* The weight of the braked trailer can be increased, within the GTW limit, if

* The weight of the braked trailer can be increased, within the GTW limit, if the GVW of the towing vehicle is reduced by an equal amount. Warning: towing using a lightly loaded towing vehicle may have an adverse effect on its road holding.

The GTW and towed load values indicated are valid up to a maximum altitude of 1 000 metres; the towed load mentioned must be reduced by 10 % for each additional 1 000 metres of altitude. The speed of a towing vehicle must not exceed 60 mph (100 km/h) (comply with the legislation in force in your country).

High ambient temperatures may result in a reduction in the performance of the vehicle to protect the engine; if the ambient temperature is above 37 °C, limit the towed load.

(a) .../1: fi tted with low rolling resistance tyres to reduce consumption

(a) .../1: fi tted with low rolling resistance tyres to reduce consumption and emissions of CO2. The fuel consumption fi gures shown here correspond to the values communicated at the time of printing.

The fi gures for HDi with particle emissions fi lter (PEF) will be available during the year on the CITROËN SERVICE website.

These fuel consumption values were established in accordance with Directive 80/1268/CEE. They may vary depending on the style of driving, traffi c conditions, weather conditions, the load in the vehicle, the maintenance of the vehicle and the use of the vehicle equipment.

Quality of the fuel used for Diesel engines

The Diesel engines are perfectly compatible with biofuels which conform to current and future European standards (diesel fuel which complies with standard EN 590 mixed with a biofuel which complies with standard EN 14214) available at the pumps (containing up to 7 % Fatty Acid Methyl Ester).

The B30 biofuel can be used in certain Diesel engines; however, this use is subject to strict application of the special servicing conditions. Consult a CITROËN dealer.

The use of any other type of (bio)fuel (vegetable or animal oils, pure or diluted, domestic fuel...) is strictly prohibited (risk of damage to the engine and fuel circuit).
