Fuel Selector Switch on a PWC


After fueling, sniff the engine compartment for any evidence of gas fumes.

This switch can help you avoid becoming stranded without fuel.

Use the “Off” position when the PWC’s engine is turned off.

Use the “On” position while you are underway.

Use the “Reserve” position if you run out of fuel while underway. This will allow you to return to shore. Don’t forget to switch back to “On” after refueling.
