Disadvantages of the Mercedes M254 engine
- All units of the modular series are afraid of detonation, do not use low-octane gasoline.
- As before, the Camtronic system is considered a weak point in the design of engines in this series.
- Here direct fuel injection and valves will probably quickly become covered with soot.
