Opening/closing the fuel filler flap and refuelling

Updated 1/14/2020

The fuel tank is fitted with a coverless fuel filler system.

Opening/closing the fuel filler flap

The car must be unlocked for the fuel filler flap to be opened.

In the driver display, the arrow next to the tank symbol indicates which side of the car the fuel filler flap is located.

Open the fuel filler flap with a gentle press on the rear of the flap.

After refuelling is finished - close the flap with a gentle press.

Refuelling with fuel pump

Refuelling is carried out as follows.

Open the fuel filler flap.

Insert the pump nozzle in the fuel filler opening. Take care to insert the nozzle properly into the filler pipe. The filler pipe consists of two opening flaps. The nozzle must be pushed past both flaps before refuelling is started.

Do not overfill the tank but fill until the pump nozzle cuts out the first time.

The tank is full.

Note

Excess fuel in the tank can overflow in hot weather.

Filling with a fuel can

Only applies to cars with diesel engine.

When filling with a fuel can, use the funnel located under the floor hatch in the cargo area.

Open the fuel filler flap.

Insert the funnel in the fuel filler opening. Make sure you insert the funnel fully into the fuel filler pipe so that it passes the two flaps in the pipe.

Label

Never use the fuel-driven heater when the car is in a filling station area.
