FUEL TANK CAPACITY/FUEL RECOMMENDATIONS:Your fuel tank can accommodate 18.0
gallons of gasoline. Your vehicle is designed to use “Premium” unleaded gasoline with an
(R+M)/2 octane rating of 91 or higher for optimum performance. The use of gasolines with
lower octane ratings may degrade performance.
FUSES:If electrical components in your vehicle stop working, a fuse may have blown. (You’ll
notice a broken wire within the fuse.) For information on changing fuses, please consult
your Owner’s Guide.
TIRE PRESSURE:Improperly inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly,
possibly resulting in loss of vehicle control. Check your tires for proper air pressure monthly;
check the air pressure in your spare tire every six months. Always use an accurate tire
pressure gauge. Check the tire pressure when tires are cold, after the vehicle has been
parked for at least 3 hours or has been driven less than 3 miles. (As you drive, the
temperature in the tire warms up, increasing the tire pressure.) Adjust the tire pressure to the
recommended specifications found on the inflation placard.
CHANGING THE TIRES:Your spare tire, jack and lug nut wrench are located under your
trunk cargo cover. (On V8 Sport models, the lug nut wrench is attached to the jack assembly.
To use the wrench, remove it from the jack and extend the shaft.) Your vehicle may have a
temporary or full-size spare tire. The temporary spare tire for your vehicle is labeled as such.
It is smaller than a regular tire and is designed for emergency use only. Drive cautiously and
replace the temporary spare tire as soon as possible.
If you get a flat tire while driving, do not apply the brake heavily. Instead, gradually decrease
your speed. Hold the steering wheel firmly and slowly move to a safe place on the side of
