Where There's Gas, There Could Be Fire
Always fill your snowthrower with fuel before you start it, taking care to
avoid spilling any fuel on the engine or exhaust. Fill your tank outside of your garage or shed and
never smoke cigarettes or cigars while refueling any power equipment. Wipe up any spilled gas before
starting or re-starting your snowthrower.
Should you run out of fuel in the middle of snowblowing, turn the ignition off and allow the engine to
cool down before refueling. Even if it's cold outside, your snowthrowers engine can easily reach 150
degrees and the exhaust can become even hotter! If you accidentally spilled gasoline on the hot engine or
exhaust, there could be a fire, an explosion, or both.
Don't store your snowthrower in a building where open flame or sparks are present and never store your
snowthrower in your home or basement. Gasoline fumes are highly flammable and can be dangerous inhaled. A
garage, shed, or even a lean-to are better choices for storage.
Be sure to read your Owners Manual regarding any specific instructions you need to be aware of when
filling your snowthrower with fuel.
