Warning

Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explosive under certain conditions. Turn the ignition switch OFF. Do not smoke. Make sure the area is well-ventilated and free from any source of flame or sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot light.

_CAUTION_

If gasoline, solvent, water or any other liquid enters the canister, the canister's vapor absorbing capacity is greatly reduced. If the canister does become contaminated, replace it with a new one.

• To prevent the gasoline from flowing into or out of the canister, hold the separator perpendicular to the ground.

• Be sure to plug the return hose to prevent fuel spilling before fuel tank removal.

*if liquid or gasoline flows into the breather hose, remove the hose and blow it clean with compressed air.

• Connect the hoses according to the diagram of the system (see Cable, Wire, and Hose Routing section in the Appendix chapter). Make sure they do not get pinched or kinked.

• Route hoses with a minimum of bending so that the air or vapor will not be obstructed.
