Filling by only unleaded gasoline with octane number not below 87 (on a research method) is allowed. If knocks (detonation) or unstable operation of the engine ("failures") that are shown refuel gasoline with higher octane number. If this measure does not give results, check and adjust turns of idling and the ignition moment. If abnormal operation of the engine is felt still, the reason is malfunction or wear of the engine. Driving with failures in operation of the engine is not allowed, as results in the strengthened wear of a gear belt or a chain.

The manufacturer extremely does not recommend application of various additives to fuel for cleaning of chambers of combustion, etc. Very rare application of additives for cleaning of gasoline pipe lines and a tank of resinous deposits is allowed. It is recommended to use a mix of 90 % of unleaded gasoline from 10 % of ethanol (газоль). If abnormal operation of the engine is felt, it is necessary to pass to standard high-octane grades of gasoline immediately. Keep in mind that some grades of fuel already contain necessary additives. It is forbidden to fill petrolspirit mixes on the basis of methanol, otherwise the fuel system will fail.


Fuelling of brands 1-D or 2-D, or winter brands 2-D is allowed. At low temperatures fuel 1-D or winter brands 2-D is recommended. It is forbidden to add oil and various solvents in fuel. At erroneous hit of gasoline in a diesel engine tank, remove a tank and wash out, it is forbidden to start the engine.

Oil for the engine


It is forbidden to fill in oil without washing additives, or undiluted mineral oil.
