Diesel engines

Use diesel fuel for motor vehicles complying with European specifications

Use diesel fuel for motor vehicles complying with European specifications EN590 only. The use of other products or mixtures may damage the engine beyond repair and invalidate the warranty. If the tank is accidentally filled with other types of fuel, do not start the engine and drain the tank. If the engine has run even for a very short time, you will also need to drain the fuel supply circuit.

If the outside temperature is very low, the diesel thickens due to the formation of paraffin and could clog the fuel filter.

In order to avoid these problems, different types of diesel are distributed according to the season: summer type, winter type and arctic type (cold mountain areas).

If refueling with diesel fuel not adequate, you are recommended to add TUTELA DIESEL ART to the fuel, in the proportions written on the container.

Pour the antifreeze into the fuel tank before the fuel.
