Transporting & Storing
Store and transport fuels to ensure they don’t leak or spill.
- Keep fuels in their original containers with the original labels if possible or in containers made for storing fuels. If the original labels are missing or unreadable, label the container with the contents.
- Ensure the containers are covered or sealed and that won’t leak or spill.
- Don't fill containers completely. Liquid fuels need room to expand.
- Avoid mixing fuels unless your engine requires it.
- Avoid breathing fuel fumes and carefully ventilate storage areas or vehicles when transporting.
- Transport fuels in the trunk and away from children.
- Never smoke around fuels.
