Lexus ES250 2023 Fuel Information User Manual

Introduction

The premium automobile division of the Japanese automaker Toyota, Lexus, produces the Lexus ES250, a sedan. I don’t have the specifics for the 2023 model, but I can give you some general knowledge about how fuel considerations apply to automobiles.

Fuel Type: Petrol is the preferred fuel type for the Lexus ES250. For optimum performance, it’s crucial to utilize the fuel type that the manufacturer has recommended. For further information on the precise fuel needs of the 2023 model, consult the user guide or get in touch with Lexus customer service. Petrol is available in a variety of octane ratings, often 87, 89, or 91. The suggested octane rating for the Lexus ES250 can be found in the owner’s manual or on the gasoline filler door.

Fuel Economy: Details on fuel efficiency, including projected miles per gallon (MPG) or litres per 100 kilometres (L/100km) for both city and highway driving, are included in the Lexus ES250 2023 user handbook. Depending on the road, the gasoline, and the individual driver, this can change.

Fuel Tank Capacity
The vehicle’s fuel tank capacity, or how much fuel it can contain, should be mentioned in the user handbook. Planning refuelling stops for lengthy journeys might be aided by the information provided.

Fuel Information

You must only use unleaded gasoline.
Select octane rating 87 (Research Octane Number 91) or higher. Use of unleaded gasoline with an octane rating lower than 87 may result in engine knocking. Persistent knocking can lead to engine damage.
At minimum, the gasoline you use should meet the specifications of ASTM D4814 in the U.S.A.

Gasoline quality
In very few cases, drivability problems may be caused by the brand of gasoline you are using. If drivability problems persist, try changing the brand of gasoline. If this does not correct the problem, consult your Lexus dealer.

Recommendation of the use of gasoline containing detergent additives

  •  Lexus recommends the use of gasoline that contains detergent additives to avoid the build-up of engine deposits.
  • All gasoline sold in the U.S.A. contains minimum detergent additives to clean and/or keep clean intake systems, per EPA’s lowest additives concentration program.
  •  Lexus strongly recommends the use of Top Tier Detergent Gasoline. For more information on Top Tier Detergent Gasoline and a list of marketers, please go to the official website www.toptiergas.com.

Recommendation of the use of low emissions gasoline
Gasolines containing oxygenates such as ethers and ethanol, as well as reformulated gasolines, are available in some cities. These fuels are typically acceptable for use, providing they meet other fuel requirements. Gasolines containing oxygenates such as ethers and ethanol, as well as reformulated gasolines, are available in some cities. These fuels are typically acceptable for use, providing they meet other fuel requirements.

Non-recommendation of the use of blended gasoline
Use only gasoline containing up to 15% ethanol. DO NOT use any flex-fuel or gasoline that could contain more than 15% ethanol, including from any pump labeled E30 (30% ethanol [ A ]), E50 (50% ethanol [ B ]), E85 (85% ethanol [ C ])(which are only some examples of fuel containing more than 15% ethanol).
Lexus ES250 2023 Fuel Information User Manual-02

  • If you use gasohol in your vehicle, be sure that it has an octane rating no lower than 87.
  • Lexus does not recommend the use of gasoline containing methanol.

Non-recommendation of the use of gasoline containing MMT
Some gasoline contains an octane enhancing additive called MMT (Methylcyclopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl). Lexus does not recommend the use of gasoline that contains MMT. If fuel containing MMT is used, your emission control system may be adversely affected. The malfunction indicator lamp on the instrument cluster may come on. If this hap-pens, contact your Lexus dealer for service.

If your engine knocks

  • Consult your Lexus dealer.
  • You may occasionally notice light knocking for a short time while accelerating or driving uphill. This is normal and there is no need for concern.

NOTICE
Notice on fuel quality

  • Do not use improper fuels. If improper fuels are used, the engine will be dam-aged.
  • Do not use leaded gasoline.
    Leaded gasoline can cause damage to your vehicle’s three-way catalytic converters causing the emission control system to malfunction.
  • Do not use gasohol other than the type previously stated.
    Other gasohol may cause fuel system damage or vehicle performance problems.
  •  Using unleaded gasoline with an octane number or rating lower than the level previously stated may cause persistent heavy knocking.
    At worst, this may lead to engine dam-age and will void the vehicle warranty.

Fuel-related poor drivability
If poor drivability (poor hot starting, vaporization, engine knocking, etc.) is encountered after using a different type of fuel, discontinue the use of that type of fuel.

When refueling with gasohol
Take care not to spill gasohol. It can damage your vehicle’s paint.

Uniform Tire Quality Grading
This information has been prepared in accordance with regulations issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation. It provides the purchasers and/or prospective purchasers of Lexus vehicles with information on uniform tire quality grading. Your Lexus dealer will help answer any questions you may have as you read this information.

