DIESEL ENGINED VEHICLES

CAUTION

If the fuel tank is inadvertently filled with petrol instead of diesel, do not attempt to start the engine. In this event, contact a retailer/authorised repairer immediately. Inadequate fuels may damage the fuel system and engine components.

NOTES

Any damage caused by running the vehicle with fuel other than that stipulated is not covered under warranty.

NOTES

If a diesel engine is difficult to start in extreme cold temperatures of -15°C or less, consult a retailer/authorised repairer for assistance.

Use only high quality diesel fuel, according to the European standard EN590:2013+A1:2017, WWFC 5 cat. 5 or equivalent.

CAUTION

Fuels containing a blend of up to 7% bio-diesel may be used, in accordance with the European standard EN590:2013+A1:2017. Using a higher blend of bio-diesel is not recommended. Inadequate fuels may damage the fuel system and engine components, or premature fuel filter blockage may occur.

The quality and specification of diesel fuel varies significantly, depending on geographical location. Using a premium fuel is recommended, or the highest quality of fuel available. High quality fuel promotes a longer life for the engine's components.

CAUTION

Lower grade fuel contains higher levels of sulphur, which is detrimental to the engine's components. If low quality fuel is used, light coloured smoke may be evident at the exhaust.

Prolonged use of additives is not recommended. Do not add paraffin or petrol to diesel fuels.
