ACTIVE DIESEL MISFUELING PROTECTION DEVICE

CAUTION

Do not force an incorrectly sized fuel pump nozzle into the filler neck. Forcing an incorrectly sized fuel pump nozzle into the filler neck may result in damage to the vehicle.

Vehicles with a diesel engine have an active misfueling protection device. A metal flap is visible in the fuel filler neck when the fuel filler cap is removed. The active misfueling protection device helps to prevent the fuel tank from being filled with the incorrect fuel, e.g., gasoline.

Automatic release occurs if a correctly sized, diesel fuel pump filler nozzle is inserted, fully and squarely, into the vehicle's fuel filler neck, as illustrated.

NOTES

To refuel with a fuel can, use the emergency funnel supplied with the vehicle. See RUNNING OUT OF FUEL.
