OCTANE RATING

NOTES

Federal law requires that gasoline octane ratings are displayed on the fuel pumps.

Vehicles with a gasoline engine require the use of premium unleaded gasoline, with a minimum octane rating of 91 AKI (Anti-Knock Index). Using the correct fuel specification helps to maintain the vehicle's performance, fuel economy and driveability.

If premium unleaded fuel is not available, then use unleaded fuel with a lower octane rating, down to a minimum of 87 AKI. Using lower octane rated fuel may reduce the engine's performance, increase fuel consumption, cause an audible engine knock, and other driveability problems.

CAUTION

Do not use fuels with an octane rating lower than 87 AKI as severe engine damage may occur.

Consult a retailer/authorized repairer if a heavy persistent engine knock is detected, even if using fuel to the recommended octane rating. Particularly if an engine knock is detected, while holding a steady speed on level roads. Failure to do so is misuse of the vehicle, which is not covered by the vehicle's warranty.

NOTES

An occasional light engine knock when accelerating or climbing hills is acceptable.

CAUTION

Do not use leaded fuels, fuels with lead substitutes (e.g. manganese-based), or fuel additives. Doing so, may adversely affect the vehicle's exhaust emissions control systems, and may also affect the vehicle's warranty.
