ADDITIONAL
FEATURES
Easy Fuel™ ‘no cap’ fuel system
Your vehicle has a ‘no cap’ fuel system which allows
you to simply open the fuel filler door, insert the nozzle
and start fueling. The Easy Fuel™ System is self-sealing
and therefore protected against dust, dirt, water, snow
and ice. If you need to fill your fuel tank with a portable
fuel container, use the fuel funnel which is located
behind the second row driver seat, near the spare tire
tool box. Slowly insert the funnel into the Easy Fuel™
system and fill the tank with fuel from the container.
When done, clean the funnel or properly dispose of it.
Extra funnels can be purchased from your authorized
dealer. Do not use aftermarket funnels as they will
not work with the Easy Fuel™ system and may
cause damage.
Fuel Type / Tank Capacity / Flex Fuel
Your vehicle is equipped with either a 26 gallon
(98.4L) or a 36 gallon (136.2L) fuel tank. You may
have a Flex Fuel Vehicle. Flex Fuel vehicles have a
yellow ring around the top of the fuel filler inlet (tube)
and can use either Regular unleaded fuel, E85 Ethanol
Fuel or any mixture of the two. If you do not have a flex
fuel vehicle, then only use “Regular” unleaded gasoline
with an octane rating of 87. Do not use E85 fuels,
because your vehicle was not designed to run on fuels
with more than 10% ethanol.
Tire Pressure
Your tire pressure is properly set at the dealership
according to the recommended specifications found on
the Safety Compliance Certification Label or Tire Label
located on the B-Pillar or the edge of the driver’s door.
Check your tire pressure at least once a month and
before long trips (including the spare). As an added
safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with
a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that
when
illuminates a low tire pressure warning light
one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.
Improperly inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and
can fail suddenly, possibly resulting in loss of vehicle
control. Refer to the Tires, Wheels and Loading chapter
in your Owner’s Guide for more information.
Roadside Assistance
Your new Ford F-150 comes with the assurance and
support of 24-hour emergency roadside assistance.
Roadside assistance includes such services as:
lockout assistance, limited fuel delivery, battery jump
starts, changing a flat tire, towing, and winch out. To
receive roadside assistance in the United States, call
1 (800) 241-3673. In Canada, call 1 (800) 665-2006.
For more information on coverage period and details
of service, refer to your Roadside Assistance
information card.
Location of spare tire
If you get a flat tire while driving, do not apply the
brake heavily. Instead, gradually decrease your speed.
Hold the steering wheel firmly and slowly move to
a safe place on the side of the road. Your vehicle is
equipped with a temporary spare tire located under the
vehicle, just forward of the rear bumper. The temporary
spare is designed for emergency use only and should
be replaced as soon as possible. The jack and tools are
either located behind the interior trim on the passenger
side or under the rear seat on the driver’s side.
For complete details on how to change your tire,
refer to the Roadside Emergencies chapter in your
Owner’s Guide.
S.O.S. Post Crash Alert System
Your vehicle is equipped with the S.O.S. Post Crash
Alert system. This system provides audible and
visual alarms in the event of a crash which causes the
deployment of airbags or the activation of the safety
belt pretensioners. The turn signals will flash and the
horn will sound. To deactivate the system, press the
button on your
hazard flasher control, or the
remote transmitter.
