1 Speedometer.

2 Fuel gauge. Please note that the fuel level indicator in the gauge moves from right to left as the amount of fuel in the tank decreases. The arrow indicates the side of the vehicle that the fuel filler door is on. See also the section on refueling beginning on page 266. See page 147 for more information on fuel level and consumption.

3 The tachometer shows engine speed in thousands of revolutions per minute (rpm).

Do not drive continuously with the needle in the red area of the gauge. The engine management system will automatically prevent excessively high engines speeds.

This will be noticeable as a pronounced unevenness in engine speed.
