5.8. Cleaning and repair of a fuel tank


Any repair of a fuel tank or jellied mouth of a tank has to be carried out by the qualified personnel having experience in the organization and carrying out these so dangerous and responsible works. Even after cleaning and washing of a tank there can be gasoline vapors capable to cause explosion when carrying out repair work inside.

If the tank is removed from the car, it should not be placed in those places in which sparks or an open flame can cause ignition of the evaporations which are coming out a tank. Observe extra care in the garages equipped with sources of emergency lighting on natural gas.
