For the California and Southeast Asia models, if
gasoline, solvent, water or any other liquid enters
the canister, the canister's vapor absorbing capac-
ity 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.
For the California and Southeast Asia models, be
careful not to spill the gasoline through the return
hose. Spilled fuel is hazardous.
If liquid or gasoline flows into the breather hose, remove
the hose and blow it clean with compressed air.
Be careful of fuel spillage from the fuel tank since fuel still
remains in the fuel tank and fuel pump.
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.
