Fuel grades

Petrol models

Unleaded gasoline, EN 228 is not worse than AI-95 (by a research method) / A85 (by 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 than AI-91/A-82.5, - engine capacity at the same time can decrease, and fuel consumption to increase. Avoid the 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 you make replacement of motive oil through each 7500 km of a run from above.

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

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 up to -25 °C.

Do not add gasoline to diesel fuel!

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

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

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

The share of content of additive taking into account temperature of external air has to be minimum.

The kerosene share in mix should not exceed 50%!

Additives are added to fuel during gas station before there was its solidification to release of paraffin. Faults owing to release of paraffin can be rectified only by heating of all power supply system.

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

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