Refueling the vehicle at a service station

P5-1507 Fuel filling

It is important to insert the pump's nozzle past both of the two flaps in the fuel filler pipe before beginning fueling.

Instructions for fueling:

Turn off the engine and open the fuel filler door.

Select a fuel approved for use in the vehicle. For more information on approved fuels, see the section on “Fuel”.

Insert the pump's nozzle into the fuel filler pipe's opening. There are two flaps just inside the fuel filler pipe and the pump's nozzle must push both of these flaps open before fuel can be added.

Avoid overfilling the tank. Do not press the handle on the filler nozzle again after it has initially stopped pumping.

The fuel tank is now filled.

Note

An over-full tank may overflow in hot weather.

Important

Avoid spilling gasoline during refueling. In addition to causing damage to the environment, gasolines containing alcohol can cause damage to painted surfaces, which may not be covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Refueling from a fuel container

When filling from a fuel container, use the funnel provided in a foam block under the floor hatch in the cargo compartment.

Open the fuel filler door.

Insert the funnel into the fuel filler pipe's opening. There are two flaps just inside the fuel filler pipe and the tube section of the funnel must push both of these flaps open before fuel can be added.
