Specifications

Fuel

Petrol engines

Unleaded gasoline is not worse than AI-95 (engines with the catalytic converter).
Unleaded or ethylated gasoline is not worse than AI-95 (engines without catalytic converter).
Use of gasoline not worse than AI-91 is allowed, at the same time engine capacity is cut and fuel consumption increases.

Diesel engines

Automobile (not ship or boiler) summer or winter diesel fuel with the content of sulfur is not higher than of 0.5%. Do not apply biodiesel fuel and methyl air of rape oil.
Preliminary heating of fuel in the filter prevents gusteny fuels during the movement of the car.
Do not apply special means to reduction of viscosity of fuel.

At temperature drop of external air below -9 °C to summer diesel fuel add kerosene (to of % of total volume).

From-9 to -15 °C

From-15 to -25 °C

30%

It is below -25 °C

At temperature drop of external air below -20 °C to winter diesel fuel add means of reduction of viscosity or kerosene (to of % of total volume).

From-20 to -26 °C

From-26 to -31 °C

It is below -31 °C

50%

As the exception is allowed addition to of 30% of low-octane gasoline (unleaded for cars with the catalytic converter) to diesel fuel.

Fuel consumption, emission of CO2

Fuel consumption is determined by a uniform technique of tests (93/116/EG), and is not identical to the sredneekspluatatsionny expense depending on a set of various factors, in particular, from a manner of driving, load of the car, condition of the road, intensity of the movement, existence of a transport stream, weather, pressure in tires, etc. The engine capacity or its share spent at the movement of the car (in a serial complete set), is measured under the conditions determined by standards 80/1269 EG or DIN 70 020 in which also admissible at the same time deviations are also recorded. Some elements of the additional equipment (luggage carrier on a roof, wide-profile tires, additional mirrors, etc.) sometimes significantly influence fuel consumption as they, as a rule, change the weight and coefficient of aerodynamic resistance of the car.

Tires and disks of wheels

For data address Specifications of the Head the Current leaving and service.

Necessary pressure of air in tires is specified also in the plate on a rack of a door of the driver.

The specified pressure belongs to cold tires. As a result of a long trip air pressure in tires increases by 0.2 - 0.4 bars. It must be kept in mind it and not to let out the air from tires. Air pressure in winter tires, as a rule, is established above on 0.2 bars. At operation of the car with winter tires the speed of the movement can be limited. Information on it has to be known to the driver.

Bolts of fastening of the wheels having disks from light alloys should not be applied to fastening of steel disks and vice versa.
