    Reminder: Turn Off The Fuel

    I have a small area in my shop where items go that need to be sold. Well, this pressure washer is used, but sits on the edge of that area. The last time we rode we did not turn off the fuel and something in the carb let loose. Fuel all over the floor and a shop that stinks so bad, you cannot work in it.

    If you can turn off the fuel on anything you own, make sure you do it!

    The hazard from these fumes if there is a spark, could have devastating results to the shop also.

    Good safety tip.

    I have been there. Done that a few times with a weed eater. Todd is correct, fumes can be way more dangerous than the fluid on the flor. Not to mention they accelerate corrosion.
