A certain overpressure may arise in the tank in the event of high outside temperatures. Open the cap slowly.

  • After refuelling - refit the cap and turn it until one or more clicking sounds are heard.

Filling up with fuel

Choose fuel that is approved for use in the car.

See information on approved fuels in the respective section on petrol and diesel.

Do not overfill the tank but stop refuelling when the pump nozzle cuts out the first time.


Overfilled fuel in the tank can overflow in hot weather.

Filling with a fuel can

Only applies to a car with diesel engine.

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

Make sure you insert the funnel's pipe firmly into the filler pipe. The filler pipe has an openable cover and the funnel's pipe must be slid past the cover before filling can begin.
