Fuel in your new DS

Post by XES Owner » Sat May 05, 2018 1:00 am

I've searched this forum but can't see any previous posts.
When I collected my Jaguar, some three years ago, the retailer had (without any negotiation) fully filled the tank with no charge.
I'm using a different retailer for the DS (explained elsewhere in this forum) so I wondered, if during the last three years, policies had changed. I can and will, of course, ask before taking delivery (maybe I should have included this as part of the negotiation).
So, I'm curious, how much fuel was in the tank when you collected your car from the retailer.
Awaiting delivery of DS Si4 290 in Narvic Black. Anticipated 31/07/2018 - Hmm, now end of Septembert for a MY19 version @ MY18 price.

Mine were always full but it’s something that you can negotiate as the very final item on your list of things you want.

Hi, ask for a test drive before you accept it, then they'll have to put some fuel in it.

It isn’t down to the manufacturer, it is determined by the dealer, and that may change over time, or differ between customers. So there is no certainty, unless you raise the question during the order process.

The new DS I picked up yesterday had a full tank, but the new DS I picked up two years ago didn’t. Yesterday I also got some flowers (not two years ago), and a cake with reg no and my name on (nothing two years ago), plus a luxury boxed couple of LR key rings (not two years ago).

In Canada and maybe in the USA it is corperate policy to fill the tank at all dealers. Most other dealers do the same.
Have a 70 liter fuel tank but fuel is cheaper here. 🤔
