Refueling Fires/ Cellphones
The RF energy from a cellphone can cause a sparking on bare metal, much like aluminum foil in a microwave oven. The spark could ignite gasoline fumes present while refuling.
Refueling Fires/ Static Electricity
Static discharge from your body can ignite gasoline fumes present when you get back out of the vehicle and touch the fuel nozzle.
Fuel tank capacity is listed under "Capacities". Porsche does not recommend the use of fuel additives.
Fuel is highly flammable and harmful to health.
If you lose the tank cap, you must replace it only with an original part to reduce the possibility of a fire in the event of a collision.
Risk of damage to decorative film as a result of contact with fuel.
Decorative film can fade if it comes into contact with fuel.
Your Porsche is equipped with catalytic converters and must use UNLEADED FUEL ONLY.
Your engine is designed to provide optimum performance and fuel economy using unleaded premium fuel with an octane rating of 98 RON (93 CLC or AKI). Porsche therefore recommends the use of these fuels in your vehicle.
Porsche also recognizes that these fuels may not always be available. Be assured that your vehicle will operate properly on unleaded premium fuels with octane numbers of at least 95 RON (90 CLC or AKI), since the engine's "Electronic Oktane™ knock control" will adapt the ignition timing, if necessary.
If fuels of less than 95 RON (90 CLC or AKI) are used however, this could reduce performance and increase fuel consumption.
It is important to observe the regular service intervals, and particularly the oil change intervals, specified in the "Maintenance" booklet.
The use of UNLEADED FUEL ONLY is critically important to the life of the catalytic converters. Deposits from leaded fuels will ruin the converters and make it ineffective as an emission control device.
Cars with catalytic converters have a smaller fuel tank opening, and gas station pumps have smaller nozzles. This will prevent accidental pumping of leaded fuel into cars with catalytic converters.
Unleaded fuels may not be available outside the continental U.S. and Canada. Therefore, we recommend you do not take your car to areas or countries where unleaded fuel may not be available.
