FUELING OPERATIONS (Gasoline/Diesel)

  1. Turn off your engine.
  2. Smoking is prohibited.  Extinguish all sources of open flame and allow them to cool before entering the fuel islands.
  3. Never place an object to block open the nozzle and walk away from the vehicle.  Overfilling may result.
  4. Stand upwind of the nozzle while refueling and try not to breathe the fumes.
  5. Do not top off your tank.  Even little drips that fall onto the pavement can contaminate soil, groundwater or surface water.
  6. Do not leave your vehicle unattended while the pump is running.
  7. 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.
  8. Never attempt to start a siphon by mouth.
  9. 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.
  10. Dispose of waste fuel properly.  Never pour fuel onto the ground, or into storm drains, septic tanks, or sewers.

 FUELING OPERATIONS (Propane)

  1. Always wear gloves and safety goggles when fueling.
  2. Remain with the filling vehicle at all times.
  3. NEVER place an object to block open the fill nozzle and walk away from the vehicle.  Overfilling will result. 
  4. SMOKING IS PROHIBITED.  Extinguish all sources of open flame and allow them to cool before entering the fuel islands.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.)
  7. Never park propane powered vehicles in any enclosed structure without prior approval from the WBSF Fire Department (x4-3333)..
