Ford Fusion
Litho in U.S.A.
Your fuel tank can accommodate approximately
17.5 gallons (66.2 L) of gasoline. Your vehicle
is designed to use unleaded gasoline with
an (R+M)/2 octane rating of 87. Using
gasoline with a lower octane rating may
degrade performance.
The fuel pump shut-off switch stops the electric
fuel pump from sending fuel to your engine
when your vehicle has sustained a substantial
jolt. The switch is located in the passenger’s
footwell, by the kick panel. For more information
regarding the fuel pump shut-off switch, refer
to the Roadside Emergencies chapter of your
Owner’s Guide.
Your vehicle’s tire
pressure specifications are found on the
vehicle’s Safety Compliance Certification Label
located on the driver’s door jamb. Check your
tires for proper air pressure monthly; Use a tire
gauge to check the tire inflation pressure,
including the spare tire (if equipped), at least
monthly and before long trips. Always use an
accurate tire pressure gauge. Check the tire
pressure when tires are cold, after the vehicle
has been parked for at least three hours or has
been driven less than three miles. (As you drive,
the temperature in the tire warms up,
increasing the tire pressure.) Improperly
inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and
can fail suddenly, resulting in a possible loss of
vehicle control. Refer to the Tires, Wheels and
Loading chapter in the Owner’s Guide for
further information.
If the vehicle’s electrical components
are not operating, a fuse may have blown. The
fuse panel is located below the instrument
panel on the driver’s side; remove the cover to
view the fuses. Additional fuses are located in
the power distribution box in the engine
compartment. For more information regarding
changing fuses, refer to the Roadside
Emergencies chapter of your Owner’s Guide.
TOOLS The spare tire and jack are located in
the trunk below the carpeted floor panel. The
necessary tools are contained in the tool bag.
For complete details on how to change your
