Your vehicle has a fuel tank capacity of 14.0 gallons (53 liters). Use only “Regular” unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 87 or higher. Do not use E85 fuels because your vehicle is not designed to run on fuels with more than 15% ethanol.
Your plug-in hybrid's transmission is designed to work seamlessly, so you may not feel shift changes as you normally would in a gasoline-powered vehicle; however, you may feel the transition when the system changes from electric vehicle (EV) mode to gas mode. This is normal. Since your engine speed is controlled by the transmission, it may seem elevated at times. This is also normal operation, as it helps deliver fuel efficiency and performance.
Easy Fuel® System
Unlock the fuel door by pressing the fuel button located to the right of your transmission shifter lever—it could be up to 15 seconds before the fuel door opens. Insert the fuel nozzle and begin fueling. Wait 10 seconds after the nozzle is shut off before you remove it from the vehicle. This allows the residual fuel to drain into the tank.
NOTE When using a portable fuel container, only use the funnel that comes with your vehicle. Do not use aftermarket funnels as they will not work with the Easy Fuel System, and may cause damage. Refer to the Fuel and Refueling chapter of your Owner's
Manual for more information.

Tire Mobility Kit
Fusion Energi is equipped with a tire mobility kit that is located under the front passenger seat. It consists of an air compressor to reinflate the tire and a sealing compound in a canister that will seal most punctures caused by nails or similar objects. Refer to the Wheels and Tires chapter of your Owner’s Manual for more details.
Your vehicle illuminates a low tire pressure warning light in your instrument cluster when one or more of your tires are significantly underinflated. If this happens, stop and check your tires as soon as possible, then inflate them to the proper pressure. Refer to the Inflating Your Tires section in the Wheels and Tires chapter of your Owner’s Manual for more information.
Electric Parking Brake
This feature replaces the conventional handbrake. The operating switch is located on the center console, to the left of the gearshift lever. To apply the electric parking brake, pull the switch up. The brake system warning lamp will illuminate to confirm that the electric parking brake has been applied.
You can release the electric parking brake manually by turning the ignition on, pressing the brake pedal and then pressing the electric parking brake switch.
Refer to the Brakes chapter of your Owner's Manual for more details.

Fuel Freshness Mode
If you operate your vehicle mainly in plug-in power mode, the gasoline in your tank eventually becomes old. Old fuel can damage the engine and fuel system. To prevent the fuel from becoming old, your vehicle will automatically enter fuel freshness mode that causes the gasoline engine to run in order to consume the fuel in the fuel tank. Refer to the Fuel and Refueling chapter of your Owner's Manual for more information.
