Fuel filler flap

WARNINGS:
Take care when refuelling to avoid spilling any residual fuel from the fuel nozzle.

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.

CAUTION:
If you use a high pressure spray to wash your vehicle, only spray the fuel filler flap briefly from a distance not less than 20 centimetres (8 inches).

Note: Central locking also locks and unlocks the fuel filler flap. See Locking and unlocking.
