Use of some additional or non-standard equipment (wide wheels, air central air, the trailer etc.) promotes increase of fuel consumption and decrease in the maximum speed of movement of the car.
For the first several thousand kilometers of run of the new car a little increased fuel consumption connected with a prirabotka of internal components of the engine and transmission is characteristic.

CHOICE OF GRADES OF FUEL

Petrol engines

Quality of gasoline filled in the car makes essential impact on efficiency of return of the engine and engine service life. Different application of additives to fuel has an important role also. Try to fill the car only fuel of the first-rate quality in which structure all necessary additives and additives are included.
Fuel use with too low octane number leads to detonation emergence
For filling of cars of the Opel Frontera brand it is necessary to use gasoline with high octane number.

Remark

The design of a mouth of the models intended for filling by exclusively unleaded fuel such is that in it does not climb through the refueling gun of a column with etilirovanny gasoline.

Considered models are equipped automatic an octane proof-reader of a corner of an advancing of ignition depending on type of filled fuel.
Try to fill the car fuel with octane number not below 95.

Diesel models

Filling of diesel models should be made only qualitative diesel fuel which is meeting the requirements of the DIN EN 590 standard. At all do not apply to car filling the fuel intended for use in sea diesel engines, fuel oil and so forth oil fuel.
Use by winter of usual diesel fuel is unacceptable in view of the crystallization in it of paraffin leading to a contamination of nozzles and the fuel filter. When using firm winter diesel fuel addition to it any temperature additives in cold weather is not required. For successful application by winter of summer diesel fuel in it it is necessary to add a little kerosene or to use special additives.
Remark

Already crystallizing paraffin does not give in to dissolution.
For use of summer diesel fuel in the conditions of ambient temperature from 0°С to - 15°С, it is necessary to dilute it with kerosene in a proportion 80/20. At air temperatures in a range from - 15°С to - 25°С in the same proportions it is necessary to add kerosene in winter diesel fuel.

FEATURES OF THE POWER SUPPLY SYSTEM OF DIESEL MODELS

At a devastation of a fuel tank of diesel models before engine start after filling it is necessary to remove air from a power supply system. If possibility to address for the help in dealer office or service center of the Opel company is absent, act in the following order:

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Fill the car with diesel fuel.
2. A screw-driver on a half of turn release the gate of pumping of the fuel filter.
3. Slowly and evenly turn the pumping pump manually until via the gate of pumping there is a free fuel from bubbles.
4. Tighten the gate.
5. Several times turn the pumping pump manually that fuel is guaranteed reached TNVD, - at the same time check, whether there are no signs of external leaks.

It is necessary to delete accumulating moisture from the fuel filter of a power supply system of the diesel engine periodically. This procedure is usually made at the same time with replacement of the oil filter. At car operation in the conditions of the increased humidity, extreme temperatures or strong temperature differences between day and night values, check of the fuel filter should be made whenever possible more often.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Release on one turn a plastic drain stopper from below on assembly of the filter and merge water.
2. If water does not leave the filter samoteky, shake manually the pumping pump (as at removal from air system).

ADDITIONAL DATA ON OPERATION OF DIESEL MODELS WITH THE TURBO-SUPERCHARGING

For a quality assurance of greasing of bearings of a turbokompressor it is necessary to adhere to the following service regulations of the diesel models equipped with a turbo-supercharging:
  – Try not to allow long idle times of the engine;
  – Do not begin car operation, without having warmed up the engine enough;
  – At end of a long trip with big speeds or high loads of the engine before shutdown of the last it is necessary to allow to it to work for some time on single turns:
     • at speed on a route over 80 km/h (50 miles/h) = 30 seconds
     • at speed over 100 km/h (60 miles/h) = 60 seconds
     • at movement in the mountain district or long movement with a speed over 100 km/h = 120 seconds
