When working with gasoline, what steps can be taken to reduce fire hazards?
The only place where engine fuel and sparks should interact is in the combustion chamber. To reduce fire hazards:
- Never light a match or other flammable material near an engine.
- Avoid using power tools or other equipment that generates sparks where fuel vapors may be present.
- Allow the engine to cool before removing the fuel cap or filling the tank.
- Replace a fuel line or fitting if it is leaky or cracked.
- Keep gasoline, solvents and other flammables out of reach of children. Store gasoline in UL®-approved non-spill containers. Label flammable materials containers clearly for quick identification.
- Never smoke while using, servicing or refueling an engine.
