Fuelling

General instructions

 


The jellied mouth of the fuel tank is located in the right back part of the car.

Having turned the main key in the lock of the locked cover of a mouth of the fuel tank on the left, turn off and remove the last. Uncovered it is possible to fix on the edge of a folding door of the hatch of a mouth.

Capacity of the fuel tank varies depending on model. On carburetor models the volume of a tank makes 47 l, on the models equipped with system of injection of fuel - 42 l.

The first shutdown of regularly functioning automatic gun of a toplivorazlivochny column means that the tank is filled completely. Further gas station can lead to development of leak of fuel from under a cover as a result of its thermal expansion.

Having graduated from gas station, return into place a cover, before click turn a key to the right and take it from the lock.

Try not to allow full development of a reserve of fuel on the models equipped with the catalytic converter. Violation of a regularity of supply of air-fuel mix in the engine can lead to its incomplete combustion and hit of crude fuel in the converter. Ignition of fuel in the converter is fraught with failure of its working element.

Try to avoid transportation of a reserve of fuel in canisters. If it is not possible to avoid such situation, take care of reliability of fastening of a canister.


Fuel type


For gas station of the car it is necessary to use only the fuel grades recommended by his manufacturers. Try to avoid gas stations on container columns, for quality of the fuel spilled on which it is impossible to be charged.

If in an extreme situation it is necessary to make filling of the car with fuel with lower, than it is required by octane number, try not to raise excessively engine turns, moving at an average frequency and with the minimum loadings. At the first opportunity fill in fuel of the required grade in a tank.

Filling of the car with fuel with higher, than is required by octane number it is not forbidden though from the point of view of increase in the power developed by the engine and reduction of fuel consumption it and does not give any advantages.

It is possible to apply to gas station of the models equipped with the catalytic converter only the unleaded fuel which is not containing lead! Violation of this requirement can lead to irreversible failure of the converter.


Use of additives


Quality of the fuel which is filled in in the fuel tank has significant effect on total period of service and efficiency of return of the engine. Increase in performance data of fuel is promoted by use of company additives to it - consult at specialists of car service.

When using diesel fuel of poor quality, it is necessary to merge water from the fuel filter more often than it is stipulated by the Schedule of routine maintenance of the car (see the Head Routine maintenance). Skaplivany waters in the filter has an adverse effect on stability of turns of the engine. The discharge of water is better to make in the conditions of a workshop of car service.

Service regulations of diesel models in winter season


Use of winter diesel fuel


When lowering air temperature below 0 °C in so-called "summer" diesel fuel there is a release of paraffin that conducts to a contamination of the fuel filter and interruptions in operation of the engine.

In the majority of the countries with a frigid climate for gas station of cars in cold season a wide choice of the special "winter" types of diesel fuel providing reliability of functioning of the engine at temperatures up to -15 °C of ÷ of -22 °C is offered (depending on fuel type). Consult at the station company service center of the Skoda company.

Preliminary heating of the fuel filter

The car is equipped with the device for preliminary heating of the fuel filter. Thanks to this device, operational stability of the diesel fuel intended for use at a bang to -15 °C remains up to temperature of external air of -25 °C. need of admixture in gasoline diesel fuel at the same time disappears.

It is not necessary to add to diesel fuel any additives (including gasoline) increasing its fluidity, or other operational parameters.
