation mode

is not possible until natural gas

refuelling is detected.
Before the petrol fuel system runs

empty, a warning message will be

displayed and cannot be dismissed.

Petrol tank is running low while

natural gas is available

If the remaining petrol level in the tank

falls below a certain level, natural gas

operation is automatically engaged

provided there is a sufficient natural

gas level in the tank. Manually

engaging petrol operation mode is not

possible.
Before both fuel systems run empty,

a warning message will be displayed

and cannot be dismissed.

Service display

The engine oil life system informs

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,

Change Engine Oil Soon appears in

the Driver Information Centre. Have

engine oil and filter changed by a

workshop within one week or

500 km, whichever occurs first.
