Running out of fuel (Diesel)

On vehicle fitted with HDi engines, the fuel system must be primed if you run out of fuel; refer to the engine compartment view on the "Diesel engine" section.

If the tank on your vehicle is fitted with a misfuel prevention device, refer to the corresponding section.

If the engine does not start first time, don't keep trying. Start the procedure again from the beginning.
