Engine oil

  • Special high-quality multi-grade oil is put in at the factory. Always use suitable high-quality oil when topping up or changing the engine oil.

Checking the oil level

  • Oil levels must be checked at regular intervals, preferably when filling the tank and before a long journey.
  • The vehicle must be on a level surface when checking the oil level.
  • Pull the dipstick out, wipe with a clean cloth and re-insert.
  • Pull the dipstick out again and check the oil level using the markings on the dipstick as an indicator:
  • Oil must be topped up if it is reflected at the lowest level on the dipstick.
  • Oil can also be topped up if it is reflected at the mid-level on the dipstick.
  • Never let the oil level exceed the highest marking on the dipstick.

Topping up the engine oil

  • Unscrew the cap from oil filler opening in the cylinder head cover and pour oil in.
  • 500ml at a time.
  • Check the level in relation with the dipstick after every 500ml poured.
  • Do not spill oil onto hot engine components, as this poses a fire hazard.
  • Carefully close the filler cap and push the oil dipstick in as far as possible.
