3. Never attempt to start a siphon by mouth.
4. Store fuel in approved safetycantype containers only. These containers are usually color coded and marked for a particular type of fuel. For instance, gasoline storage containers are usually red and marked "gasoline." Kerosene containers are usually blue.
5. Dispose of waste fuel properly. Never pour fuel onto the ground or into storm drains, septic tanks, sewers, etc.
Gas Fuels (Propane, Butane, Natural Gas, etc)
1. Always wear gloves and safety eyewear when fueling.
2. Remain with the filling vehicle at all times.
3. As fueling is taking place, watch the fixed liquid level valve. Release the handle as soon as a white fog-like stream is expelled from the valve. Do not overfill.
4. In the event of a gas leak, vehicle collision or fire, close the Liquid Service Valve located on the propane tank itself by turning it in a clockwise direction (if it is safe to do so).
5. Never park propane powered vehicles in an enclosed structure without approval from the fire department.
