Fuel quality - Diesel

Note: We recommend that you use only high quality fuel without additives or other engine treatments.

WARNING:
Do not mix diesel with oil, petrol or other liquids. This could cause a chemical reaction.

CAUTION:
Do not add kerosene, paraffin or petrol to diesel. This could cause damage to the fuel system.

Note: We do not recommend the prolonged use of additives intended to prevent fuel waxing.

Use diesel that meets the specification defined by EN 590, or equivalent.

You can use diesel that contains up to 5% RME (bio diesel).
