oooops your right its low.......how wrong of me to asume the Mercedes dealer would have checked it 4 weeks ago during its B service costing me £590.....and no there are no leaks I can see

Many thanks

Lots of Mercedes!
its really strange, i have found all the models that use that green fluid, i.e all the W203's and on, seem to use a lot of fluid...
we have to top up on almost every newish mercedes we service..

That green fluid is called Pentosin and has a distinctive smell.

get the correct fluid from the main dealer, as other car service shops will try and sell you any thing
