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

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

CAUTIONS:
Use diesel that meets the specification defined by EN 590, or the relevant national specification.

Note: We recommend that you use only high quality fuel.

Long-term storage

Most diesel fuels contain bio-diesel, it is recommended to fill the tank with purely mineral diesel (where available) or add an anti-oxidant prior to long-term storage of your vehicle exceeding two months. Your dealer can help you with a suitable anti-oxidant.
