Operating Your Porsche in other Countries
Government regulations in the United States and Canada require that automobiles meet specific emission regulations and safety standards. Therefore, cars built for the U.S. and Canada differ from vehicles sold in other countries.
If you plan to take your Porsche outside the continental limits of the United States or Canada, there is the possibility that:
Porsche cannot be responsible for the mechanical damage that could result because of inadequate fuel, service or parts availability.
If you purchased your Porsche abroad and want to bring it back home, be sure to find out about shipping and forwarding requirements, as well as current import and customs regulations.
When the ignition is on, the fuel level is displayed on the instrument panel.

Fuel recommendations gasoline engine
Your Porsche is equipped with catalytic converters and must use UNLEADED FUEL WITHOUT METALLIC ADDITIVES ONLY.
Your engine is designed to provide optimum performance and fuel economy using unleaded premium fuel with an octane rating of 98 RON/ 88 MON (93 CLC or AKI) (Cayenne S Hybrid: 95 RON/85 MON (90 CLC or AKI)). Porsche therefore recommends the use of these fuels in your vehicle.
Porsche also recognizes that these fuels may not always be available. Be assured that your vehicle will operate properly on unleaded premium fuels with octane numbers of at least 95 RON/ 85 MON (90 CLC or AKI) (Cayenne S Hybrid: 91 RON/82.5 MON (87 CLC or AKI)), since the engine’s "Electronic Oktane™ knock control" will adapt the ignition timing, if necessary.
If fuels of less than 95 RON/85 MON (90 CLC or AKI) (Cayenne S Hybrid: 91 RON/ 82.5 MON (87 CLC or AKI)) are used however, this could reduce performance and increase fuel consumption.
