Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive. You can be burned or seriously injured when handling fuel.

  • Stop the engine, and keep heat, sparks, and flame away.
  • Handle fuel only outdoors.
  • Wipe up spills immediately.


Do not insert the nozzle of a portable fuel container or any funnel other than the one provided with your vehicle. Doing so can damage the fuel system. Do not try to pry open or push open the sealed fuel tank with foreign objects. This can damage the fuel system and its seal.

Make sure the fuel in the portable fuel container is gasoline before you refuel.
