When refuelling

When you refuel, it is important that the pump nozzle is inserted past the double seal before starting to fill fuel. The instructions below show how to do this.

Open the fuel filler flap.

Insert the pump nozzle in the fuel filler opening. Make sure you fully insert the nozzle in the filler pipe so that it pushes past the double seal in the pipe.

Do not overfill the tank but fill until the pump nozzle cuts out.

The tank is full.
