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 jelling of fuel 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).

Motive oil has to satisfy to both classifications - ASEA: A3-96 and ASEA: B-3-96 or CCMC-G5 and SSMS-PD2.

Viscosity of oils, is designated on SAE classification. The choice of oil is defined by the average air temperature caused season. It is correct to determine the oil class suitable on viscosity by SAE the chart given on an accompanying illustration allows. A short-term exit of the actual air temperature out of the lower or top limit of the designated range is allowed.

- Reduced pressure of air belongs to cold tires. The increase in pressure of air arising in the course of the movement in tires owing to their warming up on 0.2 - 0.4 bars should not be considered. At operation of winter tires the speed of the movement has to be reduced.

Owing to emergence of new models of tires and disks they can be applied to installation on cars of earlier release. About a possibility of their application it is necessary to consult on HUNDRED.

At sports management style the car recommends to increase air pressure in forward and back tires upon 0.2 bars. At the same time initial pressure is pressure established for various conditions of loading.
b) At the movement with the trailer air pressure in tires is established according to a state "Full loading".
c) Values of pressure of air are specified on a sticker on a rack of a door of the driver.

According to the established rules depth of a profile of the tire should not reach less than 1.6 mm as a result of wear of value. All working surface of the tire has to have depth not less than 1.6 mm. It is recommended to replace summer tires with a depth of profile of 2 mm, and winter with a depth of profile of 4 mm.

Designation of tires and disks


Example of designation of the tire

225

width of a profile, mm

/60

tire profile height relation to its width (height of a profile makes of 60% of width of the tire)
If this parameter is absent (for example, 195 R14), then it is about the normal relation making of 82%.

R

radial tire

15

assembly diameter of a rim in inches

96

loading capacity index

If between parameters 15 and 96 there is a designation M+S, then it is about the tire with a winter profile.

V

category of admissible maximum speed.

The category of speed costs at the end of marking. The symbol of speed belongs both to summer, and to winter tires.

Date of production of the tire
Date of production of the tire is presented in the form of a code of the manufacturer.

Example: DOT CUL2 of UM8 286 <TUBELESS
DOT - department of transport (U.S. Department of Transportation)
CU - a code of the manufacturer
L2 - the tire size
UM8 - execution of the tire
286 - date of production - the 38th working week 1997
<-a symbol of decade (1990 - 1999g.g.)
TUBELESS - the tubeless tire (TUBETYPE - chamber)

Example of designation of a disk: 7Jx15:
7 - rim width in inches
J-marking of height and a profile of a rim (In - lower form of a nozzle)
x - designation of the disk consisting of one detail
15 - diameter of a rim in inches

If at the end of marking of the tire there is a word "reinforced", then it is about the tire of the strengthened execution.
