Useable tank capacity:
- Approximately 9.24 gallons (42 litres) for petrol versions;
- Approximately 8.58 gallons (39 litres) for diesel versions.
With the vehicle unlocked, to open cover 1, press area A then release. The cover 1 opens.
Use the cap holder 2 on the flap 1 during filling to hold the cap 3 in place.
For details on filling the fuel tank, refer to the section on “Filling with fuel”.
To close it, press on the fuel filler flap by hand, as far as it will go.
Filler cap: this is specific.
If you have to replace it, make sure it is identical to the original cap. Contact an approved Dealer.
Never place the cap near a source of heat or flame.
Do not wash the filler area with a high-pressure washer.
Use a high-grade fuel that complies with the legislation in force in each country and which must comply with the specifications given on the label on the cover 1. ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS.
After filling, check that the cap and cover are closed.
Do not mix even small amounts of petrol (unleaded or E85) with diesel.
Do not use ethanol-based fuel if your vehicle is not compatible with this fuel.
Do not add additive to the fuel (additive, reagent, etc.), you could damage the engine. If you wish to add an additive to the fuel, use a product approved by our Technical Department.
Consult an approved dealer.
It is essential to use diesel fuel that conforms with the information given on the label inside cover 1.
It is essential to use unleaded petrol. The octane rating (RON) must comply with the information given on the label on the cover 1. ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS.
Filling with fuel
With the ignition off, insert the nozzle and insert it fully before turning it on to fill the fuel tank (risk of splashing).
Keep the nozzle in this position throughout the entire filling operation.
When the pump cuts out automatically at the end of the filling procedure, a maximum of two further filling attempts may be made, as there must be sufficient space in the fuel tank to allow for expansion.
Make sure that no water enters the fuel tank during filling. The cover 1 and its surround must remain clean.
When the vehicle has been stopped for around three months, you must add fuel to prevent damage to the fuel pump.
To do this, with the ignition off, top-up at least 1.10 gallons (5 litres) then start the engine to operate the pump and renew the fuel in the circuit.
If it is not possible to add at least 1.10 gallons (5 litres) of fuel due to the fuel level in the tank, drive the vehicle until the tank has capacity.
Using leaded petrol will damage the antipollution system and may lead to a loss of warranty.
To ensure that the tank is not filled with leaded petrol, the fuel tank filler neck consists of a restrictor fitted with a safety system which only allows a nozzle for unleaded petrol to be used (at the pump).
Fuel types that conform to European standards with which the engines of vehicles sold in Europe are compatible: refer to the table ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS.
