Fuel is very flammable and can explode easily. To avoid serious injury or death, keep fuel
away from open fire and keep fire extinguisher within easy reach when working with fuel.
Do not work on fuel system when engine is hot. Fuel can be ignited by hot engine.
Pressure of the fuel in fuel lines is sufficient to penetrate the skin and cause injury to
Ensure fuel tank is full of fuel (Para 2-16).

30 seconds at a time. Wait two minutes between engagements.
