• Do not get back into a vehicle
once you have begun refueling
since you can generate static
electricity by touching, rubbing
or sliding against any item or fab-
ric (polyester, satin, nylon, etc.)
capable of producing static elec-
tricity. Static electricity discharge
can ignite fuel vapors resulting in
rapid burning. If you must re-
enter the vehicle, you should
once again eliminate potentially
dangerous static electricity dis-
charge by touching a metal part
of the vehicle, away from the fuel
filler neck, nozzle or other gaso-
line source.
When using an approved
portable fuel container, be sure to
place the container on the
ground prior to refueling. Static
electricity discharge from the
container can ignite fuel vapors
causing a fire. Once refueling has
begun, contact with the vehicle
should be maintained until the
filling is complete.

WARNING - Refueling dan-
gers
Automotive fuels are flammable
materials. When refueling, please
note the following guidelines care-
fully. Failure to follow these guide-
lines may result in severe personal
injury, severe burns or death by fire
or explosion.
Read and follow all warnings at
the gas station facility.
Before refueling note the location
of the Emergency Gasoline Shut-
Off, if available, at the gas station
facility.
Before touching the fuel nozzle,
you should eliminate potentially
dangerous static electricity dis-

part of the vehicle, a safe dis-
tance away from the fuel filler
neck, nozzle, or other gas source.

Gasoline vapors are dangerous.
Before refueling, always stop the
engine and never smoke or allow
sparks and open flames near the
filler area.
Never operate your vehicle with-
out a filler cap properly installed,
flammable vapors and gasoline
could leak out in dangerous situ-
ations such as a collision or
rollover. If the filler cap must be
replaced, only use genuine Kia
replacement parts.
Tighten the cap until it clicks one
time, otherwise the " "light will
illuminate.
