Petrol engines

All models, except 132 kw equipped with engines (AJQ):
Neetilirovannyj gasoline is not worse PETROL–95
Application unleaded gasoline not worse PETROL–91 is supposed, thus capacity of the engine decreases.

Models with engines of 132 kw (AJQ):
Neetilirovannyj gasoline is not worse PETROL–98. Application unleaded gasoline not worse PETROL–95 is supposed, thus capacity of the engine decreases.

Diesel engines

Diesel fuel on DIN EN1) 590 Tsetanovoe number not less than 49
Biodiesel fuel on Е DIN 51 606 РМЕ (a methyl aether of vegetable oil)
Almost does not contain some sulphur. Therefore at combustion РМЕ almost are absent allocation of dioxide of sulphur (S02).

Fulfilled gases contains less:

oxide carbon,
– Hydrocarbon,
– A soot.

Decrease in capacity and increase in the expense of fuel can take place insignificant.

In a cold season mainly fill diesel fuel. Application РМЕ is supposed at temperature to-10S.
At temperature less-10S it is necessary to add diesel fuel in a proportion 1: 1 to prevent curling of fuel РМЕ.

Diesel engine operation in winter conditions

At use of a summer variant of diesel fuel at temperature more low 0С there can come faults in engine work that speaks густением fuel as a result of paraffin allocation.

Therefore apply "winter" diesel fuel. Depending on mark winter fuel provides uninterrupted operation at temperatures from-15S to-22S.

Do not add gasoline to diesel fuel, etc. diluents.

At poor quality of fuel removal of water from a sediment bowl of the fuel filter probably is required to be made more often, than it is provided by the schedule THAT.

For water removal turn on a hand a carving stopper in the bottom part of the filter. The water congestion in the filter can lead to infringements of work of the engine.

The service book

In the service book, in particular, contain:

– Key parametres of your car;
– Values of the expense of fuel and emission oxide carbon in the fulfilled gases;
– Data on periodicity of maintenance service;
– Maintenance service regulations.

In the service book also performance of regulations of maintenance service documentary proves to be true. It can be of great importance at a presentation of claims on a guarantee.

It is necessary to show the service book at each your reference on HUNDRED Audi.
