Renault Koleos Owners Manual: Fuel tank

Fuel tank

Useful capacity of fuel tank:

  • Approximately 60 litres for all models;

To open the cover A, pull the control 1.

Use the cap holder 3 on the flap A during filling to hold the cap 2 in place.

After filling, check that the cap and cover are closed.

Fuel tank

Fuel grade

Use a high-grade fuel that complies with the legislation in force in each country and which must comply with the specifications given on the label on the cover A.

Petrol version It is essential to use unleaded petrol.

The octane rating (RON) must comply with the information given on the label on the cover A.

Diesel version Only use diesel fuel which complies with the information on the label located inside the cover A.

Do not mix even small amounts of petrol (unleaded or E85) with diesel.

Do not use ethanol-based fuel if your vehicle is not compatible with this fuel.

Do not add additive to the fuel - otherwise you risk damaging the engine.


Fuel filler cap: this is specific. If you have to replace it, make sure it is identical to the original cap. Contact an approved Dealer.

Never place the cap near a source of heat or flame.

Do not wash the filler area with a high-pressure washer.

Filling with fuel

With the ignition off, insert the nozzle and insert it fully before turning it on to fill the fuel tank (risk of splashing).

Keep the nozzle in this position throughout the entire filling operation.

When the pump cuts out automatically at the end of the filling procedure, a maximum of two further filling attempts may be made, as there must be sufficient space in the fuel tank to allow for expansion.

Make sure that no water enters the fuel tank during filling. The cover A and its surround must remain clean.

Petrol versions Using diesel fuel will damage the antipollution system and may lead to a loss of warranty.

To ensure that the fuel tank is not filled with diesel fuel, the fuel tank filler neck consists of a restrictor fitted with a safety system which only allows a nozzle for petrol to be used (at the pump).

Vehicle fitted with the Stop and Start function

To fill up with fuel, the engine must be stopped (and not on standby): stop the engine .

Running out of fuel on diesel versions

Vehicles with key/remote control

  • Put the ignition key in "ON" position and wait for a few minutes before starting, to enable the fuel circuit to be primed;
  • turn the key to "START". If the engine does not start, repeat the procedure.
  • If the engine does not start after several attempts, please contact an authorised dealer.

Vehicles with RENAULT card

With the card RENAULT in the passenger compartment, press the start button 4 without pressing any of the pedals. Wait a few minutes before starting.

If the engine does not start after several attempts, please contact an authorised dealer.

No modifications whatsoever are permitted on any part of the fuel supply system (electronic units, wiring, fuel circuit, injectors, protective covers, etc.) as this may be dangerous (unless undertaken by qualified Network personnel).

  • stop the vehicle as soon as traffic conditions allow and switch off the ignition;
  • switch on the hazard warning lights and ask your passengers to leave the vehicle and stay clear of the traffic;
  • contact an approved Dealer.
