Filling a portable fuel container while it is in the vehicle can cause fuel vapors that can ignite either by static electricity or other means. You or others could be badly burned and the vehicle could be damaged. Always:

  • Use approved fuel containers.
  • Remove the container from the vehicle, trunk, or pickup bed before filling
  • Place the container on the ground.
  • Place the nozzle inside the fill opening of the container before dispensing fuel, and keep it in contact with the fill opening until filling is complete.
  • Fill the container no more than 95% full to allow for expansion.
  • Do not smoke, light matches, or use lighters while pumping fuel.
  • Avoid using cell phones or other electronic devices.
