Skoda Fabia: Diesel fuel

Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

The vehicle can only be operated with diesel fuel that meets the EN 5901) standard.

All diesel engines can be operated using diesel fuel with a maximum of 7% biodiesel (B7)2).

Operation in winter - Winter-grade diesel fuel

In the cold season, only use “winter-grade diesel fuel” which will still operate properly even at a temperature of -20 °C.

It is often the case in countries with different climatic conditions that diesel fuels available have a different temperature characteristic. ŠKODA Partners and filling stations in the relevant country will be able to provide you with information regarding the diesel fuels available.

Diesel fuel additives

Additives, so-called “flow improvers ” (petrol and similar agents) should not be mixed with the diesel fuel. This can cause serious damage to engine or exhaust system parts.

CAUTION

  • Just filling the tank once with diesel fuel that does not comply with the standard, can cause severe damage to parts of the engine, the fuel and exhaust system!
  • If a fuel other than diesel fuel complying with the standards referred to above (e.g. petrol) is used by mistake do not start the engine or switch on the ignition. Engine parts could be significantly damaged. We recommend that you have the fuel system cleaned by a specialist garage.
  • Water which has collected in the fuel filter can cause engine faults.
  • The vehicle cannot be operated with biofuel RME, therefore this fuel must not be filled in the tank and used for driving the vehicle. The use of biofuel RME can cause considerable damage to parts of the engine or fuel system.
  • Do not mix any fuel additives, so-called “flow improvers” (petrol and similar agents), into the diesel. This can result in considerable damage to parts of the engine or the exhaust system!
