WARNINGS:
This procedure involves fuel additive handling. Be prepared for fuel additive spillage at all times and
always observe fuel handling precautions. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal
injury.
Eye, hand, ear protection and protective clothing are required to be worn during any general service
or removal and installation procedures of fuel additive system components. Failure to follow this
instruction may result in personal injury.
In case of fuel additive fluid contact with the skin or the eyes, flush immediately with water for a
minimum of 15 minutes and seek prompt medical attention. Failure to follow these instructions may
result in personal injury.
If fuel additive fluid is swallowed, call a physician immediately. Rinse mouth immediately with water,
do not induce vomiting. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.
Always provide adequate ventilation when working on the fuel additive fluid system or related
components. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.
Do not smoke or carry lighted tobacco or open flame of any type when working on or near any fuel
related components. Highly flammable vapors are always present and may ignite. Failure to follow these
instructions may result in personal injury.
CAUTIONS:
Make sure the workshop area in which the vehicle is being worked on is as clean and as dust free as
possible. Foreign matter from work on clutches, brakes or from machining or welding operations can
contaminate the fuel system and may result in later malfunction.
After the filling procedure has taken place, make sure the fuel additive refill kit and pipes are stored
in a dry and secure area away from dirt. Foreign matter from work on clutches, brakes or from machining
or welding operations can contaminate the fuel additive fluid.

5. Remove the fuel additive tank filler pipe quick release coupling
blanking cap.
Release the locking tang.
6. NOTE: Make sure the fuel additive tank filling kit additive
container is positioned lower than the fuel additive tank.
NOTE: Make sure the fuel additive tank filling kit additive
container valve is in the closed position.
Connect the fuel additive tank filling kit filler pipe to the fuel
additive tank filler pipe.
7. Attach the fuel additive tank filling kit hook, net and overflow
container to the underside of the vehicle.
Insert the additive tank filling kit overflow pipe into the
overflow container.
8. NOTE: Make sure that the fuel additive tank filling kit is
maintained in a horizontal position.
Using a suitable transmission jack, raise the fuel additive tank
filling kit additive container above the fuel additive tank.
9. CAUTION: Do not allow air to enter the fuel additive
filler pipe.
NOTE: Make sure the fuel additive tank filling kit additive
container is positioned above the fuel additive tank.
NOTE: Make sure the fuel additive tank filling kit additive
container valve is in the open position.
NOTE: If the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container
empties during the filling procedure. Close the fuel additive
tank filling kit additive container valve, lower the fuel
additive tank filling kit additive container and disconnect the
filling pipe. Connect the filling pipe to the new fuel additive
tank filling kit additive container, raise the fuel additive tank
filling kit additive container and then open the fuel additive
tank filling kit additive container valve and continue to fill the
fuel additive tank.
Open the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container valve and
fill the fuel additive tank until fuel additive fluid is seen escaping
from the fuel additive tank overflow pipe.
1. Close the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container
valve.
10. Lower the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container below
the fuel additive tank to stop the flow of fuel additive fluid.

valve to allow the fuel additive fluid to drain back to the
fuel additive tank filling kit additive container.
11. NOTE: Make sure the fuel additive tank filling kit additive
container is positioned below the fuel additive tank.
Disconnect the fuel additive tank filling kit filler pipe from the fuel
additive tank filler pipe.
Close the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container
valve.
12. Install the fuel additive tank filler pipe quick release coupling
blanking cap.
13. Remove the fuel additive refill kit overflow pipe from the fuel
additive tank.
Allow the fuel additive fluid to drain back to the fuel
additive tank filling kit additive container.
14. Install the fuel additive tank overflow pipe quick release coupling
blanking cap.
15. Lower the vehicle.
16. Connect the fuel additive tank filling kit filler pipe to the fuel
additive tank filling kit overflow pipe using the double nipple.
1. Open the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container
overflow valve to allow the additive fluid to drain back to
the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container.
17. CAUTION: After the filling procedure has taken place,
make sure the fuel additive tank filling kit additive container
and pipes remain connected together and are stored in a dry
and secure area away from dirt. Foreign matter from work
on clutches, brakes or from machining or welding operations
can contaminate the fuel additive fluid.

NOTE: If the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) and or the
powertrain control lamp (PCL) are illuminated, driven by an
empty or low level additive tank, the fuel additive system
must be reset using the diagnostic tool. If neither the MIL or
PCL lamps are illuminated in the instrument cluster the fuel
additive system can be reset manually.
Reset fuel additive system using Ford Diagnostic Tool.
