the fuel tank cap and check the fuel level. Refill the tank
if the fuel level is low.
Add the fuel in a well-ventilated area before starting the
engine. If the engine has been running, allow it to cool.
Refuel carefully to avoid spilling fuel. Do not fill the fuel
tank completely. Fill tank to approximately 1 inch
(25 mm) below (L) the top of the fuel tank (J) to allow
for fuel expansion. If may be necessary to lower the fuel
level depending on operating conditions. After refueling,
tighten the fuel tank cap securely.

fumes may reach flames or sparks. Keep gasoline away
from appliance pilot lights, barbecues, electric appli-
ances, power tools, etc.
Spilled fuel is not only a fire hazard, it causes environ-
mental damage. Wipe up spills immediately.
Note: Fuel can damage paint and plastic. Be careful
not to spill fuel when filling your fuel tank. Damage
caused by spilled fuel is not covered under warranty.
