Premium-grade unleaded gasoline

To ensure the longevity and full performance of the engine, only premiumgrade unleaded gasoline may be used.

If there is no premium-grade unleaded gasoline available and regular-grade unleaded gasoline may be used; please observe the following precautions:

 - only fill the fuel tank to half full with regular-grade unleaded gasoline and fill the rest with premium-grade unleaded gasoline as soon as possible.

 - do not drive at the maximum speed.

 - avoid sudden acceleration.

 - if the vehicle is carrying a light load, e.g.

two passengers without luggage, do not allow the engine to rev above 3,000 rpm.

 - if the vehicle is fully loaded or is being operated in mountainous terrain, do not depress the accelerator pedal further than 2/3 of the pedal travel.
