To open the cap, turn it anticlockwise and then remove it.

During refuelling, secure the cap to the anti-loss device on the flap as shown in the figure.

On certain versions the cap has a keylock: to open it proceed as described below.

Opening the cap with keylock (where provided)

Proceed as follows:

❒ hold the cap still and turn the ignition key anticlockwise;
❒ turn the cap by approximately half a turn anticlockwise and remove it.

The airtight seal of the cap may lead to a slight increase of pressure in the tank. A hissing sound when the cap is removed is therefore quite normal. When refuelling, position the cap on the flap as shown in the figure.

WARNING

Do not put naked flames or lighted cigarettes near the fuel filler hole: danger of fire. Do not bend too close to the hole either so as not to breathe in harmful vapours.

Locking the cap with keylock (where provided)

Proceed as follows:

❒ insert the cap (with the key) and turn it clockwise until it clicks once or more;
❒ turn the key clockwise and remove it. Close the flap.
