I know I could look in the manual and it would probably say but for now I am trying to figure it out on my own. If anyone here has figured it out, don't tell us!

The right one probably just means "read the manual if you don't understand how to fill the tank or what kind of gas to use".


The left one... I have no idea. I guess I always assumed "20" was some sort of octane rating used in Korea, but really I'm not sure. Google turned up nothing.

It's a good thing they added that middle icon. I almost put windshield wiper fluid in there.

I think the 20 min. means you have to wait 20 minutes before driving after you fuel it so the car doesn't get cramps.

no the manual states that for PHEV you have 20 minutes between the moment you open the lid to the moment youfinish fill up... more than that it will lock the filling capability and you'll spill petrol on the floor.


the manual states this only for plugin hybrid

I just found that in the manual, as well. But I don't really understand what they're talking about.


"the fuel tank may shut off..." WTF does that mean?


"...causing fuel to overflow." Huh? What fuel? From the tank? From the nozzle?

for my understanding there is a valve in the pipe leading to the tank that shuts off after 20mn... kind of like a device to block thieves to syphon the tank by sliding a pipe in...
if it closes you cant steal fuel but neither put some in, hence the overflow


I might be wrong though... and why only on PHEV? no idea

Maybe it's to prevent fuel vapors from escaping if you forget to put the cap back on, which is perhaps more dangerous with PHEVs because of the high voltage spark potential when plugging it in.
