Safety Tips for fuel use and storage.

  • If you need to transport fuels such as diesel, petrol or oil, it should only be carried in approved containers.
  • Containers should never be filled right to the top. Petrol expands in warmer temperatures and spillage may occur. Be sure to keep it away from direct sunlight and any source of ignition or heat.
  • Carry containers in the trunk of the car with the trunk propped open at least 10 cm for adequate ventilation.
  • Fuel should be stored safely. Keep it outdoors and out of the reach of children.
  • When using a lawn mower or any petrol-powered tool, always let it cool completely (about 10 minutes for a standard mower) before refilling the tank.
  • Petrol should be used only as a fuel. Never use it as a cleaning solvent.
  • Remember to maintain all fuel-fired equipment in accordance with the manufacturer’s instruction.

  • Service equipment (burners   sometimes get clogged with  soot),    connections  between  the  cylinder and   the appliance  may  be  damaged  by   rodents  or  damaged   through  poor handling.
  • Leaks can occur from loose valves and pipe connections. LPG cylinders are strong and not easily damaged, although the valve at the top can be vulnerable to impact.
  • Use an approved cylinder. Beware of fake cylinders, methyl bromide and fire extinguishers among other containers have been illegally modified into LPG cylinders.
