When you refuel, it is important that the pump nozzle is inserted past the double seal before starting to fill fuel. The instructions and video tutorial below show how to do this.
Filling with fuel pump
Refuelling is carried out as follows:
Open the fuel filler flap.
Insert the pump nozzle in the fuel filler opening. Make sure you fully insert the nozzle in the filler pipe so that it pushes past the double seal in the pipe.
Do not overfill the tank but fill until the pump nozzle cuts out.
The tank is full.
The pump must be inserted past the double seal.
The filler pipe has two openable caps, and the nozzle must be inserted past both caps before filling begins.
Overfilled fuel in the tank can overflow in hot weather.
See the owner's manual for more information about refuelling.
