REAR SCREEN WASH/WIPE 

(2/2)

In the event of obstacles present on the 

rear window (dirt, snow, etc.), the wiper 

will try to sweep away all the obstacles. 

If an obstacle prevents the blade from 

moving, it can be stopped. Remove the 

obstacle, wait for around 30 seconds 

and reactivate the wiper using the wiper 

stalk.

Precautions
–  

In the event of ice, check whether 

the blades are stuck to the wind-

screen before operating the wiping 

mechanism. If you activate the wiper 

while the blade is blocked by ice, you 

risk damaging both the blade and the 

wiping motor.

–  

Do not activate the wipers on a dry 

screen. This will lead to premature 

wear or damage to the blades.

Activation/deactivation of the rear 

screen wiper 
Engaging reverse gear triggers inter-

mittent wiping (if the front wipers are in 

operation). If your vehicle is fitted with 

a vehicle settings customisation menu, 

you can opt to activate or deactivate 

this function. To do this, refer to the in-

formation on the “Vehicle settings cus-

tomisation menu” in Section 1; “Rear 

wiping in reverse gear”.
For vehicles not fitted with a settings 

customisation menu, you can have this 

function deactivated by an authorised 

dealer.

p

Rear screen wash/wipe

With the ignition on, push and 

hold stalk 1, then release.
A longer action will trigger three sweeps 

of the wipers followed, a few seconds 

later, by a fourth, in addition to the wind-

screen washer.

Fuel grade

Use a high-grade fuel that complies 

with the legislation in force in each 

country and which must comply with 

the specifications given on the label 

on the cover 1. Please refer to the in-

formation on “Engine specifications” in 

Section 6.

Diesel versions

Only use diesel fuel which complies 

with the information on the label located 

inside the cover 1.

Petrol versions

It is essential to use unleaded petrol. 

The octane rating (RON) must comply 

with the information given on the label 

on the cover 1. Refer to Section 6 for 

information on “Engine specifications”.

FUEL TANK 

(1/3)

Useable fuel tank capacity:

– Approximately  11.22 gallons 

(51 litres) for the petrol versions;

– Approximately  11.44 gallons 

(52 litres) for the diesel versions 

with two-wheel steering mode;

– Approximately  10.34 gallons 

(47 litres) for the diesel versions 

with four-wheel steering mode.

With the vehicle unlocked, to open 

cover 1, press area A then release. The 

cover 1 opens.

Valve 2 is integrated into the filler pipe.

For details on filling the fuel tank, refer 

to the information on “Filling with fuel”.

To close it, press on the fuel filler flap by 

hand, as far as it will go.

Never press valve 2 with 

your fingers.
Do not wash the filler 

area with a high-pressure 

washer.

Do not mix even small amounts of petrol (unleaded or E85) with diesel.

Do not use ethanol-based fuel if your vehicle is not compatible with this 

fuel.

Do not add additive to the fuel –otherwise you risk damaging the engine.

FUEL TANK 

(2/3)

Filling with fuel

Insert the nozzle to open the valve 2 

and insert it fully before turning it on to 

fill the fuel tank (risk of splashing).
Keep the nozzle in this position through-

out the entire filling operation.
When the pump cuts out automatically 

at the end of the filling procedure, a 

maximum of two further filling attempts 

may be made, as there must be suffi-

cient space in the fuel tank to allow for 

expansion.
Make sure that no water enters the fuel 

tank during filling. The valve 2 and its 

surround must remain clean.

2

Petrol versions
Using leaded petrol will damage the 

antipollution system and may lead to a 

loss of warranty.
To ensure that the fuel tank is not filled 

with leaded petrol, the fuel tank filler 

neck consists of a restrictor fitted with 

a safety system which only allows 

a nozzle for unleaded petrol to be 

used (at the pump).

Vehicle fitted with the Stop and 

Start function
To fill up with fuel, the engine must 

be stopped (and not on standby): 

stop the engine (Please See 

“Starting, stopping the engine” in 

Section 2).

1.101

Vehicles with RENAULT card
With the card RENAULT in the pas-

senger compartment, press the start 

button  3 without pressing any of the 

pedals. Wait a few minutes before start-

ing. This will enable the fuel circuit to 

be primed. If the engine does not start, 

repeat the procedure.
If the engine does not start after several 

attempts, please contact an authorised 

dealer.

No modifications what-

soever are permitted on 

any part of the fuel supply 

system (electronic units, 

wiring, fuel circuit, injectors, pro-

tective covers, etc.) as this may be 

dangerous (unless undertaken by 

qualified Network personnel).

fic conditions allow and switch off 

the ignition;

lights and ask your passengers 

to leave the vehicle and to keep 

away from traffic;
