  • Dispense fuel only into approved containers.
  • Do not fill a container while it is inside a vehicle, in a vehicle's trunk, pickup bed, or on any surface other than the ground.
  • Bring the fill nozzle in contact with the inside of the fill opening before operating the nozzle. Contact should be maintained until the filling is complete.
  • Do not smoke while pumping fuel.
  • Do not use a cellular phone while pumping fuel.
