Fueling Operations (Gasoline/Diesel)
- Turn off your engine.
- Smoking is prohibited. Extinguish all sources of open flame and allow them to cool before entering the fuel islands.
- Never place an object to block open the nozzle and walk away from the vehicle. Overfilling may result.
- Stand upwind of the nozzle while refueling and try not to breathe the fumes.
- Do not top off your tank. Even little drips that fall onto the pavement can contaminate soil, groundwater or surface water.
- Do not leave your vehicle unattended while the pump is running.
- Do not fill containers while in the bed of a pick-up truck that is protected by any type of bed liner. To eliminate any chance of explosion caused by static electricity, containers must be put on the ground.
- Never attempt to start a siphon by mouth.
- Store fuel in approved 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 blue.
- Dispose of waste fuel properly. Never pour fuel onto the ground, or into storm drains, septic tanks, or sewers.
Fueling Operations (Propane)
- Always wear gloves and safety goggles when fueling.
- Remain with the filling vehicle at all times.
- NEVER place an object to block open the fill nozzle and walk away from the vehicle. Overfilling will result.
- SMOKING IS PROHIBITED. Extinguish all sources of open flame and allow them to cool before entering the fuel islands.
- 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.
- IN THE EVENT OF A PROPANE 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.)
- Never park propane powered vehicles in any enclosed structure without prior approval from the WBSF Fire Department (x4-3333
