Peugeot 2008: Practical information / Refuelling

Fuel tank capacity: approximately 44 litres (Petrol) or 41 litres (Diesel).

Reserve level: approximately 5 litres.

Low fuel level

Peugeot 2008. Refuelling When the low fuel level is reached, this warning lamp comes on on the instrument panel, accompanied by an onscreen message and an audible signal. When it first comes on, about 5 litres of fuel remain.

Until sufficient fuel is added, this warning lamp appears every time the ignition is switched on, accompanied by an onscreen message and an audible signal. When driving, this message and audible signal are repeated with increasing frequency as the fuel level drops towards 0.

You must refuel as soon as possible to avoid running out of fuel.

For more information on Running out of fuel (Diesel), refer to the corresponding section.

Peugeot 2008. Refuelling Stop & Start

Never refuel with the engine in STOP mode; you must switch off the ignition.

Refuelling

When refuelling, at least 5 litres must be added in order to be registered by the fuel gauge.

Opening the filler cap may create a noise caused by an inrush of air. This vacuum is entirely normal, resulting from the sealing of the fuel system.

To refuel in complete safety:

  • Always switch off the engine.

  • With the vehicle unlocked, press the rear-central part of the filler flap to open it.
  • Take care to select a pump that delivers the correct fuel type for the vehicle's engine (see a reminder label on the inside of the filler flap).
  • Turn the filler cap to the left.
  • Remove the filler cap and hang it on its carrier (on the filler flap).
  • Introduce the filler nozzle and push it in as far as possible before starting to refuel (to minimise the risk of splashing).
  • Fill the tank.

Do not continue after the nozzle’s third cut-out. Doing so may cause malfunctions.

  • Refit the filler cap.
  • Turn it to the right.
  • Push the fuel filler flap to close it.

Peugeot 2008. Refuelling If you have put in the wrong fuel for the vehicle, you must have the fuel tank drained and filled with the correct fuel before starting the engine.

The vehicle is fitted with a catalytic converter, which helps to reduce the level of harmful emissions in the exhaust gases.

For petrol engines, you must use unleaded fuel.

The filler neck is narrower, admitting unleaded petrol nozzles only.
