Fuel, Oil & Emissions

Fuel Requirements

Petrol

Use only the recommended fuel which meets national standard! Serious damage to the catalytic converter will occur if the wrong fuel is used.


Petrol fuel specification: 95 RON unleaded petrol to EN 228 specification.

Diesel

Diesel fuel specification: Diesel to EN590.

  • Minimum Cetane Rating is 49;

  • Maximum Biofuel Content is 7.5%.

Fuel Filler

V4036

Fuel Filler Flap
The fuel filler flap is located on the rear right-hand.

Note: The fuel flap is locked only when the car is locked using the handset.

Fuel Filler Cap
Unscrew the filler cap anti-clockwise and allow any pressure inside the tank to escape, before removing the cap.

DO NOT fully fill the tank if the vehicle is to be parked in direct sunlight, or high ambient temperature – expansion of the fuel could cause spillage.


Petrol

The filler tube is designed to accept a narrow filler nozzle of the type found on pumps that deliver ONLY unleaded fuel. Insert dispensing nozzle sufficiently far to ensure no spillage.

Diesel
The diesel filler tube is designed to accept a wider diesel nozzle. Be careful not to mis-fuel, see label on filler flap.

RDE - Real Driving Emissions

The acronym RDE stands for Real Driving Emissions and refers to the tail-pipe emissions performance of your vehicle during a typical “real world” drive.

RDE was introduced as a legal requirement in 2016 under the European Commission legislation RDE (EU) 427/2016.  The legislated pollutants are Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulates (Particulate Number - PN).  Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) are also monitored over the drive.

RDE emissions are measured by using a Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS) which is fitted to the vehicle to record in real-time, pollutants produced by the vehicle during a typical daily drive.

An RDE test consists of driving a vehicle on public roads equipped with the PEMS kit and meeting a range of criteria defined by the legislation. These include: road type (equal share between rural, urban and motorway), distance covered, average speed, ambient temperature, altitude and the driver characteristics.
