WARNING

For safety reasons, Volkswagen does not recommend carrying a spare fuel canister in the vehicle. Fuel can spill out of the full or empty canister and catch fire, especially in the event of an accident. This could cause explosions, fire and injuries.

NOTICE

Fuels can pollute the environment. Any spilt service fluids must be cleaned up and disposed of properly.

The tank flap cannot be opened manually. Seek expert assistance if necessary.
