Section 6: Maintenance

Filling the Fuel Tank Refer to Figure 6-4 on page 26

The fuel tank is located on the left side under the seat console. Total fuel capacity is 8 gallons.

When filling the fuel tank, place gear shift in 1st or reverse gear, set park brake, turn off engine and remove ignition key. Tilt seat console forward to access fuel tank. Clean dirt from around fuel cap, remove cap and begin filling. When finished, screw cap back on securely and wipe up any spilled gasoline. Use regular unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 87 or higher.

IMPORTANT: Never use methanol, gasoline containing methanol and/or gasohol containing more than 10% ethanol. These fuels can damage the vehicle’s fuel system. Do not mix oil with gasoline.

Using a fuel stabilizer/conditioner in the vehicle can provide benefits such as:

  • 1.

    Keeps gasoline fresh during storage of 90 days or less. The fuel tank should be emptied for longer storage.

  • 2.

    Cleans the engine during operation.

  • 3.

    Eliminates gum-like varnish build-up in the fuel system. IMPORTANT: Do not use fuel additives containing methanol or ethanol.

Fuel Filter and Fuel Line Maintenance

Refer to Figure 6-4 The fuel filter (Land Pride Part No. 831-031C) is installed in the fuel line between the fuel tank and engine and should be replaced annually. At the same time check the fuel line hoses for any cracks or leaks. Inspect and replace fuel filter and fuel lines as follows:

  • 1.

    Prepare vehicle for maintenance as outlined in steps 1-6 on page 22.

  • 2.

    Safely secure the seat console in the raised position.

  • 3.

    Following all Fuel Safety Cautions and Warnings, remove clamps securing the fuel filter and remove fuel filter for inspection.

  • 4.

    Check fuel filter for sediment and water accumulation. Check fuel lines for cracks and leaks.

  • 5.

    Replace damaged fuel lines with new ones.

  • 6.

    Replace fuel filter when sediment or water is present.

  • 7.

    Reattach fuel filter to fuel line with arrow on the filter pointing in the same direction fuel flows in the line. Fuel flows towards the engine.

Fuel Cap and Fuel Fill Opening

Add the correct amount of gas stabilizer/conditioner to the gas. Follow the gas stabilizer/conditioner manufacturer’s directions for best results.

Emptying the Fuel Tank

Never siphon a fuel tank by sucking on a hose with your mouth. Gasoline is a poison. Also fuel vapors and gas are harmful to your lungs and can permanently damage them. Always use a siphon pump.

Figure 6-4 8. Install hose clamps around fuel filter.

9. Start vehicle and inspect for fuel leaks along fuel line and fuel filter.

The fuel tank will need emptying when preparing for long term storage or replacing a damaged one.

10. Shut off vehicle and remove wheel chocks if used.
