Fuel Return Hose [A] (left side, red)
Remove the fuel tank, and place it on a flat surface.
Do not apply the load to the fuel outlet pipe of the fuel
For the California model, note the following.
For the California model, if gasoline, solvent, water
or any other liquid enters the canister, the canister's
vapor absorbing capacity is greatly reduced. If the
canister does become contaminated, replace it with
a new one.
Be sure to plug the evaporative fuel return hose to prevent
fuel spilling before fuel tank removal.
Be careful of fuel spillage from the fuel tank, if the fuel still
remains in the fuel tank and fuel pump.
Spilled fuel is flammable and can be explosive un-
der certain conditions. For California model, be
careful not to spill fuel through the return hose.
If liquid or gasoline flows into the breather hose, remove
the hose and blow it clean with compressed air.
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explo-
sive under certain conditions, creating the poten-
tial for serious burns. Store the fuel tank in an area
which is well-ventilated and free from any source of
flame or sparks. Do not smoke in this area. Place
the fuel tank on a flat surface and plug the fuel pipes
to prevent fuel leakage.
