GENERAL INFORMATION

CARS WITH CATALYTIC CONVERTER

Engines of 55 kW, 74 kW, 92 kW, 110 kW (1,8 l) and 110 kW (2,3 l). Gasoline super unleaded with octane number 95 or gasoline normal unleaded with octane number not less than 91.

When using unleaded normal gasoline with octane number not less than 91 is marked out insignificant reduction of capacity.

CARS WITHOUT CATALYTIC CONVERTER

Engine of 74 kW. Gasoline super unleaded or etilirovanny with octane number 95 either gasoline normal unleaded or etilirovanny with octane number not less than 91. Application of normal gasoline conducts to small decrease in engine capacity.

Unleaded gasoline should correspond to the DIN EN 228 standard, and etilirovanny – to the DIN 51 600 standard.

If at your order there is only a fuel with smaller octane number, than it is required for this engine, it is necessary to carry out car movement only with average frequency of rotation of the engine and reduced load of the engine. Big load of the engine owing to full pressing a pedal of an accelerator can lead to engine breakage. As soon as becomes possible, it is necessary to add immediately a fuel tank gasoline with sufficient octane number.

It is possible to apply beyond all bounds gasoline with higher octane number, than it is required for this engine. However it does not give any prize neither in engine capacity, nor in fuel consumption!

The cars equipped with catalytic converter of fulfilled gases, it is necessary to maintain only on unleaded gasoline.

Only one filling of a fuel tank by etilirovanny gasoline conducts to the subsequent decrease in overall performance of catalytic converter.

In interests of protection of environment follows as well the cars which have not been equipped with catalytic converter, whenever possible to fill with unleaded gasoline.
