Opening/closing the fuel filler flap and refuelling

Updated 7/23/2018

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

Opening/closing the fuel filler flap

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

Press the button on the instrument panel.

Pressure equalisation of the fuel tank involves a certain delay in opening the flap. The message Fuel tankFuel lid is opening is shown in the driver display, and then Fuel tankReady for refuelling.

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.


Excess fuel in the tank can overflow in hot weather.


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