Refueling fire risk

  • Fire, open flame and smoking are prohibited when handling fuel.

Fuel vapors and skin contact
Fuel and fuel vapors are hazardous to health.

  • Avoid contact with skin or clothing, since injury to your skin may occur.
  • Do not inhale fuel vapors, since they may make you ill and possibly cause death if inhalation is prolonged and occurs in a closed space.

To prevent damage to the emission control system and engine:

  • Never drive the tank dry.
  • Avoid high cornering speeds after the warning lights have come on.

  • Please see the chapter "FUEL ECONOMY" on page 199.

Check engine warning light
If the warning lights in the instrument panel come on and remain on while driving, it suggests:

  1. a potential engine control problem and the need for system service or
  2. an improperly fastened tank cap or refueling with engine running.

It is important that the service intervals, particularly the oil change intervals, are observed in accordance with the specifications in the "Maintenance" booklet.


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 refeuling.

  • Do not use a cellphone while pumping gas.

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.

  • Do not re-enter the vehicle while pumping gas.

  1. Stop the engine and switch off the ignition.
  2. Open the filler flap by pressing on the rear part of the filler flap (arrow).
