If the vehicle is inadvertently filled with the wrong fuel, e.g., petrol instead of diesel, do not attempt to start the engine. Contact a retailer/authorised repairer immediately.


The vehicle manufacturer cannot accept any responsibility for any damage caused by running the vehicle with an incorrect fuel.


Diesel engines are capable of running with up to a 7% blend of bio-diesel, in accordance with the European standard EN590. Using a higher blend of bio-diesel is not recommended.


High quality fuel promotes a longer life for the engine components. Lower grade fuel contains higher levels of sulphur, which can damage engine components. If low quality fuel is used, light coloured smoke may be evident at the exhaust.


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, or an equivalent.

The quality and specification of diesel fuels may vary significantly, depending on the geographical location. Using premium fuel, or the highest quality of available fuel, is recommended.

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