Types and volumes of the applied lubricants and liquids

Do not allow children to operational materials. At their hit in the child's organism immediately see a doctor.

Apply materials exclusively recommended MB. They are brought in Instructions of Mercedes-Benz. On this matter you can receive the reference on HUNDRED. Application of the allowed MB of operational materials is a component of guarantee certificates.

Water in mix with summer "S" or winter "W" a concentrate of MB

Add stekloomyvayushchy means to water during the whole year for prevention of formation of stains. Choose composition of mix according to temperature of external air. Prepare mix in a separate vessel. Thanks to existence of heating of windscreen washer the concentration of mix providing frost resistance to -10 °C is sufficient.


Fuel tank, l

  • models without cover for skis

Petrol models

Unleaded gasoline: AI-95/A-85 is not worse, on the S600 models - AI-98 is not worse. Perhaps temporary use of unleaded gasoline is not worse than AI-91/A-82.5. At the same time engine capacity will decrease a little, at increase in fuel consumption

Do not apply additive to fuel. They can result in the increased wear or damage of the engine.

Diesel models

Summer and winter diesel fuel

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

When using diesel fuel about the content of sulfur over 0.5%, you make replacement of motive oil each 7500 km.

Winter fuel, provides normal working capacity to -20 °C.

Thanks to preliminary heating of fuel at the included system of heating of the car, the car on winter diesel fuel can be operated, as a rule, without refusals at a temperature 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 a temperature 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.

Composition of mix:

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

You can receive the certificate of the allowed funds for improvement of fluidity for any HUNDRED Mercedes-Benzs.

Additive share taking into account temperature of external air has to be minimum.

The kerosene share in mix has to make no more than 50%.

Add additive to diesel fuel before loss of property of fluidity of diesel fuel owing to release of paraffin. Faults owing to release of paraffin can be rectified only heating of all power supply system.

You carry out mixing of diesel fuel with kerosene only in the fuel tank. For this purpose in a tank at first fill in kerosene, and then add diesel fuel.

After that the engine has to work some time in order that mix was distributed on all power supply system.
