all engines and other devices that could cause
sparks, including the bilge blower. Do not use
electrical switches or accessories. Shut OFF
all stoves that may produce a spark or flame.

for types of fuel and oil. Use of improper products
can damage the engine and void the warranty.
1. Be sure to fuel in a well-lit area gasoline spills are

fueling. Splashback may occur and can be an eye
irritant and/or a fire hazard.
Although alcohol boosts the octane level of gasoline, it
also attacks the rubber fuel distribution lines and even
metal fuel system components. Alcohol will permeate
most fuel hoses and other components such as fuel
pump, gaskets and seals, and can also contribute to
fuel system contamination.
Avoid spillage. Wipe up any excess fuel immediately.
After pumping approximately 10 gallons of fuel into
the fuel tank, inspect the engine and fuel tank area
for any signs of leakage. If no leaks or other prob-
lems are detected, resume fueling.
The hoses we use in our boats are alcohol-resistant as
are the materials used by the engine manufacturers. If
only fuel containing alcohol is available, or the presence
of alcohol is unknown, you must perform more frequent
inspections for leaks and abnormalities.Any sign of leak-
age or deterioration requires your immediate attention.
Refer to the engine manufacturer’s recommendations
on fuel type and octane ratings.
Allow space at the top of the tank for thermal expan-
If fuel cannot be pumped in at a reasonable rate,
check for fuel vent blockage or a kink in the line.
