Handling Fuel Safely Fuel and fuel vapors are highly flammable: DO NOT refuel machine while you smoke, when machine is near an open flame or sparks, or when engine is running. STOP engine. Fill fuel tank outdoors.

Prevent fires: clean oil, grease and dirt from machine. Clean up spilled fuel immediately. Do not store machine with fuel in tank in a building where fumes may reach an open flame or spark. Handling Fuel Safely

Prevent fire and explosion caused by static electric discharge. Use only non-metal, portable fuel containers approved by the Underwriter's Laboratory (U.L.) or the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM). If using a funnel, make sure it is plastic and has no screen or filter. Static electric discharge can ignite gasoline vapors in an ungrounded fuel container. Remove the fuel container from the bed of a vehicle or the trunk of a car and place on the ground away from the vehicle before filling. Keep nozzle in contact with container opening while filling. When practical, remove equipment from trailers or truck beds and refuel them on the ground. If this is not possible, use a portable, plastic fuel container to refuel equipment on a truck bed or trailer.

Always operate vehicles in a safe and responsible manner Violators of safety rules are subject to disciplinary action.
