Fuel grades

Petrol models

Unleaded gasoline, EN 228 is not worse AI-95 (on a research method) / А85 (on a motor method).

Abuse of additives to fuel can result in premature wear of the engine!

It is temporarily possible to apply: usual unleaded gasoline is not worse AI-91/A-82.5, - engine capacity thus can decrease, and fuel consumption to increase. Avoid movement with full loading.

Diesel models

Summer and winter diesel fuel

Do not apply ship (Marine Diesel Fuel), boiler, etc. diesel fuels!

When using diesel fuel with raised (more than 0.5 %) the content of sulfur make replacement of impellent oil through each 7500 km of run from above.

Winter fuel provides normal operability of the engine at temperatures to - 20°С.

Thanks to preliminary heating of fuel at the included system of heating of salon trouble-free functioning of the engine is guaranteed at temperatures of external air to - 25°С.

Do not add gasoline to diesel fuel!

In case of application of summer diesel fuel, and also at temperatures of external air is lower - 15°С to fuel it is necessary to add certain, depending on temperature of external air quantity of means for fluidity or kerosene improvement (see the table).

Means for improvement of fluidity can be used also in a combination to kerosene.

The certificate of the allowed means for improvement of fluidity can be received on any HUNDRED Mercedes-Benzs.

The share of the maintenance of an additive taking into account temperature of external air should be minimum.

The share of kerosene in a mix should not exceed 50 %!

Additives are added to fuel during filling before there was its zagusteniye to paraffin allocation. Owing to allocation of paraffin it is possible to eliminate malfunctions only with a way of heating of all power supply system.

Mixing of diesel fuel with kerosene make only in a fuel tank, - at first in a tank kerosene is filled in, then diesel fuel is added. In summary it is necessary to allow to the engine to work for some time for mix distribution on all path of a power supply system.

Additives of kerosene lead to decrease in a point of ignition of diesel fuel owing to what fire danger of a mix increases! Observe the corresponding safety regulations!
