Oil Check  
We recommend that you check the engine oil level every time you refuel.  
Park the vehicle on level ground.  
Wait approximately three minutes after turning the engine off before you check the oil.

If the oil level is near or below the lower mark, slowly  
add oil, being careful not to overfill.  
1. Remove the dipstick (orange).  
2. Wipe the dipstick with a clean cloth or  
paper towel.  
3. Insert the dipstick back all the way into its  
hole.

The amount of oil consumed depends on how the  
vehicle is driven and the climatic and road conditions  
encountered. The rate of oil consumption can be up  
to 1 litre per 1,000 km/625 miles.  
Consumption is likely to be higher when the engine is  
new.
