aDvICe: antipollution, fuel economy and driving
exhaust gas monitoring
system
The exhaust gas monitoring system will
detect any operating faults in the vehi-
cle's antipollution system.
If this system malfunctions, toxic sub-
stances may be released into the at-
mosphere or damage may occur.
Ä
This warning light on the in-
strument panel will indicate if
there are any faults in the system:
This lights up when the ignition is
switched on and goes out when the
engine is started.
– If it lights up continuously, consult an
approved Dealer as soon as possi-
ble;
– if it flashes, reduce the engine speed
until the light stops flashing. Contact
your approved dealer as soon as
possible.

Driving
– Drive carefully for the first few miles
until the engine reaches its normal
operating temperature, rather than
let it warm up while the vehicle is sta-
tionary.
– Speed is expensive.
– Sporty driving uses a lot of fuel: drive
with a light right foot.
– Do not overrev the engine in the in-
termediate gears.
Always use the highest gear possi-
ble without labouring the engine.
On versions with an automatic gear-
box, it is preferable to keep the gear
lever in position D.
– Avoid sudden acceleration.
– Brake as little as possible. If you an-
ticipate an obstacle or bend in ad-
vance, you may then simply release
the accelerator pedal.
– Do not try to maintain the same
speed up a hill, accelerate no more
than you would on the level. Keep
your foot in the same position on the
accelerator pedal.
– Double declutching and accelerating
before switching off are unnecessary
in modern vehicles.
– Bad weather, flooded roads:
Do not drive through floods
if the water is above the
lower edge of the wheel
rims.
obstructions to the driver
On the driver's side, only
use mats adapted to the ve-
hicle that attach to the pre-
installed parts, and regularly check
their mounting. Do not place several
mats on top of each other.
