3. Open the fuel tank filler tube by slowly turning the cap anticlockwise.

NOTE

Put the fuel tank cap on the cap holder (C) while refueling.

CAUTION

Since the fuel system may be under pressure, remove the fuel tank filler tube cap slowly. This relieves any pressure or vacuum that might have built up in the fuel tank. If the cap is venting vapor or if you hear a hissing sound, wait until it stops before removing the cap. Otherwise, fuel may spray out, injuring you or others.

4. To fill with fuel correctly depends mainly on correct handling of the fuel filler gun. Do not tilt the gun. Insert the gun in the tank port as far as it goes.

CAUTION

Petrol–powered vehicles have a label located on the fuel tank filler lid that states, ”UNLEADED FUEL ONLY”. The vehicle also has a fuel tank filler tube especially designed to accept the smaller diameter unleaded petrol dispensing nozzles only.

If the tank cap must be replaced, use only a MITSUBISHI original part specified for your vehicle.

5. When the gun stops automatically, remove the gun half the way in the tank port. After the second automatic stop, do not fill with fuel any more.

CAUTION

To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not ”top–off” the fuel tank.

6. To close, turn the fuel tank filler tube cap slowly clockwise until you hear clicking sounds, then gently push the fuel tank filler door closed.

CAUTION

If you need replace the fuel tank filler tube cap, use only the cap specified for your model vehicle.
