Fuel and exhaust systems / Fuel tank cleaning and repair - general information

Warning: Petrol is extremely flammable, so take extra precautions when you work on any part of the fuel system. DonТt smoke, or allow open flames or bare light bulbs, near the work area. DonТt work in a garage where a natural gas-type appliance (such as a water heater or clothes dryer) with a pilot light is present. If you spill any fuel on your skin, rinse it off immediately with soap and water. When you perform any kind of work on the fuel system, wear safety glasses, and have a Class B type fire extinguisher on hand.

1 Any repairs to the fuel tank or filler neck should be carried out by a professional who has experience in this critical and potentiallydangerous work. Even after cleaning and flushing of the fuel system, explosive fumes can remain and ignite during repair of the tank.

2 If the fuel tank is removed from the vehicle, it should not be placed in an area where sparks or open flames could ignite the fumes coming out of the tank. Be especially careful inside garages where a natural gas-type appliance is located, because the pilot light could cause an explosion.
