Forward Collision Alert
(FCA) System
If equipped, FCA may help avoid or
reduce the harm caused by
front-end crashes. FCA provides a
green indicator, V, when a vehicle
is detected ahead. This indicator
displays amber if you follow a

In Brief 27
The low tire pressure warning light
may come on in cool weather when
the vehicle is first started, and then
turn off as the vehicle is driven. This
may be an early indicator that the
tire pressures are getting low and
the tires need to be inflated to the
proper pressure.
The TPMS does not replace normal
monthly tire maintenance. Maintain
the correct tire pressures.
See Tire Pressure Monitor System

Fuel (Gasoline)
Regular Fuel
Use only unleaded gasoline rated
87 octane or higher in your vehicle.
Do not use gasoline with an octane
rating lower as it may result in
vehicle damage and lower fuel
economy. See Fuel (Gasoline)
0 244.
Fuel (Diesel)
Use of diesel fuel with ultra low
sulfur content (15 ppm, maximum) is
required. See Fuel for Diesel
Engines 0 246.
E85 or FlexFuel
No E85 or FlexFuel
Gasoline-ethanol fuel blends greater

Driving for Better Fuel
Economy
Driving habits can affect fuel
mileage. Here are some driving tips
to get the best fuel economy
possible.
. Avoid fast starts and accelerate
smoothly.
. Brake gradually and avoid
abrupt stops.
. Avoid idling the engine for long
periods of time.
. When road and weather
conditions are appropriate, use
cruise control.
. Always follow posted speed
limits or drive more slowly when
conditions require.
. Keep vehicle tires properly
inflated.
. Combine several trips into a
single trip.
. Replace the vehicle's tires with
the same TPC Spec number
molded into the tire's sidewall
near the size.
. Follow recommended scheduled
maintenance.
Diesel Particulate Filter
The diesel engine is equipped with
a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
that, by design, will filter or trap
particulates. The DPF is located in
the exhaust system.
Depending on a number of factors
monitored by the engine computer,
the DPF will need to be cleaned of
accumulated solids. When a
cleaning is needed, the engine
computer will initiate a cleaning
action by warming the exhaust gas
temperature. This feature has been
designed to operate automatically,
with limited operator involvement or
awareness.
Special DPF Driver Messages
If the vehicle is used for numerous
short trips or extended slow-speed
operation, the engine computer may
not be able to adequately heat up
the exhaust system to clean the
DPF effectively. The engine
computer has been designed to
continuously monitor the condition
of the DPF. When the engine
computer detects that the DPF is full
of particulates but the vehicle is
being operated in a manner that
does not allow effective automatic
DPF cleaning, a Driver Information
Center (DIC) message will display.
Page: 29
Chevrolet Cruze Owner Manual (GMNA-Localizing-U.S./Canada/Mexico-
11348462) - 2018 - crc - 5/15/17
In Brief 29
If the vehicle continues to be driven
in a manner that prevents effective
DPF cleaning, the DPF will become
plugged with particulates. If this
occurs, the engine computer will
turn on the service engine soon light
in the instrument cluster and a DIC
message will display. See Diesel
Particulate Filter 0 218, Engine
Power Messages 0 144, and Diesel
Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Warning Light
0 136.
Fuel
Use Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel
Fuel (ULSD)
Use Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel
(ULSD) only. The emission control
hardware used on the vehicle may
be damaged by using fuel with high
sulfur levels. Use only fuel that is
dispensed from pumps bearing the
ULSD label.
Do Not Use Low Sulfur Diesel
Fuel (LSD)
Do not use fuel that is dispensed
from pumps bearing the LSD label.
Do Not Use Non-Highway Fuel
Fuel labeled as off road or
non-highway is typically very high in
sulfur content and will damage the
emission control system.
Non-highway fuel is not intended for
use in on-highway vehicles.
In addition:
. Use the correct engine oil.
. Do not add gasoline to
diesel fuel.
. Do not modify the induction or
exhaust systems.
See Fuel for Diesel Engines 0 246
and Engine Oil 0 265.
Diesel Exhaust Fluid
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is used
with diesel engines to reduce the
amount of regulated emissions
produced. The DEF system must be
maintained for the vehicle to run
properly. It is normal to hear the
DEF system purge fluid back into
the tank after the vehicle is shut off.
Locating Diesel Exhaust Fluid
DEF can be purchased at a
Chevrolet dealer. It can also be
purchased at authorized vehicle
dealerships. Additionally, some
diesel fueling stations or retailers
may have DEF for purchase. For
vehicles with an active OnStar
service plan, OnStar can help to
locate a DEF retailer. See Customer
Assistance Offices 0 369 for phone
numbers to assist you in contacting
a GM dealer. See Recommended
Fluids and Lubricants 0 359.
As the DEF tank becomes low on
fluid, warnings begin with
approximately 1 600 km (1,000 mi)
of remaining range. These warnings
will increase in intensity as the tank
becomes empty. Once the tank is
empty, the vehicle speed will be
limited. If there is an issue with the
quality of the fluid or the exhaust
fluid system, warnings will be
displayed in the Driver Information
Center (DIC). See Diesel Exhaust
Fluid 0 219.

moved out of the RUN position.
This could be caused by heavy
items hanging from the key ring,
or by large or long items attached

deploy. To reduce the risk of
unintentional rotation of the
ignition key, do not change the
way the ignition key and Remote
Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter,
if equipped, are connected to the
provided key rings.
If the vehicle is equipped with a
keyed ignition, the ignition key, key
rings, and RKE transmitter,
if equipped, are designed to work
together. As a system, they reduce
the risk of unintentionally moving
the key out of the RUN position.
If replacements or additions are
required, see your dealer. Limit
added items to a few essential keys
or small, light items no larger than
an RKE transmitter.
Interference from radio-frequency
identification (RFID) tags may
prevent the key from starting the
vehicle. Keep RFID tags away from
the key when starting the vehicle.
The key that is part of the RKE
transmitter can be used for the
ignition and all locks if the vehicle is
a Key Access vehicle. If the vehicle
has the keyless ignition, the key can
be used for the locks.

the ignition on; the key is
learned and all previously
known keys will no longer work
with the vehicle.
6. To learn a second key, turn the
ignition off, insert the second
key to be learned, and turn the
ignition on.
After two keys are learned,
remaining keys can be learned by
