3) refuelling by gasoline PETROL 95 with insignificant decrease in capacity of the engine Is possible. PETROL 91 it can be applied only in exceptional cases.

Diesel engines

Diesel fuel on DIN EN 590

Tsetanovoe number not less than 49

Do not use biodiesel fuel (a methyl aether рапсового oil)

Operation in winter conditions

Winter diesel fuel which depending on its mark provides engine trouble-free work at temperature to-15S or to-22S.

Heating of the fuel filter

The car is equipped by the device of heating of the fuel filter. Thanks to it the fuel calculated on its application at temperature to-15S, it is possible to use at temperature approximately to-25S.
If at air temperature more low-25S fuel became so dense that the engine is not started, to allow to the car some time to stand in a warmed premise enough.
To diesel fuel it is not necessary to mix the various additives raising its fluidity.
