This Owners Manual is designed to help vehicle users derive the greatest possi- ble amount of enjoyment and satisfaction from driving the HYUNDAI vehicle. It is strongly recommended that the entire manual is read in order that all of the fea- tures, safety systems and maintenance requirements are understood.
To minimise the RISK of death or injury, the "WARNING" and "CAUTION" state- ments must be read and understood before operating the vehicle.
Illustrations are used throughout the manual to complement written descrip- tions intended to best explain how to enjoy using the vehicle.
Reading this manual will assist the vehi- cle user to learn about and understand the features, important safety informa- tion, and driving recommendations.
The general layout of the manual is pro- vided in the Table of Contents. The index has an alphabetical listing of all the infor- mation contained in the manual. The manual has nine sections plus an index. Each section begins with a brief list of contents to easily identify at a glance if that section contains the information being sought.
"WARNING", "CAUTION", and "NOTICE"
information is provided to enhance the personal safety of the vehicle user. This information must be carefully read and followed.
A WARNING indicates a situation in which harm, serious bodily injury or death could result if the warning is ignored.
A CAUTION indicates a situation in which damage to your vehicle could result if the caution is ignored.
A NOTICE indicates interesting or help- ful information is being provided.
For the optimal vehicle performance, we recommend you to use unleaded petrol with an octane rating of RON (Research Octane Number) 95 / AKI (Anti Knock Index) 91 or higher.
You may use unleaded petrol with an octane rating of RON 91~94 / AKI 87~90 but it may result in slight performance reduction of the vehicle.
NEVER USE LEADED FUEL. The
use of leaded fuel is detrimental to the catalytic converter and will damage the engine control sys- tem’s oxygen sensor and affect emission control.
Never add any fuel system cleaning agents to the fuel tank other than what has been specified. (Consult a HYUNDAI authorised repairer for details.)
Never use gasohol which contains methanol. Discontinue use of any gasohol product which impairs dri- vability.
Do not "top off" after the nozzle automatically shuts off when refuelling.
Always check that the fuel cap is installed securely to prevent fuel spillage in the event of an acci- dent.
Petrol containing alcohol and methanol
Gasohol, a mixture of petrol and ethanol (also known as grain alcohol), and petrol or gasohol containing methanol (also known as wood alcohol) are being mar- keted along with or instead of leaded or unleaded petrol.
Do not use gasohol containing more than 10% ethanol, and do not use petrol or gasohol containing any methanol. Either of these fuels may cause drivability prob- lems and damage to the fuel system.
Discontinue using gasohol of any kind if drivability problems occur.
Vehicle damage or drivability problems may not be covered by the manufactur- er’s warranty if they result from the use of:
Gasohol containing more than 10% ethanol.
Petrol or gasohol containing methanol.
Leaded fuel or leaded gasohol. (except for vehicle designed to use leaded petrol for some countries)
Use of MTBE
HYUNDAI recommends avoiding fuels containing MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) over 15.0% vol. (Oxygen Content 2.7% weight) in your vehicle.
Fuel containing MTBE over 15.0% vol. (Oxygen Content 2.7% weight) may reduce vehicle performance and produce vapour lock or hard starting.
The New Vehicle Warranty does not cover damage to the fuel system and any performance problems caused by the use of fuels contain- ing methanol or fuels containing MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) over 15.0% vol. (Oxygen Content 2.7% weight).
Do not use methanol
Fuels containing methanol (wood alco- hol) should not be used in your vehicle. This type of fuel can reduce vehicle per- formance and damage components of the fuel system.
The New Vehicle Warranty does not cover damage to the fuel system and performance problems caused by the use of methanol or fuels con- taining methanol.
Fuels for cleaner air
To help contribute to cleaner air, HYUNDAI recommends use of fuels treated with detergent additives, which help to prevent deposit formation in the engine. These fuels will help the engines run cleaner and increase the Emission Control System performance.
Operation in foreign countries
Drivers of vehicles which are to be oper- ated in foreign countries must satisfy themselves that:
The vehicle meets all local regulations with respect to insurance, specifica- tions etc..
The correct types and grades of fuel are available for satisfactory operation of the vehicle.
VEHICLE RUN-IN PROCESS
No special run-in period is needed. By following a few simple precautions for the first 600 miles (1,000 km) you may add to the performance, economy and life of your vehicle.
Do not race the engine.
Whilst driving, keep your engine speed (rpm, or revolutions per minute) between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm.
Do not maintain a single speed for long periods of time, either fast or slow. Varying engine speed is needed to properly run-in the engine.
Avoid hard stops, except in emergen- cies, to allow the brakes to seat prop- erly.
Don't let the engine idle longer than 3 minutes at one time.
Don't tow a trailer/caravan during the first 1,200 miles (2,000 km) of opera- tion.
