Information on identification label: Engine identification
1 : manufacturer The technical data tables show the
2 : type approval number engine identifier code. Engine data
3 : vehicle identification number 3 268.
4 : permissible gross vehicle weight
rating in kg To identify the respective engine,
5 : permissible gross train weight refer to the engine power in the EEC
in kg Certificate of Conformity provided
6 : maximum permissible front axle with your vehicle or other national
load in kg registration documents.
7 : maximum permissible rear axle
load in kg
8 : vehicle-specific or country-
specific data
The combined total of front and rear
axle loads must not exceed the
permissible gross vehicle weight. For
example, if the front axle is bearing its
maximum permissible load, the rear
axle can only bear a load that is equal
to the gross vehicle weight minus the
front axle load.
The technical data is determined in
accordance with European
Community standards. We reserve
