  • Patent number: 8602247
    Abstract: A collection device with a collection container and a plurality of conducting elements guided on the collection container is disposed in a fluid container for a motor vehicle. The conducting elements are preferably of one-piece construction together with a collection plate surrounding the collection container. Fluid that sloshes around in the fluid container is fed through the conducting elements and the collection plate to the collection container. This allows the minimum amount of fluid in the fluid container required for the proper operation of the motor vehicle to be kept particularly low.

    Abstract: An exhaust system includes at least one exhaust gas purification component, at least one exhaust line, at least one connecting device for connecting the exhaust system to an internal combustion engine of a motor vehicle and at least one fastening element for additionally fastening the exhaust system to the motor vehicle. The purification component can oscillate at a first resonance frequency range of less than 150 Hz in a fastened state. The purification component can oscillate due to vibrations of the engine at least when the engine is started or switched off. This, in particular, allows ash residues to be removed from a purification component during starting of the motor vehicle, so that maintenance expense for the purification component is reduced and effective operation thereof is possible over the long term. A motor vehicle having an exhaust system and a method for operating the motor vehicle are also provided.