DOT quality grades
All passenger vehicle tires must con-form to Federal Safety Requirements in addition to these grades. Quality grades can be found where applicable on the tire sidewall between tread shoulder and maximum section width. For example: Treadwear 200 Traction AA Temperature A

Treadwear
The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and a half (1 – 1/2) times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use. Performance may differ significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices and differences in road characteristics and climate.

Traction AA, A, B, C
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B and C, and they represent the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under con-trolled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance.
Warning: The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on braking (straight ahead) traction tests and does not include cornering (turning) traction.

Temperature A, B, C
The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. Grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109.
Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law.

Warning: The temperature grades of a tire assume that it is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combi-nation, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure.

Engine oil selection
“Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” is used in your Lexus vehicle. Use Lexus approved “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” or equivalent to satisfy the follow-ing grade and viscosity.
Oil grade:
ILSAC GF-6A multigrade engine oil
Recommended viscosity:
SAE 0W-20
SAE 0W-20 is the best choice for good fuel economy and good starting in cold weather.
If SAE 0W-20 is not available, SAE 5W-20 oil may be used. However, it must be replaced with SAE 0W-20 at the next oil change.

Outside temperature
Oil viscosity (0W-20 is explained here as an example):

  • The 0W in 0W-20 indicates the characteristic of the oil which allows cold storability. Oils with a lower value before the W allow for easier starting of the engine in cold weather.
  • The 20 in 0W-20 indicates the viscosity characteristic of the oil when the oil is at high temperature. An oil with a higher viscosity (one with a higher value) may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions.

How to read oil container label: The International Lubricant Specification Advisory Committee (ILSAC) Certification Mark is added to some oil containers to help you select the oil you should use.

Starting the engine when the battery is discharged
The engine cannot be started by push-starting.

To prevent battery discharge

  • Turn off the headlights and the audio system while the engine is stopped.
  • Turn off any unnecessary electrical components when the vehicle is running at a low speed for an extended period, such as in heavy traffic.

When the battery is removed or discharged

  • Information stored in the ECU is cleared. When the battery is depleted, have the vehicle inspected at your Lexus dealer.
    Some systems may require initialization.
    ( P.415)
    When removing the battery terminals When the battery terminals are removed, the information stored in the ECU is cleared. Before removing the battery terminals, contact your Lexus dealer.

Charging the battery
The electricity stored in the battery will dis-charge gradually even when the vehicle is not in use, due to natural discharge and the draining effects of certain electrical appliances. If the vehicle is left for a long time, the battery may discharge, and the engine may be unable to start. (The battery recharges automatically during driving.)

When recharging or replacing the battery

In some cases, it may not be possible to unlock the doors using the smart access system with push-button start when the battery is discharged. Use the wireless remote control or the mechanical key to lock or unlock the doors.
The engine may not start on the first attempt after the battery has recharged but will start normally after the second attempt. This is not a malfunction.
The engine switch mode is memorized by the vehicle. When the battery is reconnected, the system will return to the mode it was in before the battery was dis-charged. Before disconnecting the battery, turn the engine switch off.
If you are unsure what mode the engine switch was in before the battery dis-charged, be especially careful when reconnecting the battery.

When replacing the battery

  • Use a battery that conforms to European regulations.
    Use a battery that the case size is same as the previous one (LN3), 20 hour rate capacity (20HR) is equivalent (70Ah) or greater, and performance rating (CCA) is equivalent (592A) or greater.

    • If the sizes differ, the battery cannot be properly secured.
    • If the 20 hour rate capacity is low, even if the time period where the vehicle is not used is a short time, the battery may dis-charge and engine may not be able to start.
  • For details, consult your Lexus dealer.

WARNING
When removing the battery terminals
Always remove the negative (-) terminal first. If the positive (+) terminal contacts any metal in the surrounding area when the positive (+) terminal is removed, a spark may occur, leading to a fire in addition to electrical shocks and death or serious injury.

Avoiding battery fires or explosions
Observe the following precautions to prevent accidentally igniting the flammable gas that may be emitted from the battery:

  • Make sure each jumper cable is connected to the correct terminal and that it is not unintentionally in contact with any other than the intended terminal.
    Do not allow the other end of the jumper cable connected to the “+” terminal to come into contact with any other parts or metal surfaces in the area, such as brackets or unpainted metal.
    Do not allow the + and – clamps of the jumper cables to come into contact with each other.
    Do not smoke, use matches, cigarette lighters or allow open flame near the battery.

Battery precautions
The battery contains poisonous and corrosive acidic electrolyte, while related parts contain lead and lead compounds. Observe the following precautions when handling the battery:

  • When working with the battery, always wear safety glasses and take care not to allow any battery fluids (acid) to come into contact with skin, clothing or the vehicle body.
    Do not lean over the battery.

WARNING

  • In the event that battery fluid comes into contact with the skin or eyes, immediately wash the affected area with water and seek medical attention. Place a wet sponge or cloth over the affected area until medical attention can be received.
    Always wash your hands after handling the battery support, terminals, and other battery-related parts.
    Do not allow children near the battery.

