Vehicles with a petrol engine require the use of premium unleaded fuel, with a minimum octane rating of 95 RON. Using the correct fuel specification helps to maintain the vehicle's performance, fuel economy, and driveability.

If premium unleaded fuel is not available, use unleaded fuel with a lower octane rating, down to a minimum of 91 RON. Using lower octane-rated fuel may reduce the engine's performance, increase fuel consumption, or cause an audible engine knock and other driveability problems.

CAUTION

Do not use fuels with an octane rating lower than 91 RON, as severe engine damage may occur.

NOTES

An occasional, light engine knock, experienced while accelerating or climbing hills, is acceptable.

Consult a retailer/authorised repairer if a heavy persistent engine knock is detected, even if using fuel to the recommended octane rating. Urgently consult a retailer/authorised repairer if an engine knock is detected while holding a steady speed on level roads. Failure to do so is misuse of the vehicle, which is not covered by the vehicle's warranty.

If in doubt, seek advice from a retailer/authorised repairer in the territory concerned.

Super Green Plus 98 RON unleaded fuel, where available, may be used as an alternative to the standard 95 RON unleaded fuel.
