Fuel gauge
Digital fuel gauge

WARNING
If the fuel level is too low, this can result in an irregular fuel supply and “sputtering” or stalling of the engine, particularly when going uphill or downhill. This can
cause breakdowns in road traffic, accidents and serious or fatal injuries. The steering, all driver assistance systems and braking assistance systems will not
work if the engine cuts out due to fuel shortage or irregular fuel supply.
Make sure that the fuel tank is always sufficiently filled.
Always refill the fuel tank once it reaches a fill level of 1/4.
NOTICE
Irregular fuel supply can result in misfiring and unburnt fuel entering the exhaust system.
Never drive with a completely empty fuel tank.
The small arrow next to the fuel pump symbol on the fuel gauge indicates which side of the vehicle the fuel filler flap is on.
