FUEL FILLER LID
If pressurized fuel sprays out, it can cover your clothes or skin
and thus subject you to the risk
of fire and burns. Always remove
the fuel cap carefully and slowly.
If the cap is venting fuel or if you
hear a hissing sound, wait until
the condition stops before com-
pletely removing the cap.
Do not "top off" after the nozzle automatically shuts off whenrefuelling.
Always check that the fuel cap is installed securely to prevent fuel
spillage in the event of an acci-dent.

WARNING - Tyre inflation
Overinflation or underinflation
can reduce tyre life, adversely
affect vehicle handling, and
lead to sudden tyre failure. This
could result in loss of vehicle
control and potential injury.
CAUTION - Tyre pressure
Always observe the following:
Check tyre pressure when the tyres are cold. (After vehiclehas been parked for at leastthree hours or hasn't been driven more than 1.6 km (onemile) since startup.)
Check the pressure of your spare tyre each time youcheck the pressure of other tyres.
Never overload your vehicle. Be careful not to overload avehicle luggage rack if yourvehicle is equipped with one.
Worn, old tyres can cause accidents. If your tread isbadly worn, or if your tyreshave been damaged, replacethem.
Underinflation also results in excessive wear, poor handlingand reduced fuel economy. Wheel deformation also ispossible. Keep your tyre pres-sures at the proper levels. If a tyre frequently needs refilling,have it checked by an autho-rised HYUNDAI dealer.
Overinflation produces a harsh ride, excessive wear atthe centre of the tyre tread,and a greater possibility ofdamage from road hazards.
Warm tyres normally exceed recommended cold tyre pres-sures by 28 to 41 kPa (4 to 6 psi). Do not release air fromwarm tyres to adjust the pres-sure or the tyres will be under- inflated.
Be sure to reinstall the tyre inflation valve caps. Withoutthe valve cap, dirt or moisturecould get into the valve core and cause air leakage. If avalve cap is missing, install anew one as soon as possible.
