  • Can my Nissan vehicle run on fuel containing ethanol?Open or Close

    Nissan vehicles manufactured from 1 January 2004 are capable of operating on ethanol blends of up to E10 (10% ethanol), providing the following conditions are met:

    • The fuel (including ethanol-blend), meets the requirements of the Australian Fuel Quality Standards,
    • A credible history of servicing as per Nissan's recommended service schedule can be shown, and
    • Blending the petroleum and ethanol components have been done properly, for example at a fuel refinery (ie there is no "splash"-blending of the fuel).

    Nissan vehicles manufactured before 1 January 2004 are capable of operating on ethanol-blended ULP, although Nissan does NOT recommend using ethanol-blended fuel in these vehicles.

  • Can my Nissan vehicle run on fuel containing biodiesel?Open or Close

    EN590, which the Australian Fuel Quality Standards (AFQS) are based, specifies that no more than 5% BIODIESEL be mixed to DIESEL fuel.

    Nissan specifies that only DIESEL be used in its diesel-engine vehicles.

  • Can my Nissan vehicle run on LPG?Open or Close

    Nissan does not manufacture, supply or source LPG equipment for its range of vehicles imported into Australia.

    LPG and petrol are quite different. Separate distinctions include combustion temperatures, consumption characteristics and exhaust emissions, just to name a few.

    Therefore, although capable of operating on LPG, Nissan does NOT recommend the use of LPG fuel in its petrol-engine vehicles.

    It should also be noted that Nissan does not warrant the installation of LPG systems to any of its vehicles nor is it responsible for any failure attributable to, or damage that results from, any such installation.
