While filling the fuel tank:

  • Keep the nozzle of the fuel-pump hose in solid contact with the tank opening to prevent producing a static spark.
  • Use caution and fill the tank slowly to avoid spilling fuel into the boat's bilge or into the water. Use an absorbent bilge cloth to catch drips or spills.
  • Never fill a tank to the brim—leave room for fuel to expand.
