Fuel tank

Capacity of the tank: approximately 60 litres.

Low fuel level

When the low fuel level is reached, this warning lamp comes on in the instrument

When the low fuel level is reached, this warning lamp comes on in the instrument panel, accompanied by an audible signal and a message in the multifunction screen. When the lamp first comes on, there is approximately 6 litres of fuel remaining.

Until sufficient fuel has been added, this warning lamp appears every time the ignition is switched on, accompanied by an audible signal and a message. When driving, this audible signal and message are repeated with increasing frequency, as the fuel level drops towards "0" .

Refuelling

A label affixed to the inside of the filler flap reminds you of the type of fuel to be used according to your engine.

More than 5 litres of fuel must be added in order to be registered by the fuel gauge.

To fi ll the tank safely:

the engine must be switched off, open the fuel filler flap, insert the key in the cap, then turn it to the left, When refuelling is complete: put the cap back in place, turn the key to the right, then remove it from the cap, close the filler flap.

Operating fault

A malfunction of the fuel gauge is indicated by the return to zero of the fuel gauge needle.

Have it checked by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

The key cannot be removed from the lock until the cap is put back on the

tank. The key cannot be removed from the lock until the cap is put back on the tank.

Opening the cap may trigger an inrush of air. This vacuum, which is completely normal, is caused by the sealing of the fuel system.

Quality of the fuel used for petrol engines

The petrol engines are perfectly compatible with E10 or E24 type petrol biofuels

The petrol engines are perfectly compatible with E10 or E24 type petrol biofuels (containing 10 % or 24 % ethanol), conforming to European standards EN 228 and EN 15376.

E85 type fuels (containing up to 85 % ethanol) are reserved exclusively for vehicles marketed for the use of this type of fuel (BioFlex vehicles). The quality of the ethanol must comply with European standard EN 15293.

For Brazil only, special vehicles are marketed to run on fuels containing up to 100 % ethanol (E100 type).

For Russia only, the use of RON 92 unleaded petrol is possible.

Quality of the fuel used for Diesel engines

The Diesel engines are perfectly compatible with biofuels which conform to current

The Diesel engines are perfectly compatible with biofuels which conform to current and future European standards (Diesel fuel which complies with standard EN 590 mixed with a biofuel which complies with standard EN 14214) available at the pumps (containing up to 7 % Fatty Acid Methyl Ester).

The B30 biofuel can be used in certain Diesel engines; however, this use is subject to strict application of the special servicing conditions. Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

The use of any other type of (bio)fuel (vegetable or animal oils, pure or diluted, domestic fuel...) is strictly prohibited (risk of damage to the engine and fuel system).

Travelling abroad

As Diesel fuel pump nozzles may be different in other countries, the presence of the misfuel prevention device may make refuelling impossible.

Before travelling abroad, we recommend that you check with the PEUGEOT dealer network, whether your vehicle is suitable for the fuel pumps in the country in which you want to travel.
