Fuel filler flap

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

We recommend that you wait at least 10 seconds before removing the fuel pipe nozzle to allow any residual fuel to drain into the fuel tank.

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).

Press the flap to open it. Open the flap


Press the flap to open it. Open the flap fully until it engages.

When you insert the fuel pipe nozzle, a spring loaded inhibitor will open if the correct size nozzle is detected. This will prevent filling up with the wrong fuel.

Insert the fuel pipe nozzle up to the first


Insert the fuel pipe nozzle up to the first notch on the nozzle, and keep it in position on the fuel filler opening.
