  • Preparation for working in the engine compartment  


An incorrect refuelling procedure and incorrect handling of fuel can cause explosions, fire and serious burns and injuries.
  • Always ensure that the tank cap is closed properly to prevent the evaporation and spillage of fuel.
  • Fuel is highly explosive and inflammable and can cause serious burns and other injuries.
  • Fuel could spill out if when refuelling the engine is not switched off or the fuel nozzle is not fully inserted into the fuel filler neck. This could cause fire, explosions and serious burns and injuries.
  • When refilling with fuel, the engine , auxiliary heater (  ) and the ignition must be switched off for safety reasons.
  • When refuelling, always switch off your mobile telephone and two-way radio or any other radio equipment. Electromagnetic radiation could generate sparks which could in turn start a fire.
  • When refuelling, never get into the vehicle. If in exceptional cases you have to enter the vehicle, close the door and touch a metal object before touching the pump nozzle again. This will remove any electrostatic charge from you. Failure to do so could generate a spark. Sparks could cause a fire when refuelling.
  • Never refuel or fill up a spare canister near open flames, sparks or glowing items (e.g. cigarettes).
  • Electrostatic discharge and electromagnetic radiation must be avoided when refuelling.
  • Follow all applicable safety information provided by the filling station when refuelling.
  • Never spill fuel in the vehicle or in the luggage compartment.


For safety reasons, Volkswagen does not recommend carrying a spare fuel canister in the vehicle. Fuel could spill out of the full or empty canister and set alight. This is especially relevant in the event of an accident. This could cause explosions, fire and injuries.
  • If, in exceptional circumstances, you have to transport a spare fuel canister, please note the following:
    • When refilling, never place the canister in or on top of the vehicle, for example in the luggage compartment or on the tailgate. There may be an electrostatic charge during refilling causing the fuel fumes to ignite.
    • Always place the spare fuel canister on the ground.
    • When filling up a spare fuel canister, place the filer nozzle as far as possible into the filler opening.
    • If the spare fuel canister is made of metal, the filler nozzle must have constant contact with the canister in order to avoid static charging.
    • Please follow all legislation concerning the use, storage and transport of a spare fuel canister.
    • Please ensure that the spare fuel canister corresponds with the industry standard, for example ANSI or ASTM F852-86.


  • Remove spilt fuel from the vehicle paint as quickly as possible in order to avoid damage to the wheel housing, tyres and vehicle paint.
  • Filling up with petrol in a vehicle fitted with a diesel engine or refilling with diesel in vehicle equipped with a petrol engine can cause serious ands expensive engine damage and damage to the fuel system that is not covered by any Volkswagen guarantee. Do not under any circumstances start the engine if you have refilled with the wrong fuel. This also applies even if only a small amount of the incorrect fuel has been refilled. Use expert assistance! These fuels can cause serious damage to the fuel system and to the engine itself if the engine is switched on.
  • Vehicles with a diesel engine may under no circumstances be filled up and driven with petrol, kerosene, heating oil or any other fuels that have not been clearly approved for diesel engines. Other fuels could cause extensive and expensive engine damage and damage to the fuel system which will not be covered by any Volkswagen guarantee.

Fuels can pollute the environment. Any spilt service fluids must be cleaned up and disposed of properly.

The tank flap cannot be opened manually. Use expert assistance if necessary.
