Choosing the Right Fuel

Choosing the Right Fuel

Use only Regular Diesel with a pump cetane rating of 48 or higher. We recommend using Premium Diesel with a cetane rating of 55 or higher for optimal performance of your vehicle. Premium Diesel is recommended for severe duty usage, for example fully loaded or trailer tow.

The use of diesel with a cetane rating of 47 or lower could lead to engine damage that may not be covered by the vehicle Warranty. Some fuel stations offer fuels posted as Regular Diesel with a cetane rating below 48, particularly in high altitude areas. Fuels with cetane rating below 48 are not recommended.

Do not use any fuel other than those recommended because it could lead to engine damage that may not be covered by the vehicle Warranty.

Note: Use of any fuel other than those recommended can impair the emission control system and cause a loss of vehicle performance.

Do not use:

  • Gasoline.
  • Fuel with methanol.
  • Fuel containing metallic based additives, including manganese-based compounds.

Do not be concerned if the engine sometimes knocks lightly. However, if it knocks heavily under most driving conditions while you are using fuel with the recommended cetane rating, contact an authorized dealer to prevent any engine damage.
