Fuel and Refueling


  • Do not attempt to start the engine if you have filled the fuel tank with the incorrect fuel. This could damage the engine. Have your vehicle checked by an authorized dealer immediately.
  • Do not use any kind of flames or heat near the fuel system. The fuel system is under pressure. There is a risk of injury if the fuel system is leaking.
  • If you use a high pressure spray to wash your vehicle, only spray the fuel filler flap briefly from a distance not less than 8 inches (200 millimeters).
  • We recommend that you wait at least 10 seconds before removing the fuel nozzle to allow any residual fuel to drain into the fuel tank.
  • Stop refueling after the fuel nozzle stops the second time. Additional fuel will fill the expansion space in the fuel tank which could lead to fuel overflowing. Fuel spillage could be hazardous to other road users.
  • Do not remove the fuel nozzle from its fully inserted position during the entire refueling process.

Note:Your vehicle does not have a fuel filler cap.


1. Press the flap to open it. Open the flap fully until it engages.


Note:When you insert the correct size fuel nozzle, a spring loaded inhibitor will open.

This helps to avoid filling up with the incorrect fuel.

2. Insert the fuel nozzle up to and including the first notch on the fuel nozzle A. Keep it resting on the cover of the fuel pipe opening.


3. Hold the fuel nozzle in position B during refueling. Holding the fuel nozzle in position A can affect the flow of fuel and shut off the fuel nozzle before the fuel tank is full.


4. Operate the fuel nozzle within the area shown.


5. Slightly raise the fuel nozzle to remove it.
