After refuelling bioethanol vehicles

MultiFuel engines can be run either with petrol (RON 95) or with bioethanol E85, and with all mixtures of these two fuels   . The proportion of bioethanol contained in the fuel must not exceed 85%  . The procedure for refilling the vehicle is the same as for refilling with petrol   .

After refuelling with a mixture of bioethanol and petrol, drive for at least five minutes so the engine can adapt optimally to the current mixture. During this period the idling engine speed can vary. During this period, do not drive at top speed, use high engine revs or depress the accelerator fully.

WARNING

Do not continue filling the tank once the filler nozzle stops automatically. The fuel tank could be overfilled. This can cause fuel to splash out and overflow. This can cause fires, explosions and serious injuries.

NOTICE

Spilt fuel can pollute the environment.
