Refueling— —Refueling precaution When refueling, you must use a special nozzle ANSI/AGA NGV−1−1994 standards. There are three types of nozzles. Use a P36 type nozzle for this vehicle. If a P36 nozzle is not available at a nearby CNG station, you may use another type of nozzle, but you cannot expect to get a completely full tank with it. For your safety, ask and follow the in- structions at the refueling station when refueling. Before starting to refuel, wipe off mud or dirt that may be deposited around the fuel receptacle. You will hear a chattering noise from the tank when it is being filled, but this is quite normal. If you hear fuel leaking from the fuel re- ceptacle, stop refueling immediately and have your authorized Toyota CNG dealer check the fuel receptacle. For information on CNG stations, refer to the station “Refueling station information” on page iii in the beginning of this manu- al.

5. Refueling will stop automatically when the tank is full. When discon- necting the filling nozzle, follow the instructions of the refueling station. Reverse the procedure to disconnect the nozzle after filling the tank. When disconnecting the filling nozzle, you may hear a brief hissing sound as a small amount of fuel escapes, but this is nor- mal.

3. Fit the filling nozzle securely on the

fuel receptacle.

There are various types of filling nozzles so follow the instructions at each CNG station.

4. Turn the valve

D While adjusting the seat, do not put your hands under the seat or near the moving parts. You may catch and injure your hands or fingers.

D Do not drive the vehicle unless the occupants are properly seated. Do top of a not allow sitting on folded−down seatback, or the luggage compartment. Persons not properly seated and/or properly re- strained by seat belts can be se- verely injured in the event of emer- gency braking or a collision.

D During driving, do not allow pas- to stand up or move sengers around between seats. Severe inju- ries can occur in the event of emer- gency braking or a collision.

D Adjustments should not be made while the vehicle is moving, as the seat may unexpectedly move and cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

D When adjusting the seat, be careful not to hit the seat against a pas- senger or luggage.

D After adjusting the seat position, try sliding it forward and backward to make sure it is locked in posi- tion.

D After adjusting the seatback, exert body pressure to make sure it is locked in position.

D Do not put objects under the seats. The objects may interfere with the seat−lock mechanism or unexpect- edly push up the seat position ad- justing lever; the seat may suddenly move, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

CAUTION

To reduce the risk of sliding under the lap belt during a collision, avoid reclining the seatback any more than needed. The seat belts provide maxi- mum protection in a frontal or rear collision when the driver and the pas- senger are sitting up straight and well back If you are reclined, the lap belt may slide past your hips and apply restraint forces directly to the abdomen. Therefore, in the event of a frontal collision, the risk of personal injury may increase with increasing recline of the seat- back.

Front head restraint only—You can also move the head restraint forward or back- ward. If such adjustment is desired, pull or push on the top of the head restraint. The head restraint is most effective when it is close to your head. Therefore, using a cushion on the seatback is not recom- mended.

Seat belts— —Seat belt precautions Toyota strongly urges that the driver and passengers in the vehicle be properly re- strained at all times with the seat belts provided. Failure to do so could increase the chance of injury and/or the severity of injury in accidents. Child. Use a child restraint system ap- propriate for the child until the child be- comes large enough to properly wear the vehicle’s seat belts. See “Child restraint” for details. If a child is too large for a child restraint system, the child should sit in the rear seat and must be restrained using the vehicle’s seat belt. According to accident statistics, the child is safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. If a child must sit in the front seat, the seat belts should be worn properly. If an accident occurs and the seat belts are not worn properly, the force of the rapid infla- tion of the airbag may cause death or serious injury to the child.

D Keep the belts clean and dry.

If they need cleaning, use a mild soap solution or lukewarm water. Never use bleach, dye, or abrasive clean- ers—they may severely weaken the belts. (See “Cleaning the interior” in Section 5.)

D Replace the belt assembly (includ- ing bolts) if it has been used in a severe impact. The entire assembly should be replaced even if damage is not obvious.

Do not allow the child to stand up or kneel on either rear or front seats. An unrestrained child could suffer serious in- jury or death during emergency braking or a collision. Also, do not let the child sit on your lap. It does not provide sufficient restraint. Pregnant woman. Toyota recommends the use of a seat belt.

in their seats Persons should ride their seat belts properly wearing whenever is moving. Otherwise, they are much more likely to suffer serious bodily injury or death in the event of sudden braking or a collision. When using the seat belts, observe the following: D Use the belt for only one person at a time. Do not use a single belt for two or more people—even children. D Avoid reclining the seatbacks too much. The seat belts provide maxi- mum protection when the seatbacks are in the upright position. (Refer to the seat adjustment instructions.) D Be careful not to damage the belt webbing or hardware. Take care that they do not get caught or pinched in the seat or doors.

D Inspect the belt system periodically. Check for cuts, fraying, and loose parts. Damaged parts should be re- placed. Do not disassemble or modify the system.

—Front seat belts and rear outside seat belts

If the seat belt cannot be pulled out of the retractor, firmly pull the belt and release it. You will then be able to smoothly pull the belt out of the retractor. When a passenger’s shoulder belt is com- pletely extended and retracted even slightly, the belt is locked in that position and cannot be extended. This fea- ture is used to hold the child restraint system securely. (For details, see “Child restraint” in this section.) To free the belt again, fully retract the belt and then pull the belt out once more.
