You could be burned or seriously injured if it is misused or mishandled.

Always stop the engine and do not smoke or allow open flames or sparks near the vehicle when refueling.

- Do not attempt to top off the fuel tank after the fuel pump nozzle shuts off automatically. Continued refueling may cause fuel overflow, resulting in fuel spray and possibly a fire.

An incorrect cap can result in a serious malfunction and possible injury. It could also cause the malfunction indicator light to come on.

Always place the container on the ground when filling.

Do not use electronic devices when filling.

Keep the pump nozzle in contact with the container while you are filling it.

Use only approved portable fuel containers for flammable liquid.
