Gasoline Storage Safety Rules

  • Always store gasoline containers in a cool, well-ventilated area.
    Keep them away from any source of heat or sparks, such as a water heater, electric motor or car engine.
  • Never store gasoline in the house. If you must store gasoline, do so only in well-ventilated areas away from the house (e.g. a garage or shed).
  • Always store gas in approved safety containers.
  • Gasoline should always be tightly sealed.
    Seal both the spouts on the container and the vent.
  • Never use glass or plastic bottles for gasoline storage.
  • Always keep gasoline out of the reach of children.
  • Keep gasoline locked up when not in use.
