Fuel - petrol

Updated 7/23/2018

Petrol is used as fuel.

Petrol must fulfil the EN 228 standard. Most engines can be run with octane ratings of 95 and 98 RON. Only in exceptional cases should 91 RON be used.

  • 95 RON can be used for normal driving.
  • 98 RON is recommended for optimum performance and minimum fuel consumption.

When driving in temperatures above +38 °C, fuel with the highest possible octane rating is recommended for optimum performance and fuel economy.

Important

  • Always refuel with unleaded petrol so as not to damage the catalytic converter.
  • Do not use additives not recommended by Volvo.
