					       Fueling Operations SOP
                     FUELING OPERATIONS (Gasoline/Diesel)
•   Turn off your engine.
•   Smoking is prohibited. Extinguish all sources of open flame and allow them to
    cool before entering the fuel islands.
•   Never place an object to block open the nozzle and walk away from the
    vehicle. Overfilling may result.
•   Stand upwind of the nozzle while refueling and try not to breathe the fumes.
•   Do not top off your tank. Even little drips that fall onto the pavement can
    contaminate soil, groundwater or surface water.
•   Do not leave your vehicle unattended while the pump is running.
•   Do not fill containers while in the bed of a pick-up truck that is protected by
    any type of bed liner. To eliminate any chance of explosion caused by static
    electricity, containers must be put on the ground.
•   Never attempt to start a siphon by mouth.
•   Store fuel in approved containers only. These containers are usually color
    coded and marked for a particular type of fuel. For instance, gasoline
    storage containers are usually red and marked "gasoline." Kerosene
    containers are blue.
•   Dispose of waste fuel properly. Never pour fuel onto the ground, or into
    storm drains, septic tanks, or sewers.
                         FUELING OPERATIONS (Propane)
•   Always wear gloves and safety goggles when fueling.
•   Remain with the filling vehicle at all times.
•   NEVER place an object to block open the fill nozzle and walk away from the
    vehicle. Overfilling will result.
•   SMOKING IS PROHIBITED. Extinguish all sources of open flame and allow
    them to cool before entering the fuel islands.
•   As fueling is taking place, watch the fixed liquid level valve. Release the
    handle as soon as a white fog-like stream is expelled from the valve. DO NOT
    OVERFILL.
•   IN THE EVENT OF A PROPANE LEAK, VEHICLE COLLISION OR FIRE: close the
    Liquid Service Valve located on the propane tank itself by turning it in a
    clockwise direction (if it is safe to do so.)
•   Never park propane powered vehicles in any enclosed structure without
    prior approval
