NOTE:
  When the vehicle is left unattended for an extended period of time, water may accumulate in the fuel tank.
To prevent water condensation:
(1)  Top off the fuel tank or drain the fuel completely.
(2)   Drain water condensation from the fuel filter.
   Refilling the fuel tank.
Refill the fuel tank while there is still some fuel left in the tank.
   Protecting the fuel system against freezing and water condensation.
(1) Cold areas
In snow-covered areas, mountainous areas, skiing areas, etc. where ambient temperatures drop below 0C (32F) throughout the winter season, use an anti-freeze solution in the cool-
ing system. Refueling will also complement the effect of anti-freeze solution each time the fuel level drops to about one-half. After the winter season, drain water which may have accumulated in the fuel filter and fuel tank in the manner same as that described under Affected areas below. (2) Affected areas
When water condensation is notched in the fuel filter, drain water from both the fuel filter and fuel tank or use a water removing agent (or antifreeze solution) in the fuel tank. Observe the instructions, notes, etc., indicated on the label affixed to the anti-freeze solution (water removing agent) container before use.
