Note

To ensure the fuel level is displayed

correctly, the ignition must be

switched off before refuelling. Avoid

minor fuel top-ups (e.g. less than

five litres) to ensure accurate

readings.

Because of the fuel remaining in the

tank, the top-up quantity may be less

than the specified tank capacity.
