MECANISMO PASIVO CONTRA REPOSTAJE INCORRECTO DIÉSEL

WARNING

If the driver attempts to refuel the vehicle when the passive misfuelling protection device is activated, it may cause fuel to be discharged from the filler neck, which can cause fuel spillage. Fuel spillage could potentially lead to an accident, resulting in serious injury.

NOTES

The passive misfuelling protection device may not activate if an incorrect petrol fuel pump's nozzle is only partially inserted.

NOTES

The driver is responsible for filling the vehicle with the correct fuel. The passive misfuelling protection device only reduces the risk of filling the vehicle with an incorrect fuel.

NOTES

The passive misfuelling protection device may be activated by some fuel can filler spouts and older fuel pumps.

Vehicles with a diesel engine may have a passive misfuelling protection device incorporated into the fuel filler neck.

Using a smaller diameter, petrol fuel pump nozzle activates the passive misfuelling protection device. The vehicle's fuel filler neck is then closed to prevent the wrong fuel from being added to the fuel tank. The yellow passive misfuelling protection device is visible in the fuel filler neck when activated. In this event, use the reset tool to deactivate the misfuelling protection device. The reset tool is stored in the vehicle's tool kit.

Use the following reset tool instructions:

  1. Insert the reset tool, with the teeth uppermost, as far as it will go into the fuel filler neck.

  2. Push down on the top of the reset tool to engage the teeth.

    CAUTION

    Do not twist the device once the teeth have engaged. Doing so may damage the teeth.

  3. Slowly pull the tool out of the fuel filler neck to reset the passive misfuelling protection device.

After use, replace the reset tool in the vehicle's tool kit.

NOTES

When reset, the yellow passive misfuelling protection device is no longer visible in the vehicle's fuel filler neck.

NOTES

Misfuelling devices are dependent on the market specification.
