Mitsubishi Outlander: Filling the fuel tank - General information - Mitsubishi Outlander Owner's ManualMitsubishi Outlander: Filling the fuel tank

WARNING:
● When handling fuel, comply with the safety regulations displayed by garages and filling stations.
● Before removing the fuel cap, be sure to get rid of your body’s static electricity by touching a metal part of the car or fuel pump. Any static electricity on your body could create a spark that ignites fuel vapour.
● Perform the whole refuelling process (opening the fuel tank filler door, removing the fuel cap, etc.) by yourself. Do not let any other person come near the fuel tank filler. If you allowed a person to help you and that person was carrying static electricity, fuel vapour could be ignited.
● Do not move away from the fuel tank filler until is finished. If you moved away and did something else (for example, cleaning your windscreen) part-way through the refuelling process, you could pick up a fresh charge of static electricity.
● If the tank cap must be replaced, use only a MITSUBISHI MOTORS original part.

● Do not tilt the gun.
