WARNING

Incorrect handling of autogas can cause explosions, fire and serious burns or other injuries.

One country-specific adapter is supplied with your vehicle. We recommend that you purchase all of the adapters and carry them in the vehicle at all times as different countries have different filling stations.

At very high ambient temperatures, the overheating protection function for the autogas refuelling system can switch off automatically.

At very high ambient temperatures, the pressure in the vehicle's autogas tank can be the same as or higher than the pressure in the gas tank of the autogas refuelling system. For physical reasons, it is not then possible to refuel the vehicle.

The fill couplings for autogas refuelling systems have a variety of methods of operation. Please ask for assistance from trained filling station personnel if you are unsure of how to use the system.

Noises that occur during refuelling are normal and do not indicate system damage.
