Reserve quantity is being used   .
Fill the tank as soon as possible  .
  Vehicle in autogas mode.  
  Water in fuel in vehicles with a diesel engine. Switch off the engine and seek expert assistance   .

Several warning and indicator lamps will light up briefly as a functional check when the ignition is switched on. They will switch off after a few seconds.

Autogas engines

The yellow indicator lamp lights up when all the fuel except for the reserve fuel has been used up.

The green indicator lamp lights up when the vehicle is in autogas mode.

The green indicator lamp goes out if the vehicle is changed over to petrol mode automatically or manually.

Things to note: if the vehicle is parked for an extended period directly after refuelling, it is possible that the needle on the autogas gauge will not display exactly the same fuel level shown directly after refuelling when the vehicle is restarted. This does not necessarily indicate a leak in the system.

WARNING

Driving the vehicle when the fuel level is too low could lead to your vehicle breaking down in traffic, accidents and serious injuries.

NOTICE

The small arrow next to the petrol pump symbol   in the display instrument shows you the side of the vehicle on which the tank flap is located.
