Automotive fuels can cause serious injury, and even death if misused.
Methanol/unleaded fuel blends, even in small amounts, can cause blindness and possible death if swallowed. Additionally, take precautions to prevent methanol from coming into contact with the skin.
GAS STATION SAFETY
Petroleum gases are highly inflammable and, in confined spaces, are also extremely explosive.
Always place portable gasoline containers on the ground while filling. A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a container that is inside a vehicle or on a truck bed. You could be burned!
Always take sensible precautions when refuelling:
Switch off the engine.
Do not smoke or introduce other ignition sources.
Switch off mobile phones.
Take care not to spill fuel.
Do not overfill the tank.
Do not fill gas cans in the vehicle.
Do not get back into your vehicle during refuelling.
Use only the hold-open latch provided on the gasoline pump. Never jam the latch open with some other object.
FUEL FILLING Gas station pumps are equipped with automatic cut-off sensing to avoid fuel spillage. Fill the tank SLOWLY until the filler nozzle automatically cuts-off the supply.
DO NOT attempt to fill the tank beyond this point or spillage could result due to expansion of the fuel.
The reduced diameter filler neck, accepts ONLY a narrow filler nozzle of the type found on pumps that supply UNLEADED fuel.
NOTE: Ensure the filler cap is fitted correctly after refuelling, otherwise the ‘Service engine soon’ warning light may illuminate.
EMPTY FUEL TANK
IMPORTANT INFORMATION DO NOT run the fuel tank dry!
Running the fuel tank dry could create an engine misfire capable of damaging the catalytic converter. It will also cause the ‘Service engine soon’ warning light to illuminate.
