Useable tank capacity:

- About 11 gallons (50 litres) for petrol versions;

- 46 litres (10.12 gallons) approximately for the Diesel versions.

With the vehicle unlocked, to open cover 1, press area A then release. The cover 1 opens slightly.

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 information on “Filling with fuel”.

To close it, press on the fuel filler flap by hand, as far as it will go.

Fuel grade

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.

Fuel types that conform to European standards with which the engines of vehicles sold in Europe are compatible: refer to the table ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS.

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.

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 reagent to the fuel - otherwise you risk damaging the engine . If you wish to add an additive to the fuel, use a product approved by our Technical Department.

Consult an approved dealer.

Diesel version

It is essential to use diesel fuel that conforms with the information given on the label inside cover 1.

Petrol version

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.

After filling, check that the cap and cover are closed.

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.

Special case

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.

Petrol versions

Using leaded petrol will damage the antipollution system and may lead to a loss of warranty.

To ensure that the fuel tank is not filled with leaded petrol, the fuel tank filler neck contains a restrictor fitted with a foolproof system which only allows the nozzle for unleaded petrol to be used (at the pump).

To fill up with fuel, the engine must be stopped (and not only on standby in the case of vehicles equipped with the STOP and START function): you must switch off the ignition STARTING, STOPPING THE ENGINE: vehicle with key, STARTING, STOPPING THE ENGINE: vehicle with card.

Fire hazard.

Running out of fuel on diesel versions

Vehicles with key/remote control

- Set the ignition key to “On” position ON 2 IGNITION SWITCH: vehicle with key and wait a few minutes before starting to enable the fuel circuit to be primed;

- turn the key to position START 3. If the engine does not start, repeat the procedure;

- If the engine does not start after several attempts, contact an approved dealer.

Vehicles with card

With the card in the passenger compartment, press the start button 4 without pressing any of the pedals. Wait a few minutes before starting.

This will enable the fuel circuit to be primed. If the engine does not start, repeat the procedure.

If the engine does not start after several attempts, please contact an authorised dealer.

No modifications whatsoever are permitted on any part of the fuel supply system (electronic units, wiring, fuel circuit, injectors, protective covers, etc.) as this may be dangerous (unless undertaken by qualified Network personnel).

Persistent fuel odour

If you notice a persistent fuel odour you should:

- stop the vehicle as soon as traffic conditions allow and switch off the ignition;

- switch on the hazard warning lights and ask your passengers to leave the vehicle and stay clear of the traffic;

Useable capacity of the LPG tank: approximately 7.04 gallons (32 litres).

Filling up with LPG

Apply the parking brake, stop the engine, switch off the ignition and switch off the lights.

Always respect the safety instructions given at filling stations.

Depending on the country, before refilling you must screw the filling adapter 5 onto the LPG filler end piece.

It is always advisable to completely fill the tank.

When the pump stops delivering LPG, or when the pump flow reduces significantly, the maximum LPG level has been reached.

At this point, do not attempt to carry on filling.

Filling stations without self-service

If the service station personnel carry out the LPG filling procedure, you must give them the adapter 5.

IMPORTANT: LPG filling adapter 5

Depending on the country, the use of a specific adapter is required for LPG filling.

The filling adapter 5 is provided in a pouch in the glove box. It may or may not be present in the vehicle, depending in which country the vehicle was sold.

Before driving the vehicle to another country, it is essential to consult an approved dealer to find out the type of adapter to use if necessary.

If you exceed the LPG tank capacity when topping-up, please go to an accredited garage or an authorised dealer to check the automatic filler device.

Filling stations with self-service

We recommend that you wear gloves when handling the LPG pistol.

Open the tank flap of your vehicle and unscrew the cap 6 from the end piece of the LPG filler 7.

Carefully follow the instructions shown on LPG distributors. These explain how to fill up properly.

Depending on the type of station, it may be necessary to perform press and hold the station button before filling will start.

When the pump stops supplying LPG, or when the pump flow reduces significantly, the maximum tank level has been reached.

The filling will stop as soon as you release the button. Release the stop lever (a small amount of gas may be released), lift the pistol and place it on the distributor.

Replace the cap 6 to avoid any water or foreign bodies from entering the system.
