 The key cannot be removed from 

the lock until the cap is refi tted. 

FUEL TANK

  Fuel tank capacity: approximately 

50 litres (petrol) or 48 litres (Diesel).  

 Opening the fi ller cap may create a 

noise caused by an inrush of air. This 

vacuum is entirely normal, resulting 

from the sealing of the fuel system. 
 To fi ll the tank safely: 
   )    the engine must be switched off,  
  )   open the fuel fi ller fl ap, 
  )   insert the key in the cap, then turn it 

to the left, 

 When you have fi lled the tank: 
   )   put the cap back in place, 
  )   turn the key to the right, then remove 

it from the cap, 

  )  close the fl ap.   

  )  remove the cap and hook it onto 

the clip located on the inside of the 

fl ap, 

  )   fi ll the tank,  

but do not continue 

after the 3rd cut-off of the pump ; 

this could cause malfunctions.  

  Low fuel level 

  Filling 

 When the fuel tank minimum 

level is reached this warning 

lamp comes on on the instru-

ment panel. When it fi rst comes 

on there remains  approximately 5 litres  

of fuel in the tank. 
 You must refuel as soon as possible to 

avoid running out of fuel. 
 If you run out of fuel (Diesel), refer also 

to the "Checks" section.  

 A label affi xed to the inside of the fl ap 

reminds you of the type of fuel to be 

used depending on your engine. 
 Additions of fuel must be of at least 

5 litres, in order to be taken into account 

by the fuel gauge.

           Quality of the fuel used for 

petrol engines 

            Quality of the fuel used for 

Diesel engines 

  The petrol engines are perfectly com-

patible with E10 type petrol biofuels 

(containing 10% ethanol), conforming 

to European standards EN 228 and 

EN 15376. 
 E85 type fuels (containing up to 85% 

ethanol) are reserved exclusively for ve-

hicles 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).   

  The Diesel engines are perfectly com-

patible with biofuels which conform to 

current and future European standards 

(Diesel fuel which complies with stan-

dard 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 cer-

tain Diesel engines; however, this use 

is subject to strict application of the 

special servicing conditions. Contact a 

PEUGEOT dealer or a qualifi ed  work-

shop. 
 The use of any other type of (bio)fuel 

(vegetable or animal oils, pure or dilut-

ed, domestic fuel...) is strictly prohibited 

(risk of damage to the engine and fuel 

system).

MISFUEL PREVENTION *

 Mechanical device which prevents fi ll-

ing the tank of a Diesel vehicle with 

petrol. It avoids the risk of engine dam-

age that can result from fi lling with the 

wrong fuel. 
 Located in the fi ller neck, the misfuel 

prevention device appears when the 

fi ller cap is removed. 

  Operation 

 When a petrol fi ller nozzle is introduced 

into the fuel fi ller neck of your Diesel 

vehicle, it comes into contact with the 

fl ap. The system remains closed and 

prevents fi lling. 
  Do not persist but introduce a Diesel 

type fi ller nozzle.   

 It is still possible to use a fuel can 

to fi ll the reservoir.  
In order to ensure a good fl ow of fuel, 

do not place the nozzle of the fuel 

can in direct contact with the fl ap of 

the misfuel prevention device. 

   Travelling abroad 
 As Diesel fuel pump nozzles may be 

different in other countries, the pres-

ence of the misfuel prevention device 

may make refuelling impossible. 
 Before travelling abroad, we rec-

ommend 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.   

  *   According to destination country.

CHILD SAFETY

90

  PEUGEOT recommends  that 

children should travel in the  rear 

seats  of your vehicle: 
   -  

 "rearwards-facing"  up to the 

age of 2, 

  -  

 "forwards-facing"  over the 

age of 2.  

GENERAL POINTS RELATING
TO CHILD SEATS

CHILD SEAT IN THE FRONT

  "Rearwards-facing" 
 When a "rearwards-facing" child seat is 

installed on the  front passenger seat , 

it is essential that the passenger airbag 

is deactivated. Otherwise,  

the child 

would risk being seriously injured or 

killed if the airbag were to infl ate .  

  *    The rules for carrying children are 

specifi c to each country. Refer to the 

current legislation in your country.  

 Although one of PEUGEOT's main cri-

teria when designing your vehicle, the 

safety of your children also depends on 

you. 
 For maximum safety, please observe 

the following recommendations: 
   -  in accordance with European 

regulations,  all children under the 

age of 12 or less than one and a 

half metres tall must travel in ap-

proved child seats suited to their 

weight , on seats fi tted with a seat 

belt or ISOFIX mountings * , 

  -  

 statistically, the safest seats in 

your vehicle for carrying children 

are the rear seats,  

  -  

 a child weighing less than 9 kg 

must travel in the "rearwards-

facing" position both in the front 

and in the rear.   

  Intermediate longitudinal 

position   

  "Forwards-facing" 
 When a "forwards-facing" child seat is 

installed on the  front passenger seat , 

adjust the vehicle's seat to the interme-

diate longitudinal position with the seat 

back upright and leave the passenger 

airbag activated.