When replacing the battery
When the vent plug and indicator are close to the hold down clamp, the battery fluid (sulfuric acid) may leak.

NOTICE
When handling jumper cables
When connecting the jumper cables, ensure that they do not become entangled in the cooling fan or engine drive belt.

If your vehicle overheats
The following may indicate that your vehicle is overheating.

  • The engine coolant temperature gauge (P.68, 71) is in the red zone or a loss of engine power is experienced. (For example, the vehicle speed does not increase.)
    “Engine Coolant Temp High Stop in a Safe Place See Owner’s Manual” is shown on the multi-information display.

  • Stop your vehicle in a safe place as soon as possible. Check and adjust the tire inflation pressure immediately.
  • If the tire pressure warning light comes on even after tire inflation pressure adjustment, it is probable that you have a flat tire. Check the tires. If a tire is flat, change it with the spare tire and have the flat tire repaired by the nearest Lexus dealer.
  •  Avoid abrupt maneuvering and braking.
    If the vehicle tires deteriorate, you could lose control of the steering wheel or the brakes.

If a blowout or sudden air leakage should occur
The tire pressure warning system may not activate immediately.

Maintenance of the tires
Each tire, including the spare (if pro-vided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label (tire and load information label). (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label [tire and load information label], you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)

WARNING
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS-tire pressure warning system) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale (tire pressure warning light) when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale (tire pressure warning light) illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability. Please note that the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale (tire pressure warning light).
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction indicator is cobined with the low tire pressure telltale (tire pressure warning light). When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the mal-function indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended.
TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) to continue to function properly.

NOTICE
To ensure the tire pressure warning system operates properly
Do not install tires with different specifications or makers, as the tire pressure warning system may not operate properly.

The ES250’s Lane Keeping Assist is one of its most important driving assistance features. The device actively aids the driver in maintaining their lane by using a camera to detect lane markers on the road.

Driving Assist Systems

To keep driving safety and performance, the following systems operate automatically in response to various driving situations. Be aware, however, that these systems are supplementary and should not be relied upon too heavily when operating the vehicle.

Summary of the Driving Assist Systems

ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System)
Helps to prevent wheel lock when the brakes are applied suddenly, or if the brakes are applied while driving on a slippery road surface.

Brake Assist
Generates an increased level of braking force after the brake pedal is depressed when the system detects a panic stop situation.

VSC (Vehicle Stability Control)
Helps the driver to control skidding when swerving suddenly or turning on slippery road surfaces.

Enhanced VSC (Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control)
Provides cooperative control of the ABS, TRAC, VSC and EPS. Helps to maintain directional stability when swerving on slippery road sur-faces by controlling steering performance.

Secondary Collision Brake
When the SRS airbag sensor detects a collision and the system operates, the brakes and brake lights are automatically controlled to reduce the vehicle speed and help reduce the possibility of further damage due to a secondary collision.

TRAC (Traction Control)
Helps to maintain drive power and prevent the drive wheels from spinning when starting the vehicle or accelerating on slippery roads.

Active Cornering Assist (ACA)
Helps to prevent the vehicle from drifting to the outer side by performing inner wheel brake control when attempting to accelerate while turning.

Hill-Start Assist Control
Helps to reduce the backward movement of the vehicle when starting on an uphill.

Dynamic Torque Control AWD System (AWD Models)

WARNING
The ABS does not operate effectively when

  • The limits of tire gripping performance have been exceeded (such as excessively worn tires on a snow covered road).
  • The vehicle hydroplanes while driving at high speed on wet or slick roads.

Stopping distance when the ABS is operating may exceed that of normal conditions
The ABS is not designed to shorten the vehicle’s stopping distance. Always maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you, especially in the following situations:

    • When driving on dirt, gravel or snow-covered roads
    • When driving with tire chains
    • When driving over bumps in the road
    • When driving over roads with pot-holes or uneven surfaces

TRAC/VSC may not operate effectively when
Directional control and power may not be achievable while driving on slippery road surfaces, even if the TRAC/VSC system is operating. Drive the vehicle carefully in conditions where stability and power may be lost.

WARNING
Active Cornering Assist does not operate effectively when

    • Do not overly rely on Active Cornering Assist. Active Cornering Assist may not operate effectively when accelerating down slopes or driving on slippery road surfaces.
    • When Active Cornering Assist frequently operates, Active Cornering Assist may temporarily stop operating to ensure proper operation of the brakes, TRAC and VSC.

Hill-start assist control does not operate effectively when
Do not overly rely on hill-start assist control. Hill-start assist control may not operate effectively on steep inclines and roads covered with ice. Unlike the parking brake, hill-start assist control is not intended to hold the vehicle stationary for an extended period of time. Do not attempt to use hill-start assist control to hold the vehicle on an incline, as doing so may lead to an accident.
