When engine oil temperatures are low, the display --- ºF (--- ºC) appears in the instrument cluster.

The engine has reached its operating temperature when the engine oil temperature is between 176 ºF (80 ºC) and 248 ºF (120 ºC) under normal driving conditions.

Short-term memory and long-term memory

The short-term memory collects driving information from the time the ignition is switched on until it is switched off. If you continue driving within two hours after switching the ignition off, the new values will be included when calculating the current trip information.

Unlike the short-term memory, the long-term memory is not erased automatically. You can select the time period for evaluating trip information yourself.

Average consumption

The current consumption can be shown using a bar graph. The average consumption stored in the short-term memory is also displayed. If the bar is green, your vehicle is saving fuel (for example, using recuperation).

Energy consumers

The Energy consumers view lists other equipment that is currently affecting fuel consumption.

The display shows up to three equipment items. The equipment using the most power is listed first. If more than three items using power are switched on, the equipment that is currently using the most power is displayed. A gauge also shows the current total consumption of all other equipment.


The date, time of day, and time and date format can be set.
